Katharine McEwan navigates easily between the accounts of four teenaged narrators, including Quinn and two friends who are training to be Seekers on an isolated estate in Scotland. McEwan adapts to shifts in locale as they travel through space and time to Hong Kong and back to Scotland and helps differentiate the various threads of the plot for the listener. This first book of a new series contains a lot of background and world-building description, which McEwan keeps moving smoothly. As it becomes more clear what a Seeker does and the action increases, McEwan matches the higher intensity of the characters and the conflicts they encounter.
