THE FARSEEKERS by Isobelle Carmody
Chaos, love, and Misfits are all bound together on a quest.
'When the Great White scourges the earth, the surviving mutants develop extraordinary mind powers. Feared and despised by the tyrannical ruling council, the Misfits are persecuted and forced into hiding...
Now their refuge, Obernewtyn, is under threat. Only Elspeth and her allies have any hope of resisting the forces of evil. But even with their mysterious powers, can they survive the treacherous journey?
So much is at stake. And time is running out...
Sent on an expedition to the lowlands Elspeth Gordie Guildmistress of the farseekers sets out on a quest with a team of other misfits to recover a before time library and rescue a powerful misfit. But will they make it back in time to save Obernewtyn before the pass closes with snow or is it too late for Elspeth.'
The Farseekers is the second book in The Obernewtyn Chronicles and it is even better then first book. The story presumably takes place many months after the events of the first book and follows Elspeth Gordie and fellow Misfits who have created their own government in the once frightening Oprhanage Obernewtyn, that is now a safe haven for all Misfits. The Misfits are searching cities from the Beforetimes for clues to their creation and the worlds demise and discover a library that is a true treasure and this sends them on a great adventure that leads to new Misfits with incredible talents, new allies and enemies and death.
The writing in this book improved from the first book and I was never bored. I couldn't put it down! The characters were so real and interesting and their attitudes and struggles where real and awesome. The pace in this book is great and your learning new things on every page. Though it was a bit confusing with all the characters and new information that the author just gives the reader as if its something they should already know, the story was still really good. Its really fun to read how they learn about our time, while we learn about theirs at the same time.
The book was so good and has so many interesting things going on, that you will be on the edge of your seat waiting for the next story.
With A Score of 4.6!
