Piercing the Fold: 
"I'm Jesca. I have intense nightmares nightly and hallucinations of dark auras closing in on me daily. Strangers' faces distort before my eyes and I hear voices in my head. All symptoms of insanity, 'illusions in reality', right? Wrong. This is my reality and it has been set askew." Jesca Gershon Sera discovers that she is part of a legacy and a fellowship of guardians destined to protect the human race from a galactic event that will invade and evolve our world.

My Review: I dove in to this book head first and was completely submerged into it's pages. Meeting Jesca and finding out about her was absolutely mind spinning. When she finds out about her legacy from Ezra I was lost in a whole other realm. I so enjoyed the science lesson that Jesca receives from Ezra as he is trying to explain to Jesca who she really is and why she is so special. I giggled slightly as Jesca learns that Ezra is her guardian and mentor. I also shed a tear or two when Jesca has to leave everything she knows including her best friend Elisha and her family. I became so involved in this book I t really felt like I was leaving a piece of myself somehow. The plot of the story just gets more interesting when Jesca and Ezra enter the "facility" for training. Immediately Jesca is thrown into a whole new world and life will never be the same for her from this point on. As she trains to become a guardian herself. I have to stop telling you about the story or I will end up giving away definite spoilers. I will say that if you want to get wrapped up in in a new realm of reality then go grab a copy of Piercing the Fold you won't regret it! Thank you Venessa Kimball for your amazing writing! I can't wait to get lost in the next book!

Surfacing the Rim: Book 2 : 
The impending galactic event that will invade and evolve our world is upon us and our salvation lies in the hands of Jesca and her fellowship of Dobrian guardians. The sadistic Sondian fellowship's inhumane corruption of our world is spreading like wildfire, redrawing lines between allies and enemies. Jesca's fortitude is put to the test when she must make crucial decisions in battle and in love. She must choose between the predestined link that she shares with one man and the unresolved attraction she holds for another. Will Jesca have enough courage to surface the rim of this reality?

My Review: Never skipped a beat Surfacing the Rim takes off literally where Piercing the fold leaves off. Which if you are reading these back to back like I did it is awesome. I am right back into this story again being sent into a a realm of doom it feels like at different times. As Jesca and the other guardians are tested almost to their limits Jesca is caught up in a battle not only of good verses evil but a battle of the heart. I do not envy Jesca at all at this point having to choose between the one she has a destined connection to (Nate)or Xander is not an easy decision and one I am glad I did not have to make. My heart was twisted for her. In the end her decision is made right or wrong it's the one she chooses. I can only hope for Jesca's case she chose the right way. I have to say between the whole good vs.evil thing and the love triangle then you throw in a science lesson and I am left with being schooled in matters of the heart and science 101! I would not trade one minute of time spent reading this book. I can't wait to find out what I am going to get schooled in next! Once again Venessa Kimball has written another amazing story showing me that she is one heck of a science fiction/Dystopian author!

Ascending the Veil: Book 3: 
A veil has been parted. A galactic intersection has been spurred by the hands of an enemy, the Sondian Fellowship. Now, a veil, a barrier, meant to divide our universe from all others has been parted. This celestial veil was meant to keep beings of those universes from invading ours; mythical, fantastical, demonic, and angelic beings. Jesca and the rest of the Dobrian fellowship quickly realize that these beings have been the very product of the "illusions in reality" they have been tracking, dodging, and protecting mankind from. One that Jesca must ascend. Ezra Kahn and Nate Sera have sacrificed themselves beyond the veil of our universe in an attempt to protect both Jesca and mankind. Their sacrifice was noble, but not enough to stop the global invasion and apocalyptical evolution in our world. The fate of those Jesca loves and mankind is dismal unless she and the Dobrian guardians can find a way to get Ezra and Nate back and seal the ethereal veil between our universe and those that lie beyond it. Among the illusions a legacy will be unmasked. To her surprise, Jesca's ascension beyond the veil unmasks an ancient legacy that is much older and runs much deeper than the Dobrian fellowship. An empyrean inheritance seeded among mankind long ago that courses through the veins of the Onoch family and Jesca.

My Review:  Another winner of a story in my opinion. I can't get my mind to wrap around this story any quicker and I am at this point wishing I had some powers of my own. As this next book in the Piercing the Fold series plays out twisting and turning me inside out and completely upside down and left breathless I can only hope that Jesca can do what needs to be done to save Ezra and Nate. I hang on every word of this story compelling Jesca to pull through. This book is gut wrenching and leaves me biting my nails as my nerves kick in I am patiently awaiting the answer to all my questions. I will leave you here as I can not spoil the story for you. I will however leave you with this little tid bit to nibble on Ezra is Jesca's father. Now go get your self this series and find out what I'm not telling you and become part of Venessa Kimball's realm of reality.

Transcending the Legacy: Book 4 (Finale) 
With Jesca’s return from beyond the veil comes the realization that she is part of an ancient and celestial legacy that is much greater than the Sondian and Dobrian rivalry could ever be and the understanding of what has become of our world in the year that she has been gone beyond the veil.
It becomes known that ancient bloodlines and a supernal legacy has linked Jesca, her family, the two men she is torn between, and the team of guardians. With no other guidance but Jesca’s visions of what this legacy holds for them, the guardians are depending on the divining glimpses she is receiving to put them on the path leading to salvation.
As for our world, the population that has survived the galactic intersection, the climatic shift, and the necessary implantations are being invaded, occupied, and destroyed by the very beings Jesca encountered beyond the veil. The beings intent? To possess our world and stop Jesca and the other guardians from fulfilling the legacy that could save the human race and eradicate them.
Once again, Author Venessa Kimball will take you on a spine-tingling and breath-taking roller coaster ride through a reality that has been set askew, a reality that has surfaced the rim of our known existence, a reality that has ascended unworldly obstacles, and now a reality that must be transcended by one for the survival of all. The question is, will the stakes be too high and the loss be too great for Jesca and the guardians?
Get ready for the final book in Jesca’s journey, Transcending the Legacy.

My Review: Talk about how to leave you guessing that is exactly what happened in Transcending the Legacy for me. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen BAM guess again. Out of the four books I think this one is the one that leaves me the most breathless and heart sick. I cheered on Jesca and hoped with all that was in me that she would pull this off that her sacrifice would be enough. As she sets out with the rest of the guardians to save our world from total inhalation. I bank my trust in Jesca being able to pull it off. Jesca is not only trying to stop the world we know from being taken over by things that are beyond our comprehension she also is left with affairs of the heart Nate and Xander not a choice to be taken lightly. Both men have grown in ways I never dreamed. As Jesca's relationship with each one grows so does the bond of friendship between both of these guys. As this story pulls to an end I am left with a peaceful sort of feeling that is almost to difficult to describe. I decide as the last page is read that I have embarked on a journey of time and space that was unlike any I have ever read. Venessa Kimball totally nailed this series! She has not only taken my mind and filled it with wonder and amazement but, also as shown me that maybe there is still some good worth fighting for in our own realm. I encourage anyone who is reading this to pick up this series and let it take you on it's roller coaster ride. You maybe amazed by what you learn.
