Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Olivia Dresden is a precognitive. Since different versions of people’s futures flicker before her eyes, she doesn’t have to believe in human decency. She can see the way for everyone to be their best self-if only they would make the right decisions. No one is more conflicted than her mother, and Olivia can only watch as Chairwoman Dresden chooses the dark, destructive course every time. Yet Olivia remains fiercely loyal to the woman her mother could be.

But when the chairwoman captures Ryder Russell, the striking and strong-willed boy from the rebel Underground, Olivia sees a vision of her own imminent death…at Ryder’s hand. Despite her bleak fate, she rescues Ryder and flees with him, drawing her mother’s fury and sparking a romance as doomed as Olivia herself. As the full extent of Chairwoman Dresden’s gruesome plan is revealed, Olivia must find the courage to live in the present-and stop her mother before she destroys the world.


book review

I just can't believe Forget Tomorrow series has come to an end. Seize Today is the final book of the series. There are too many emotions involved when I read this book and I have to say, Pintip Dunn has written the best dystopian/sci-fi book ever.

Seize Today has my heart on race right for the first page. It just feels surreal. It's like I can see it right in front my eyes and I am part of the team. Running for my life. Running to make sure I got the chance to escape from the genocide that Olivia's mom has planned for the longest time.

Olivia is the true precognitive. She is can foresee how future going to be and what will happen to the people and herself and her family and friends. Olivia is fragile at heart because of her mother, well, she kind of not-really-care-much-about-her. So, Olivia doesn't feel the love from her mother. The love she always wanted to have but failed to earn from her own mother - Chairwoman Dresden. She will do anything to make sure her mom's plan not going to be work. Even though it hurts her doing that to her mom but the community is far important than anything.

In one of Olivia future memory, Ryder Russell is in it. Ryder, he is Mikey adopted son whose having a trust issue because of what had happened in his childhood memory. It is not easy for him to give his trust to somebody is unknown to him let alone, a chairwoman's daughter - Olivia. The daughter of the woman who is going to wrecked their world and put all people in the world in danger. Even though that is what it is, Ryder somehow found love in Olivia when they on the run.

This final book has included the characters from the first series, Callie and Logan & Jessa and Tanner who are also combining forces to prevent genocide and also virus infected the community.

Forget Tomorrow series is the best book I have read in 2017. A book full of adventure, time travel from future to the past, a love for a family is strong and the courageous that each of the characters has especially the three woman - Callie, Jessa and Olivia. It's a girl power!!!

I have to say it's hard for me to say goodbye to all the characters and the book itself. I only knew about the book last month and I have all three book in a month has left a mark on my heart that I couldn't forget the story ever. Pintip Dunn, you have written a very amazing, wonderful yet intense book series ever and I truly love and enjoy. Now, I need this 3 book in my hand but all I know, there is none in our bookstore possession. I guess I have to find other alternatives to own it.

Before I forgot, I recommended this entire series to everyone who is reading my review especially if you want to find some intense and/or you are into dystopian/sci-fi, time traveling book with strong family love - Forget Tomorrow series is for you. Trust me, you going to love it as much as I do.

"Are you sifting through my possible pathways?" he asks, his voice husky.

I freeze. But if I'm a block of ice, his fingers do their job, tracing my lips again and again until I melt. "How…how do you know?" 

"Your eyes," he says. "They dilate when you're reaching into the future. I'm starting to learn when you're not here."

I blink. Nobody's ever told me that before. 

"You…noticed?" I ask.

"I notice everything about you," he says easily. "So, tell me. What did you see in our possible futures?" His voice is low and liquid, and it reaches inside me and caresses parts I didn't know existed. "What did I do? More importantly, what did you like?"

Heat floods my face. "What, exactly, are we talking about?"

"I don't know." His eyes gleam wickedly. "What do you think we're talking about?"

"Future pathways," I snap. If I have to electro-whip my attention back on track, I'll do it, damn the Fates. "I see everything from me slapping you to…" I trail off, and my cheeks flame even hotter. Oh my. I can't possibly put into words the images flying through my head like a hailstorm.

"Now I'm really intrigued." He moves his hand to my hair, tugging slightly. I feel the tension all the way to my toes. "Are you really not going to tell me? Because, you know, then I'll have to guess."

"I'm not going to tell you," I whisper.

His lips curve in a mischievous grin that makes me want to tuck him in my pocket and keep him forever. And then, while I'm still reeling from his cuteness, he leans in.

I'm not ready. My mouth is partway open, and I'm in the middle of a breath. He kisses me anyway. I shut my mouth in a hurry. Lips, so soft. His back and shoulders, so hard. Holy Fates, that was his tongue. His tongue, slipping between my teeth. Sparks. So many sparks, igniting in the air around us.

"How's this?" he whispers against my mouth. "Did you see this in our future?"

I nod helplessly.

He moves closer, scooping me up and shifting me on the mattress so that he can lie next to me. Our foreheads touch; so do our knees. "And this? Was this in some of our pathways?"

I nod again, but that doesn't seem to satisfy him anymore. His eyes intent on mine, he catches my lower lip between his teeth. "Do you like it?"

Do I like it? What kind of question is that?

I've tasted every emotion in our world. I know the sorrow a mother feels when she clasps her deceased baby to her chest. I know the pride of a gold-star athlete when he stands on a podium and accepts North Amerie's highest honor. I know the rage that silences the heart of a murderer as he cuts short another's life.

I even know kisses—hot, frenzied, passionate, fumbling, sweet, aching, innocent kisses. I've seen them all in other people’s futures, thousands of kisses, millions of kisses, as varied as the pathways themselves.

And yet…and yet…I've felt nothing like kissing Ryder. Even the vision of this moment itself.

So, yeah, I like it. It scares me how much I like it.
