Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clairvoyant Cassie Plamer has inherited new magical powers — including the ability to travel through time. But it's a whole lot of responsibility she'd rather not have. Now she's the most popular girl in town, as an assortment of vamps, fey, and mages try to convince, force, or seduce her — and her magic — over to their side. But one particular master vampire didn't ask what Cassie wanted before putting a claim on her. He had a spell cast that binds her to him, and now she doesn't know if what she feels for him is real-or imagined...

Review:

"A fair maiden tough enough to kick [vampire] butts." Rebecca York, USA Today bestselling author Shadow of the Moon

Review:

"An engaging heroine." Kelley Armstrong, USA Today bestselling author of Broken

Synopsis:

Being a goddess is a lot less fun than you might think. Especially when youre only a half goddess, and you only found out about it recently, and you still dont know what youre doing half the time. And when youve just used your not-so-reliable powers to burglarize the booby-trapped office of a vampire mob boss.

 

Yeah, that part sucks.

 

But thats just the tip of the iceberg for Cassandra Palmer, aka the Pythia, the freshly minted chief seer of the supernatural world. After all, Cassie still has to save a friend from a fate worse than death, deal with an increasingly possessive master vampire, and prevent a party of her own acolytes from unleashing a storm of fury upon the world. Totally just your average day at the office, right?

Synopsis:

Dorina Basarab is a dhampir—half-human, half-vampire. Subject to uncontrollable rages, most dhampirs live very short, very violent lives. But so far, Dory has managed to maintain her sanity by unleashing her anger on those demons and vampires who deserve killing...

Dory is used to fighting hard and nasty. So when she wakes up in a strange scientific lab with a strange man standing over her, her first instinct is to take his head off. Luckily, the man is actually the master vampire Louis-Cesare, so he’s not an easy kill.

It turns out that Dory had been working with a Vampire Senate task force on the smuggling of magical items and weaponry out of Faerie when she was captured and brought to the lab. But when Louis-Cesare rescues her, she has no memory of what happened to her.

To find out what was done to her—and who is behind it—Dory will have to face off with fallen angels, the maddest of mad scientists, and a new breed of vampires that are far worse than undead…

Cassandra Palmer is heir to title of Pythia, the world's strongest clairvoyant. Normally the heir would be trained from birth, but Cassie isn't exactly normal. Being raised by vampires and living on the run have turned Cassie into someone on the fringes of every kind of society, not to mention that the whole being clairvoyant and seeing ghosts isn't exactly helpful if you want to blend in. Even worse she discovers that a powerful vampire put a spell on her to warn off any would be suiters and that a rouge wanna-be Pythia is trying to kill her. She has to try and take out the girl who is after her, while carefully avoiding any contact with men that the spell thinks may be a threat.

Karen Chance's first book was quite good, with only minor problems; this one is much better. Chance keeps the fab characters and interesting, high speed plot but fixes her pacing problems and her writing flows much more smoothly. I was delighted that I was correct and the author just needed to work through the kinks to write a brilliant story.
