The Gearheart: Artifice Ep 11 & 12

The Crest of the Seekers
The Gearheart

By:  Alex White

Format:  Podcast; 33 minutes

Genre:  Fantasy

Episode:  11 of 37

Jonathan explores his new home, and we learn of more activity from Wallaby, Buskerton & Crust.  What could their insidious plan be?

My Thoughts and Summary:
Keegan and the crew take Jonathan to the main Seeker office, at the Circeville Palace.  Jonathan is taken by the Palace, even though he doesn't want to really be restrained to that area for the remainder of his life.  Cog and Jonathan get a rundown of the Seeker history, which Cog starts to see holes in the ways.  Then we see Wallaby, Buskerton, and Crest again, coming across a man on their way...and turning him to their uses.

Oh this episode is very interesting.  It's neat to see the Seeker plan and of its the setup, but yet we see there could be potential troubles in the inner workings as well.  Which Cog is thinking on, and even Jonathan has thought on as well.

Wallaby, Buskerton & Crest are rather interesting.  This episode shines a new light (or dare I say shadow?) on them.  We see they are not exactly....human?  There is something here, and makes me very curious.   These three kill a man, just to bring his body to their usage, one of their own team.  Interesting!  Now I want to see more of this evil, dangerous trio.


Format:  Podcast; 16 minutes

Episode:  12 of 37

Jonathan finds out that he has an appointment with the Seeress, and Isabelle discovers an appointment of her own.

My Thoughts and Summary:
We walk into the Palace with Jonathan, Cog, and Keegan to learn the Seeress requests Jonathans presence, now.  We see the twelve crests present in the entrance, which is to resemble the twelve original knights.  Isabelle is saddened that Jonathan is willing eager to lock himself away, for the Seekers.  Isabelle receives a wanted, yet then UNwanted, surprise kiss.  And finds herself lying breathless with an option to help the Hangman.  Or will she die?

This was an interesting episode for me as the word knight has come up twice, in two different conversations.  I think there is a connection here.  And I wonder on who the Hangman once was.  And what he might have broken in Isabelle to leave her in the condition she's in.  I am worried she will be changed, in existence not in revenge.

Isabelle mentions about wanting Jonathan to find another group other than the Seekers who know about being a seer.  So, is there doubt in Isabelle's mind regarding the Seekers?  Since she doesn't want the one person she feels strongly for locked up for their use.  And then I wonder if there are other groups out there.  Ones that may show an interest later?

Oh I wonder what was done to Isabelle!  Will she live, and do as the Hangman has asked?

And on I go! lol.  Just keeps pulling me deeper.  So much to learn, and I want to see what happens.
