Arwen Elys Dayton is back with book two in the Seeker series—TRAVELER (Delacorte Press/ On Sale January 12, 2016/ Ages 14 & up), a heart-stopping adventure story that delves further into the story of the ancient Seekers, Dreads, and family legacy that began in last year’s Seeker (now available in paperback).
Quin Kincaid is a Seeker. Her legacy is an honor, an ancient role passed down for generations. But what she learned on her Oath night changed her world forever.
Quin pledged her life to deception. Her legacy as a Seeker is not noble, but savage. Her father, a killer. Her uncle, a liar. Her mother, a casualty. And the boy she once loved is out for vengeance, with her family in his sights.
Yet Quin is not alone. Shinobu, her oldest companion, might now be the only person she can trust. The only one who wants answers as desperately as she does. But the deeper they dig into the past, the darker things become. Long-vanished Seeker families, shadowy alliances, and now something else: a sinister plan begun generations ago is resurfacing, with the power to destroy them all. The past is close. And it will destroy everyone.
Chock-full of action, TRAVELER is sure to keep readers entertained and on the edge of their seats. After reading its shocking cliffhanger, fantasy fans of all ages will be clamoring for the final book in the trilogy, Disruptor, coming in 2017. And while they are waiting, Seeker series fans can also delve into Maud’s life in the original digital short The Young Dread, available now.
Today we welcome Arwen for a video interview!
