Charlotte is an Oracle, she gets visions of the future, but unlike ancient Oracles modern Oracles are told to fight their visions and by no means are they to do anything to change the future. Charlotte has not attempted to change the future since she was six and her actions lead to her father’s death and her mother being wheelchair bound. But now people are being murdered in her small town of Coldwater and no matter how hard she tries she can’t fight off the visions.Then a man, who goes by the name Smith, shows up, knowing far more than he should about Oracles and Charlotte. Smith urges Charlotte to explore her powers and to try and save the killer’s future victims. The more she tries the help though the closer she gets to the killer.
A supernatural murder mystery that leans more toward the murder mystery side of things. While Charlotte’s Oracle powers are what gets her involved with the killer keeps the reader turning the pages (at least in the case of this reader) is the mystery of who the killer is what their motivation could be. Several events may seem over done or trite, but the supernatural atmosphere hints that things may not always be what they seem. Sleep No More by Aprilynne Pike is a fast paced thriller.
