by Shari McGriff
To save her son from ultimate evil, she must turn to a God she no longer believes in…
Julie's crushing grief brought a swift end to her faith. Left to raise her fatherless son, the Seer can rely on no one but herself… which is exactly how the demons prefer it. When nefarious whispers foretell the impending death of her son, she’ll do whatever it takes to keep him safe.
As sinister forces flood her idyllic coastal community, Julie’s God-given gifts may be her only hope for salvation. But summoning her divine abilities will require the one thing she’s sworn off forever: praying to the God who betrayed her.
Will Julie find her faith in time to deliver the town from evil, or will her resentment doom her to darkness forever?
The Awakening of a Seer is a captivating supernatural thriller. If you like deeply spiritual fiction, heroines battling pure evil, and Southern Gothic settings, then you’ll love Shari McGriff’s enthralling story.

Great book! Shari McGriff whisks one away into the setting and has an obvious understanding of the gifts only a Seer would know. The walk of her characters are so like what real people walk through in their life long journey of learning His ways. The novel takes you through choice and consequences of choices, it pulls you in; you will not want to put the book down until you finish and then you will be waiting for the next one!

Awakening of a Seer is well-written and insightful. If you don’t believe in the spirit world, this will open your eyes. If you already do, this will cement everything you know is true and will remind us all how important it is to pray to God for His protection and His power!
I started this book as I was winding down from a twelve-hour workday and ended up reading into the night - I couldn't put it down! That said, amidst the edge-of-your-seat thrills, the author has woven in tremendous spiritual truths with the fictional elements. Take time to meditate on those along the way in this powerful story of identity, the nature of spiritual warfare and the weapons that we wield as those who are in Christ.
