Publisher's Summary

Just beyond the reality we see, mysteries stretch into infinity.

Jake Carter was just an ordinary kid, but during his freshman year in high school, he became truly extraordinary. It all begins when Jake’s only friend Johnny almost died in a tragic accident. He was the sole survivor of an expedition during an annual class trip to the Santa Lucia Mountains. He was trapped underground for nine days after the cave they were exploring collapsed. 

Weak and lifeless, he was found along the Pacific coast, nearly fifteen miles away from the entrance. While underground, Johnny experienced many strange things, and now, Jake was seeing them too! It was during this time that they discover an ancient secret - reality is merely an illusion. 

A mystical universe swirls just out of sight, yet they never take notice. They’ve been forced by everyone around them to ignore one basic fact - that their power is limitless. This simple twist of fate and the several months that followed changed Jake’s life forever. With a small group of high school outcasts, they begin a strange journey. By giving up the reality they’ve always known, they grow stronger every day. Their destiny lies before them as they tumble helplessly into a world of power, energy, and terrifying beings. Once they accept the truth and reject the world they’ve always known, they finally begin to see.

I totally LOVED this!!

This was such an amazing book from beginning to end! This author was incredibly descriptive and so much fun to read. I really hope there are more books. It might have been one of the best sci-fi kind of books that I have read in a long time. It was very thought provoking. The narration was also excellent!!

This book was given to me upon my request. I am providing a voluntary and honest review.

interesting and a bit bizarre.

I received a free copy of this book for review purposes, my review is voluntary and unbiased

This book was strange and a bit psychedelic, it focused heavily on perceptive reality, it's part Descartes, part multiverse theory, and part unseen universe.

The idea dehind this book is great, its pretty original and thought provoking.

It is however a bit slow early on and I didn't particularly like any of the main characters. Especially Jacob the main pov character is pretty insufferable. He's not poorly written, he's just pretty self absorbed a bit of a jerk.

overall the book is good even though i disliked the main character.

The Seers

What an interesting concept. K. G. Broas was so descriptive, I could definitely visualize what was going on. I do think this would make a visually stunning movie.

Brad Matherly did a fine job with the narration.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Overly complicated

Interesting premise. One of the rare occasions where I can guarantee this would be a better movie. The visuals would help and the dumb down for the screen would benefit this overly complicated mythos. Preachy at points on the benefits of not feeding your ego. I tend to agree, but at points was a bit much. The narrators normal tone is fine but had no range for different characters. All that being said I would continue the series. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left my honest review.

The seers

A few reviewer's thought the story and narrator were ok. I would have to disagree. I believe it all boils down to what you like. I have to say before I carry on that I do not know this author or narrator and have not read/listened to anything written or narrated by either of them.
The first thing that attracted my attention was the title, I read the blurb and thought I would give it ago.
The beginning does start of slow but in my opinion the author wrote in such a way that had me hooked. The beginning was more of background information, however, the author did it so well and it was voiced by a good narrator, I did not switch off like a usually do when other authors it do this way.
I thought the characters are well written, I could picture these young adults in my mind and it is an original story.
I know this book is not everyone's cup of tea, but if you like sci-fi, speculative fiction then this book is for you.
