Tristen wakes to find a man watching him from the mirror. A chill runs through Tristen’s body as the familiar robed priest stares at him longingly. The priest struggles to open his mouth; the stitches that lace his lips together slowly rip apart and jut raggedly from his mouth. His bloody lips stretch wide as he leans towards Tristen, trying to suck him into a deep black hole. When Tristen, a sixteen year old teenager, is assigned to work with Ailey on a school project, his life takes an unexpected turn that changes his life forever. Tristen suddenly feels an inexorable pull towards Ailey; just being around her draws him in completely, blindly and with disastrous consequences. At the same time, an evil priest invades Tristen’s dreams and threatens to kill his mom. Then, Tristen and his friends find themselves magically transported to Fifteenth Century France. Tristen discovers that he is the last-born Seeker - destined to save the past and the influential figures who shape it. When someone tries to kill him, Tristen must discover the truth to save his own life and the ones he loves. Why does he feel this magnetic pull towards Ailey? Who is this evil priest and why is he haunting Tristen? And lastly, will he be able to embrace his destined purpose and risk loosing everything, or will he get stuck in the past running for his life forever?

An enjoyable teen read
Good Points
Our hero Tristen is dealing with a lot as a teenager, struggling to talk to girls, his mother's illness, the murderous monk in his bedroom...Life couldn't get any weirder right? This was an entertaining YA book with a great main character who was well written as an awkward teen. I feel that this would appeal to male and female readers. Highly recommended.

The Last Seeker by Fleur Camacho is one of those books that will stay with you. You know how all your friends on facebook are asking you to list the 10 books that have stayed with you...well this will become one of them.
I was lucky enough to be a beta reader so my first read through TLS was a while ago, yet, I remember it like it was yesterday. The story evokes feelings from my adolescence. It brings me back to a time in high school where I was doing quite well but didn't fit in. There is so much going on in Tristen's life, it is a wonder he can get up in the morning. He is struggling with family issues, being drawn to a girl who is already involved with someone else and having dreams...weird dreams.
This is more than your average coming of age story. It is a deep story within a story. It is a journey through time to find out what Tristen is capable of. It is the foundation of an epic journey of self discovery and and a lovely peek at a part of history we don't often see.
If you like historical fiction, deep meaningful story lines and interesting multi-dimensional characters this is the book for you!
