I love Morgan She is my soul mate But I must find my parentsNow. If you wrote a book which included characters who speak another language would you want to make sure the phrases you wrote were accurate How about if you were an editor or publisher Would you care about accurate translations It was kind of a nice idea to have this book in Hunter s POV although the Sweep series is getting progressively worse all tell and no show but the insistence on using french was excruciating Auto translate did BETTER actually than the author when I checked it so actually it was really bad I ll share some samples Vous tre aussi un sorcier she said Oh no ah I began Oui oui she said with uiet insitence Vous suivez moi Maintenant Pouruoi I asked awkwardly Nous besoin de vous she said shortly We need you Maintenant Now Oui oui Vous avez fatigu Comme a Like that Comme a et ne comme a she said unhelpfully My advice is1 If you re using French or any other language have your characters begin a simple exchange like Bonjour Bonjour and then continue in English using your writerly skills to convey the fact that now we re suspending our disbelief and talking in French it s done in movies all the time and I might add getting and accurate Stay tuned for a blog post on the funniest misuses of foreign language in film and TV2 Get a French speaking friend to look it over3 Pay a native French speaker to look it over4 DO NOT USE AN INTERNET TRANSLATORSpell check seems to work well the accents in the above excerpts are remarkably accurate but don t confuse spell check with grammar check or auto translators it s a path to disaster5 Next time pick a language like say Faroese with well under 100000 native speakers Personally as I said I would care about the accuracy of whatever language I were using but if you are using a language you don t know in your book maybe don t use French next time because there s a lot potential for looking like an unprofessional idiot and even a parochial uneducated Amurrican when making mistakes in a language that well over 100 million speak natively not to mention the half billion or so who speak or read or learn it as a third or fourth language 6 None of the above points 1 5 are exclusive of the others

Seeker author Cate Tiernan

Myself getting closerBut am I strong enough for what I might fi. 4 read for me Didn t enjoy it uite as much as the others but it gave a good insight into Hunter s character as this novel in the series was told from his perspective Normally uite a reserved character it was interesting to see his thoughts and feelings particularly when seeing his father again for the first time after many years of thinking his parents were dead I also uite liked the dark character of Justine Now onto book number 11 to see what happens next

Cate Tiernan ☆ 3 review

I have information There are leads that seem promising I feel. ACTUAL RATING 25 StarsIt was interesting getting Hunter s point of view though it threw me at first This book was okay but it was probably my least favorite so far While important thing happened at times most of it felt unnecessary and kind of dragged
