runsBOOK 1: See How She Runs   3 STARS

There was definitely an interesting premise to the book… Seers and Guardians teamed up to help stop disasters that are to come… and the evil Corporation who’d rather use such knowledge to make money… I also really liked Izzy… after all she is a Southern girl who hasn’t lost her twang even living most of her life in Chicago… and she has a funny sort of wit about her that keeps her pushing through the tough times instead of bemoaning her lot in life… yet my problem with the book was for a large part of it there was no balance… Izzy is funny, Kennan is a trickster, and Ian is a complete whackadoo… so it’s like the characters keeping getting more ridiculous to the point that it no longer seemed like a serious situation of 3 sorta magical people training to take on the evil that’s after them but instead 3 teenagers off on a camping trip… and the fact that 2 were 100’s of years old and the other is at least 25 it didn’t really jibe to well… though it did finally get really intense by the end… also one of my pet peeves is the overuse of words… and Graves used “snickered” so much that I don’t even ever want to see a snickers bar again… there were also such phrases that she repeated used to describe and over describe certain things as in how Izzy would say what was going to happen and then show that it happened… but for the most part I did enjoy the book and I would like to know what happens next…
