This book is definitely a book that I would recommend if you like paranormal activities, suspense and love.
Why you ask?
Sage Matthews returns home to Cryton to sort out her Nan's belongings after her Nan is murdered. Detective Ethan Blade is the officer that is assigned to the case to find the murderer and to put an end to a serial killers spree as Celeste was the third victim before it becomes common knowledge to the public.
When Ethan goes to see Sage for the first time to inform her that he was the officer in charge of her Nan's case and to find out if her Nan had any enemies that she knew of, he is instantly attracted to her and knows that it is a dangerous feeling to possess about a victims relative but on entering the shop the hairs on the back of his neck stand up and his pulse raced for no reason and he feels uneasy and he has no answer as to why he feels this way.
Sage has been having feeling of being watched too and and strange things have been happening to her in the shop and flat above, her Nan's friends have been staying away and her cat Liquorice will not come in the building.
Sage and Ethan are drawn together even though Ethan tries to keep things professional. Sage has a feeling that he is someone that is special as when he touches her a calming effect comes over her. However, Ethan does not believe in the paranormal unknown so this throws spanners into their relationship from an early start, and with Sage being the Seer's daughter - the paranormal are drawn to her like moths to a flame.Read more ›
Sage and Ethan belong together - you know this from the moment they meet. Instead of the usual miscommunications to deal with though, these two have a serial killer, a paranormal investigative unit, and a lack of information both from friends and family, and also the unit that Ethan works for. Both Sage and Ethan are excellent main leads, with sassy attitudes and wit to spare. I loved how they were when they were together, although I did want to kick Ethan at one point, just on Sage's behalf you understand!
I got dragged away from this book late in the evening by my husband, as I had an exceedingly early start the next day. This didn't stop me from thinking about the book and what I had read for well over an hour after the lights went out, as well as dreaming about it! If you want a spooky supernatural suspense, with a heat warning too, then I can most definitely recommend this book.
Although it does round off nicely for this book, you are left with a natural cliffhanger which will leave you aching to get your hands on book 2!

The story is set in Cryton, a small town where a beautiful young lady, Sage Matthews, has returned to deal with her recently deceased grandmother’s shop and home, after her sudden and unforeseen death.
Sage’s instincts tell her something is off, both to do with her grandmother’s death and the strange goings on in her old home and we quickly learn that all is not as it seems. With the help of the dangerously attractive Detective Sargent Ethan Blade and a team of Paranormal Investigators lead by Mark Collins, Sage sets out on a journey to untangle the mystery of what really happened to her grandmother and the chilling presence in her home, but along the way discovers things about herself, her grandmother and Cryton which make her realise she is playing an important part in something much bigger and darker than we first perceive.
The Seers Daughter has a great balance of chilling suspense and steamy romance and is very well written. I found myself getting lost in this book for hours at a time, and was left thinking about it long after I had put it down.
Packed full of twists and turns, bursting with emotion and passion and with several captivating storylines and themes, there is plenty going on at any one time. Just when you want more of one sub story, it flips to the next, leaving you desperate to know what happens next. Athena brings together seemingly unconnected events brilliantly, and in an unexpected twist that will leave you craving for the next installment.
A great start to what is going to be a brilliant series! Highly recommended.

1. The pacing is way TOO slow for my taste. Its like molasses-in-January slow. Around chapter 8 I just gave up. Nothing's even happened yet!
2. Too much grieving for grandma. I understand that the murder was sudden and obviously upsetting, but OMG her mental whining about it got to be a little grating after a while. Every other word is another lament about how her life was snuffed out before her time...and a bunch of regrets about why I didn't do this...how come I hadn't done that....Good Grief, the woman was in her 70s or 80s, its not like her life was snuffed out at 20. It seems to me that Sage should have been more angry, and focused on catching the killer Instead she's sitting around shoveling junk into boxes and whining about how unfair it all it.
3. The weird inconsistency about her and her grandmother's status/popularity Crayton is a small town, this is made obvious. Through Sage’s thoughts and memories its established that Nan was pretty much an outcast, with just a tiny circle of friends. Likewise, its been like this for years...since we learn through Sage’s thoughts that she was teased mercilessly by all her classmates at school and had no friends. In fact, she makes the point that the whole town kinda made fun and shunned them. So, why then does she tell the detective that her Nan was loved by everyone? And who were the multitude of people at the funeral…if they were shunned? Sage even says that no one’s been to visit the shop since She's been there, no ones' checked on her or express sympathy or anything. No one sent flowers or cards. Not to mention that Sage herself is still being ridiculed (as evidenced by the three women who walk by the shop and poke fun at Sage being a witch. It’s a small town so…they can’t be both shunned and loved at the same time. I found this confusing.
As for the characters, I'll just touch on the main 2. The book ends with Sage where I would have liked her to have begun: strong and confident. It just drives me a little nuts to see a female lead that's a bit weak, especially when she's always been surrounded by such strong women in her life. Ethan seriously drove me insane. He's a detective of the highest caliber. He's extremely accomplished, yet he reacts irrationally every time he sees Sage, even from the first time they meet. I like a bit of that over protective jealousy in my romances, but not to the point he took it. Still, despite those very few flaws, of just my own opinion, both were quick to capture your attention and worked themselves into your heart before you even realized it.
I was disappointed at the ending, though. I realize this book is to be a part of a series, so I expected there to be threads left dangling. I seriously double checked my kindle to make sure I wasn't missing a page or more when I came to the end. It stopped so abruptly. There were several things resolved and brought to a conclusion, so it's not as aggravating as a cliffhanger. It's just....you will want more. I really can't explain it. It's not just 'I can't wait for book 2'! I feel a little cheated out of some more information. Would it stop me from reading this book in hindsight: absolutely not! Will it stop me from reading the series further: absolutely not. It's just a little bit of a yearning left unresolved.
I gave this book 5 stars because it really is well done. I'm amazed at the good editing. I found myself in love with the characters very quickly. I really like where the story took me and where it is heading. I'm anxious for book 2. I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
