Publisher's Summary

It is 1915. 17-year-old Sasha Fox is the privileged only daughter of a respected doctor living in Brighton. But her brothers, Edgar and Tom, have gone to war and Sasha has a terrible gift. She can see the future.

Her premonitions show her untold horrors on the battlefields of the Somme. Corpse worms crawling over the faces of soldiers soon to die, and worse still, what will happen to Edgar and Tom.

Like the prophetess Cassandra, Sasha is trapped by power. No one will believe her. She feels stifled by her over-protective mother and restrictive father. Her family have lost faith in her. She is determined to win them back, whatever the price. And it is a high one - for who wants to see the end of their own story? But Alexandra is a heroine resourceful enough to try to change the path of Fate.

Absolutely amazing

Skipped a few paragraphs here and there but perfect for this story by Marcus Sedgwick. I never thought it could be better.
