The Soul Seekers bk 3. Macmillan Children's Books, 2013. ISBN: 9781447206835.
(Age: Teens) Recommended. Daire Santos is not your average girl, she is a seeker. One of many in a long ancestral line in the small town of Enchantment, Daire with the added wisdom of her grandmother Paloma and the Elders as well as her unique collection of friends fight the evil family that rules the town. They are the Richters, a family full of demon transforming men and women with the spirit animal, sneaky coyote. When a previously foretold prophecy is changed, the effects have a significant effect on Daire and her friends as well as her fated partner Dace. As a result Daire meets a new person from the elusive Upperworld but is he a friend or an ally? Did the change in the prophecy happen for a good reason?
Mystic by Alyson Noel is a fast paced novel that is packed full of mystery and action as the plot is revealed piece by piece and the reader remains as in the dark as the main characters throughout the winding and twisting plot. Mystic is the third book in the breathtaking Soul Seeker Series of four (Fated, Echo, Mystic and Horizon). This book is a definite recommendation for any teen who likes magic, mystery and action but it is greatly recommended that this series be read from the first unlike some books in a series that you can pick up and read regardless. This is a must have and a brilliantly entertaining read.
