Much like the Warrior Sagas in style. Interesting characters, and plenty of potential with the plot. ( )

As a part of a deal with my niece, I agreed to read the first book of the Seekers series and she agreed to read Number the Stars. I didn't like the cover of the book, and was not thrilled to read about three bear cubs of different species going on some sort of quest. The book turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The author researched bear behavior and integrates this into the story. The way the bears view humans and human inventions is also somewhat clever. The book addresses the effects that climate change and human actions have on bear populations. The character development is better than I'd expected. It is probably more like a 3.5 star book, but I am rounding up because it was a pleasant surprise. It was good enough that I put the second book of the series on hold at the library. ( )

All of creation is inexplicably connected! The protagonists are bear cubs, each from a different species, seeing the world through innocent eyes and believing that everything is possible!!

Seekers is a wonderful series for young readers. The story follows several young protagonists (bears) on an epic quest to save their way of life. The tale shows the earth from their point of view and points out all the harm people are causing to the environment without even realizing it. Because of this constant environmentalist theme throughout the story we see quite a few tragic turns in the tale but that just makes it all the more compelling to read on. I am confident that anyone who reads these books will come out of it with quite a different view on how important the environment is to other creatures and how we should respect it even more. ( )

A long, long time ago, long before bears walked the earth, a frozen sea shattered into pieces, scattering tiny bits of ice across the darkness of the sky.
