Joe is seemingly an ordinary college student. She works, studies and reads. But in between these activities Joe has a gift that promises to add a dose of color to her life at any given moment. Joe sees things before they happen. Bad things, and the worst thing she has ever faced is just around the corner. Someone is planning a massacre at the college university that Joe attends, and the only person with a hope of stopping the psychopath is her. Oh, the beauty of foresight. More like a curse. Joe has four days to figure out the mystery, make plans to take down the psycho, and save the lives of people. People like you and me. Ordinary people.

I cannot believe on what I have experienced with this book. My curiosity never fails! Joe did not let me sleep for two nights because of her gift and that also means how good SO GOOD! this book is. I am excited, agitated, emotionally energized upon reading this!

Like duh who would not feel like this when reading Joe!
Joe is a precognitive girl. She says she is no hero but I strongly disagree. She is a fighter, not literally fight bad people in a jail but a fighter at heart or none the less. She is quiet because of her stutter problem and this left her low on her self-esteem. But because of her visions, she takes a responsibility and upon herself to do everything in her control to stop the premonitions to become true.

What makes this book more electrifying to read is The Decider. He decides it all, a psychopath who decides it all. He will kill and kills. He hates us. He really hates. He even detests a raven in his dreams but tells himself that no one can ever stop him.

You will fall in love with Joe. She was written uniquely in today’s lit. Aside from Joe being the protagonist, it also includes seven that were being described through. The writing style is very creative and every chapter is structured well! What a writing indeed!

Joe is a page turner, written unwarily and sodding flow! I did not force any effort to read it. A prowess! I extremely, highly, overly recommend this book especially to readers who love thrillers and suspense!

Dandy job H.D. Gordon!

P.S. If you happen to read this already, tell me who is The Decider and why!

Let's leave it up to this quote from Emily Brontë:
"And from the midst of cheerless gloom
I passed to bright unclouded day."
