Precognitions by Daniela I. Norris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Precognitions builds upon the three intertwined stories of the first two books in the series, Recognitions and Premonitions, drawing the strands together into a strong rope with satisfactory, yet open, conclusions.
In the previous episode the three main protagonists were Amelia of twenty-first century New York, Adele of eighteenth-century France and a shaman from a remote village in West Africa in the fifteenth century. Although these characters figure in the third volume, the focus shifts to Jen, the daughter of Amelia, Jules, the lover of Adele, and the protégé and successor of the original shaman in the first two books. However, the continuity is excellent.
Once again, the stories run along at a perfect pace to keep the interest of the reader. I always wanted to read on. Not only that, but the prose has great rhythm and melody and even harmony. It is easy to read.
As a strong believer in the interconnectedness of everything, through both time and space, the series has played to all that I already know. I loved it. Having said that, sharing those beliefs is not necessary. I am sure that most of you will enjoy the book.
The only demerits are that there are times when tenses are mixed within paragraphs or even sentences and there are a few typos or minor errors that should have been picked up by proof-readers.
I recommend the book to all of my friends and I would advise that it would be best to read the series in order even though it would be possible to read each book as a standalone.
