Disruptor by Arwen Elys Dayton | The Perfect End

All good (or should I say epic?) things must come to an and. Unfortunately, that’s also the case for the incredible Seeker trilogy. When I got these books and picked them up to read, I had never expected to fall so headfirst in love with this epic trilogy. I read Disruptor in just one day because I just had to know how it was all going to end. I can tell you: it’s one of my favourite series endings ever. Here’s my spoiler free review of the final book!

“Should I take it personally that you prefer to plunge to your death rather than sit in a room with me?” he asked. It was a joke, though he didn’t look amused or relaxed.”

My Review

Disruptor isn’t as eventful or adventurous as the previous instalments of the trilogy, but that’s perfectly fine. This book was more about the history of the Seekers and it was done so incredibly well! I did find it a little bit confusing at times, but the originality of it all definitely made up for it.

I hereby declare Arwen Elys Dayton queen of writing interesting characters with loads of development. Holy. Moly. Funnily enough, I missed a bit of character development from Quin, but the other characters all had enough to cover for it. I’ve always been fascinated by John and Shinubo as they hadn’t developed for the better. They actually got worse. I absolutely loved how their stories ended in Disruptor. I’m so glad about how it’s wrapped up! The introduction of a new character in the final book felt risky to me, since it’s often annoying or useless, but that wasn’t the case at all! The characters are all so interesting and we got to see different sides to some people and it was absolutely epic.

Throughout most of the trilogy, our main characters are divided, but they do have a similar goal: to find out what being a Seeker really means. This really started in Traveler, when they went out and searched for the truth about Seekers, and their history. I loved this so much, and I’m glad we got to learn the full history of the Seekers. I’m somewhat of a history geek and although this is all just fiction, I absolutely loved it. It was clever, made sense and it was just so satisfying! Revelations like these can often disappoint in books. They’re not fully thought through, or incomplete. But that definitely wasn’t the case with Disruptor.

I honestly don’t have much else to say about Disruptor and the Seeker trilogy in general that would add to my reviews of Seeker and Traveler. I loved the characters, the plot, the setting… It was all written so well, and Disruptor definitely wasn’t an exception. It’s the perfect end to the trilogy and I loved it so, so much! It’s such a satisfying end. I don’t have any unanswered questions and there’s not really an open end, the wonderful epilogue made sure of that.

My Rating

Disruptor came close, but wasn’t as good the previous instalments of the Seeker trilogy. It does still deserve a five-star rating, though. All of the Seeker books were written incredibly well, and it’s a very satisfying end to a grand adventure.

About Disruptor

For readers of Sarah J. Maas and of Marie Lu’s Legend trilogy comes Disruptor, the sequel to Traveler, the thrilling conclusion to the Seeker series.

“Readers of the first two volumes will find their long-awaited conclusion here, and Dayton will have found fans for life.” -Booklist

Quin has spent her life as her father’s pawn. She was trained to kill and manipulated to guarantee her family’s power. And now that she’s broken free of that life, she’s found herself trapped again, hostage to a plot that has been centuries in the making.
It’s taken generations for the pieces to come together, and finally all is in place. Her best friend Shinobu’s mind has been corrupted, the Young Dread has aligned with her enemy John, and the bloodthirsty Watchers are being awakened and gathered. Now there is nothing that can stop the force of time.
But Quin will no longer be a pawn. Quin is a Seeker. She stands for light in a shadowy world. She will face the vengeance of the past and its enemies and save herself and the ones she loves, or she will die trying.

    Maybe I’ll have to go back and reread Seeker… I wasn’t a huge fan of it the first time round, but after reading so many raving reviews of the entire series I may have just been in a bit of a slump when I read it! Great review 🙂

      Thank you! Seeker (and the rest of the trilogy) are definitely the kind of “hit or miss” books… My friend didn’t like Seeker at all and stopped reading after 50 pages, which makes perfect sense! You expect something, but you get a completely different thing, which can completely put you off! It also takes a while to get into it. I had to push myself a little, but when I finally got to the good part, it was so exciting! I really hope you’ll enjoy it when you decided to pick it up again. 😉
