Ah the joys of being psychic, and a teenager: To know the future, but to be powerless to influence it. Wanting to fit in, but fearful of standing out.

This is the start of a series (The Seer #2: Last Dance is the next one due out), which I hope will be well received. There are few authors who are producing quality fiction which is "New Age" friendly, and Ms. Singleton is one of the better ones.

The gods know that young readers will be able to identify with Sabine Rose, the heroine of this series, even if they aren't psychic themselves. She suffers all the pains and uncertainties shared by teenagers in general, amplified by being "the new kid" and being sure that if anyone knew their "dark secret" they would be rejected and even more outcast. And, of course, someone accepting you is a cause of even more paranoia.

Imagine Sabine's surprise when she discovers a few others who aren't freaked out by her psychic abilities. Then imagine her astonishment at finding an occult shop (in every sense of the word) in the most unlikely of places. Then there is her developing family secret, and the fact that an outsider knows more about it than she does.

There is no neat resolution of this story, since it is designed to carry your interest forward. It is well written and enjoyable.
