#BookReview: Foretold (The Scryers #1) by Violet Lumani

Synopsis: Cassandra sees death and devastation all around her. In vivid detail.

It’s the price of living with her OCD and extreme anxiety. In every situation, Cass imagines the worst possible fate for everyone in her life. Her dad in a pool of blood after a break-in. Her beloved older neighbor, homeless. A splinter in her finger turned to gangrene.

But this time, it’s not her imagination. The boy next door, Colin, is destined to die. Cass has foretold a real death before; she knows this is a true vision.

Desperate to save Colin's life, Cass immerses herself in a secret organization of soothsayers that promises to teach her how to change the future she foresees. But as she descends into their hidden world of divinatory magic and predictive technology, she discovers there's always a price to pay for unraveling fate's strands. And cheating death will cost her everything.


Rating: 1 Star
My Review:  This story just didn't work for me at all. I DNFed it early on and I just couldn't pick it back up.  The story and characters and just the whole thing just didn't work at all. It was very boring I will say that the magical system/idea in this one sounded very interesting but the execution just fell flat. 

From the Inside Flap

As if struggling with OCD and extreme anxiety wasn't enough, high schooler Cass Morai discovers she can also see the future. But only by joining a secret organization of soothsayers can she hope to rewrite fate and save the life of the boy she's falling in love with.
