Source: I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book was by far the best in this trilogy!!! It was freeeeeaking awesome! The journey throughout the whole book was quite unpredictable and I really, really enjoyed the ride though the ending was unexpected but it was definitely an explosive conclusion to this trilogy. You can read my review of book 1: Forget Tomorrow, here and book 2: Remember Yesterday, here.
*Spoilerish for those who haven’t read the previous books in this series yet.*
Olivia Dresden has mostly lived her life in isolation clinging to the “good image” of her mother of her visions but she has only met the cold-hearted one in reality. But when her mother brings in Ryder Russel, a boy fated in her destiny, she is forced to reconsider her decision about everything before everything goes up in smoke and they fade away. Literally.
One of the interesting fact about this book is the three books of this trilogy has 3 different narrators and we have Olivia, the villain a.k.a the Chairwoman’s daughter as the narrator of Seize Today and I loved her even more than Callie! We have had glimpses of Olivia in the first two books but in this book, we finally got to see the things her way and I immediately loved her and I just wanted to protect that smol baby bean!
The plot of this book was unpredictable and it kept me on the edge throughout the book, especially when the stakes were so high. A new virus is affecting everyone and slowly everyone will simply start to fade away but the Chairwoman’s company has the only solution but it comes at a much higher price and then there’s Olivia has never stepped out in the outside world and with Ryder, she is forced to step out of her comfort zone and I really liked how she handled everything. Olivia is someone who has precognition, that is, she can see the possible pathways one might take in the future but the results often surprised her, she was such a fascinating character. The chemistry between Olivia and Ryder was instant and I loved that connection between them, I seriously loved those two together. The romance was a little whirlwind but I was absolutely in for it!
We have the whole team in this book, Callie is there, even Jessa and together they had to face the Chairwoman. They formed a great team but despite everything, the only one who could make a difference was Olivia and oh she did… I still had a tiny hope for the Chairwoman just like Olivia but her vision was just too twisted. In her way, she was right but she couldn’t see how wrong she actually was. The thing she did that at the end shocked me to no ends, I was not prepared for that but at least it was something. You’ll know what I mean when you read the book. The plot twist was also awesome!! This book was jam-packed with action and there was never a dull moment.
Overall, Seize Today was a fantastic read. I couldn’t keep the book down and finished it in two sittings. Although the ending was a little bittersweet, but the plot was executed neatly and I absolutely loved the characters! The writing was beautiful and smooth and it was fast-paced throughout the book. I am definitely looking forward to reading more books by this author.
