Description-

  • The blockbuster film Inception meets Lisa McMann's Wake trilogy in this dark paranormal thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike. This supernatural young adult novel is perfect for fans of Kelley Armstrong, Alyson Noël, Richelle Mead, and Kimberly Derting.

    Charlotte Westing has a gift. She is an Oracle and has the ability to tell the future. But it doesn't do her much good. Instead of using their miraculous power, modern day Oracles are told to fight their visions––to refrain from interfering. And Charlotte knows the price of breaking the rules. She sees it every day in her wheelchair-bound mother and the absence of her father. 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.

About the Author-

  • Aprilynne Pike has been spinning stories since she was a child with a hyperactive imagination. She completed her BA in creative writing at the age of twenty at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. Aprilynne currently lives with her husband and children in Arizona.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    March 24, 2014
    Charlotte Westing has been raised not to do, not to talk, and not to discover—which makes for slow reader engagement with her situation. Oracles are no longer active in the world, but they continue to be born, quashing their gifts through rigid discipline and the oversight of fellow Oracles, the Sisters of Delphi. Charlotte has been mentored by her aunt, Sierra, historian of the society, who denies Charlotte access to her books but, of course, brings them within reach, as well. Charlotte’s obedience to the rules breaks down when she is assailed by visions of her classmates in gruesome death poses. Unable to bear the guilt of inaction, she’s willing to break every rule if doing so might prevent another death. That she has interfered before, with fatal consequences, has bafflingly little impact on Charlotte’s thought process, and is emblematic of the murky rationales that underlie much of the book. Pike dedicates the novel “to the survivors of Newtown,” which may strike some readers as questionable, given the plot’s reliance on violence inflicted on youth. Ages 13–up. Agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House. (May)■

    Gr 9 Up-High school student Charlotte Westing isn't like her peers. She's an Oracle, and she is not allowed to tell anyone. Modern Oracles are forbidden to alter the future. Charlotte once tried to change an outcome based on a vision, with disastrous results. Now, under the tutelage of her aunt, also a seer, Charlotte struggles to contain her visions and keep them from getting through. Her new visions are too powerful, however, and break through all of Charlotte's defenses. The bloody and gruesome scenes she sees are of a serial killer's victims-her classmates. After a second murder, Charlotte gets a text from a stranger named Smith, imploring her to change the future and prevent more attacks. He can show her how, if she'll just let him into her mind. Can Charlotte change the future without repercussions? Is she willing to take the chance? Pike's newest novel is a thrilling paranormal mystery with a hint of romance. Charlotte is a likable and sympathetic character coping with larger-than-life problems. Her situation as an outsider is universal, even while the cause is firmly rooted in the realm of fiction. Teen girls, fans of Pike's previous novels, and those who are just discovering her will enjoy this unique, quick read.-Heather Miller Cover, Homewood Public Library, AL

  • Brandon Sanderson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Steelheart "Sleep No More was both imaginative and exciting—a mixture of a classical fantasy and a contemporary thriller. I enjoyed it immensely."
  • Dan Wells, author of Partials "Sleep No More is a supernatural thriller with tight pacing, brilliant world-building, and a fascinating heroine with an all-too-human mix of frailty and power. Twisty and mystical and satisfying. I couldn't put it down."
  • ALA Booklist "There's plenty of action, gore, and romance in this quick-paced read that will appeal to Pike's many fans."
  • School Library Journal "Pike's newest novel is a thrilling paranormal mystery with a hint of romance. Teen girls, fans of Pike's previous novels and those who are just discovering her will enjoy this unique, quick read."
  • Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) "Adrenaline junkies and fantasy lovers should both be satisfied with the story, the characters, and the exciting conclusion."
  • Kirkus Reviews PRAISE FOR LIFE AFTER THEFT: "In a refreshing departure from her plant-based paranormal-romance series, Pike develops the pleasantly fractious relationship between Jeff and Kimberlee in Jeff's earthy, humorous first-person. This brisk, down-to-earth thriller should appeal equally to male and female readers."
  • School Library Journal "A whirlwind adventure full of secrets, lies, unlikely friendships, and romance."
  • ALA Booklist "Jeff's journey to real empathy takes on issues crucial and relevant to teens: the price of popularity, the importance of being true to one's beliefs, and the need to stand up for others."
  • Stephenie Meyer, bestselling author of the Twilight Saga PRAISE FOR THE WINGS SERIES: "Wings is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds."
  • Carrie Jones, New York Times bestselling author of the Need series "Spells is brilliant and lovely. Aprilynne Pike's talent just continues to bloom and I am almost afraid to see how awesome her next book will be."
  • Lisa McMann, New York Times bestselling author of the Wake series "Who knew faeries could be this cool? Illusions has it all. It's fascinating, rich, and romantic, and weaves a great new tapestry of thrilling fantasy."
  • Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of the Evernight series "The greatest part: the Wings series reaches the perfect ending. The worst part: it has to end!"
  • Booklist (starred review) "Mixing a little bit of Harry Potter and a lot of Twilight, Pike has hit on a winning combination. Yet it is her own graceful take on life inside Avalon that adds a shimmering patina sure to enthrall readers"
  • Kirkus Reviews "Silky narration, delicious escapism."
