      of the series is revealed.

      This novel is a little darker than the last and we start to see the true legacy of the ‘Beforetimers’ – the radioactive residue and destruction of the balance of nature left by a society that mirrors the current times.

        Unlike the previous book which primarily was about a girl’s struggle to find a place to be herself and fit in, ‘The Farseekers’ seems to be a cautionary tale to encourage awareness.

        This book is best suited to teen readers however all readers 14 and up will enjoy the journey – some more mature readers may get more out of this book than younger readers as when I reread this book at 20 years old I discovered more than my 15 year old self found it the story. I would recommend finding a solitary place to read this as some moments get emotional and you get invested in the characters’ losses and triumphs.
