    Part 1 of book 1 has given me a chance to read the promising start of a dark trilogy, filled with deadly secrets that left me turning the page and wanting for the next.

    Set in Carnia, a fictional medieval kingdom, “The Shadow Seer” tells the story - or rather the beginning thereof - of prince Candale who is prophesied to be the long awaited Shadow Seer. The prince had been suffering from fits and seizures for years and now - after recovering from an illness that almost killed him - he is having vivid nightmares, seeing and hearing things and starting to have visions. Together with his friend Teveriel and his female body guard, Trellany, he sets off to visit [...]

    Read 52 challenge number 9 asked that read a book by a female author and so I selected this book, which has been in my to read for several months, and firstly I just wanna say how annoyed I am with myself for not reading it sooner. It's a testament to modern fantasy writing and to prose writing in general.Fran Jacobs has a tremendous talented for descriptive text, indeed the first collective of chapters are by far some of the best I have ever seen. All five senses are exercised by the character [...]

    The Shadow Seer was an extremely interesting read, but it was a little slow in its movement.Candale is a prince with a secret; he is having prophecies, hearing voices, and seeing people that aren’t there. The Shadow Seer starts with Candale being gravely ill and close to death. All we hear are snippets of conversation between his relatives, arguments between his father and grandfather about how to best help him.His grandfather sends for a woman named Mayrila, a conniving, gold-digging witch, w [...]

    “The Shadow Seer” is the first volume in what looks likely to be a six-book series by Swansea based fantasy writer Fran Jacobs. The book has had a long gestation, but was finally published by Writers Exchange in Summer 2011, and has been worth the wait.Candale, Prince of Carnia, is a sickly boy, plagued by fits. Far from being a hero, when the reader first meets him he is on his deathbed, and is only saved by the magical intervention of the witch, Mayrila. But she has revived him for her own [...]

    “The Shadow Seer: Book 1 of Ellenessia’s Curse: Part 1” is the first novel by fantasy author Fran Jacobs. The book is a terrific introduction to her elaborate fantasy world of Carnia and a long forgotten prophesy that now affects the unlikely hero, Prince Candale. At the beginning of the novel, Candale lies on his death bed and only the solitary and not well loved witch Mayrila can save him. Her presence in the castle stirs up all sorts for intrigues and plots that Candale must wade throug [...]

    Most first fantasy novels are fairly predictable. The protagonist is either a good guy or a rogue forced into playing the good guy. This novel is a pleasant surprise. Candale is a bit of a spoiled brat with unpredictable, and usually self-centered, moods that seem to work against him most of the time. This dubious hero is forced by prophesy into a role he is ill-equipped to serve. I found myself fascinated by his plight, his need for the support he constantly rejects, and his drive to find out w [...]

    I just finished the Shadow Seer, and I think it is a great book! It's a new story, a different main character (there aren't that many who can't fend for themselves at all), and it got me addicted ;)Being the author's first book it has some flaws in the way characters adress each other, particularly within Candale's family; otherwise it's a consistent, engaging plot, and you quickly get over the flaws ;)Anxiously waiting for the next one!
