"Noël's story is nicely paced and well-written . . .Noël's many fans will be eager to find out what happens next."
". . .intriguing, twisting story line, which is sure to draw Noël's numerous fans."
". . .Noël does a terrific job of slowly unspooling their secrets and motivations with writing that is both charismatic and spunky. In Fated, Daire learns the world isn't at all as she'd believed. In Echo, due out before the end of the year, readers are likely to be curious enough to want to find out what she plans to do about it."
"Readers will feel the pull of Daire's quest just as forcefully as Daire herself does, and will count the days until the release of Echo, the second installment, this fall."

"Noël has done it again! With fantastic characters and an amazing plot, this book will suck you in and leave you breathless. . . Noël is a master with words, and readers will realize anything is possible in her world. With passion and thrills around each corner, this book is a must read" 4.5 stars, Top Pick!
"...there are some very unique plot twists, and the balance among romance, plot conflict and family relationships is well managed without a vampire or werewolf in sight...The magical system is different and well developed, drawing on both Spanish and Native American mythologies to create the Seekers, their enemies, the Lower, Middle and Upperworlds and the souls they fight over. Fated is a fast read and enjoyable...While the plot arc is complete in this book, the hooks for the next are set in place, and there is plenty of interesting material to be explored in future volumes."
"All I can say is this book is amazing. There are so many interesting twists and on the edge of your seat moments. . .It's fun, exciting, sexual and in some places a little terrifying . . . it is so far the best thing I have read this year. If you're looking for a new series to get stuck into The Soul Seekers is out of this world. . ."
"I just finished Fated just a couple of minutes ago and I have to say, 'Alyson Noël has surpassed all of my exceptions with a new world filled with magick, trust, and love.' . . . I absolutely adored the characters, especially Daire and, of course, DACE! I completely and utterly fell in love with all of the characters and, yes, even the bad ones. This novel has everything and anything you would want. I found myself not reading the pages fast enough, and completely devouring this book much faster than I thought. It just mesmerizes me how Alyson can create a world filled with fast-pacing, heart-breaking plots along with awesome characters and such a magical world. "
"I loved this book. All the characters were beautifully developed including some of the minor characters. . . I for one had high expectations of this book because of Evermore and Fated defiantly met those standards." TOP CHOICE
"I found myself unable to put this book down, completely captivated by the narration and the beautifully crafted world. I definitely recommend Fated. It was a refreshing YA fantasy with new elements I've never before."

"The first Soul Seekers is a superb thriller starring a 'troubled' young lady who learns she holds the fate of the world in her hands. The key to this absorbing tale is the heroine who makes the Noël mythos seems genuine as she enters the underworld while wondering who she can trust. Filled with twists, this is a winning opening act."
"Fated has a rich mythology, full of spirit animals, spirit journeys, fate, soul-seeking, and of course, good and evil. "
—Thirteen Days Later
"This was a wonderful read. It was action packed and filled with adventure. Fans of the 'House of Night' series will love this book. I can't wait to read more about Daire." Top Pick!
"Fans of Noël will love that this is more than a trilogy and the books are planned for every six months instead of the usual year-long wait between books." 4 Stars!
"A rush of romance will sweep you away in this hauntingly mystical read. I'm already as addicted to Daire and Dace as I was to Ever and Damen. Next book please!"
"Another captivating series from Alyson Noël. Fated did an excellent job setting up everything for the next books in the series. ...I'm really looking forward to seeing where this series goes!"
—The Story Siren
"Magic, an incredible journey to the underworld, romance and a beautiful blend of Native American make for a fabulous new read from established author Alyson Noël. The mystical world Alyson created in Fated is fabulous! It's a world that's both intriguing, and incredibly engaging. It's magical, alluring, and a little dark. Fated has an intoxicating mix of magic, lore, paranormal elements, romance and suspense. I think fans of Alyson Noël's writing will really enjoy what she offers them in her new series. This was a book I enjoyed, and one I'd recommend picking up. I'm looking forward to reading more from this series."4.5 Stars!
"Noël uses her New Mexico setting to weave in Native American mythology such as spirit animals and skinwalking. An intriguing story."
"Daire and her boyfriend Dace are back to restore the balance of good and evil after saving her grandmother and her soul. Dace is deliciously yummy, and if I say so myself, so is his evil brother Cade. It's a bit more fast paced than Fated was, and it's setting up the series to have longevity. If only it wasn't so long again until the next installment!" 4.5 Stars—Top Pick!

