The Last Seeker
Fleur Camacho, author
My book is about Tristen, a sixteen-year-old teenager, who has all he could ever want until his mom develops leukemia. Instead of having the best time of his life in high school, Tristen is going to cancer treatments and watching his mother wither away. At school, Tristen is assigned to work with Ailey on a school project and this triggers the unlocking of an ancient prophecy that changes his life in unimaginable ways. During the day, Tristen feels an inexorable pull to Ailey. Just being around her draws him in completely, blindly and with disastrous consequences. At night, strange tapping awakens Tristen and he finds a stone faced man staring at him from the other side of his mirror. The man begins to haunt Tristen’s dreams and even threatens to kill his mother as she sleeps. Soon, Tristen and his friends find themselves magically transported to Fifteenth Century France. While he’s there, Tristen discovers that that he is the last-born Seeker destined to stop dangerous men from changing the past. But he is having a hard time accepting that he is anything more than an awkward teenage boy. When they discover his location and try to kill him, Tristen must make a choice: embrace his destined purpose and risk loosing everything or be stuck in the past running for his life forever.
