“Premonitions” kicks the Bechdel test’s ass- and then some. The book is full of well-rounded female characters, straight & lesbian, includes a lesbian relationship, and a racially diverse cast as well, with black and Asian main characters.
I LOVED this book. The way that Karyn’s psychic abilities are described was very evocative- it felt like watching a horror movie. I loved the very diverse cast of characters and how all of them had their own distinct personality, backstory, and motivations. My favorite character was actually the “bad guy,” Enoch Sobell :) The plot had great pacing: it was fast-moving and full of action, but still left time for character development.
I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who likes urban paranormal/fantasy/spec-fic and diverse, well-developed characters. I can’t wait till the next one comes out!!
