[Review]: Premonitions by Jamie Schultz

Title: Premonitions
Author: Jamie Schultz
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: July 1, 2014

I received this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

Summary:  It’s the kind of score Karyn Ames has always dreamed of—enough to set her crew up pretty well and, more important, enough to keep her safely stocked on a very rare, very expensive black market drug. Without it, Karyn hallucinates slices of the future until they totally overwhelm her, leaving her unable to distinguish the present from the mess of certainties and possibilities yet to come.

The client behind the heist is Enoch Sobell, a notorious crime lord with a reputation for being ruthless and exacting—and a purported practitioner of dark magic. Sobell is almost certainly condemned to Hell for a magically extended lifetime full of shady dealings. Once you’re in business with him, there’s no backing out.

Karyn and her associates are used to the supernatural and the occult, but their target is more than just the usual family heirloom or cursed necklace. It’s a piece of something larger. Something sinister.

Karyn’s crew and even Sobell himself are about to find out just how powerful it is… and how powerful it may yet become.

Exciting read! I hadn't heard of Premonitions until the author emailed me, but I'm glad I decided to read it. I really enjoyed the crew, especially Anna (and not just because we share a name), she's a great character. I actually liked Anna more than the main character Karyn. Premonitions is dark and gritty. A mixture of suspense and fantasy.  The heists will have you on the edge of your seat. Set in Los Angeles, made for a nice change of scenery.  I think urban fantasy fans will loved this one.

Score: 4 Stars
