Quinn Robbins' life was everything she thought a teenager's should be. She has good friends, a family that she loves, good grades, and an after-school job she enjoys. And, she's just been asked out by Zander Cunningham, a popular football player and great guy. But one day when driving home after picking up her little sister from the baby-sitter's, she nearly hits a boy who, after running blindly into the street, mysteriously disappears. 

The mystery only deepens as she figures out who the boy is; William Rose, a reclusive, awkward boy from school who always has his nose in a pile of books. 

As she becomes more aware of his behavior it becomes more obvious how out of the ordinary William is and how hard he deliberately tries to blend into the background. This only intrigues her more and she finds herself working to find out more about him, and exactly where he keeps disappearing to.

On a whim one night she follows him and suddenly finds herself in a new world. One where William is a prince, literally, and she is treated like a princess. She also discovers that she is stuck; the gate back to her own world isn't always open.

Quinn finds herself smack in the middle of a modern-day fairy tale, on a course that will change her life forever.

Simply put...Wow! I have to honestly say that Seeds of Discovery was a supremely pleasant surprise. I don't think I would have ever read this book if not for this tour and I would have truly missed out. Many of you know that I review a great deal of independent writers. It is books like Seeds of Discovery that make me sad that I am cutting back on those for a while. This is truly a book to be devoured.

My first reaction to Quinn was that she needed to mind her own business and pay attention to the people already vying for her attention. However, as the story continues, it is obvious that her fate is intertwined with those in Eirentheos, especially Will and Thomas. She is smart, kind, and caring. I actually felt a little embarrassed for her at different times during the story but she was always brave and handled the unknown with the utmost grace. Her reactions weren't super-heroic but refreshingly teenagerish.

Quinn finds herself in another world...literally. This world is filled with the kindest people you will ever meet...well, with the exception of Tolliver who should probably be drowned. Quinn quickly becomes friends with William's entire family, much to his chagrin. Her and Thomas become inseparable...and I can see why. He is charming, funny, and outgoing. He is handsome.

Soon after Quinn arrives, her life becomes endangered. She is forced to travel the realm of this unknown world with William, Nathaniel, and Thomas. Children around Eirentheos have become deathly ill with a mysterious disease. William and Nathaniel are needed to tend to these children as they are healers. Little do they realize that Quinn will be invaluable in finding a cure for this strange disease - without even knowing it. She kind of has a intuition about these kind of things.

The only thing I can really say is I wish there had been more. The book was a fun and quick read and when I finished I only wanted more. More of Quinn, more of Zander, more of Thomas...oh how I love Thomas, more of William, more of everyone. Thank goodness Roots of Insight releases January 9, 2012.
