Premonitions: By Jaime Schultz



Two Million Dollars...

It’s the kind of score Karyn Ames has always dreamed of—enough to set her crew up pretty well and, more important, enough to keep her safely stocked on a very rare, very expensive black market drug. Without it, Karyn hallucinates slices of the future until they totally overwhelm her, leaving her unable to distinguish the present from the mess of certainties and possibilities yet to come.

The client behind the heist is Enoch Sobell, a notorious crime lord with a reputation for being ruthless and exacting—and a purported practitioner of dark magic. Sobell is almost certainly condemned to Hell for a magically extended lifetime full of shady dealings. Once you’re in business with him, there’s no backing out.

Karyn and her associates are used to the supernatural and the occult, but their target is more than just the usual family heirloom or cursed necklace. It’s a piece of something larger. Something sinister.

Karyn’s crew and even Sobell himself are about to find out just how powerful it is… and how powerful it may yet become.

Premonitions really is a great book.

Part urban fantasy and part crime heist readers will instantly be drawn into Premonitions as readers are immediately thrown into a potentially deadly heist gone wrong. Between that and the introduction of Karyn powers of premonitions readers wont be able to put this book down.

Of course while the heists, interesting powers, and nonstop action are all great aspects of the book, in my opinion the most fascinating aspect of the book is the way the author Jaime Schultz jumps between the characters showing the reader each of their point of view. The fascinating thing about this is that he makes each of the characters so real. No one character is “the good guy” nor is anyone “the bad guy” in the traditional sense. In a much more convoluted yet realistic way everyone has their own goals, decisions, ambitions, and faults. No one is perfect and no one is fighting for the “right” side.

While everyone might not enjoy this very cloudy and convoluted view of the world I found it fascinating. Between the constantly changing POVs, the incredible action, and the fast moving plot I personally couldn’t put this books down.

All in all this Premonitions is a great book for fans of V.E. Schwab’s Vicious, Mark Lawrence’s The Broken Empire, or Seanan McGuire’s InCrptid series.
