Quin Kincaid is a Seeker. Her legacy is an honor, an ancient role passed down for generations. But what she learned on her Oath night changed her world forever.

Quin pledged her life to deception. Her legacy as a Seeker is not noble, but savage. Her father, a killer. Her uncle, a liar. Her mother, a casualty. And the boy she once loved is out for vengeance, with her family in his sights.

Yet Quin is not alone. Shinobu, her oldest companion, might now be the only person she can trust. The only one who wants answers as desperately as she does. But the deeper they dig into the past, the darker things become. Long-vanished Seeker families, shadowy alliances, and now something else: a sinister plan begun generations ago is resurfacing, with the power to destroy them all. The past is close. And it will destroy everyone.



I would like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy in advance for an honest review.

Traveler was so wonderful!!! The characters, world building, details and most of the answers I had been wanting were all there. Of course, not all the answers, you have to leave somethings for the last book. Traveler was even better than Seeker in that I had been building through Seeker for these moments, that I finally got in Traveler. I love the journey that Arwen has the characters take and the struggles they have along the way. All of this strengths them and prepares them for what is to come.

Traveler takes place just after Seeker, only two weeks have passed.  Shinobu is recovering in the hospital from his injuries and Quin is by his side making sure he gets the help he needs. Did I mention Shinobu, swoon!!! I have loved him since Seeker and his first section on his POV. I just will always love him, and will pull for him no matter what! Quin has been given a new athame by Maud also know as (Young Dread). The athame helps her travel to different locations. They need this when her father finds them, and still continues to wage war.


Maud is training John to balance the justice she feels he is owed. She agrees to this but only through her terms, since she knows John has not acted completely with honor to this point. She feels that the she can uphold the training as long as the codes are followed.

New enemies and evils will immerse. You gain several new POV’s and both really add something great to the story-line.  Traveler will still have you asking questions all the way through it and glad you read it to get the answers.

Traveler had me flipping through the pages to find out the answers to all the secrets being kept. Arwen created a wonderful and unique concept that I fell in love with. I will say that it has a cliffhanger ending! I can’t wait for the third book, Disruptor. I am giving Traveler 4.5 out of 5 stars.

  1. Answer to question for entry: I don’t mind different POVs as long as it’s clearly written. As for the build… I can’t say I like 50/50…it’s more like I am greedy and make it 50/75. 50% world build and 75% character build. I like to “see” my surroundings, but want to know my characters in depth.


  2. Thank you for the giveaway.
    I think it is world building for me. Because I feel like there have been loads of fantasy+dystopian in recent years, so if the world (and rules within the world) should be unique, and communicated as something visually rich and dramatic to actually stand out..
