“These are for the exchange students.” The young woman turned her face toward Daphne, and removed her sunglasses.
Her eyes were completely white.

This story introduces you to Daphne Gianakos, new student at the University of Florida. Her strange dreams, weird fellow student Cassandra and a mysterious stranger hamper her getting accustomed to her new environment. I cannot tell you more about the story as it would spoil the fun of reading it yourself.
With Seeking the Sun, Jason P. Crawford presents us with an intriguing fantasy story, weaving myth and present charmingly. This story is well elaborated, has a pleasant flow, focuses on the story, disclosing more and more information about its protagonists. Jason P. Crawford describes his characters’ looks in not too much detail, their personalities are more important – you can imagine them pretty well. I was a close observer, following the protagonists and the events. I could easily envision the characters and locations. I had a good time reading Seeking the Sun. It is a fast and entertaining read.
