Aislin has the Reverie. She can see the future in her dreams. Events to come have always been delivered to her while she sleeps, but until tragedy strikes her family they are just meaningless glimpses of teenage life. Now her dreams have disappeared altogether and girls from her school are falling prey to a vicious killer in the village. She knows that she is the only person with the vision to identify the killer and do something about the serial slayings terrorizing her friends, but with her sleeping mind switched to blank she is powerless to help. Everyone is a potential suspect in a village of weird and broken characters. But Aislin can only begin to sift through the ever-expanding suspect list once she has looked deep into herself and the history of her power, and found a way to reignite the flames of vision from within. What she finds will lead her on a dangerous path into the clutches of an evil that may never let her go.

An Irish girl Aislin (Ashlin – the book does help with welcome pronunciation of names) has the power of second sight but tends to keep it to herself as school friends are cynical. Disturbing and heartbreaking events unfold and she tries hard to keep it together as her dreams become more and more graphic. I did guess the ‘baddie’ pretty quickly but it didn’t spoil the well written story, and I read it in three sessions. A good first book left open for more….
