REVIEW: SEE HOW SHE FIGHTS is the second instalment in Michelle Graves’ paranormal/UF series-The Chronicles of Izzy. Izzy is a twenty five year old woman who learned in the previous storyline that she is a Seer and the man that she loves is an ancient Guardian who has been waiting his entire life for her birth. In See How She Fights Izzy will come face to face with her mortality and the possibility of the end of the world.
The storyline focuses on Izzy and her destination or rather her pre-destination. With a number of Seers missing and dead, it is up to Izzy to traverse the dream world and use her visions to uncover the who and what that is responsible. But Izzy is more than just a normal Seer-Izzy is presumed to be the ONE-the ONE who will save the Seers and Guardians from the Darkness and their ultimate doom. And with the help of someone not of this world, Izzy will embark on a journey that could quite possibly end her life.
See How She Fights has a distinctively different feel and voice from the first instalment in the series. Michelle Graves uses more snarky and sarcastic banter and come backs, then she used in the previous story. There is the potential for a love triangle building and along with the snark and attitude the overall feel is something similar to many YA storylines. The relationship between Izzy and Kennan is no longer the focus of the series and has been pushed to the background to allow for the build up of the ultimate confrontation. Although Izzy and Kennan are still very much in love, there is a third person vying for Izzy’s affections and in this the story takes on an entirely different feel.
Michelle Graves has once again created a world of Seers and Guardians; dream walkers and visions; soul walkers and runes. But this time around the protection from her Guardian may not be enough to save Izzy from the Darkness that is threatening to take it all away.
