Available April 2014
Oracles see the future but are never supposed to interfere. Charlotte learned that the hard way. If she hadn’t tried to change one of her childhood visions, her father would still be alive. Since the accident, Charlotte has suppressed her visions to avoid making the same mistake. But when she receives a premonition of a classmate’s murder, she can no longer ignore her powerful gift.
Then Charlotte meets someone who not only knows her secret but who also has a way for her to stop the killer. He offers to teach her how to manipulate her visions to change the future. But doing so will put Charlotte in the path of the murderer.…
This Blonde’s Review:
Charlotte lives her life isolated, she’s seen as a strange girl who suffers from migraines and doesn’t have many friends because of it. In reality she is an Oracle. She has visions of the future. She learned the hard way that changing the future can have consequences so does everything she can not to see them. The ones she sees she ignores. Until a classmate is murdered and someone starts asking why she let it happen.
This was interesting. I enjoyed Charlotte, she’s struggling to know what is right and who to listen to. She can listen to her aunt, who is also an oracle but tells her to ignore the visions, or she can listen to the person who knows about her gift and seems to want to stop it. Who can she trust? The one who has hid everything she should know about herself, or the stranger who knows more than he should.
Charlotte has choices to make. I loved seeing her struggle to know what was right to do. I also loved seeing her learn more about her abilities and what she’s capable of. I loved the way the author wove everything together, to be suspicious of everyone. Is there anyone she can trust? Watching her try to figure it out was interesting.
If you enjoy watching the main character try to find herself while trying to save the people around her then you’ll enjoy Charlotte’s story.
