Paranormal gets a Stephen King makeover: An oracle in a small-town Florida uses her troubling gift to stop a murderer--before he comes for her.
Aria Morse is an Oracle, blessed--or cursed--with the gift of prophecy. Ask her anything, and the truth spills out immediately. But Aria's answers sound like nonsense, even to herself . . . just as they did to those at Delphi 2,500 years ago. To cope, Aria has perfected the art of hiding in plain sight--until Jade Price, the closest person she has to a friend, disappears.
All of a sudden, everyone around her has questions. The "nonsense" Aria spouts becomes a matter of life and death. Aria may be the only one who can find out what happened to Jade. But the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she comes to being the next target of someone else who hides in plain sight. Someone with a very dark plan.
