E-Book Horizon The final book in the Soul Seekers Series, Horizon by Alyson Noel starts out slower, almost like a respite from the previous action, but a tense waiting game is fraying nerves, testing the faith and friendship of Daire and her allies. Tormented by nightmares six months after Cade has disappeared and Daire’s grandmother has passed on, Daire fears she is missing something. Her dreams are changing. Does this mean the final battle is coming soon? Will Dace and Daire survive or will fate steal away their time together? The darkness in Dace is growing and he has seen what he is destined to become-the enemy, far greater than any threat Cade could possess. As those final moments in the battle of good against evil arrive, it isn’t Cade that Daire fears. Will her heart be the last sacrifice? The darkness is growing…allies will die.This final installment of the Soul Seekers Series is signature Alyson Noel, dark, edgy and foreboding. The growth in her characters is as phenomenal as their diversity. Again the surprising dark twists and brief moments of joy and love shared by some of the characters keep the story real. I could feel how they were taking what life had to offer making the most of whatever the present would give them. Hard to imagine this is the end to a series I’ve grown close to!Great finish, great emotional pull, great character-driven moments!I received an ARC edition as part of the Horizon/Soul Seekers Book tour and Giveaway stopping at Tome Tender November 8, 2013 in exchange for my honest review.Publication Date: November 19, 2013Publisher: St. Martin's GriffinISBN: 0312664893Genre: Paranormal Fantasy/YA/NA RomancePage Count: 335Available from: Amazon | Barnes & NobleFor more reviews check out Tome Tender's Book Blog or find us on Facebook..

Good Books Horizon *Genre* YA Paranormal*Rating* 3.0*My Thoughts*"Sometimes you must venture into the dark to bring forth the light."Horizon, the supposed final installment in The Soul Seekers series, picks up SIX months after the ending of Mystic and is a story that tests Noel's characters love, faith, and friendships in many different ways. For Seeker Daire Santos, it has been SIX months since her Grandmother, Paloma, was killed by Cade Richter and she still hasn't been able to move on with her life. The Richter's are continually on her mind, and revenge is what she desires the most even though they have been keeping a low profile and keeping a pretty big secret away from Daire's prying eyes. In the time since the Richter's were supposedly killed, Daire started intensive training and learning more about her heritage of being a Seeker so that the next time she faces Cade, Gabe, and Leandro, she won't screw up as the so called prophecy has foretold.For Daire and Dace, their relationship has moved from the back page, to the front page and it's interesting to see how far Noel pushes the sexual interludes between two SIXTEEN year olds. Dace is dealing with the fact that he carries part of Cade's darkness inside of him which makes him question is own actions in taking down the Richter's for good. Can he actually take down his own family, or will he become one of the Coyote's and thwart Daire's desire for revenge? Dace's story pretty much takes center stage because of his inner darkness and his own actions that you will have to judge on their own merits and not just take my word for what happens.There are other POV's like Xotichl who regained the use of her eyes, and is in a pretty amazing relationship with Auden. There is also Lita Winslow who has been fawning over Axel ever since he lost his Mystic status and attempted to become human. I would say that these couples screw like rabbits, but that wouldn't be fair to the rabbits.Now to the meat & potatoes of the review. There is absolutely no freaking way that can you end a series with a cliffhanger like the one Noel leaves for readers. It is like having waving a handful of cat treats in front of your cat, and then yelling PSYCHE! I'm calling for a penalty on the author for roughing the reader, sacking our hopes & dreams, and excessive overplay by not tying up all loose ends. The ending is absolutely horrible which is why my overall rating for this book dropped lower than what I intended it to be. When you claim that this will be the last story, and you send Daire and friends against the Richter's in a final battle royal, then leave it as it is. You don't get to say oh wait, but perhaps maybe I'll just leave a few kernels of terror for the readers to ponder while they sit there stunned and moaning and groaning about wanting to toss the book into a vat of hot gasoline and lighting it on fire knowing that we will never see these characters again. How utterly rude and wrong Ms Noel!In conclusion, I'm glad that I didn't pay money for this book! I am happy to see that Daire embraces her destiny and heritage and gets a peek at her future. I'm not happy that once again Daire once again rushed head first into a dangerous situation and got played like a violin. I'm glad that Xotichl once again seemed to be the only character with her head in the right place and made an improbable and unselfish decision after all was said and done. I'm happy to see that Daire's mom Jennita showed up to support her daughter and kickass in the process. Published November 19th 2013 by St. Martin's Griffin

