A girl with attitude. An all-powerful amulet. This could only mean trouble.
My name is Raine Benares. I’m a seeker. The people who hire me are usually happy when I find things. But some things are better left unfound…
Raine is a sorceress of moderate powers, from an extended family of smugglers and thieves. With a mix of street smarts and magic spells, she can usually take care of herself. But when her friend Quentin, a not-quite-reformed thief, steals an amulet from the home of a powerful necromancer, Raine finds herself wrapped up in more trouble than she cares for. She likes attention as much as the next girl, but having an army of militant goblins hunting her down is not her idea of a good time. The amulet they’re after holds limitless power, derived from an ancient, soul-stealing stone. And when Raine takes possession of the item, it takes possession of her.
Now her moderate powers are increasing beyond anything she could imagine—but is the resumé enhancement worth her soul?
Raine Benares is a seeker, she finds missing things for people. And when her friend/partner ends up going back to the "dark side" of things she decides to get involved. However, she never expected it to go so far, and for her to end up finding out more about herself she never knew, and never really wanted to know.
This book brings in a large amount of suspense, action, and a hint of romance, with a kick ass heroine who cares more about her friends then anything else.
However, at times I felt like this book slightly dragged a little bit, and it semi repeated itself a little bit. Other than that I did like the book, but it wasn't really a favorite of mine.
For a first book in the series there was a lot of information, which is to be expected, and there was also some action as well.
If your into the fantasy type of books with a strong heroine than this is for you, I just felt at times it was slightly boring.
