Summary from Goodreads: The curse of premonition follows Faye Lithyer, forcing her to witness death—over and over again. 

When Faye moves in with her grandmother in Astoria, Oregon, her visions grow stronger. Faye watches a new friend fall victim to a murder in the not-so-distant future and becomes obsessed with preventing it from happening. However, Faye's insecurity has her undecided whether she should tell her friend about their impending death or hunt down the murderer before it's too late. 

Faye will be faced with an epic choice that threatens to expose her abilities. Will she choose to save her friend from a monster or risk becoming one herself?


Review:  I loved the concept. Kids having abilities, passed down through generations, its right up my alley. There were way to many similarities to Twilight for me to really enjoy this book as much as I would have wanted too. I also didn't get the sense of Astoria that I would have hoped, since I'm from that area and know the lay of the land. I also felt that there was this big build up to the Seeker's of Evil, but they were kind of brushed to the side to make room for a different ending. I hope they come back with a larger roll in the sequel. With that being said, I gave this book four stars for originality and content. It held me captive through the whole story and gave me goosebumps at the end.


Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