  • Horizon is the fourth and final book in the Soul Seekers series by Alyson Noel I have totally enjoyed reading the YA paranormal novels, set in a small town called Enchantment, apropos as the heroine Daire studies magic from her grandmother in a southwestern setting She is in love with Dace, the good twin Not Cade, he s the bad twin Finally, in this novel, Daire s bloodline, the Santos , are fated by a prophecy to battle their bloodline, the Richter s, in a throw down to win control of three worl [...]


  • The last fight for love The last chance to save your love The last chance to save the world The last chance to seal yours and your love s fate together The last chance to stand up against evil and fulfil your responsibility even if it costs your life and most importantly your love Wow What an epic ending to the Soul Seer series I truly loved it The plot is fabulous and it is presented in an excellent manner I was shell shocked by the turn that the concept took and the path that the author chose [...]


  • I cannot even begin to think where I need to start this review, because my mind is everywhere right now My emotions are high and just everything in between I do like how the book doesn t start off right where Mystic ended, it s good to see where everyone is and how they are currently making out their lives, before having to finish their big fight It does start out kind of slow, but I like with where everything went because it needed to build up, and everything little thing that action or moment [...]


  • You have no idea how happy I am that I m done To get an idea, refer to my reviews of books 1 Fated, 2 Echo, and 3 Mystick My biggest issue now that my brain is almost functioning Noel is a teller, not a shower Classic novel writing mistake The whole book, Dace is all, My darkness is going to consume me, it s foretold, I m already having difficulty controlling the beast inside me And I m all, What are you talking about, you melodramatic fool This is also why I hated the romance between Dace and D [...]


  • Finally got to finishing this one THANKS DAISHO CON AND ALL OF YOUR WONDERFUL DISTRACTIONS Compared to the other books in this series, the pacing in this one felt a little too awkward It was like getting three speed bumps in a row right next to each other, hitting smooth road again, and then suddenly running over twenty squirrels.Bumpy, annoying, and upsetting.Overall though, Horizon was almost the perfect ending to the series that I surprisingly ended up loving this year If it hadn t been for t [...]

  • Somewhere along the way, I just lost interest in this series Seriously, I kind of just wanted the baddies to win already and put me out of my misery Daire was exceptionally annoying, and Dace was Dace Still don t like him I think four books was way too long for this series Maybe it wouldn t have been so bad, except that the beginning of this book was all about who has sex with whom, and a heroine who understandably is just kind of hiding from her loss and very pathetic not so understanding After [...]


  • Did anyone noticed, it resembled Beauty and the Beast.Alyson Noel did a wonderful job in ending this series, the prose is really simple, yet note worthy and also matured enough The way she started in Immortals series and reached this mark is really is wonderful.Coming to this book, it starts with love and ends with love, is there anything else to say I mean the book s main theme, hell, for everything there is, Love conquers all and it did



  • Once again Alyson Noel shows why she is one of the best in the YA paranormal romance genre While Horizon, certainly is a romance, it doesn t rely on the romance as THE driving factor in the plot Yeah, you have your many teen romances Daire Dace, Xotichl Auden, and the freshly started up romance between Lita her new not from Enchantment, New Mexico not from this world, but Upperworld, gold bleeding, purple eyed boyfriend Axel But, these romances are buried under something deeper Something not so [...]


  • WARNING REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS.My theory for the ending there s going to be another series, a next generation series, that pretty much resolves things permanently.That, or Gabe Junior somehow doesn t end up evil, probably because there s no other Richters around to show him how to be evil Or something like thatEither way, I refuse to believe that it s just going to be left that way, with everything not entirely resolved, and there be no explanation for what happens In fact, I think the twins, [...]


