My Thoughts: SEERiously Great Series!

       This series is a great addition to the literary world filled with humorous characters, great dialogue, and impactful messages weaved into the plot. The author, Amy Reece, kept the characters age appropriate but mature, a balance which is hard to do when writing Y.A. characters who grow into N.A. age that tackle problems befitting their ages. Each book has a great plot structure to ensure character growth and helped readers stay interested through the entire series wanting nothing but that wonderful HEA. 
       Plagued with a realistic vision during class, Ally Moran is rescued by Jack Ruiz the quiet bad boy and recent transfer student, who offers to take Ally to the nurse. Ally knows her family comes from a line of gifted females coming from Ireland, but none have ever had such vivid and physically taxing visions. Ally decides that it’s her duty to help those her gift decides to show her in need of help. Jack now a fixture in her life helps keep her sane and safe as Ally helps those she can with her gift. Later it’s discovered that the reason Ally is so powerful is because she maybe the Oracle. Having a possible new destiny leads her to new problems, relationships and situations. Ally travels to new places like France and Ireland to learn who she really is, but most importantly to help everyone she can without a second thought to herself. 
       Overall, I loved this series and enjoyed reading the journey of Ally Moran growing from high schooler to adult. Every couple in the book grew in such a sweet way that had me cry happy tears in the end. Jack and Ally's relationship was just too beautiful, especially when they take in Jack’s little sister Megan. Ally by far is one of my favorite contemporary heroines, she is smart, witty, powerful and not afraid of her flaws or the unknown future. Amy Reece gave girls a female character to admire and learn from. It’s a bittersweet fact that the series is over, but I’m so happy to have found these books and author and can re-read them whenever I want too. So if you want to read a series about seers, prophecies, love, and family all surrounding one girl and her fate who insists on saving everyone she can, then try this series.

Ally Moran has always just known about things—things she shouldn’t really be able to know… 

 Suddenly when she starts having vivid visions about a former friend who is in desperate trouble, the adults in her life think she might hold the key to an ancient mystery. 

 Jack Ruiz has a troubled past, but is trying to make a fresh start at a new high school… 

 He just wants to keep his head down and graduate, hopefully before he turns 20. The last thing he needs is to get involved with a feisty redhead and her psychic visions. 

 While Jack valiantly attempts to keep Ally at arm’s length, she is equally determined to be a part of his life. Who will win this battle of wills? 

 More importantly… 

 Can this unlikely couple work together to find answers to Ally’s visions before someone gets killed?

Meet Ally Moran, a 17 year-old who also happens to be psychic. Oh, and she’s getting more psychic with every passing day, so much so that she’s been sent to Ireland to check in with the Seer Council to see what’s up with her freaky new powers. 

 Jack Ruiz is her 19 year-old boyfriend, a former troublemaker who’s back on track and trying desperately to graduate. His plans did not include falling in love with a psychic trouble-magnet. 

 Last month they worked together to save a friend in deep trouble and ended up solving a school-wide mystery. But now there’s a new guy at school, Remy Giles, and he seems just a little bit too interested in Ally for Jack’s liking. And why does Ally keep dreaming about a kidnapping? Last month seems like a cakewalk compared to this semester… 

 Ally's trying to solve a mystery, but Jack is just trying to keep her alive.

Ally Moran and Jack Ruiz are starting their first year in college and are looking for peace and quiet for the first time in their relationship… 

 However, it may be too much to hope for. 

 First, Ally’s long-lost father shows up, making her question everything she thought she knew about her past. 

 Meanwhile, RΓ©my Giles and the mysterious Mina have accompanied Ally home from France so they can try to figure out what the newest prophecy could possibly mean. 

 Is Ally the next Oracle? 

 And if all this weren’t enough, Ally fears she is being stalked, and she appears to have a secret admirer who is sending her creepy personal messages in the college newspaper. However, no one else has seen this “supposed” stalker, so she fears she may be going crazy. 

 As Jack and Remy fight to keep Ally safe against the looming danger, Ally begins to fear for the one thing she can’t bear to lose…her sanity.

Spending her junior year in college in France should be the adventure of a lifetime… 

 Too bad Ally Moran’s only doing it to keep her family and friends safe from a killer. When Mina goes missing, the illusion of safety disappears and RΓ©my must finally confront his feelings for her. 

 Jack has been patient for a year, but he can only be pushed so far before he takes matters into his own hands and flies to France to bring back the feisty red-haired psychic he loves. 

 Love may conquer all, but the identity of the true Oracle is still up in the air. 

 Until that’s settled, no one can have a happily-ever-after….
