Review quote

"Imara and the reader learn together that although her ability is incredible, she has to be careful not to let it blind her. Imara is creative, assertive, and strong, still her journey of self-discovery is relatable and endearing. Moody creates powerful imagery that captivates the reader and left me begging for more."

"Sci-Fi with a touch of dystopian fantasy, this book is a must read. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop."

"I liked how strong and self sufficient Imara was. She has a strong personality, and trusts her own instincts. Also, the twist in the end was a good one, and I totally did not see it coming!"

"The moment I started reading Truth Seer I was sucked into the futuristic world of hilas. As I read the book the characters started to become real to me. They had struggles, wants and desires just like I did. It was also fun to see the characters mature throughout the story."

"My favorite thing about Truth Seer was definitely the characters! I was drawn to Imara and loved how complicated she was. She is constantly seeing the truth around her, but the truth about herself is much harder for her to see."

"I loved, loved, loved the diversity in this book. I liked the characters and I enjoyed the dynamic between them. It was very refreshing to see how human (and so inherently flawed) they were."

"Readers will be spellbound as they follow Imara through the unexpected twists and turns of the novel's completely engrossing plot. Truth Seer is an exciting and provocative tale that weaves together difficult questions about political morality and the philosophy of truth with an engaging love story and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments."

"This book was such a fun read. I just loved all the new technology and hila powers, they were so fun to imagine and felt believable. Also this book has a love story, which I'm a total sucker for. If you love romantic scifi, you'll love this book!"

"Imara, the main character is given this immense ability that gives her an almost omniscient view of the world and people around her, but she is still in the process of learning to wield it properly which becomes a major source of distress in her life. Her voice is strong and wavers when it makes sense."

"This book gave me the shivers. Sci-Fi Fantasy is not my normal genre that I typically am drawn too, but I was oddly rapt with this book. The characters were very intriguing and Imara is absolutely one interesting character."

"To be able to detect honesty, seems like something everyone would want. But this storyline opens up ramifications to that talent that most would never think about. This authors creativity is astounding!"

"I really enjoyed reading this, it had what I wanted the hunger games to be. I liked the characters and the story itself, I liked that the characters were flawed."

"This riveting YA sci-fi novel gripped my attention immediately. I found it well developed and well written. I had difficulty walking away from the book once I started and found myself thinking about the characters and plot when I put the book down."
