I had the opportunity to visit New Mexico while doing research for the SOUL SEEKERS and I can’t wait to return and see some familiar faces—plus meet readers in a few cities I haven’t had the chance to visit yet!

I’m also excited to share that FATED has been named a TOP CHOICE by Flamingnet Teen Book Reviews! Here’s what they had to say about it:

"I loved this book. All the characters were beautifully developed including some of the minor characters. . . I for one had high expectations of this book because of EVERMORE and FATED defiantly met those standards." TOP CHOICE


FATED has also been named a TOP PICK by RT Magazine and a PW PICK by Publishers Weekly!

There’s also a nice mention of FATED in Midwest Book Review:

"The first Soul Seekers urban fantasy is a superb thriller starring a "troubled" young lady who learns she holds the fate of the world in her hands. The key to this absorbing tale is the heroine who makes the Noel mythos seems genuine as she enters the underworld in a soul searching rescue mission while wondering whom does she trust. Filled with twists, this is a winning opening act."
— Midwest Book Review

The FATED trailer will be released on Tuesday, so stay tuned for that! I’m so thrilled with the way it turned out and I can’t wait to share it with you, but until then, here are a few preview pictures as featured on Maximum Shelf!


Shelf Awareness also had some kind words to share about FATED:

“In Noël's capable hands, Daire straddles the otherworldly elements of her calling as a shaman (including a captivating scene of Daire's vision quest) and thefamiliar trappings of a "normal" life as a high school student. . .Daire's sense of humor balances out her dark visions. . .The perils of high school often feel as threatening as navigating the Lower-, Upper- and Middleworld that Daire's destiny as a shaman requires of her. Readers will feel the pull of Daire's quest just as forcefully as Daire herself does, and will count the days until the release of Echo,
the second installment, this fall.” 
–Jennifer M. Brown—Shelf Awareness

Okay, that’s all for now—more news coming soon! And don’t forget to visit the SOUL SEEKERS official website to build your own dream catcher, find your animal spirit, and more!
