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. (Summary from Goodreads)

Wow! Does this sound like a heart-pounding thrill ride? I'm not the biggest reader of thrillers, but premonitions, guilt, murder, and a mysterious "helper" make this story a must for my TBR list.

Growing up on Forge's streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that's not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs.
But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she's not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he's persistent - and darkly attractive - and Kyra can't quite resist his pull.
Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defenses with uncanny ease.
When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Tristam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival - and vengeance - might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra's past that threatens to reshape both their lives. (Summary from Goodreads)

Now I want to know what the secret is! Don't you!? This sounds great! And that cover is gorgeous!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Both of these look good, but I must admit, Midnight Thief looks more my speed. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I'm not very interested in reading Sleep No More, but Midnight Thief looks like a great read! I don't think I've ever heard of that one until now.
