A hundred years in the future, Imara’s evolved senses as a truth seer give her an advantage over the obstacles ahead. But her gift is also a curse: years of baggage weigh heavily on her shoulders.

When Imara finally understands what the fanatic kidnappers are planning, she’s forced to make a choice that will change her life forever.
Praise for Truth Seer
M. Smith, ARC Reviewer
“I was engaged in Truth Seer from cover to cover. The story is set in a futuristic Egypt and follows the story of Imara who has a special ability that enhances the way she views the world. Imara and the reader learn together that although her ability is incredible, she has to be careful not to let it blind her. Imara is creative, assertive, and strong, still her journey of self-discovery is relatable and endearing. Moody creates powerful imagery that captivates the reader and left me begging for more. I can’t wait to read the sequels!”

“Sci-Fi with a touch of dystopian fantasy, this book is a must read. Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop.”
Noly, Book Blogger
“I liked how strong and self sufficient Imara was. She has a strong personality, and trusts her own instincts. Also, the twist in the end was a good one, and I totally did not see it coming!”

“Imara believes her power to see truth in others will be the key to rescue her kidnapped sister – until Imara is forced to see the truth in herself.
In Egypt 2121, Imara is a recent college graduate and a newly hired interrogator for the Kenyan police force. She is also a highly skilled truth seer. As a truth seer she walks through life surrounded by colors and patterns only visible to herself and other truth seers. These hues and configurations reveal what is truth and what is illusion. After years of training with the Academy of Hila, an elite training program for students with unique powers, Imara has become a very powerful truth seer and is on track to securing a successful career in the Kenyan police force. But days before she is scheduled to begin her new position her world is shattered when she watches a group of terrorists kidnap her sister. Frustrated with the local municipal’s rescue efforts, Imara forms her own rescue party and leads them into the catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa. Filled with traps and illusions Imara is put to the test as a truth seer because, in the catacombs, deciphering truth and deception is a matter of life and death.
Readers will be spellbound as they follow Imara through the unexpected twists and turns of the novel’s completely engrossing plot. Truth Seer is an exciting and provocative tale that weaves together difficult questions about political morality and the philosophy of truth with an engaging love story and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.”

“The moment I started reading Truth Seer I was sucked into the futuristic world of hilas. The details and story line was fantastic. Each chapter left me wanting to read more. It was hard to set down the book. I really enjoyed the setting of the book. It was very fitting given the time, the characters, and the plot.
As I read the book the characters started to become real to me. They had struggles, wants and desires just like I did. It was also fun to see the characters mature throughout the story. The relationship between the protagonist and the antagonist was so on point that it really threw me for a loop when I found out more about the Judge. It was so cleverly written.
One of my favorite characters would have to be Abe. He helped Imara face and overcome a troubled spot in her past. It was such a beautiful moment. Once Imara faced her past she was able to truly move on and start seeing the goodness in people. That moment and these two characters will resonate with a lot of people. It definitely resonated with me. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. It was a worthwhile read.”
Excerpt from Truth Seer
“What’s in the catacombs?” Imara asked.
The officer laughed and shook his head. “Skeletons,” he said while rolling his eyes. “They’re catacombs. What do you expect?”
Imara glared at his offhand remark. “You’re scared,” she said. “I can see it.” She did her best to bore holes into the side of his head with her eyes since he still refused to look at her.
The officer shifted, obviously uncomfortable with the accuracy of her statement. He pursed his lips. “No one is going into the catacombs. It’s full of illusions and traps. It’s too dangerous.”
Imara’s anger melted away, and desperation took over. She hoped her eyes communicated the begging in her voice. “Please,” she said. “My sister is one of the hostages.”
The officer looked up, surprised, and sorrow filled his eyes. He averted his gaze yet again. “I’m so sorry.”
Imara clamped her mouth shut, and the dread in her stomach tightened to a knot. “You think she’s going to die,” Imara said.
The officer ducked his head down deeper. With a quiet voice he said, “We don’t know anything yet. We think the Judge will contact us in a few days, and then maybe we can negotiate something.”
Imara shook her head and clenched one hand into a fist. “That’s not good enough. What if you can’t come to an agreement?”
The officer showed no chance of changing his mind. Fear and anger and desperation boiled in Imara’s heart. They grew and hardened until they came together and formed an idea. Imara’s eyebrows lowered into a determined glare. “If you won’t go into the catacombs, then I will.”
The officer’s eyes widened. “You can’t do that.”
“Is it illegal?” Imara asked.
“No,” the officer said. “It’s suicide.”
