Of course after enjoying most of the Anita Blake books (the first 10 are fantastic), I was delighted to find something else by Ms. Hamilton. It was obvious that the publishers printed this work just because it was a Hamilton work, albiet an early work, and they shouldn't have.
Writing was okay, but I kept thinking that with all the references to earlier actions by the character that there was another book prior to this - which there isn't.
This is a good idea that was written by a freshman writer. Unclear plot and poorly structured.
Borrow it from the library and save your money for other books by this author.

"Nightseer" is Laurell K. Hamilton's first published novel, and it is, for the most part, well written and highly entertaining. This book is action-packed and filled with interesting characters who live in an intriguing fantasy world.
"Nightseer" is a little slow at the beginning, and it takes a while to become familiar with the alternate reality Hamilton has created, but once the story gets going it moves at a lightning fast pace.
The story revolves around noble half-elf Keleios Nightseer, skilled prophet and master enchanter. Upon reaching adulthood, Keleois found herself gifted with the power of sorcery, and so she was forced to relinquish her master status and return to the magic school at Zeln's Keep to learn to control her new power.
Entering a state of prophecy, Keleios has a terrible vision - the Keep under attack and on fire and the students and masters taken prisoner or killed. Keleios barely has time to warn the residents before the attack is under way, the Keep betrayed by Keleios' roommate Fidelis, a student of Harque, the evil witch who killed her mother years ago. Keleios manages to assemble a small group of survivors, consisting of herself, Tobin, a young prince, Lothor, a dark healer who agrees to help Keleios only if she agrees to be his consort, Master Eroar, a shape-shifting dragon, and Poth, a cat with powers of sorcery. These five must fight against the demonic forces threatening to destroy them. Keleios, who once walked the pit of Hell in a quest of revenge for her mother, bears the mark of demonic corruption, which gives her a certain power over demons.
Keleios and the rest of her team are betrayed by a ruthless High Councilman, and delivered into the hands of Harque.

I think this is her first and only attempt at writing a fantasy book (?) I love reading fantasy books (like Robert Jordan, Anne Mcaffery, etc) and I thought this book was written fairly well..it doesn't have the descriptive and detailed world of Robert Jordan, but it is still a good read. I was disappointed when I found out there wasn't going to be a sequel or series for this book because I was very eager to see what other adventures Keleios would have. Does anyone know why? (also, there were other questions I had that could have been answered in a sequel! like her elven/calthuian background, didn't elaborate on that...what is the Guardian? what exactly happened to her when she got that pus-like thing on her hand?)
Anyways, if you like fantasy..this is an enjoyable book to read, nice LIGHT reading:) Also, if you haven't tried reading her Anita Blake vampire hunter novels I recommend you do! Pretty good books, though her latest book Narcissus in Chains was kinda disappointing...only because Anita seems to have not stuck with her previous statements (in previous books) concerning certain morals she used to have!

After reading all 8 of Laurell Hamilton's Anita Blake series and "A Kiss of Shadows" I honestly thought I knew what to expect from Hamilton as a writer. When her debut novel was recently re-released I naturally picked it up, expecting to find the 'prototype' of the Blake series. I was more than a little surprised to find that "Nightseer" was in another genre entirely and that Laurell Hamilton is capable of excellent traditional fantasy. One can see hints of Anita in Keleios Nightseer, but for the most part it is as if we had stepped into an entirely different world.
Noble half elf Keleios is endowed with three magical powers. Originally she was a master enchanter and a skilled prophet. Suddenly she demonstrated powers as a sorcerer, and has had to relinquish her master rank and return to the school at Zeln's Keep to learn to control her new power. When Keleios was a child her mother was destroyed by the black witch Harque. In Keleios' quest for revenge she has walked the pit of Hell, and bears the mark of demonic corruption. Although she is not comfortable with the taint, she is able to control both black and white disciplines. In addition, she is also expert with weapons, particularly those bespelled or enchanted.
Entering a state of prophecy in the dreaming rooms at Zeln's Keep, Keleios has a horrible vision, the Keep under attack and destroyed, many of the residents enslaved or killed. She barely has time so make her warnings before the attack is under way. The Keep betrayed by one of Harque's own students. Against demonic forces Keleios is only able to assemble a small group of survivors. Lothor the dark healer, whose price is betrothal, Tobin, companion mage and close friend, Master Eroar, a true dragon and Poth, the cat.
