In The Love Seekers, Jesse Limon is a young rock star wannabe burdened by the dark soul of cult leader Marcus. All his life he has fantasized about leaving the cult and meeting his father, former member of the most famous band to ever hit the music scene, and will do just about anything to prove their connection to the world. But when a meeting happens and those claims are denied, Jesse becomes hell bent on revenge. Influenced by rage and his newfound gifts of psychic ability, he is at times an uncontrollable monster, both manipulating and intimidating those around him. Closest is Emma—the one who loves him most and yet knows just how dangerous love can be. His powers eventually snag manager and producer Phil Keel, and both Jesse and Emma are sent on a whirlwind tour--with dramatics on stage and off.
Jesse is a tough one to figure out. Is he just another bad boy, or a victim of the insane? Will he beat the overpowering force of Marcus's demonic influence, or abuse a power which was never his to begin with? He's so desperate to make Emma (and the entire world) love him that he'll do just about anything to prove himself, including threats to bring her back from death should she ever be the one to leave first. In this final book, Jesse remains that elusive dark figure who pulls on your heart and yet makes you want to scream, and poor Emma is the one who must navigate.
If you enjoy paranormal, time-travel, and the ups and downs of this crazy thing called life, I hope you will add The Love Seekers to your list of summer reads.
