Chautona really packs a punch with the final installment in this series! From book one, I found the series to be intriguing, soul-searching, and mind-bending, and this final book really brought the conflict of our protagonist to a boiling point. I learned so much about being aware of my own internal struggles, but also to be aware of those who are reaching out for help no matter if we understand how they feel completely or not. I was reminded of the Lord’s redemption, love, and faithfulness through the most trying of circumstances. In regards to plot, my mind was totally bent with the characters trying to find the source of all this, and I really felt their raw emotion on almost every page. The characters were really very personal and real to me, and I really was intrigued by their journey. I believe any fiction reader could enjoy this entire series, and especially if you enjoy something out of the ordinary that is truly inspiring!
I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are my own.

What Does It All Mean, Anyway?“So why is this series called ‘Sight Unseen’ if it’s about people who lose their memories? Why the vision references?” I can’t pretend I wanted to answer her question. She isn’t the first to ask, and I doubt she’ll be the last. I tried to explain. Look, it’s a valid question. Originally, the first book was called From the Cinders, and if it had remained a stand-alone book, it still would be. But when I finished with another person waking up to no memories and a hint that something sinister might be behind it all, I had to change it to fit two books—no, three! Recall. Rewind. Refresh. I liked those titles. But that still didn’t give me the name of a series. I kept studying. Tried again. I read what would become None So Blind three times in a row, if I recall correctly. And as I read it, a theme emerged. Ella Weeks hadn’t been blind to her faults even before her memory loss. Even her husband hadn’t been, despite his obvious love for her. But those around her had been blind to her awareness of those faults—to her silent cries for help in overcoming them.
Will Not See emerged with a similar theme.Vikki had a past that she hid from and refused to acknowledge. And even as those around her drew closer to provide support, she still managed to block out all that she found frightening—even physically shutting down and shutting out life. So, when it came time to plan the final book in the series, the one that would now tie together everything that had happened, I knew I wanted something that also fit with the other titles. And one night it came to me. Ties That Blind. So often our ties to people blind us to their faults—to the destructive influences they have in our lives. And Simon Prescott will learn that lesson in a rather lonely, horrible way.
The Sight Unseen series reminds us of what Paul said in Corinthians.Now we see through dark glasses… we can’t really make it all out. But with the Lord, when we’re truly with Him in eternity, we’ll see things as clearly as we do when we are face to face. And that’s what faith is all about, right? It’s the “substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” When we “buy in” to the Lord Jesus, we’re taking it all in faith. We’re trusting in Him, “Sight Unseen,” just as the characters in this series do with every element of their lives. I hope their journeys bless you as they have me as I wrote them.
