I See You by Frantiska Oliver



July 29, 2014 With shape-shifting abilities, Haven sets out on a path of revenge against child predators, while she searches for the monster who ripped away her innocence, murdered her trust and abused her body. Hoping one day she will come eye to eye with the man who stole from her the only thing that cannot be given back or replaced. But, when she discovers Cassidy and her mysterious Uncle Bryce, Haven’s world of secrecy is exposed. Her solitude life is challenged and the protective walls she built around her scarred heart begin to crumble. Tossing her into uncharted territory and reminding her of forgotten dreams. Struggling with the haunting memories of her past, the inability to trust and the hideous reality of abuse, Haven is thrown into a battle she never expected to fight and feelings she didn’t want to face. But, one question remains. Can a damaged shifter learn to trust and love again? Or, will it destroy what little is left of her shattered heart and allow the shadows of her past the control they relentlessly seek?


☆I received this book in exchange for an honest review☆

I See You introduces an intriguing, paranormal twist on realistic monsters our society faces. Curiosity slithered into the crevasses of my mind, as I tried to discerne early - on if I could handle reading anything containing content of pedophiles.  

It contains so much more than emotional scars and explicit scenerios. The execution of the prose remolds a hushed topic into a story of heroism and fascination. I am hanging on to to the mysteries and melting at the comfort only a child's innocence can provide. I praise the author's talented ability in choosing words that bring stories to life. 

♡Twenty-seven percent into the book and I am hopelessly hooked on one mystery after another. It's not often a book can become so intense this quickly! 

♡Thirty-seven percent into the book and it is a new favorite. Romance has made an entrance. More paranormal delight, and I am utterly intoxicated. I never do a play-by-play of a book, but I sensed this book would be deserving after the first few chapters. 

♡Fifty-nine percent into the book and I am riddled with desire, with rage and pain, and with admiration at the author's ability to provoke these emotions.  Monsters are real and they do not reside in ghost stories or fairy tales. At this point,  my emotions resemble those of an adrenaline junkie. I know without a doubt, I will feel amped up long after the story is finished. 
Talent such as this fascinates me to no end. I've found the story my soul craves. 

The precision of the words chosen in each scenario are meticulous to the point of absolute perfection. I'm not sure I've ready many books containing a thoroughness of prestine objectivity. The execution of the prose is notably proficient. "I See You" is a well-versed narration entwining facts with a fictional story-line of phenomenal altitudes.  The words capturing the emotional elements of an abused person's lifestyle could not be captured more rigorously than the words confined to this particular narrative.  

Keep in mind, this is not an account of abuse. It is of the thriller/paranormal romance genre that weaves an epic storyline.There is romance, reluctance, mystery, shapeshifters, witches, and horror.

I fear ever writing a book, for the chance that it would be nowhere near as worthy as one such as this. I am impatiently waiting for the debut of the second installment. A huge thank you to the author is in order for a vigorous, new journey. This book is a reminder as to why I NEED read and write. 

***Excuse me while I read it again. ♡
