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.

About the Author:
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.
Today we are going to talk music. I am one of those authors that absolutely cannot write without it. Each book has its own distinct playlist, which in turn means my iTunes bill is ridiculous…. any tax people out there know if this is considered a business expense? It is crucial to the creative process! Really.
Since each book has its own playlist, I am just going to hit the highlights from each book so that you can see where I drew my inspiration. I will even toss in some songs for y’all! Woohoo!
See How She Runs
The very first book I ever wrote. This playlist evolved over time. It started out super mellow and then I moved on to some other random stuff. The highlights:
Florence + the Machine
See How She Fights
This book was far more aggressive than the first. Izzy had to be way tougher, so the music was quite a bit different for this book. Granted, there were also parts that had to be super mellow so that I could hone the emotions.
The Civil Wars
Katie Costello- “Stranger” I call this Aberto’s song
See How She Falls
Okay, this one was a hard story for me to write. It was incredibly heart breaking yet fulfilling. Obviously, the tone for this one is a lot more somber than the others.
