Jeanne's review of See How She Runs by Michelle Graves

See How She Runs by Michelle Graves

One delivery changed her whole life.

Izzy was a normal girl living in Chicago as a bike messenger before that fateful day. She delivered one package and set into action a chain of events she never could have expected.

Now she is running for her life from the Corporation, her best friend is not at all who he seemed, and to top it all off she keeps having visions.

Will she survive to navigate the waters as a Seer? Will her feelings for Kennan be her very downfall?

Find out in See How She Runs.

Author Bio: 
Michelle Graves is a self-proclaimed nomad, moving every two to three years with her husband the Army man, her beautiful daughter, and a fat tailless cat named Torri. When she is not writing away trying to purge her mind of yapping characters she can be found entertaining her daughter, attempting to craft (whilst trying not to injure herself with the glue gun), baking yummy treats, or reading. She admits to having a restless spirit and forces her family to go out on adventures whenever possible. They lovingly play along.

Jeanne's Review:
Izzy Boone has a normal life for the most part.  She spends her days working a bicycle messenger and her nights hanging at a bar with her roommate, Keenan O'Malley.  Her past is full of loss - her parents and her Grams, but Izzy maintains an optimism that is unscathed.  On the eve of her 25th birthday, Izzy's world is turned upside down.  She discovers she is a member of a rare race of Seers, who have unique abilities, and Keenan is her Guardian, deemed to protect her at all cost.  An intricate world evolves around Izzy and Keenan, as they train Izzy in her abilities, and hide her from the evil Corporation who wishes to use her power for greed.

This story is gripping.  Izzy's snarky personality is delightful, and loyal, devoted Keenan, hubba bubba! We learn so much through Izzy's dreams and nightmares, and I was really intrigued by Ms. Graves use of Druid/Celtic history.  There are so many twist an turns, that it's almost impossible to put this book down.  Secret worlds, family members warring against one another, interesting characters and a deep connection between the hero/heroine are a few things you will discover in this story.  If you're a fan of Twilight and The Mortal Instruments, you will love this book.

I rate this book at: 4 honey pots
