Enjoyable young adult fantasy with pleasing characters

An enjoyable fast-flowing young adult novel with interesting characters, intriguing situations, and a fascinating fantasy world, Breeana Puttroff’s The Seeds of Discovery is a good opening novel to the author's intended trilogy. The story has a good mix of completeness and mystery by its end, leaving this reader both satisfied and ready for more.
The heroine is suitably ordinary—no super-powers, nor super-wisdom or strength. She makes very real mistakes in her actions and her relationships, making her a pleasing real-world anchor as the tale moves into a parallel universe. Several young men attract her attention, and she finds it plausibly hard to care about all of them at once.
Some of the mysteries are too easily solved with super-intelligent William and Nathaniel makes less than intelligent assumptions, but the story carries readers easily through these minor irritations. After all, nobody’s perfect. There’s a perfect villain of course who I’m sure will reappear. And there’s a nice enveloping tale of the real-world Quinn, her school, family and friends, and their small town with babysitting, movies and the real-world needs of real teens.
I enjoyed Quinn’s responses to her parallel life and found myself sufficiently intrigued to wonder how time runs there and here and whether there might be more “bridges” between our worlds. Seeds of Discovery isn’t perfect, but it’s good enough to make me want to read more.
 
Disclosure: I received a free ecopy of this novel from Lightning Book Promotions in exchange for my honest review.
