Seekers (Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 2) is a great continuation to the series filled with adventure, action, and plenty of wonder.

The Good

  • Interesting story
  • The story under “Mud” was captivating.
    • The other stories were good, but, in my opinion, it seemed the author was most excited about “Mud” or “Trees” because of how the two stories converge.
    • The false idolatry imagery was interesting
  • As with the first in the series, Refugees (Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 1), Seekers had great detailed writing.
    • “It had started out pleasantly enough. I was a marbled duck sitting in a bed of swaying reeds surrounded by my flock. as the wind blew across the tops of the reed, it had created a mournful sound. When I looked up, the clouds above me formed an inviting puffy white throne. But then everything changed…”
  • Like the first book, there were strong Christian themes throughout.
  • While the last book made me wonder, I had no issues with the Christian theology in this book.
    • Probably the most creative Christian Fantasy book I’ve read with strong Biblical themes.
      • Christian themes woven into the characters lifestyle: not preachy.
  • Overall, this was a nice clean book with a realistic representation of violence and idolatry, without glorifying it.
    • I believe this aspect is important, so instead of shielding people from sin, show the darkness of it, and then contrast the darkness to the “light”, which in this case is a god named Adon.

The Bad

  • The struggle is real with self-published authors an editing. It’s expensive to edit a book, and often through rounds of editing, different issues could be missed. That being said…
    • I do not remember as many editing issues as with the first book, but there were quite a few obvious errors in the first quarter of the book. They don’t bother me enough to hurt a good story, but the mistakes might bother some.

The Unsure*

  • N/A

*My opinion: what I didn’t care for or do not prefer. This will not lower a rating unless it overly distracts from the story.

An excellent read and if you’re interested, check out “Seekers (Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 2)” on Amazon.

But, if you have not read the first book of the series see my review, for Refugee, here.
