This is the story of how monsters saved their corner of the world. Whether they deserve to be saved is another story.

For years, High Seer Aurienne has lived with a single haunting truth—her visions will not save her people from the prophesied apocalyptic war that’s always haunted her nightmares. That all changes the day blacksmith Theo saves her life. She foresees Theo’s destiny to gather the continent’s five warring nations to stand against the invading forces. Suffering the soul-rending consequences of spirit necromancy, Aurienne finds herself fighting to survive a deadly web of assassination attempts, mind-shattering visions, and ruinous betrayal.

Theo cannot refuse when Aurienne asks for his help to save their people. He travels the length of the continent facing timeworn superstitions coming to life as he asks neighboring nations to join their cause. Refusing to let down the woman he is falling in love with—even though the fates whisper she will never love him back—he assembles an army of rebels fighting to retain their humanity as the corrupted magic of the land transforms them into the monsters of legend.

Saving the world does not come without cost. Standing against the conquering emperor, backed by his bloodthirsty goddess and moon-cursed army, Aurienne and Theo must decide whether to unleash forces more monstrous than the enemy they’re fighting against.

The High Seer ♦ Alex Bree


The storytelling ability of Alex Bree is extraordinary. Her capacity to combine words is a kind of magic unto itself; it conjures up a rich, engaging universe that seems wholly real. Richly developed characters, minute details, and a suspenseful scenario await you throughout the entire story.

Despite living in a magical universe, the protagonist, the mysterious High Seer, is a figure you will immediately bond with. Her intricacy, depth, and the emotional trip she takes are all brilliantly portrayed. You can’t help but relate deeply with her challenges, aspirations, and goals as you follow her on her adventures.

The High Seer has an incredible world-building. You will be drawn into the novel and experience the wonder and peril with the characters thanks to Bree’s evocative descriptions of the mystical landscapes and complex magic system.

The book’s brilliant exploration of the concepts of fate, free will, and the need of self-discovery, however, is what really makes it stand out. As readers follow Aurienne, the High Seer, on her quest, Bree dives deeply into these fundamental issues and gives her readers an opportunity to consider their own lives.

A masterful story with the ideal balance of magic, philosophy, and suspense, The High Seer is well written. This book is a must-read regardless of your preference for epic fantasy or just well-written stories. It’s an incredible journey that will have you gripped from start to finish and thinking about its deep topics long after you’ve read the last page.



The High Seer sticks out as a real gem in a world full of excellent literature. I really recommend it and can’t wait to read more of Alex Bree’s captivating Darkling Souls series. It receives five stars from me. You’ll never regret starting this amazing adventure, so do yourself a favor and read it now!

I received an advance review copy for free through BookSirens, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
