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?
Uncaged Review: Faye is an outcast at her school, and after her father dies, her stepmother takes her to live with her grandmother. Plagued by the gift (or curse) of premonition, Faye feels like she’ll never fit in anywhere. Having visions of people that she’s never met dying will not really draw people to you. But when she gets to her new school, and begins to make friends – and then finds out that she’s not the only one with abilities. But the abilities that draws these kids together, could be what rips them apart too. Her latest vision is seeing her new friend Rachel, dying. For the first time she knows the person and they are still alive. But she needs to get to the bottom of it to save Rachel’s life, and she’ll need all the help she can get.
I’m not giving anything away, but this book is a home-run on all fronts. It started a tad slow, but when it picked up, it really picked up. I had a hard time putting this one down. The characters are likable, and the mystery and the twists that the book takes, surprises both the reader and the characters. I only predicted a couple things that happened in the book, and the pace was never let up. Great start to a series and I’m looking forward to the next one. Write Ms. Rees, write. Reviewed by Cyrene