  • This book is such a good ending for the Soul Seekers series It s full of surprise, plot twist and many many .I cried a lot in this book, well I always cry reading every last book in every series so far Thinking of this beautiful story is already end, I don t know what I m going to do next.This book taught me a lot, uh oh I mean this series, taught me about the power of love Not just love like a boy and a girl, no, it s than that Love is the most powerful thing, because of love, it can bring pea [...]


  • Our heroine, Daire, is still grieving for her beloved Grandmother, Paloma But, she is using this time to train To become stronger Things are wonderful with Dace but she just can t let herself relax and enjoy what she has Dreaming of the future is a frivolous indulgence I cannot afford Paloma warned me from the start that Seekers are not known for their longevity and their romantic relationships always end tragically Shirking all thoughts of the past along with all wishes for the future, I settle [...]


  • After being thrown loop after loop in the past week reading books 2 thru 4 I am definitely marking this series as an absolutely favorite one Going into this read knowing it is the series conclusion makes it bitter sweet, stuck with a need to know but dreading that it is all coming to an end At least I think it is the end Daire has come a long way from a young girl lost, hoping from one side of the world to the other With Paloma Santos in the ground Daire is alone in her Seeker status, no traini [...]


  • Jeg var desv rre ikke helt s vild med denne bog som de forrige Jeg ved ikke helt pr cis hvad det var der gjorde bogen tung for mig, men der var noget der var anderledes end de andre, hele stemningen, men det er lidt sv rt at forklare Men lad mig starte med de gode ting, for bogen var stadig god Jeg kan stadig godt lide hele universet og magien og indianerne Det hele er virkelig sp ndende, og jeg elsker deres vejledere Cade kan jeg ogs god lide Jeg ved godt at han er den onde, men han er s gennem [...]


  • 4 5 hearts I was provided an eARC in exchange for an honest review I am a huge fan of Alyson Noel and when I saw the chance to read Horizon I jumped on it This is the 4th book in the series, and Alyson did not disappoint me one bit Fun, intriguing, twists and turns, love, and pain Alyson Noel has a way of transforming her characters, that they pulled me in without even realizing what was happening, and soon I was so caught up, that I hardly realized 2 hours had past Books like this that can keep [...]


  • Picked this book up a couple weeks early at Vegas Valley Book Festival I m not sure if it was school taking over my life or if the book felt a little slow to me in the beginning, but it took me a bit longer than usual to read this Once I remembered this was it, the end, I started to see it differently I jumped back in with renewed energy and am greatly happy that it happened This book came out above my expectations for a last book The characters got their ends, whether they got happy endings or [...]


  • While I thought the unexpected cliffhanger ending was great, I sincerely hope that there will never ever be a spin off series The general tie up of the story was nice, however I would have been happier if Cade had survived and tortured Daire, Dace and Jennika until they died a slow painful death and then the world ended I also think Alyson Noel should murder her editor rather than sack them On a brighter note, I am very very happy to never have to read these books again.


  • OH MY GOD This book was a true ride I loved it My favorite of the whole series Alyson N el is so good at ending a series I will miss living in the world with the amazing characters But I plan to visit again One of my favorite series of all time I can t wait for my next adventure I hope it s as good as this one was.






  • Alyson Noel is amazing I loved rereading this book again and now I m debating about whether or not Mystic or Horizon are my favorite books in the series Although I ve read it than once, I wish it didn t have to end Especially after the shocking news that was revealed at the end of the story, I keep asking myself, will there be another battle to fight Since evil cannot stay at bay permanently I really hope Alyson writes another series about Daire and Dace and all of their friends and family Just [...]


  • Daire and Dace are a great match I love both characters This 4th book I was so excited to read I wanted to give a higher rating but I felt like this fell a little flat With Daires past seekers that were supposed to be helping I was waiting for a Harry Potter style to the rescue from them Then ending in a cliffhanger not good All in all I did like this series but not the ending.


  • God afslutning p en fin serie, med en fin lille kr lle til slut.Igennem alle 4 b ger n r historien aldrig til det punkt, hvor den bliver dum eller for meget, den n r ud til kanten men ikke l ngere, hvilket g r dem d t bedre at l se.
