Description

`Inception' meets `The Body Finder' in this dark thriller from No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike - perfect for fans of Kelley Armstrong, Alyson Noel and Kimberly Derting.

Charlotte Westing has a gift. She is an Oracle and has the ability to tell the future. Not that it does her much good.

Instead of using their miraculous powers, Oracles are told to fight their visions - to refrain from interfering. And Charlotte knows too well the terrible price of breaking the rules.

But when a premonition of a classmate's death is too strong for her to ignore, Charlotte is forced to make an impossible decision: continue following the rules or risk everything - even her sanity - to stop the serial killer who is stalking her town.

Our customer reviews

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) 16-year-old Charlotte is an oracle â?? she has visions of the future, but after changing one of her visions and accidentally killing her father, she tries to ignore her visions as much as possible. When she gets a vision of a murder, a vision that she canâ??t push away, she does what her aunt has trained her to do â?? nothing, only to receive a text from an unknown number asking her why she didnâ??t stop the murder from happening. Charlotte begins to wonder if she really could have prevented the murder, or whether interfering would make thing worse; like it did with her dad. Can Charlotte really change the future? And more importantly â?? why will happen if she does? This was an interesting story about a girl who could see the future, and I was really desperate to find out who the killer was! I liked Charlotte and I admired the way she wanted to make things better, and to stop bad things from happening before they happened. I also liked the way she didnâ??t put herself in danger whilst trying to help other people. The storyline in this was pretty good, and I really wanted to find out who the killer was. I did think the second half of the book wasnâ??t quite as good as the first half, but I still liked it overall. The mystery element was done well, the paranormal element also fitted in nicely, and there was a bit of a twist to the tale at the end. There was a little bit of romance, but it wasnâ??t really a big part of the storyline. The ending was okay, and Iâ??m wondering if this is going to turn into a series now. It would certainly be interesting to see what Charlotte has learned after this little adventure! Overall; a good paranormal mystery story. 7 out of 10.show more
