The Seer: The Other Side Of Red Book 1 By A R Curtis is a very magical and interesting trip through a wonderful world of fantasy that intertwines all the mystical and mythological beings such as fairies, vampires, witches, wizards and demons that any reader would enjoy getting lost in. The plot is thick with magic and the unrelenting questions of a young witch named Emily as she tries to find herself in a world of endless secrets about her origins. I love the way Curtis relates the characters so that anyone can easily understand their place in the story and the reality they serve in The Seer. I recommend The Seer Book 1 because Curtis has taken the ideas hiding in legend, myth and fantasy and laced them together in a story line that continuously unfolds to something new from fairies to mermaids and talking trees, The Seer has it all. I will definitely be on the look out for the next books in the ‘The Other Side Of Red’ series, I can’t wait to see what new ideas Curtis will spin for readers in the future.
