Embrace the Night (Roc Fantasy)by Karen Chance
Synopses & Reviews
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…
Youd think that being chief seer for the supernatural world would come with a few perks. But as Cassie Palmer has learned, being Pythia doesnt mean you dont have to do things the hard way. Thats why she finds herself on a rescue mission skipping through time—even though she doesnt entirely understand her dimension-bending new power.
Rescuing her friend John Pritkin should have been an in-and-out kind of deal, but with the near-immortal mages soul lost in time, Cassie has to hunt for it through the ages—with Pritkins demon dad in tow. Hes the only one who can reverse Pritkins curse, but with the guardians of the timeline dead set on stopping anyone from mucking about, Cassie will have to figure out how to get her friend back without ruffling too many feathers—or causing a world-ending paradox or two....
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?
