Searching for Darkness, by Leah Ward, is a story of discovery. Literally.Edwin is special: He's part of a legacy but he's totally and utterly oblivious to it. That is, until he's attacked by things no-one else can see and has to hid behind shelter that literally wasn't there before. He is told, by his caregiver that he has a gift, making him a Seer. He's told the truth on where and why his parents died and an explanation to the gift he now has.
His parents were on a mission: to locate the Darkness, a book of unspeakable evil. In the wrong hands, the world could be destroyed- the universe even! So as most silly boys will, Edwin decides to run away from his adoptive home to go out and find the book too. He has no skills in sword play and since he just obtained hisSeer power, he's pretty much on a quest with nothing.
At first, I was irritated with Edwin. His actions were rather impetuous- with him sneaking away the following morning after learning why his parents vanished. To take up the mantle and run off in search of Darkness alone was insane! I also thought his actions a bit accelerated, but it didn't ruin the story- more so, it made the story. He started the journey ignorant and full of blind hope and ended with a bit of maturity that allowed me to grow to enjoy him. Speaking of characters, Lena was the cute, hilarious sidekick that made the tale. She turned out to be my favorite! I have to admit, I loved the world Ward created and look forward to reading more from her.📚
