Seeing Light Review

Author: Michelle Warren
Title: Seeing Light (Seraphina Parrish Trilogy)

Good Reads-
As the corruption of the Society intensifies and the questions surrounding her mother mount, Seraphina Parrish embarks on a journey to find Terease in the terrifying Wandering city of Nocturna. But the information she learns there only sends her team on a dangerous mission to fulfill an ancient prophecy. Delving deep into the disturbing secrets of their world, the revelations quickly unravel, revealing shocking truths about the Society and Sera’s life. In the end, power and courage clash in a mission for freedom that may shatter the Wandering world completely.

I’ve had my good and bad times with the Seraphina Parrish Trilogy, and to be honest I didn’t set my hopes too high for the last book. It was a lot what I expected it to be, and didn’t exactly capture my attention as much as the first. So if you feel rebellious today, click on read more even though we both know you’re not up to the third yet. And if you’ve made your way to getting up to reading Seeing Light then please humor my opinions.

So where do we start. Sera, Bishop, and Sam are back again in their last book and are here to go out with a bang. They’re on their own now that Turner is dead, Cece is gone too, so no more trouble there, but not everyone is ready to move on. Terease has been sent to Nocturna and if that’s where Sera must go to get her answers, well I think we all know by now Sera is definitely going. With or without her team’s approval.  So off she goes, gets here answers and well as we might’ve predicted, it’s time for some big action.

Sera is faced with the worst thing in the world, her entire life is a lie and she’s the only one who can set this all straight. Not just for her but for everyone, the Society is manipulating the powers of the Wanderers and someone needs to put a stop to it. With the help of Bishop, Sam, and an animate Turner, Sera struggles with setting things straight and staying sane. Oh and not to mention trying not to get arrested or exiled at the same time.

The only real complaint I have with Seeing Light is all the time travel started to leave me lost in time. There’s so much more time travel in this last book, and I just started going insane when Sera was the future Sera going back in time running into the past Sera who already knew she was going back in time because she saw future Sera as past Sera when past Sera went into the past.  There’s a lot of Sera’s so to say. Besides that moment of confusion Seeing Light was a sweet end. It’s not very predictable I’d say, it’s got the action, the planning, the sneaking, the breaking and entering. It’s got Gabe. Not just Gabe, but it’s got Gabe’s apartment too, and I think we all just want to live in his closet for sure.

So as Seeing Light (the title sorta makes sense once you read it) comes to a close so do our visits with the Wandering world. I like the way it ended, and odd enough I’m really glad that the issues in the first story like Sera’s mother and lack of attention from her father got answered in the end too. Nothing was left unnoticed and if you had any questions at any part of the trilogy, you’re getting your answers no worries.

Seeing Light scores a 3.5 for me. This has definitely been an adventure I was glad to go on.
