Such a beautiful story. I would have never seen anyone write anything so emotionally scary with such tact and so eloquently. Many twists and turns in the plot and characters so detailed and defined. I've fallen in love with this story and would do anything to continue to follow Haven, the strongest of all for not only fighting her own battle inside of her, but helping others fight the same battle before it's too late... This book is definitely one of my ULTIMATE favorites now.

FINALLY! A book like this is the missing cog of the literary world. I See You turned me into what can only be called, "a fan girl." Abuse is a hard subject to take on in general conversation, but to make an inspirational fiction novel with so many layers of emotion with such strength, grit, and above all, wrap my heart and soul around the words and the mission while still being a book I proudly hand to my teenager to read... It is phenomenal. It is everything that needed to exist, and Frantiska ...more

Rating: 4.5 Stars

This book was not at all what I was expecting. Having read the synopsis, I expected more of a paranormal story here. It has some paranormal elements to it for sure, but it is more a story about human interests. I was blown away by this book. It is one of the best books I have read about sexual abuse and how it affects a person.

This was a story about a shifter who was abused as a child and went

A unique read that brings face a serious and dark issue that is sensitive to most but is told in a way that doesn't glorify the tragedy but brings forth the strength it takes to overcome.

This isn't your fluffy romance, nor is it a paranormal fated fairy tale. There is a dark twist to this book that may trigger some raw emotions from readers. I will say that if you are a reader who is easily upset when it comes to child abuse this may not be the book for you, BUT...and it's a big but...the style

Paranormal with an emotional twist...
I See You was a well written story with suspense and intrigue, and the delicate subject of child abuse... ( don't let this hold you back from reading)
Haven a vigilante shifter on a mission to rid the world of the scum that preys on children... No spoilers, I will say the author wrote in such a way that held the readers attention, not just with the characters, but a well thought out and detailed storyline...I didn't want to put it done. I wanted to see how it

I don't really read the paranormal/ shifter books but I was asked if I wanted to review it and I agreed because it sounded good. At first I didn't know what to think, I couldn't really get into it but I continued to read it hoping it would get better by the third chapter I didn't want to put it down. I can't wait to see what Haven does next.

I walked away more than a dozen times. I'm so glad I finished this book. A 3.5 star rating that quickly bloomed into 5 well deserved stars!

Frantiska Oliver, is quite simply one of the most talented writers I've read in decades. Without painting telling all the gory, gut twisting details she has the ability to evoke tangled emotions, heartbreak, despair, and the rise of gritty determination and hope with the click of her keyboard. My only complaint about this book is I believe it needs a PTSD war

☆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

I really loved this story. I love shape-shifters and paranormal books. This one had a bunch of different paranormal creatures in it. The story was great and had a great cause behind it. I will warn that some may be offend or not like the content. It deals with children being abused sexually. The main female character, Haven was sexual abused as a child and is out to save other children like her. Preferably before they are hurt but if she gets there after it has happened she makes sure that it st ...more

I was given an ARC for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.

This was a wonderful book! It combines a common worry among parents with shape shifters! Haven, once abused can shift into any form she wishes and sets out on a journey to stop sexual predators. To what lengths will she go? I can’t tell you. Will Cassidy and Bryce, a gryphon, be able to change her preferred lifestyle of solitude? Can she love again?

This book is great! Wonderful new story. I have never read anything like this before. Absolutely great storyline, tons of suspense, and even a little romance thrown in. I was definitely caught up in this book. As far as new to me authors go Frantiska will have a lifetime reader/stalker from here on out.
Haven has a shattered life and heart. But as a shifter (one of a kind spin also) she uses her powers to fix the many wrongs done to young innocents. Tortured, abused, neglected, and molested chil

I struggled with the start of this book, it was a dark subject that I found difficult to read and nearly stopped. Im so glad I didnt though as the story developed and got less of 'disturbed details'.

I think the book took a turn when Bryce turned up, he added some light and I really enjoyed his characther. Haven is a very strong woman and a shifter shes on a mission to rid the world of paedo's.

I received a copy of this book as a gift and for an honest review.....
When I started this book I was extremely skeptical because of the genre and darkness of the topic...
That being said I could not put it down and I went thorough so many emotions while reading it. Frantiska tells a story of a damaged soul set out to right the wrongs against those who aren't able to protect themselves. She thinks she is alone in this quest until the Mysterious uncle Bryce shows up and conjures feelings she though

This book was AMAZING!!! Haven has two secrets...she was molested as a child and she's a shifter, hell bent on revenge. She goes around and if she finds anyone abusing a child, she shifts into what the child feels safe with and then when the time comes attacks the monster with one of her own. When she finds little Cassidy, she knows this monster is worse...he has girls held captive plus he has killed one. She knows what she has to do, but when Cassidy's uncle shows up Haven isn't sure if hes goi ...more

A good book can show the reader the emotions felt during an unfamiliar experience. A GREAT book will drag the reader directly in to the experience until your heart is racing and your mind is begging for an answer...and page after page must be turned until the situation is resolved. "I See You" is just such a book. This author buckles you in to an emotional rollercoaster from the first page until the last word, and all you can do is hang onto your seat and enjoy the ride.

OMG! I See You is a fast paced, suspenseful thriller with a little romance. Haven is a shifter like none other. She's able to shift into anything she sees, even the person standing in front of her. When she breeches the home of six year old Cassidy to take down the monster her mother is dating, she quickly finds more than she than she imagined. Not only is Johnny abusing Cassidy. Determined to take the monster down once and for all. When Cassidy's uncle moves in she'll have to act fast.

I really enjoyed this book. I am not usually the type to go to a paranormal book, but I was asked if I would read and review. I wish there had been a little more to Bryce and Haven relationship, I know what he had said in the book, but it was real quick. I would recommend this book, and I am looking forward to Haven's further adventures.

Emotional read! Great book!

(Fair warning this book is NOT for the lighthearted)
If you was abused anyway this book isn't for you.

The Author did amazing job writing this book.
Leaves you heart broken, happy and laugh. Let's say plays with every emotion you have. I've read lot of books with some shape of abuse in it. And I have to say this Author went all out and made it feel so real like your feeling each character. I can't wait to continue following Haven on her quest to help those in need and t

This is a book about sexual abuse, but is written as a fantasy in an effort to give power to the victims, not the assailants.
