The Quest Begins (Seekers #01)by Erin Hunter
Synopses & Reviews
Three bears — one destiny.
From the author of the nationally bestselling Warriors books comes a brand-new animal fantasy series. Three young bears from different species — black, polar, and grizzly — are separated from their families when they are just young cubs. They find themselves brought together on a perilous journey. Fate is about to change all these bears' lives forever, setting their paws on a path toward a future they cannot yet imagine....
"Hunter (the Warriors series) kicks off a new series as three young bears, unknown to one another, each embark on a perilous journey. Two of the characters, Kallik, a polar bear, and Toklo, a grizzly, were born in the wild and lose their mothers to tragic events. To survive, they must draw on their underdeveloped instincts. Lusa, a black bear, has grown up in 'the Bear Bowl,' a protected environment at a zoo, but to fulfill a promise (to Toklo's rescued mother, as it turns out) she leaves it and ventures into wilderness. The bears find help from other, more seasoned bears and are comforted by their belief in mythical bear spirits as they navigate the harsh realities of life in the wild. By the end, only Toklo and Lusa have met, and the purpose of the quest has not been fully revealed. Although this book does not seem as tightly written as the Warriors titles, readers will appreciate the bears' struggle to survive, along with Hunter's environmental theme. The suspenseful conclusion will build in an eager audience for the next installment. Ages 10 — up. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"[F]ans of animal fantasies will adore the careful attention to detail, and will haunt the shelves for the next volume." Kirkus Reviews
