REVIEW: SEE HOW SHE RUNS is the first storyline in Michelle Graves’s-The Chronicles of Izzy-Urban Fantasy/paranormal series. The series focuses on twenty-five year old Izzy-a Seer-who has recently discovered that she is special. With the members of the Corporation tracking all of her movements, it will take an impassioned Guardian named Kennan to pull Izzy from the edge of oblivion as she struggles with realistic dreams, nightmares and the evil that threatens to destroy them all. Izzy is one of the most powerful Seers and the Corporation have plans to use Izzy for their own gain.
Kennan is a Izzy’s Guardian. There is only one Seer for each Guardian and Izzy is Kennan’s. But Kennan’s feelings for Izzy go beyond Guardian and Seer, and he has known all of Izzy’s life that there would be no one else in his heart. But it may take some convincing to prove that his intentions are honorable towards Izzy especially when he has been hiding the truth about her parents, her powers and his real identity.
The relationship between Kennan and Izzy began at Izzy’s birth but circumstances required that Kennan keep his distance. But as Izzy approached her twenty fifth birthday, Kennan was pulled towards Izzy and his ultimate destination. What begins as a friendship, soon becomes Guardian and protector and eventually soul-mates and love. The building of their relationship spans most of the storyline and culminates in the final chapters of the novel.
We are introduced to Ian-a fellow Guardian- and someone with questionable fashion sense but someone who is willing to die to protect Izzy as well. And Ian may have found his Seer-the one who will ‘belong’ to him.
Much of the storyline premise is revealed through dream sequences, flashbacks, recalled memories and nightmares. As a Seer, Izzy is able to see the future but she is also able to see the past-and it is her dreams that the most revealing information will be told.
Michelle Graves pulls the reader into a fascinating world of Seers and Guardians; dream walkers and nightmares; betrayal and revenge. The love between a Guardian and his charge develops through their intimate physical and psychic connection, but may also be present before the Seer is born. And in this, Kennan has waited over one thousand years and waiting another twenty five years will bring the Seer to her Guardian but not necessarily a HEA-but a happy for now because something wicked this way comes. Evil does not give up control-even your dreams are no longer safe from attack.
