    One thought on “The Quest”

    1. As a child Arcadia was raised by her father until the day the empire came after him for rebelling against them. Arcadia's father was killed and her brother managed to escape but Arcadia was caught by the guards and taken to a place known as the Kamps where they try to break down the prisoners and steal their memories. However, after four years in the Kamps the Emperor rescued Arcadia and brought her into his close trust where she became known as the Emperor's Shadow. A sometimes brutal killing m [...]

    2. This review was from my husband and yes it is his first review! I am a big fan of Sci-Fi style books (primarily the Star Wars series) and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This is also the first (full) book that I've read electronically. I found it hard to put the book down, as it was a very exciting and good read. I would spend my lunch at work reading, and even clocked in late at times as I didn't want to put the book down! The story line was well developed, and very believable in a futuristic a [...]

    3. I've always been fond of the "syfy family drama" genre. But this one went beyond that. Does that sound gushy? Well, it's true!! 'The Quest' by Dani Hoots is the story of a girl named Arcadia, who is torn between family and loyalty to the Emperor. It was interesting to see how a innocent but brave girl came to be in a strong position. I was rooting for her from the beginning, especially since everyone wanted rid of her. When her brother shows up they both go in search of a lost planet named "Sans [...]

    4. The Quest by Dani Hoots was incredible! Most of the time when you get a science fiction/ fantasy book romance plays a key in it. This book was all science fiction with a hint of romance. The main character was a great heroine, she knew herself well enough to realize she had blood on her hands, and while not good, it was her job and she didn't justify herself. It was refreshing to read her "real" character insights.I really, really can't wait for the next in the series, and I will warn you, there [...]

    5. I love YA books, especially fantasy. I’ve never been a big fan of much sci-fi, especially aliens. However, I do like Star Wars, so I gave The Quest a chance. It was a bit hard to get started, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I love Arcadia. She’s a wonderful & complex character. When the story caught my attention, it held on, which is difficult. And the ending??? What a cliffhanger! Can’t wait to start the second book! Curious to see where the story goes.

    6. Arcadia is the Emperor's shadow. She goes out to eliminate the people who plot rebellion and cause unrest. It has been two hundred years since the Imperialists wan the war, but there are still those who continue the fight. She gets home from her latest mission just in time for the semi annual formal ball for the rulers of the planets which make up the Empire.Arcadia hates dressing up, but this time, that will be the least of her problems. Her long lost brother shows up and tries to kill the Empe [...]

    7. I actually reviewed this book on my booktube channel so you can watch the video here: youtube/watch?v=wMGwFI was given this book in exchange for an honest review by the author. This review is spoiler free. As a huge fan of everything scifi/space related, I was really excited to read this book. The premise sounded interesting (long lost siblings, a rebellion, and space travel is an instant "must read" in my opinion), and so I definitely wanted to give this one a try. GOOD THINGS: Really great wor [...]

    8. The story follows a brother and sister who were separated as children and now are on opposite sides in a bitter war. Now they must work together to find the mythical planet of Sanshli. Will Arcadia betray her brother Rik or will she help bring down the Empire she has served most of her life?The author does a good job of developing the characters and maintaining a storyline. The book has a good premise and a surprise ending that I definitely wasn't expecting! The only bad thing I can say about it [...]

    9. I don't mind a cliff hanger in a book that is part of a series. However when there is one I want something solved and a another problem as the cliff hanger. The Quest did not have that. It just ended with the entire cast of characters in place for some kind of solution and then a bright white light and wait for the next book. The book was mainly backstory, world building and some plot development.In spite of the length the character development left something to be desired. I did not warm to any [...]

    10. Holy Hangover!!! I CANNOT wait for the next book in the series. Wow! This book had me riveted to the pages so much I couldn't even set it down at work (don't tell the boss lol). I loved this book and will read it again just to make sure I didn't miss anything. There were hints along the way for some of the twists and turns but not all of them. Dani has to have a lot of talent to go into this much detail and keep the story flowing along with all the unexpected happenings. I would definitely give [...]

    11. this book had a very slow beginning some of the descriptions were a tad confusing but over all there was a good story line! I didn't think I would like this book, however after finishing, I really want to know what happens next

    12. I was given a copy of The Quest by the author, Dani Hoots, in exchange for an honest review. Eleven-years-ago, Arcadia lost everything when the empire killed her father and dragged her off to the Kamps to be tortured and used for experiments. While in a fight to the death, Arcadia managed to impress the visiting Emperor himself and won herself a place as his shadow- the Emperor’s secret assassin. But when her brother reappears after so many years, she no longer knows where her loyalty lies: to [...]
