Don’t Die Dragonfly Review

Don't Die, Dragonfly (The Seer, #1)*I read this for the Magical March Reading Challenge!

Title: Don’t Die Dragonfly

Author: Linda Joy Singleton

Brief Synopsis: Sabine Rose has psychic abilities. After a tragedy occurs, she is sent to live with her grandmother. Relieved to have a fresh start, Sabine joins the school newspaper staff and makes new friends. One day, she begins having visions about something bad happening to a girl with a dragonfly tattoo. With the help of her friends, Sabine sets out to save the girl before it’s too late. The novel is the first in “The Seer” series.

My Opinion: Typically, I’m not a huge fan of fantasy. I got this book on a whim a few years ago, and I’m just now getting into the series.

It was a fun, light read. However, the plot was a bit choppy in sections. When the book opened with Sabine in the school’s newspaper office, I was expecting the following few chapters to take place in the school. Much to my chagrin, the second chapter begins with her walking home. I’m a huge fan of plot development, so this book’s plot development left me wanting.

I personally felt like the girl with the dragonfly tattoo only became significant toward the end of the novel. I loved Sabine’s sidekicks, and I can’t wait to learn more about them as the series develops.

The end of this novel really serves to set up the next book in the series. While this wasn’t my favorite book, I will definitely finish the series because I am invested in the character’s lives and I want to know what happens next!
