I’m dreaming. I know I am, but somehow it doesn’t feel that way. “Iz, run as fast as you can!” I hear my mother yell in a panicked voice. “Iz, you have no idea what you are, please just run, hide before it is too late! You have to get away from him. I’m so sorry, baby. Please just run. You can’t let him take you."

See How She Fights
She thought it was over.
She thought her life was finally her own.
She was wrong.
Izzy is thrust back into the world of Seers and Guardians. With a summons from the Council she can't ignore, Izzy heads back into the fray. Now, it is up to her to figure out why Seers are being sacrificed, carved up, and left for ruin. If she doesn't find the person orchestrating the deaths, she may well be next.
If that wasn't enough, her powers have started to expand exponentially. Kennan is keeping secrets. Moreover, a strangely familiar Symbol-smith starts wreaking havoc on her precariously balanced world.
Will Izzy survive this latest crisis? Will she stop fighting destiny and accept her fate? Find out in See How She Fights.

See How She Falls

See How She Falls
Darkness is on the rise.
The prophecy has been called forth.
The Seer must fall.
Izzy knew she wasn't safe, the lingering runes told her that much. What they didn't tell her was how to lead the Council, stop the darkness, and keep everyone she loved safe.
With irreparable changes brought on by Aberto's intervention, a relative she never knew existed, and a whole slew of horrifying visions assaulting her, will she be strong enough? Or will the darkness prevail taking her and everyone she loves down with it?


I reached the edge of the cemetery and looked up to the thunderheads forming overhead. I knew that the battle raged on above me. I’d seen it more times than I could count. The end was here, my grand finale. I looked back to Kennan, who stood far off in the distance. “I love you," I whispered, hoping that the wind would carry my promise to him. My last chance to tell him how I truly felt. Time had run out.

Book Length: 151 pages

Publisher: Bolero Books, LLC

Fool’s Errand

An unwanted trip, a past that wouldn’t release him, and a future he never wanted.

Conall must travel to New Orleans at the behest of his meddling mother to face the demons he’s been running from.  What he finds there is old magic, vague promises, and a glimmer of hope he never could have imagined.

Seeing is Believing (Molly and Ian novelette)

Seeing is Believing

The life of a Seer isn't for the faint of heart. I should know. Mine has been one of upheaval for the past few years, what with the downfall of the lab, the recent exile from the Council, and a future that is suddenly becoming painfully clear.

With Izzy missing, and the darkness still looming, I know what must be done. I have to go to the Order, find a way to bring Izzy back, and get to the bottom of what is really happening with this darkness business.

I'm just not sure how to do that when Ian is haunted by his past, Revenants are out to make me one of their own, and the dreaming keeps trying to reject me.


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.

My Thoughts:

I read and reviewed See How She Runs September of last year. You can see my thoughts here.

I had the opportunity to read the next book, See How She Fights!

This one was more of everything! There was action, suspense, some more romance, danger and lots of laughs too!

I'm not really sure how to write this without giving any spoilers for those of you who haven't read it yet. Read the blurbs and know that it is so much more than that. :-)

If you are looking for something new and different from the typical monsters and scenarios, you will be very happy with this series!

I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. Each book seems to get better and better!

    1. There are still mysteries to be figured out. That is how she keeps us on the edge of our seat, mesmerized with the plot. But yes it was more detailed.
