The Last Seer
Cerece Rennie Murphy Science Fiction Heat Rating: 3
When the fall of one nemesis unleashes an even greater danger into the world, Lilli, Joel and the Lost Seers must stand against a new enemy with the means and the will to destroy all of mankind, starting with those they hold most dear. As the Seers mobilize to confront this new evil, the Guild tries desperately to uphold the crumbling world order on which it depends. When their attempts to manage the crisis fail, the members of the Guild are forced to place themselves at the mercy of an unlikely ally. Review: I have read the entire Order of the Seer series and I have to say Cerece Rennie Murphy wove a top notch story that flowed seamlessly from one book to the next. In the final installment we see the aftermath of the guilds downfall. New menacing creatures take form and threaten the lives of civilians across the planet. The guild finds themselves working with the renegade seers for the sanctity of human civilization. The importance of Lilli’s role in peace is amplified as she begins to transform into something more than a seer. Murphy’s writing is captivating as her words flow and weave, commanding the reader’s attention. Lilly, Joel, and the other characters gain momentum, becoming more than fictional. They have the ability to grip the reader’s heart and pull at the strings eliciting sadness, joy, and anger. The climax builds steadily building the suspense with each word and stewing the pot for the unforgettable climax. This is one of the best series I’ve had the pleasure to read. Reviewed by Lisa Klaes
