Rin had been seeing images in his head of Ree for the last five years and when he went to stay with his aunt he was excited to see the girl in the flesh, standing outside his aunt's house. Jaron and Ree were curious and wanted to find out how the young boy could dream about her; a girl he had never met, and it took a walk down a trail in the nearby woods to find the answers.
`Seen' is the opening book in a fantasy adventure story for young readers, I would say 12 years and over. The children travel through a portal into another world, where they learn that Ree is the Wanderer, Rin is the Watcher and Jaron is the Protector', and that it is their destiny to complete a quest to save this world. They have no choice, if they refuse they won't be able to get back through the portal and go home and so their journey begins.
The story itself was pretty slow off the mark, it was a little mundane and dragged, failing to grab my attention right away. As the story progressed and we moved into the other realm the pace, picked up. I'm wondering if perhaps the first chapter should have started with a scene from the other world thus hooking the reader immediately before slowing the pace with the background info, Younger readers are impatient and if you don't get them in the first chapter you run the risk of losing them and that would be my only worry with this book.
Written in the generic Fantasy style I didn't find anything new or fresh but I'm sure that is because I have read so many books in this genre and that shouldn't be an issue for the target audience.

Jaron has always watched out for his younger brother, Rin, making sure other kids don't tease him too much. Then Jaron sees Rory, and it's instant attraction, and astonishment, because she's the person his brother has been drawing for years.
These three young people, Wanderer Rory, Watcher Rin, and Protector Jaron travel through Portal Stones to another land, where a rogue wanderer works to take over. They're faced with being unprepared for what they're asked to do, and a journey that might or might not bring them home.
Heather Sutherlin's fantasy quest begins very well, so well I found myself aching for the next paragraph, the next chapter. Sutherlin captures Rory's desire to travel, to see more of the world than the small town where she lives, even though everyone else is happy to stay put. I feel as if Rory was the unsatisfied soul I was once myself, a feeling many young people will empathize with.
As the story progresses, the journey never slows it's pace, no matter whether the action is nothing more than a celebratory meal or a battle. The characters, unprepared as they are, manage to discover deep within themselves what they must do to survive, and win over the Betrayer.
A story such as this will appeal to all teens, boys and girls. The strong characters wanting to test their boundaries, to learn as much as they can have their faults, but are also good role models. At the end, I must confess, I did read the opening for the second book and find myself waiting for it to release. Kudos to Sutherlin for writing such an appealing tale.
I also found the story well crafted and the romance is touching, not tawdry. The ending is a bit of a cliff hanger which I don't mind when the story is good and the sequel is available. And it is! ENJOY.
