The Fire Seekers by Richard Farr
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I'm an Amazon Prime member so I picked up The Fire Seekers as a part of the Kindle First program. This story is published by Skyscape which is Amazon's imprint for young adults and teen fiction.
This tale features Daniel Calder, a globetrotting teenager, who's a master chef, diver, emergency helicopter pilot, climber. Actually there really isn't anything this kid can't do, at least according to him. His father is the head of linguistics at University of Washington and his mother is the billionaire inventor of DNA based encryption. Daniel and his sudo sister Morag try to crack a mystery involving the Seraphim, a potential higher power how may or may not be out to doom us.
I like the description for two stars, It was ok, which is spot on. Daniel, the protagonist, is too good and too cool, he doesn't seem foul-able at all. [author: Richard Farr['s writing was fine, I just had issue with the characters, their perfection, and the ending. I guess this is going to be a trilogy, but I'll pass.
