The Seed (Review)
This review is for the book "The Seed" by Erik Guzman. This is labeled as a "true myth" which intrigued me, and the reviews I read for this book also made me excited to read it. People are labeling this book as a novel with elements of C.S. Lewis, the Brothers Grimm, J.R.R. Tolkien, and other great authors.
In this book, Tatus, Madeline and Roark build a labyrinth against The Shadow that haunts them. This Shadow has killed others and keeps coming against the humans. The plot in this book is so thick and twisty, that I really didn't know who to trust. The book has incredible visuals weaved into the storyline, but I was also a bit confused at times with some of the characters. By the end of the book I was really able to see how every character and action was weaving together to create the story. At one point the story became really familiar and I really started to see where Guzman was going with the story. That section in particular was sad, and yet really beautiful.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
