Whenever I pick up a book written by Cecy Robson, I expect nothing but sheer awesomeness and Unearthed (Death Seeker) book 1, offered all that and more. Not only was it a unique and well-written story, it was awesome and captivating from start to finish.
The story was loads of fun. The interactions with the characters were both fun and solemn. Every moment felt real. I found myself invested in the lives of the characters. I feared for them in the face of danger and cheered them on in the heat of the battle. It was a pleasure spending time with these awesome characters, at least the good ones. My favourites are Olivia, Ryker, (main characters), Jane, Stevie and Marco (secondary characters). The evil ones were ok, but thank goodness, this is a fantasy, as I for one would not want to encounter those things in reality.
The attraction between the main characters leapt from the pages. The sexual tension was so thick not even a knife could penetrate it. There was so much going on Olivia and Ryker could not find time to give into the attraction. In addition, the baggage between these two proved to the biggest dampener.
The action was off the charts. The fight scenes kept me on the edge of my seat, and every moment leading up to those segments were so nerve-wracking.
I found myself immersed in the unique world the author created. Readers are introduced to a world where the King of Death and the Queen of Life were actual people and were attracted to each other. Also in this world Faes dwell among humans, not because they want to, but because their world had been destroyed by the Death Hounds and those who survived the wrath of the hounds managed to escape to earth, where they made a new life. This new life, however, was not without its challenges as they had to be on their guard at all times. they never knew when death will come for them. The death hounds were determined to destroy every living Fae.
Conclusion / Recommendation
This is an exciting start to the series, and I am eager to see what’s next in store for Ryker and Olivia. If you love fast paced and action packed stories with awesome characters, then I recommend you get a copy of Unearthed.
Excerpt from Unearthed
…in the Glen a nightclub where the Fae like to gather
Lights flash and magical mist pours across the dance floor, allowing privacy to those desperate for touch. Fae aren’t plentiful, and neither are establishments for us to gather. That’s what makes the Glen fun. It doesn’t just bring my kind together, it frees us. No glamour, no pretending. We discuss magic and the old realm, curse Death for destroying it and celebrate our survival.
With a shimmy and a shake, lavender and silver wings sprout from Dahlia’s back. She stretches, relishing the feel of simply being herself. She winks at me, her glimmering lavender eyes and lips radiant.
A drunk mountain troll stumbles between us. She releases my hand, allowing him through before clasping my hand and guiding us through the gyrating swarm of bodies. “Let’s have a drink, darling.”
I squeeze her hand. Fae are affectionate beings. In the human world, we cage our need to caress, embrace, and make love. It’s a way to keep our identities secret and another way to prevent Death from finding us.
Bill’s broken glamour was a result of a stolen kiss. It revealed his form to a human and worst of all damaged his talisman. Our talismans remain the only way to hide from those who hunt us. Without them, it’s a death warrant with our executioners often seconds from being collected.
A banshee sprints away from the bar and through the swarm of Fae. With all the grace of a swan, she leaps into the air and straddles the male who entered behind us. “David!” she screeches. “Sorry,” she adds when we groan and cover our ears.
“David” loses his tiny accountant persona, morphing into a giant cyclops with a long blond Mohawk. He laughs, catching the banshee when her legs break free of his widening waist.
She screeches. Again. The thought of that voice in the throes of passion makes me cringe. “David is going to need serious earplugs to get through the night,” I mutter.
Dahlia giggles, her laughter like wind chimes in the soft breeze. “Perhaps. But it will be worth it, darling,” she sings.
Fae was once a flourishing paradise. Until Death turned greedy and destroyed it, targeting the creatures who inhabited it. Those who survived escaped to Earth’s realm, but Death wasn’t far behind . . .
Olivia Finn is just another pixie trying to blend in among humans and hide from the death hounds who devoured her family. Clinging to the talisman that keeps her veiled from those who hunt her, she believes she is safe. . .. Until Death finds her and discovers she’s immune to its grip.
Now that Olivia’s power is unearthed, she is sought by Fae who see her as their savior and stalked by dark entities compelled to destroy her. Can she trust the King of the Dead who has sworn to train and protect her? Or should she obey her instincts that warn he desires more?
Olivia can no longer hide from Death. To survive, she must seek it.
