Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—High school student Charlotte Westing isn't like her peers. She's an Oracle, and she is not allowed to tell anyone. Modern Oracles are forbidden to alter the future. Charlotte once tried to change an outcome based on a vision, with disastrous results. Now, under the tutelage of her aunt, also a seer, Charlotte struggles to contain her visions and keep them from getting through. Her new visions are too powerful, however, and break through all of Charlotte's defenses. The bloody and gruesome scenes she sees are of a serial killer's victims-her classmates. After a second murder, Charlotte gets a text from a stranger named Smith, imploring her to change the future and prevent more attacks. He can show her how, if she'll just let him into her mind. Can Charlotte change the future without repercussions? Is she willing to take the chance? Pike's newest novel is a thrilling paranormal mystery with a hint of romance. Charlotte is a likable and sympathetic character coping with larger-than-life problems. Her situation as an outsider is universal, even while the cause is firmly rooted in the realm of fiction. Teen girls, fans of Pike's previous novels, and those who are just discovering her will enjoy this unique, quick read.—Heather Miller Cover, Homewood Public Library, AL

From Booklist

Sixteen-year-old Charlotte Westing is shy and not especially popular, and she has long been ostracized for her frequent health issues, including debilitating migraines that accompany her rare gift/curse—she’s an Oracle and can see the future. To date, that ability has not served her well. Ten years ago, she broke rules that led to her father’s death and her mother’s wheelchair-bound state. Charlotte is guided in her Oracle training by her aunt Sierra, who teaches her to resist the urge to follow through on her visions and interfere with possible future outcomes. But when Charlotte’s classmates begin falling to a serial killer, she decides it is time to ignore that training and follow the advice of Smith, a mysterious man who seems to know about Oracles. Unlike Aunt Sierra, he’s happy to teach her what he knows. There’s plenty of action, gore, and romance in this quick-paced read that will appeal to Pike’s many fans. As Charlotte figures out the rather obvious solution to the mystery, she gains self-confidence and strength, leading to a satisfying conclusion. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The droves of fans for the Wings Series will be ready and waiting for Pike’s latest. Grades 8-11. --Debbie Carton

First, I would like to thank Andye from Readingteen.net for giving me an ARC copy of Sleep No More to read, thank you so much!!!!

Going in to this book, I had absolutely no idea what it was about except that it involved Oracles. Suffice to say, I didn’t except to enjoy it as much as I did since a ton of reviewers have been leaving it 3 stars or less, but surprise, it was basically a murder mystery with a twist! And I love me some murder mystery.

Charlotte is an Oracle, and she starts receiving these premonitions in which she sees classmates of hers brutally murdered. Like anyone else with a soul, she can’t stand not doing anything about these murders, but that goes against everything she’s ever been taught about being an Oracle: fight the visions, don’t change the future, and most importantly, don’t tell anyone you’re an Oracle. But even that isn't enough for her to try and stop the serial killer haunting her town.

Pike crafted this story so well I had no idea what to expect. I had my suspicions about who may be the killer, but then something would happen and I’d second guess myself. There was romance; more second hand to the story, but it was there. Plus, it took a twist at the end that one usually doesn't see in YA literature, so I doubly applaud Pike for that. This story was full of imagination, what with the supernatural aspect and psyche aspects that require the reader to craft a dream world and just roll with all the twist and turns that causes. The action in this story, though a bit slow in the beginning, quickly picked up, and once the climax hit it was nonstop action there on out, I loved it. Some stand alone novels fail in the way that their climactic scene lasts about two pages then everything is solved BAM! No questions asked. But no, not this book.

Achingly Beautiful and Haunting! A Must Read for Fans of Mystery and the Supernatural!

This novel portrays the deeper and more horrific consequences of having a paranormal ability, and the sacrifices one has to make to save lives. Charlotte is an oracle who can see the future. She has always been told that she has to fight her visions and let things happen as they are meant to happen without interfering. Unfortunately, her visions become stronger and more uncontrollable, and she foresees the murders of several of her classmates. Should she try to change the future or should she do as she is told and let the future come to pass as it is meant to happen?

I loved this novel! Definitely more edgy and horrific compared to other teen fiction, and I felt it contained so much emotion and depth as to warrant it a read for a truly mature audience. I was heartbroken as well as depressed after finishing this read, but my tears were worth it so I could gain a whole new perspective on the evils of human crime, the aftereffects of losing a loved one, and the realization of coming to terms with this grievous act of violence.

Aprilynne Pike did a wonderful job writing this book, and she deserves accolades for her honesty and her uninhibited portrayal of crime in all its misery, hopelessness, and viciousness. I look forward to reading more from this amazing writer, and I thank her for taking on this project! It has changed me and made me a better person!

My Thoughts: I read this one in a day! Right through the night! And early the next morning.

We are introduced to Charlotte who is an oracle.She sees the future. But she has spent her whole life learning how to block it out and ignore it. She shouldn't change it because it can change things in the long run! And oh can it! Charlotte lives with her mother and her aunt. Her dad died when she was young.

Charlotte has had a crush on a boy named Linden forever! Ever since she was a kid when he helped her! Linden was such a cutie! I really liked him even though he isn’t perfect.

When murders start happening in her small town, Charlotte starts to worry. She sees them before they happen. She has a hard time fighting the visions.

Charlotte meets a man named Smith who offers to guide her with her visions. He encourages her to let them come and help the victims. To change things. To keep them alive. Honestly, I wasn't sure what to think of Smith. Wasn't sure if I liked him or not at first.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers so read this one now! Does Charlotte catch the killer? Who all has to die first?

The only thing I didn’t really like is the ending with Linden. I just wasn't too fond of it, even though it does make sense. I just wanted something else to happen I guess.

Overall: I enjoyed this one. A little paranormal mixed with a murder mystery? Yes please. It was also a bit creepy reading it in the middle of the night, in the dark. Gave me the creeps!

I liked the story, I liked the characters, so all in all I‘ll give it 4 cupcakes!

Cover: Its ok! Its a little bit creepy. And intriguing.

What I’d Give It: 4/5 Cupcakes

I finished Sleep No More about a month ago and honestly it took me that long to write this review. On the one hand, I adored the mystery aspect of the story. Learning about Oracles, their lore and history, and how they interact with the world was quite entertaining and is the main reason I continued to plow through this novel. But on the opposite end of this spectrum I felt nothing for our main character Charlotte other than pity. To begin with Sleep No More is compared to Inception – I didn’t relate this novel to Inception, at all. Unless you are talking about the Oracles going into this dreamlike state and altering things they’ve seen…but that’s still making this comparison a stretch (a wide stretch) at best.

When Charlotte was younger she used her Oracle powers to save the life of someone she loved only to lose another person in their place. Because of this, she lives a very sheltered life. Hiding her abilities and forcing away the vision as her aunt taught her to do. Her only friend is a super-hot guy who, seems to only care for her because she seems fragile – oh and she takes his mind off his dead girlfriend (WTH???). However, I tried to work with it but for the most part I didn’t enjoy the romance aspects of this book. I wasn’t swooning or falling in love with old whatever-his-name-is-I-don’t-care-enough-to-remember.

Let’s move on to what I did like. The murder mystery, which is the catalyst for Charlotte doing something and actually learning more about her abilities than what her aunt allowed her to know, was pretty decent. I enjoyed watching Charlotte manipulate ‘the future” and learn to control her powers. I also liked the “whodunit” aspect of it. My only grip with this bit of Sleep No More is the creepy man Charlotte meets.
