Foresight – Spotlight & Review
Foresight by Sherry D. Ficklin
“All Grace Archer wants is to graduate from high school and get on with her life. But the Gods of Fate have other ideas. Attacked at graduation by a mysterious woman with gruesome henchmen, Grace is lucky to escape with her life.
Rescued by a Fae warrior named Chris and her Aunt Phoenix, Grace learns that her mother was the Greek Goddess Pandora. Now Grace must protect her mother’s urn from the crazed demi-goddess Lilith, who is determined to unleash its horrors on an unsuspecting Earth. As if her blood legacy is not bizarre enough, Grace begins to develop frightening powers that threaten to destroy her from the inside out. Can Grace find the strength to defeat Lilith? Can she learn to control her powers before she loses her mind?”
Foresight is book one in The Gods Of Fate trilogy. I really liked how it starts off at Grace’s graduation with her thoughts on what for her, is a mundane process to be endured. Then the s#%t hits the fan, so to speak, and its non-stop action from there. Grace is a fun, fresh character with a lot of resilience and determination. Faced with difficult odds and shocking information about her blood lines, she bravely goes up against the ultimate foe to fight for her life and those of the people she loves.
Really great story with an interesting mix of the Fae and Greek myth. I loved the characters and their “voices”, the pacing, the seamless mix of two paranormal elements, and the story itself. The only thing I would have preferred to be different is for the story to be fleshed out a bit more in regards to Grace having to deal with everything changing so fast. Maybe the author had a word limit with her publisher, or something to that effect, (I’m just guessing here), but at some points it felt a bit rushed. That’s just my personal preference though. It’s a great story and I am really looking forward to the next book in the trilogy, Second Sight, due out Sept 2011.
