As a reader, I usually get frustrated when one installment of a series ends with a cliffhanger then picks up in the next installment, not right where it left off but several years later, skipping over all that happened from the moment of crisis to the beginning of the next book. So, I felt skeptical when I learned that Rachelle Dekker’s final book of the Seer Trilogy would start twenty years after the second book ended. Dekker handled the transition perfectly, though, giving just enough detail about events that happened in between and just enough reminders about all that had happened in the earlier books to help readers move easily from one point in time to another without feeling like they’d missed something significant. Through this trilogy, she’s shown her skill through an epic story that points readers to the message all people need to hear.
The Returning is Elise’s story. Daughter of Carrington and Remko Brant, Elise was stolen away as a baby and raised on lies about how she came to live separated from almost all other people in the middle of Authority City. Aaron and the Seers are ready to act, though, to awaken a sedated population to Truth. Elise has no idea who these people are, but her role among them will be one of the most significant of all.
Tyndale House Publishers sent me a complimentary copy of this book. I found it fascinating and am happy to recommend it to you. Just don’t forget to read the first two books of the trilogy first.
