I also had some reservations about a guy writing a female POV heroine, but Anna Zaires (his wife) mentioned in a newsletter that they had in fact co-authored the book, and I have to say, I really liked the narrative voice, it’s a perfect combination of snarky and sweet, quirky and down to earth.
I found the premise different enough to spark my interest: it can best be described as a kind of Minority Report meets The Mentalist. The heroine, Sasha Urban (ok, her surname does appear a tad corny) believes herself to be a quite ordinary person living in a normal world. By day she works as an analyst for an investment firm and though she admits to some natural aptitude she thinks it’s mostly hard work that makes her so good at her job, even if she doesn’t particularly like it. At night she pursues her real passion and works as a magician/mentalist at a restaurant/club where she performs magic tricks that can all be explained rationally. One night she is approached by a TV show producer who offers her an appearance on a live show and she grabs it with both hands. While in the studio she has her first real vision and it is not a good one. And though her vision turns true, she refuses to believe that she has any supernatural ability and is looking for a rational explanation for the events. Unfortunately her TV appearance has also brought her to the attention of the supernatural community (the Cognizants) that has a strong mandate against exposing their world to normal humans. Soon different factions of Cognizants are after her while she is still looking for a rational explanation for everything that is happening and has difficulties coming to terms with her precognitive abilities, even though all her visions/dreams come true. But that only makes her question herself more as she is afraid that she is in fact enacting a self-fulfilling prophecy…
This first book in the Sasha Urban series has all the right ingredients: a quirky, likable heroine, great supporting characters, a good narrative voice, great (but not overwhelming) world-building, an urban setting (New York) that is an important part of the story (the perfect backdrop for a scooter chase), good overall pacing, an interesting slew of supernatural creatures (vampires, necromancers, zombies, patterners, precogs, truth seekers and other less common mythical creatures, including a domovoi, a type of Russian house elf). There is also the mystery of the heroine’s origins that is alluded to, and two mysterious men that promise to become even more important in the future.
I was wholly captivated by this first installment of the Sasha Urban series and would give it a solid 4 ½ stars. Can’t wait to get my hands on book 2, titled Misfortune Teller, set to be released on September 4, 2018.
The Girl Who Sees is the first book in the Sasha Urban series.
Final Rating: 5 Stars
Sasha Urban is an appealing character. A young Stock Annalist with big heart good friends and a dream of making it in show business as a Mentalist. She’s not a psychic of course, She just wants to leave you wondering what else she possibly. could be.
Her big break is a great success until a zombie like crasher shows up and tries to kill her.
That night she dreams about a necromancer who is busy raising cadavers, which end up chasing her the next day.
We don’t find out what’s really going on until the end of the book. It’s a few weeks until the next book is released. Which is good. One has to rest up for another all night read!
I will say I definitely recommend it and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!
The story is beautifully well written, amazingly well develop plot and subplots, and vey compelling characters that are not only likeable, but very believable!!
Can't wait for the continuations of this mind-blowing story!!
