AWESOME BOOK! It is hard to put down

This book and the rest of both the series are awesome! Toklo is by far the best of the bears. I wish their parents lived longer though.

I read this a while ago. It was confusing and fell short of my expectations as a fan of the Warriors books by the same author. Apparently other people liked it though.

It was a great book. However, I was sometimes confused by which bear was which. But you can usually work it out as you continue to read. It's a great book, and I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

I liked this, but prefer the Warriors series by the same authors. Looking forward to the rest of this series.

This is the story of three young bears, struggling to survive in the wild as they follow the Pathway Star, hoping that it will lead them to a safe home. Kallik is a young polar bear, who is separated from her mother and brother as the ice begins to melt. Toklo is a brown grizzly bear, who is abandoned by his mother, and must learn to survive alone. Lusa is a black bear cub, who escapes the zoo in which she lives in, leaving all she loves behind her. They face many dangers: older, hungry bears, starvation, and hunters, as they follow their only hope: a star, said to lead one to what they need the most, spoken about only in myths. Will the bears find a safe home? Or is it their destiny to stay alone and unloved? I liked how this book had one chapter for Lusa, then one for Toklo, and so on. I thought that most of it was very sad, but I enjoyed the description. This is only the first in I don’t know how many other books in the Seekers series. It is a very exciting book!
