Genre: Fantasy Young Adult
Series: ( Seeker #1 )

Quin Kincaid has been put through years of brutal training for what she thinks is the noble purpose of becoming a revered ‘Seeker’.

Only when it’s too late does she discover she will be using her new-found knowledge and training to become an assassin. Quin's new role will take her around the globe, from a remote estate in Scotland to a bustling, futuristic Hong Kong where the past she thought she had escaped will finally catch up with her.

My Review:

I received this book for review from NetGally.  A seeker is a person trained to help people. But Quin and her cousin Shinobo soon find out its not what they are being trained to do. Quin also finds out there are secrets being kept from them. There's danger at every turn and non- stop action. Even a love triangle at first I did not see coming. Once you start you will not want to put it down. I give this book five stars.
