Seeker Summary

Seeker by William Nicholson

People said that the Nomana warriors had magic powers. They carried no weapons, and wore no armour. They had no need. They were the Noble Warriors of the true way, and none could stand against them, until Seeker. All his life, Seeker has yearned to join the Nomana, to fight alongside them, to learn their spiritual ways, and, to find glory. But, this was until the day he discovers that this 'noble' sect are perhaps not as noble as they seem. Seeker sets out to uncover the truth, whatever the cost.