"Alyson is a fabulous storyteller. Teens and adults alike have flocked to her Immortals and Riley Bloom series ...Daire and Dace are a hot couple, and Daire is a realistic heroine."
—Jessie Potts, HEAUSAToday
"Mix surrealism, a prophecy, and a love that knows no bounds for one amazing read. I couldn't put this book down!"
—YABC Book Reviews
"The fictional town of Enchantment, New Mexico sets the stage for this engrossing tale of good and evil, magic, love, and sorcery. Daire is a worthy heroine, and makes her way between the otherworlds fearlessly. The suspense of the story primarily lies with the split soul of brothers Dace and Cade, and the reader will eagerly anticipate the way this situation resolves itself. Will good overcome evil? What sacrifices will need to be made? The author draws the reader into this conflict with ease, and deftly weaves modern-day life—cell phones and teenage angst—with ancient customs and folklore. This is a wonderful recommendation for readers of fantasy."
"If you love romance, mysticism and adventure then this is definitely the book for you. A brilliant read, the ending was incredible and I can't believe I've now got to wait until July 2013 for the next in the series Mystic."
—A Dream of Books
"Echo picks up straight where Fated left off, and although I finished Fated earlier this year, I had no problems jumping back into Daire's world and picking up the story like it was yesterday I had last visited...From the moment I began reading I could not stop. The plot is even more gripping, the characters are believable and well developed, and the further I got into Echo the more I had to keep reading to find out what happens. One thing I did not like was the ending, and this is purely because I have to wait what feels like forever to find out what happens when I really need to find out now."
—Much Loved Books
"The second story of The Soul Seekers emphasizes the prophesized love between Daire and Dace and reveals the power of their unwanted connection with the evil Cade. As in her Immortals series, Alyson Noël weaves a layered story of revealed secrets and connections among characters. The Soul Seekers series has a mystical overlay and Native American references which make this series unique and enjoyable among other published paranormal stories. Daire and Dace are powerful heroes whose affecting love makes this series an engrossing, passionate reading experience."
"Right I know I am a broken record when it comes to the lovely Alyson Noël. I wasn't sure I would love a series more than 'The Immortals' but 'The Soul Seekers' is a whole different ball game. It is one of the most intense reads I've read in a while... Echo starts exactly where Fated left off at the heart of the action, with the pace of the story getting faster and faster. The twists and turns in this novel are so unexpected...I truly love Daire and Dace as a couple they are perfect this novel takes them on the most bizarre emotional rollercoaster, I found myself, laughing, crying and screaming at this book... I just wanted more and more...this book is awesome and it will have you hooked on every page."
"I giggled with anticipation when I got this book in the mail ... I couldn't wait to turn to that first page and re-immerse myself into the world of Enchantment. Daire's circle of friends grows and I love to see forgiveness rather than gullibility in my hard-ass heroines. It's also refreshing to see Daire's Mum still being treated with respect by the author. It would have been way to easy to just throw her in the 'parental units must fail' basket and be done with it. The disturbing bits are extremely effective and the action sequences are well mapped out and easy to follow. For those of us who love a bit of romance, there's ample mush and kisses to keep us happy, but not so much that it's the main focus of the plot line...It is with good reason that the third book, Mystic, is on my most anticipated books of 2013 list."
"Noel doesn't disappoint with the third book in her Soul Seekers series.
The plot moves at a brisk pace and our heroine is at her strongest and
most determine—A winner!" 4 Stars
"The plot development is positively divine in Mystic, and I am more

"Fans will revel in this truly terrific ending to the Soul Seekers series." 4 Stars
"I am definitely marking this series as an absolutely favorite one. . . Everything that unfolds in Horizon is what the entire series has been building up to. It will suck you in and not let you go until you see that last word...Alyson Noël delivers yet again a series that I can get lost in way after the reading is over... I can't recommend it enough...I just can't believe it's over!" 5 Stars
"Plenty of action and heartbreak ...I actually really really like the ending...I think it was absolutely perfect and fitting...It's a well done and solid final installment in my opinion and if you are fan of the series I think you will definitely be happy with it."

"I am a huge fan of Alyson Noël and when I saw the chance to read Horizon I jumped on it. This is the 4th book in the series, and Alyson did not disappoint me one bit. Fun, intriguing, twists and turns, love, and pain. Alyson Noël has a way of transforming her characters, that they pulled me in without even realizing what was happening, and soon I was so caught up, that I hardly realized 2 hours had past. Books like this that can keep my intrigue and keep my mind reeling are reasons why I am a fan of this writer...Overall I feel that the author did a great job in building the story and the characters. I loved the plot line, and the uniqueness of it all. There is mystery and suspense that had me captivated for hours. I do recommend this series!" 4 Stars

"...if you have never read the previous books, than this one will get you caught up in what happened in the first three books...The main thing that I do like with this book and the other two books in this series is that the point of view switches between characters. I like learning what Dace and Lita and the others are thinking but I also like how Daire is finally starting to become prepared for whatever is about to happen." 4.5 Stars
—Panda Book Lover
"This final book to the Soul Seekers series will leave you gasping for breath. It is dark and edgy and has more lessons than anyone ever realized. Books can teach you so many things and this series teaches you to live with your heart and to always see what is true not what you want to see. This is the book you want to read if you want a story about the last fight for love." 5 Stars
