The Seer by Ariel MacArran
Discovery means death but Arissa risks everything to save Fleet officer Jolar's life. Repaying this telepath means saving her from execution and Jolar strikes a bargain that will spare her life. In return, Arissa must join him on a dangerous mission and use her telepathic abilities to help him uncover hidden forces that threaten the Tellaran Realm.
Jolar will do whatever it takes to clear his life debt to Arissa. The only thing he absolutely cannot let himself do is fall in love with her.
I love Science Fiction Romance and am always looking for new books and new authors. When Ariel MacArran offered a free copy of The Seer in return for an honest review I jumped at the chance and I am glad I did.
I love the start of The Seer. Arissa walkes into an alley and sees a man about to shoot Jolar. She thinks, “I could just let him die.” But she does not. She distracts the shooter, saves Jolar life and changes her own.
I loved Arissa. She has been hidden away her whole life but when her parents die she is on her own. She is very intelligent, stronger than she thinks and very much at sea out in a world she has only experienced from a distance. It was great to see her change, realize that she is strong and that she can take control of her life.
Jolar is a very conflicted hero. When Arissa saves his life he is honor bound to take care of her. What starts out as just a duty quickly changes but that same honor binds him to other duties that could tear them apart.
The two must travel together to find out who in threatening the peace of the Tellaran Realm. Not everyone is who they seem and not every action is what they expect. Both are on a journey of discovery and both have life changing experiences that may tear them apart or may bring them together.
The Seer is a good addition to anyone’s Science Fiction Romance library.
Here Be Dragons published The Seer by Ariel MacArran in 2014.
