Review: Seeds of Discovery

Title: Seeds of Discovery
Series: Dusk Gate Chronicles
Author: Breeana Puttroff.
Publisher: Musefish Independent Press
Published: August 31, 2011

Quinn Robbins' life was everything she thought a teenager's should be. She has good friends, a family that she loves, good grades, and an after-school job she enjoys. And, she's just been asked out by Zander Cunningham, a popular football player and great guy. But one day when driving home after picking up her little sister from the baby-sitter's, she nearly hits a boy who, after running blindly into the street, mysteriously disappears. 
The mystery only deepens as she figures out who the boy is; William Rose, a reclusive, awkward boy from school who always has his nose in a pile of books. 
As she becomes more aware of his behavior it becomes more obvious how out of the ordinary William is and how hard he deliberately tries to blend into the background. This only intrigues her more and she finds herself working to find out more about him, and exactly where he keeps disappearing to. 

On a whim one night she follows him and suddenly finds herself in a new world. One where William is a prince, literally, and she is treated like a princess. She also discovers that she is stuck; the gate back to her own world isn't always open. 

Quinn finds herself smack in the middle of a modern-day fairy tale, on a course that will change her life forever.

   Seeds of Discovery started off slow if you ask me, but soon it turned into a world someone would just be lucky to see a glimpse of. Breeana wrote a book filled with fantasy , something I haven't read sine I was 9. I guess I am more of a contemporary person. This may change me to reading more of the YA Fantasy.
 To be honest with you, I really could read this book again to go back to Eirentheos. The land was really what I I loved, a medevil style kingdom with hardly any evil- send me there to get away from the little evils at my house. This book to my bridge  to the world other world as Breeana really did a good job describing the mythical land and you get a very vivid picture as they traveled.
   The book was very great and the plot well developed even though it broke my heart that the kids were sick in the book. So where this one left off I can't wait to get my hands on a Copy of Roots of Insight the second book in the series.
