The spell that binds them can only be broken with an incantation found in the Codex Merlini, an ancient grimoire. The Codex's location has been lost in the present day, so Cassie will have to seek it out in the only place it can still be found---the past.
But Cassie soon realizes the Codex has been lost for a reason. The book is rumored to contain some seriously dangerous spells, and retrieving it may help Cassie to deal with Mircea, but it could also endanger the world.

"Karen Chance will entrall you." (Rebecca York, author of Ghost Moon)
Like all of you, I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors. I am currently listening to 'Cold Days' by Jim Butcher.
This series is just plain fun. These characters aren't the sharpest tools in the shed, but they are hilariously flawed :) I can't wait for y'll to get the next book in this series as well as more books from Karen Chance.
Ms. Chance has created a great fantasy. Cassie Palmer gets more and more interesting with each installment of the series. The only thing lacking with Cassie's character is that she doesn't seem to want to be intelligent; she only learns accidentally or when she is forced to read something. It would be a nice addition to the character if she would try to be knowledgeable.
I have to give this narrator credit for curing insomnia. This narration can put you to sleep in no time.
I like the series other than the fact that the heroine is as dumb as a box of rocks, it gets tiresome after a while. I would recommend the stories but caution as strongly as possible to be prepared for some of the most mangled pronunciations a narrator has ever uttered. I like the stories enough to try to ignore it, bad luck for us this narrator does most of the authors I like so I am getting better at finding her less maddening.
