Review by

This is the first of a series set in an alternate world, where a persecuted minority have paranormal powers. Life in this dystopia isn’t great for the ‘normals’ either. The legal options for getting a buzz on are so limited that Paige’s cover job is serving in an oxygen bar. In this fast moving book, there’s just time to establish that she’s really part of London’s clairvoyant underworld before events drag her off to a secret prison camp. There she discovers unexpected truths about her society, with the inevitable massive great hint of deeper revelations yet to come. I definitely want to spend more time with Paige and find out what happens next. She has great parkour skills(!), becomes a resourceful leader, and makes an engaging first person narrator.
