Gráinne’s search for survivors begins in earnest, but she and her companions don’t even make it to their first stop before their freedom is jeopardized. To make matters worse, they’ve landed in a place filled with corruption, subterfuge, and danger, but none of the survivors they’d hoped to find. Despite their best laid plans, the trio isn’t prepared for what they do find. Her journey will take her underground in more ways than one, and Gráinne will have to decide between the only security she has and someone else’s freedom.
Seeking is Part 2 of 4 in Incorrigible: Secrets Past & Present, Book One of an epic science fantasy set in the Shifting Worlds Universe.
***IMPORTANT. Please read: The Shifting Worlds Universe is the setting for a serial story. Please be aware that "serial" means some parts are just that: parts. They are meant to be read in sequence, and they do contain some cliffhangers. That's why the parts are being published in rapid succession. I don't want readers to have to wait overly long to find out what happens.
For those who don't enjoy serial publications, there is another option. Readers who would rather read each book as a complete volume will be able to buy each novel (all parts in one book) before the subsequent book's first part is published. That way, they'll have time to catch up before the story continues.
The second episode of Incorrigible is a lot more hopeful than the first. We continue to meet a ton of interesting characters and lines begin to form between the various groups we have met that give a hint at tieing things together.
Grainne has landed in a new land searching for settlers to re-populated the destroyed island nation of Incorrigible. She never expects to find the group that she manages to run into. More new creatures - some that are similar to classic fantasy and some that are products of a very creative imagination - become both friends and some possible enemies.
The hopeful thread continues throughout the entire story and it seems to end on a fairly high note compared to the first book, but still leaves you wondering what is going to happen next.
