Customer reviews

By Cherry 05 Aug 2010 3

The story-telling quality is good although it has some annoying tendencies like trying to paint the female protagonist as stupid in an effort to create more drama in the story. I find that irritating to read. There is also too many time travels back and forth, back and forth, which is kinda dizzying to the reader. Having said that, the author has cleverly avoided paradoxes which is the usual pitfall of time tavel stories. This book is also fast-paced and never a boring moment. On the whole I would give this book a 3 and a half out of five.

Review quote

"Returning from "Touch the Dark" and "Claimed by Shadow", Cassie Palmer has finally become Pythia, the supernatural community's all-knowing oracle. She's struggling with her new powers (such as shifting back and forth through time) and is stuck between good and evil factions of the paranormal community. Her main concern, though, is to figure out how to reverse a pesky spell that threatens her independence: the geis, once placed on her for protection, is now trying to bind her to the handsome master vampire, Mircea, with results detrimental to them both. The only solution is to find the fabled book that has the counterspell--find it in space and time. Cassie--in her struggles between her passionate need for independence, her burgeoning feelings for Mircea and her conflicts with her new role as Pythia--is a well-rounded character, and the intensity and complexity of the plot puts her through her paces physically, emotionally and psychically."-"Publishers Weekly" "Karen Chance will enthrall you with her world of vampires, mages, and a fair maiden tough enough to kick their butts."-"USA Today" bestselling author Rebecca York "A great writer of supernatural fantasy that is on a par with the works of Kim Harrison, Charlaine Harris, and Kelley Armstong."-"Midwest Book Review"
