Inescapable The Premonition Series By Amy A. Bartol
Evie Claremont starts her freshman year of college at Crestwood completely unaware that her life is about to change forever. Reed Wellington knows Evie is trouble the second he lays eyes on her and he knows what he should do about it. The problem is he’s drawn to her. In an epic way that he doesn’t fully understand.
Everyone is keeping secrets. Someone doesn’t even know that they are keeping a secret. All of the secrets are huge. They will change lives or end them.
This book was completely unique, so unique in fact that I’ve had a hard time defining it. It isn’t angst ridden in the usual way. I’ve read my share of angsty teen novels this year so I have become well acquainted with angst. This angst was different it felt real and not manufactured. The book starts out the way you would expect. Girl meets boys, girl is confused by boys (for different reasons) but that is where normalcy ends. I don’t want to say too much. I don’t want to spoil the surprise.
I was surprised, however, that this book hasn’t had more attention than it has. It is equal to the Fallen series and the Hush Hush series. I was most impressed by the fight scenes. You haven’t read anything until you’ve read an angel fight scene. My favorite was the parking lot fight. That was probably because of what came after it though. I have found that in urban fantasy books the characters with the extra special powers often don’t really use them. I was pleased to see that they did get used in this book.
This book explores a great triangle. Like everything else in this book, it involves a unique love triangle. Everyone has a soul mate and Russell is her soul mate. What happens when someone unexpected shows up and fate is put to the test? Fate doesn’t go quietly into the night I can tell you that.
I was impressed with the ending. Not everything is fine at the end of this book. The characters don’t come through it unscathed. Evie is in a bad way by the end of it. She is an emotional wreck and that carries over to the next book.
Evie’s journey is far from over and if this first book was any indication of her progression from mere human to heroine her fate truly is inescapable and I can’t wait to read about it.
