What's more, she's just discovered that a certain arrogant master vampire has a geis on her - a magical claim that warns off any would-be suitors, and might also explain the rather intense attraction between them. But Cassie has had it with being jerked around, and anyone who tries it from now on is going to find out that she makes a very bad enemy.

If you liked the first book, Touch the Dark, you will love this one. Be warned, just as book one left you hanging at the end so will this one. I can't wait to get book three. Hopefully audible will have it soon or I will have to go get the dead tree version
It's been 4 years since I read book 1 so it took me a while to remember who everyone was in this one. The first half was a little confusing with all the orbing in and out of different times and places.

I enjoyed the second half much more I like all the different fae creatures and the comedy Cassie's ghost supplies!

I listen to books 2-3 per week. This is THE worst book. I couldn't finish listening! Reviews said first book sucked (and they were spot on).
After just finishing Jill Kismet this book was a w f u l.
The story line definitely has potential, but the main character just comes off as naive and dingy. I made it through the first book and I thought I'd give it another try. I prefer kick butt bad azz chicks and Cassandra Palmer just doesn't do it for me. It's a shame because I really liked the other characters and the story line. The narrator did not help the situation. The narrator was fine for everyone else, but for Cassandra, the voice and tone was quite annoying.
Say something about yourself!
It is one thing for Cassandra to take the high road about weaponds and other things to which would allow her to defend herself. She winnes and has self loathing when someone gets hurt in protecting her, but when will it dawn on her to do something to protect herself. I am waiting on Pirtkin to tell her get a grip and help yourself or I am outta here.
This series has weaved a large world and there is still a lot of action happening at all times. It takes a bit of getting used to, but I am really glad I stuck with it. The author is starting to form whole pictures of each main figure and they are intriguing. I still have the narrator sped up a little bit, but she is also finding a wonderful voice for the characters. I enjoyed this book and look forward to seeing where this story goes!!
Cassie has inherited a huge amount of power when the title of Pythia passed to her. Although the power has chosen her, she has not received the usual training. The Pythia polices the timeline, protecting it from magic users who wish to alter the past to create a new future of their own choosing. And one particular evil time traveler wants to write Cassie out of the timeline for good.
In addition, Cassie discovered that the seductive Mircea had a geis placed on her that has gone awry, wildly escalating their already intense attraction to each other.
She finds herself jumping back and forth in time trying to evade the Silver Circle and Myra, who want her dead, and the vampire Senate who would like their own tame Pythia.
Cassie's adventures are set against the backdrop of Dante's Casino in Las Vegas where much delightful, inventive magic abounds. Vampires, war mages, gargoyles and ghoulies are among the mythical creatures that make up a normal day at Dante's.
