The book I read was The Seer and The Scribe by G.M. Dyrek. This book was the tale of Volmar and Hildegard. The book takes place in the Middle Ages in a monastery. Volmar, a young monk, meets Hildegard there when he sees her dancing with someone who is not there. Curious, Volmar approaches the girl to inquire what it is that she is doing. We soon learn that Hildegard has the ability to see deceased people and communicate with them. When a murder happens at the monastery, Volmar discovers a plan to steal the Spear of Destiny. The spear is rumored to haunt anyone who takes its power for their own.
I did not enjoy this book. The main reason is just that I didn't understand a lot of what was going on. It took me two months to read it and I went as fast as I could. Because the book took place so long ago, I felt like I wasn't really understanding what was going on. I probably should have become more familiar with the Middle Ages before reading this book. I was highly disappointed with this book and would not recommend it.
