It is 1915. 17-year-old Sasha Fox is the privileged only daughter of a respected doctor living in Brighton. But her brothers, Edgar and Tom, have gone to war and Sasha has a terrible gift. She can see the future.

Her premonitions show her untold horrors on the battlefields of the Somme. Corpse worms crawling over the faces of soldiers soon to die, and worse still, what will happen to Edgar and Tom.

Like the prophetess Cassandra, Sasha is trapped by power. No one will believe her. She feels stifled by her over-protective mother and restrictive father. Her family have lost faith in her. She is determined to win them back, whatever the price. And it is a high one - for who wants to see the end of their own story...? But Alexandra is a heroine resourceful enough to try to change the path of Fate. Download and start listening now!

    " The ending is funny in a horrible sort of way in how the book goes "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristin | 1/29/2014

    " This book bothered me in multiple ways.it was written in very shot chapters which got very anoying. Second it was written in first person which also got anoying as well. and thridly it wasn't that great of a book. "

    " A look at WWI and the stifled life of woman of that era. Sasha has premonitions of others' impending deaths, and yet this story is oddly flat, maybe because the character does not want to confront this "gift". I enjoyed this for the history more than the story itself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyleigh | 12/27/2013

    " I was sadly disappointed in this book. A good story of the war, but the story line was lacking. The character's were ok, but it just seemed like the plot didn't go anywhere. Overall it was ok, just not great. Check it out at your library first, then decide if you want to buy it. "

    " Loved this book, as it was told in a fascinating way. However, the ending lets the rest of the book down as I was expecting something... more, to fit with the rest of the book. "

    " I had to read this for a trip I'm going on and it was pretty interesting. I liked the way it was written. It started with like chapter 101 and went all the way back down to one. I enjoyed reading it and it also helps you understand the first civil war because that is its setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisha | 7/14/2012

    " Wonderfully written, gripping plot, fresh and original... until the end. The end RUINED my opinion of the author and book. The final pages are HORRIFYING and completely out of character for the protagonist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni | 3/30/2011

    " Everything about this book is thought about- the way the chapters run backwards, the pages with only black, everything. I read this for the North East Book Awards, it was my winner, and sure enough it was the winner of the entire competition. "

    " The plot was very creative and I didn't hate the book as I was reading it. The end was so anticlimatic and unfinished I feel. Also, I feel like his voice was too modern for World War I and I wasn't convinced that I was reading the voice of a teenage girl. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 3/15/2010

    " It was ok. Nothing special. I felt like the ending was very rushed. Almost like the author didn't know how to end it. My anticipation was building up to nothing. "
