"Misc. Monday": The Chronicles of Izzy Box Set by Michelle Graves

*Book Synopsis*
I lived an ordinary life. Perhaps it was life of loss, maybe even a lonely life, but ordinary all the same. Never in a million years could I have predicted the events that would unfold after that fateful delivery. Some Seer I was.

But that doesn't matter any more, that life, the one I'd thought was my reality, was nothing more than a weakly constructed facade. The lines between reality and fiction have blurred, leaving me with nothing but the cold hard facts. The world is vastly different than I ever understood. Guardians and Seers are real, and I have the power within me to tip the balance in a war between good and evil that had been brewing since the beginning of time. The fight was coming to a head and the outcome hinged entirely upon me.


I have to make an impossible choice. Would I step into my role as a Seer and face the growing 
Darkness head on, or would I cower and let everyone I loved suffer and die? 

The Darkness will rise and the Prophecy remains, the Seer must Fall.

So Fall I will.


Friendships, love, and sacrifice will all play out transforming Izzy into the Seer of prophecy. Find out what happens in The Chronicles of Izzy.

My Thought: Epic Might Be Too Small A Description For This Series!

     Holy Smokes!! From the prequel to the final book this box set is amazing! This box set is Ebook swiping madness, book hangover worthy and I totally have no time to socialize cause I MUST finish this series! From the beginning I was hooked on the characters, but like a true nerd, I was hooked by the author's usage of vocabulary. You'd think for most authors vocabulary would be a no brainier, but I find most books lacking in colorful and stimulating vocab, which is not the case in these books. Michelle Graves knows how to write and it's awesome!
      The stories are all centered around the protagonist Izzy Boone, who is introduced as a bike messenger in Chicago. She heads to the local bar that's been calling to her, in hopes of gaining a social life. It's there Izzy meets Kennan O'Malley, or K.O. who becomes her insta best friend. It's only later that Izzy finds her life and the world she lives in is not at all what it seems including her new BFF. Turns out Izzy is a Seer, a special woman gifted with looking into dreams of the future to see what is to come and help those they can. Just trying to swallow that knowledge alone, Izzy then finds out she's not just any Seer but may be more including the One. Luckily for Izzy she has her Guardian Kennan and some friends who aid her in the fight against the darkness and help pull her through the darkest times. The only question is will Izzy survive what she must do to save all whom she loves?
      Overall, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Seriously loved this author after reading the first few pages and as my sister puts it, the author used some big vocab words instantly endearing me to her. The story beautiful flowed and grew from chapter to chapter. Izzy is a great example of a modern female heroine, her faults are there but few and not annoying. Oh and the men in the story, super happy to report they may be overbearing at times but they are so not all alpha male, which makes me love them. The fact that Izzy doesn't let them get away with crap and then calls them on it each time even calling them stupid heads makes me love the characters all the more. Michelle Graves crafted a dangerous and mystic tale with light hearted moments, love and devotion to make a wonderful story spanning over 4 books a few novellas. So if you are looking for a great female heroine, who doesn't have a manual to her destiny, but will do whatever it takes to make the world right with the help of her friends and loved ones, then this box set is perfect. Plus at the price right now, what's not to love?

    2. I do have a romantic comedy series. The first is a novella called The Ship has Sunk! I'll be releasing the first full-length novel in a boxed set with the novella and a short at the end of July! You know, if that is your sort of thing. Other than that, I have a steampunk/dystopian in the works coming out this fall! <3
