“I spent my birthday fast asleep. In a coma to be exact.”
When Savannah wakes up after two months in the hospital, she sees a whole lot more than expected, things that could put those close to her at risk.
The five Delcarta sisters have never believed in the paranormal, not like their woo-woo mother. Instead they believe in the power of sisterhood, of romance, and rebuilding their lives after their father’s mysterious disappearance nine years earlier. Starting anew in the small town of Iris Harbor, they see potential in all.
But Savannah’s awakening after having surgery on a life-threatening aneurysm brings a unique ability to the Delcarta sisters–together, each can predict the future with one of the five senses. And Savannah has the gift of sight.
A serial arsonist has been terrorizing the tight-knit community, and the Delcarta sisters have their suspicions on who could be to blame, including a boy who starts as an adversary to Savannah and then very quickly becomes her whole world. Investigating these crimes, trying to stop them before the next flame is sparked will call upon Savannah to use her newfound abilities with the help of her sisters, and will put each of their lives in danger.
This stunning new paranormal series blends the sweetest of romances with breathless suspense, and introduces five young women who share a haunted past, an extraordinary gift, and an uncertain future.
*ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review *
Sight by Juliet Madison is a compelling, fast-paced, YA paranormal story with interesting and likable characters who keep readers invested in their story from the first page onward. The main heroine in this story, sixteen year-old Savannah Delcarta, underwent surgery to remove a brain aneurysm and then spent two months in a coma afterward. Upon awakening, Savannah, along with her four sisters, discover they have new psychic gifts, Savannah’s being the gift of sight. Together, these five sisters are able to see bits and pieces of the future, and it’s these new gifts that forces them to work together to find out the identity of the serial arsonist plaguing their new town, and makes them determined to figure out how to stop them before anyone else gets hurt.
Though Sight deals with the suspenseful storyline of a serial arsonist, it’s also contains some romance, and a whole lot about family and sisters and learning how to overcome tragedies from the past. It’s an engrossing, suspenseful, somewhat humorous read that I thoroughly enjoyed and I think most other YA readers will enjoy it as well.
A fantastic start to what appears to be an intriguing new series! I recommend it!
