Inside Out is the fourth book in a fictional series called Seeker Five, written by Tayma Tameem. The journey to becoming a seeker was on, and it was not an easy one. The trials for those who would be seekers continued. The participants were already in the last and most dangerous phase of the journey. Helena, the commander, and Hillstone, the general, decided to create a detour from the usual ways of trials. Skylar Calleum and her friends were on a high cliff, not knowing who would be the next to fall. They had all wanted to have access to a comfortable life; however, they would soon discover something about the fate of their families and all that they had as long as they remained on the journey. Find out what became of them in this journey characterized by betrayal, sweat, tears, and happiness.

The book had a number of positive points; I loved that each chapter had a topic that gave an overview of the information in the chapter, and that made me keenly interested to read the rest of it. Also, the book made use of plot twists and flashbacks. I loved the fact that the book touched on some problems of present-day society, such as the corrupt nature of some government officials and the struggles that come along with working for society. Good anger management, caring for our mental health, overcoming childhood hurts, and having a good parent-child relationship were suggested as keys to escaping certain troubles. The different personality types of the participants of the trials showcased different human attitudes and the essence of developing strong emotional intelligence.

On the other hand, the book requires that the reader must have read the previous book in the series to fully understand the storyline and the author's plot. It can't be read as a standalone book. To understand certain concepts in the book, one needs to have encountered them in the books prior to this one. Besides, there were no summaries of the previous books in the series for those who happen to have access to just book four. I didn't like this point about this book.

In view of the aforestated, I will give Inside Out by Tayma Tameem a three out of four stars rating. I didn't give it a lower rating because the book had a captivating storyline, and it was exceptionally well edited as well. However, I could not grasp the connectors in the story entirely, hence the reduced rating. I feel the author could have done more to create an impeccable connection between this book and the other books in the series.

Inside Out by Tayma Tameem is hereby recommended to those who enjoy reading adventure, exploration, and action fiction. However, it is essential to read the preceding books in the series to enjoy this book fully.

It seems there are previous versions to be read to get the full story because this one has piqued my interest. Thanks for the review.
