All That We Seem or Seem by Tempest C. Avery

Description: Lily Bryg is a seventeen year old witch. She doesn't always know what that means, or how to control it, but she does know that to most, it paints a pretty little target over her forehead. If that's not bad enough, Ronan an evil king who believes she's his soul mate has been stalking her in her dreams. Should she fight Ronan and risk everything, or give up her freedom to possibly save her friends?

And what about Larkin, the attractive shape shifter who sparks a strong sense of deja vu within her? He claims they knew each other in her past life, but how could she trust something she can't remember? Dodging witches, demons, faeries, dragons, and much, much more, the Four are just beginning to realize that having power comes with a lot of responsibility. And sacrifice. But one question stands out among the rest, haunting Lily through out the nights and days. Should she fight Ronan and risk everything, or should she give up her freedom to the gorgeous, yet wicked, king in order to possibly save her friends?

Overall: This book was alright. I feel like the plot was good and the characters were mostly well developed. The beginning was a little confusing, but at the end it became clear. There were things that didn't really get explained, but I think they will be in the next book. It was alright. I didn't like the errors in the text though. Many times a the was supposed to be a they and things like that. Other than that, though, this book was good. It was a typical book where the main character is responsible for saving the world, or another world in this case, and falls in love along the way. I'm not saying this is bad in any way though, and the writing style was very good. I loved that it required a lot of imagination. This book takes you to a far away place and leaves you there to discover it along with The Four. The setting was very creative, too!

Characters: I liked The Four. The idea behind them was good. That they all had their own special powers and such. I wish they had gotten more of their memory back, though. It might have helped clear things up. I also liked Larkin. He was very sweet and protective of Lily, which I thought was really cute. Their relationship didn't really grow though. It was like one minute they had their first kiss, and then all of the sudden they are in love? Was it just me that thought this?

Quotes: “Larkin found himself next to her now, his arm wrapped around her shoulders as if to comfort, though why he had no idea, for she seemed as calm as ever. Somehow, deep down, he knew that it was all a charade, a mask that she fitted in place as a means of protection. It wasn't easy for her to trust.”

Recommend?: Yes I highly recommend if you like the whole werewolves fairies and magic type of book. This book had a lot of imagination, which I loved! I give it 4/5 stars.
