REVIEW: The Returning by Rachelle Dekker

About the Book

Twenty years have passed since Carrington and Remko Brant's baby, Elise, was kidnapped and they were forced to leave her captive in the Authority City. Though they fled with the Seers far from Authority reach, they've never given up hope of rescuing their daughter from the man who betrayed them. Now Authority President, he's ushered the city into a new era of "peace"--one where the Scientist Roth Reynard's Genesis Serum has eradicated all memory of emotion or rebellion.But the mysterious Aaron and his Seers are once again on the move, threatening the illusion the Authority has worked so hard to build. As the Seers send seven chosen warriors to rescue Elise and bring restoration to the Authority City, the lines are drawn for a final battle between light and darkness. The key to ultimate victory may rest within the strangely powerful girl who has felt forgotten but was never abandoned--a truth she'll need to wage war against the powerful forces of evil.

My Review

The Returing by Rachelle Dekker is the third and final installment in her YA Fantasy/Dystopian Seer trilogy. First of all, there is a decent amount of time that has passed since the second book. So be aware of that. The Returning and the Seer trilogy was an intense and wild ride that I enjoyed immensely. The characters were fully fleshed out and jumped right off the page. Carrington and Remko felt so real to me. The world building is fantastic. However, my only quabble is that I wish Rachelle had been more bold in the spiritual aspect of the story. Other than that I found the story compelling and I couldn't put it down. I recommend this to all fans of Dystopian/Fantasy.
