Wednesday's Favorites: Seeking Sorrow by Zen Dipietro

Welcome to Maureen's Books Wednesday's Favorites. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorites is ‘Seeking Sorrow’ by Zen Dipietro, a book I read in April 2015.

The Book:
An earth-like world of high-tech humans faces the reality that their world is not as safe as they thought it was. Five people are thrown together to quietly get to the bottom of an unfathomable mana event that must stay quiet. If the population of Terath becomes aware of the truth, it will spark a civil war. That war would pit the majority of the population against the powerful minority with the ability to harness and manipulate mana. The resulting cataclysm would decimate the population and tear apart the foundation of society.
The five people chosen for this must reconsider everything they thought they knew about mana, even as they learn to trust one another’s abilities. They must embrace everything they never wanted in order to prevent the devastation of their world. One of them will be forever changed. Love will be denied, badassery will be unleashed, and Terath will never be the same.
Even success comes at a price.

Praise for 'Seeking Sorrow':

Yes, you should definitely read it! Be prepared for a slower start novel, as it’s not packed full of action off the bat. But for me, I didn’t care that much as I was enjoying getting to know the characters and world. Totally worth reading!

Seeking Sorrow was a pleasant surprise, I wasn't quite sure what to expect but it was such a good read.

The story was fun to read, the characters development was fascinating to experience and the changes they went through were exciting and welcomed. The book read well rarely lagging even when other would. The ending leaves me with hope of another to follow, but not with a cliff hanger that would leave you frustrated with.

Zen Dipietro was able to write an amazing and intriguing story. Her writing was easy to follow but also very descriptive. She really made Terath come to life for me. I loved this book and would definitely recommend it if you’re a fan of Sci-Fi and Fantasy books.
