by: Michelle Graves
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Romance
Release date: October 22, 2014
Izzy is lost to the void, doing everything within her power to forget the past two years of her life, when a voice calls out to her from the fog. Aberto begs for her to return while Kennan’s voice implores her to remember. Everything within her is telling her to stay in the void, but then Aberto tells her the one thing powerful enough to pull her from oblivion, Molly is dying.
What awaits Izzy on the mortal plane is more terrifying than she could’ve imagined. The darkness is on the rise and no one seems to see it, or they don’t want to admit to the truth. With the darkness more powerful than ever, Izzy must find a way to push the past behind her and protect her loved ones, even if it means losing herself forever.
Will Izzy fall to the darkness or will she finally discover who she was always destined to be? Find out what happens when the Seer finally Awakens.
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.
We begin right where we left off. Izzy has sacrificed herself for the sake of the prophecy, but sadly, that wasn’t enough. The world is still facing its imminent end. The darkness is coming and only Izzy has the ability to stop it. But her loss of Kennan makes her slink into the void, hiding from reality. It isn’t until she discovers that her sister from another mister, Molly, is in danger that she is brought back to reality. With a deep darkness looming inside her, Izzy must fight the demon that now possess her mind in order to keep her friends from falling to the evil that is threatening to take over the world.
As always, all good things must come to an end, and the Chronicles of Izzy is no exception. My heart ached by the end of this book. Izzy’s need to protect those she loved the most, while grieving over the loss of her soul mate, was more than my romantic heart could bear. While I wasn’t happy with the loss of Kennan, and I expressed this to Ms. Graves, personally, I more than understood her reasoning behind the decision. I was curious how she would handle Izzy’s connection with Aberto, and I was not disappointed in the end. As always, Ms. Graves writing stimulates the senses while drawing the reading right into the action. While this series does not have a pat ending (the loss of Kennan set that in motion), it is a great way to end a wonderful series.
