"A wonderful fantasy of light and dark!"

Medea has vengeance on the mind. Once the mistress of the powerful lord Mako, she is his creature in every way, right down to the evil ways inside her. Now, she has discovered she might be able to recover the Orb of Dalis, a creation by the Goddess herself, and by using it, she will be able to control the world. Also at the top of her list of things to accomplish is the destruction of Iliana, the Trancer that usurped her place with Mako and caused his death.

Even though she escaped Mako's cruelty and vileness, Iliana did not manage to do this without cost to herself. Though she was trained as Trancer, Iliana can no longer access this part of herself. When her lord, Talon, finds out about Medea's quest to find the Orb of Dalis, he commands the trainer of his warriors, Lore, to also begin a quest for the Orb. After a vision, which both Lore and Iliana share, they know they must undertake the quest together. After repeatedly asking Lore to train her in weapons, Iliana finally manages to become his Apprentice.

So now, the two of them undertake the quest, Master and Apprentice. There is an attraction between them and has always been, though neither of them has acted upon it. They must find four talismans, which will lead them to the Orb. However, neither one of them is aware they are being followed by Medea and a Reaper.

Will Iliana and Lore be able to pass the tests to find the Orb? Will Iliana ever be able to reach her Trancer gifts again? What of Medea?

THE SEEKER is a wonderful fantasy, filled with both light and dark. Sharron McClellan has done a wonderful job of showing both the light and the dark within Iliana. In the beginning of our story, she is filled with hatred and rage and darkness. As she and Lore become closer through the different tests they face, she begins to learn to control her dark side and eventually, allows the light inside her. She must learn to come to grips with her past and overcome it. Lore is a warrior through and through, big, strong and brave. He knows Iliana must learn to control her anger before she will ever have a chance at regaining her Trancer powers. We also have the added dangers of the ones following our pair on their quest. If you enjoy a good fantasy, I highly recommend Sharron McClellan's THE SEEKER!

SUMMARY

Sequel to The Given. Trancer Iliana was once imprisoned by the wicked Reaper, Lord Mako. Now she is free--but only in body. Her mind and soul remain captive because she has lost her mystical gift to read the unseen currents of life that surround all living things. She would do anything to forget her haunting past and be free of the fear and anger that consume her. Lore, a Warrior by blood, defied tradition to help a friend. In his new position, he discovers a Iliana, damaged by the defeated Reaper Lord. But their world is not safe. A vision convinces him that she is the key to his latest assignment--to find the Orb of Dalis. Once every 100 seasons, the Gate of Dalis opens the world of Danu to complete annihilation or rejuvenation. Iliana and Lore embark on a quest, braving deadly trials, to seek the four talismans that are the key to finding the Orb of Dalis. But they are not alone in their quest. Medea, a Reaper and once Mako's Mistress, also seeks the Orb. She would do anything to gain it--including kill all who stand in her way. The fate of the world of Danu lies in their hands?
