Conclusion to the New York Times bestselling and award-winning series, Forget Tomorrow.

Seventeen-year-old Olivia Dresden is a precognitive. Since different versions of people’s futures flicker before her eyes, she doesn’t have to believe in human decency. She can see the way for everyone to be their best self-if only they would make the right decisions. No one is more conflicted than her mother, and Olivia can only watch as Chairwoman Dresden chooses the dark, destructive course every time. Yet Olivia remains fiercely loyal to the woman her mother could be.

But when the chairwoman captures Ryder Russell, the striking and strong-willed boy from the rebel Underground, Olivia sees a vision of her own imminent death…at Ryder’s hand. Despite her bleak fate, she rescues Ryder and flees with him, drawing her mother’s fury and sparking a romance as doomed as Olivia herself. As the full extent of Chairwoman Dresden’s gruesome plan is revealed, Olivia must find the courage to live in the present-and stop her mother before she destroys the world.
I'm excited to be able to share an excerpt with you today from Seize Today. I have loved this series since the beginning and how it unique it is that each book follows a different character.

The thing about the Forget Tomorrow series that makes it so great is not only the awesome writing (I love the writing) but that we get to see the plot from different perspectives per book. We started with Callie, then her sister Jenna and now the own chairwoman’s daughter Olivia. Seize Today really pulls everything together.

I found Olivia’s story to be the most intriguing because the way your perspective of her changes throughout the other books as well. So the Olivia we meet in Forget Tomorrow is not the same girl we see in Seize Today. Each story I’m always surprised how much I bond with the character. I was a loyal Callie girl but I think Olivia is my favorite character. She has so much in her that nobody sees and it makes me sad. She is also very very strong to have put up with the things she has and you just can’t help but root for her. Her decisions are not purposely cruel and are sometimes the only option she sees. She wants to save everyone because she sits on this line between the world and her mother.

I can’t remember what I thought of Ryder in Remember Yesterday but I did like him now. Even with his trust issues, unlike his father Mickey he can see beyond himself. I think he starts to understand that in order to get trust you have to put a little of yourself out there too. I love love how he sees Olivia for who she is. Not just what she is expected to be. There blooming friendship/relationship is very cute and heartwarming.

Did I hate Mickey before? I can’t remember I think I might have but if I didn’t I really hate him in this book. He shouldn’t be in charge of anything, he doesn’t have a clear enough head. He is also too bias. Maybe I am too hard on him but he just gets to me.

So the plot ahh the plot. I don’t want to give anything away and now that all three books are out I think it’s a perfect series to binge. I just kept thinking, no how can this turn this way or that way or upside down. So many things so many things. Also so much action. You never feel a lull just a need to know how they are going to get out their situations.

I loved this series. I think it’s a great lighter Sci-fi for someone who might be hesitant with the genre. I also loved all of the relationships the characters develop. Not just with their significant others but with each other. It was interesting to see it through the whole series. The perfect binge series.
