Summary:

The night Quin Kincaid takes her Oath, she will become what she has trained to be her entire life. She will become a Seeker. This is her legacy, and it is an honor.
   As a Seeker, Quin will fight beside her two closest companions, Shinobu and John, to protect the weak and the wronged. Together they will stand for light in a shadowy world.
   And she’ll be with the boy she loves–who’s also her best friend.
   But the night Quin takes her Oath, everything changes.
   Being a Seeker is not what she thought. Her family is not what she thought. Even the boy she loves is not who she thought.
   And now it’s too late to walk away.

~My Thoughts~

I saw a lot of hype for this book. It was a “popular” wanted book. Suppose to be a twist between Divergent and The Hunger Games well I was definitely disappointed. I actually dnfed this book at 25%. First off the whole almost love triangle with one of the guys being the cousin of the girl….. YUCK!!! THAT IS SO GROSS WHO WANTS TO READ ABOUT THAT?! Not me for sure. After that I was unsure if I wanted to continue. I don’t want to know what happens between them like that. Hell cousins are not suppose to like each other. I tried to continue after that but the book lacked so much. It was boring by 25% all I knew was that Quinn and her cousin took their oaths. She didn’t like it. It wasn’t what she thought it was going to be. Her father is horrible but we don’t know why yet. Some special sword is called the athame but we don’t know really anything else about it. By the end of the first quarter of the book I felt like I should have known more. More should have been happening. It was all vague and boring. I didn’t want to read and I was getting moody because I wasn’t reading. I have to read at least some everyday or my mood sours. I am being serious it really happens. So I put this book aside told myself I would come back to it and I just could never pick it back up. Didn’t want to, dreaded doing it. I don’t know about y’all but if I am dreading doing something it just won’t happen so this book I just Dnf. If any of you have read this book or tried to read it did you actually finish it? Does it get better or did I just save myself a bunch of time??
