Truth Seer is the first book in the Truth Seer Trilogy and debut novel by Kay L. Moody. This is a young adult sci-fi novel, with fantasy, action, adventure, kidnapping, terrorists, danger, traps, discoveries, secrets, super-powers, futuristic, obstacles, drama, and life changing situations.
The story is set 103 years into the future- where humans have developed interesting abilities. The world building in the story was particularly good, laying a solid foundation on which to build this imaginative tale. Ms. Moody has produced and original, descriptive and detail-oriented tale that held my attention, gave me pause, and made me think.
When I first read the premise, I had initially thought having the ability to see the truth in people/situations, would be a really great thing to be able to do- but over the course of the story, I decided that maybe it would be more of a burden than a gift.
All the characters are well crafted, but I feel that they weren’t really put through ‘their pace’ or really ‘tested’ much at all- and therefore not given the opportunity to really develop and grow as the story evolved… but, this is the first book in a trilogy so maybe there is more development to come in the other book/s.
I enjoyed the book, but did notice a few ‘teething problems’, and there was a lot of ‘telling’, instead of ‘showing’. But, again these didn’t detract from the overall storyline and I imagine that these minor issues will be ironed out come the next instalment/s.
I look forward to exploring the rest of this series!
Thank you, Ms. Moody!
