Publisher's Summary

Cassie Palmer, chief seer of the supernatural world, faces her biggest challenge yet - her own allies! Everything's on the line in the latest thrilling entry in the New York Times best-selling urban fantasy series. 

Cassie Palmer has been chief seer of the supernatural world for a little over four months. In that time, she's battled two gods, fallen in love with two men, and confronted the two sides of her own nature, both god and human. So it's not surprising that she currently finds herself facing two adversaries, although they have a single purpose: to wipe out the supernatural community's newest fighting force, leaving it vulnerable to enemies in this world and beyond. 

To prevent catastrophe, the vamps, mages, and demons will have to do the one thing they've never managed before and come together as allies. Cassie has the difficult task of keeping the uneasy coalition intact, and of persuading her own two opposing forces, a powerful mage with a secret and a master vampire with a growing obsession, to fight at her side. She just hopes they can do it without tearing each other apart. 

Contains mature themes.

A fantastic ride, as always

I always enjoy Cassie's adventures, this one is no exception. Even at 20+ hours it was over too fast for me, I need about 50+ hours when it's a Cassandra Palmer book!

Just wow!

I loved this book. Things are starting to come full circle and love how the Cassie-verse and the Dory-verse are starting to flow together. Blew through it in 2 days! I think that is a record for me.

Great addition

I'm a big fan of this series. I love the fast pace chaos and how it all seems to fit together/make perfect sense once we get to the conclusion. It becomes all about the journey. Like all journeys, this book was a nice addition as we transition from last ones epic battle. It tied up loose ends at the same time it set up future books. So excited for more of my favorites.

Brilliant writing! Fantastically complex story!

Karen Chance is a truly gifted author. This, her latest Cassie book, is another shinning example of her talents. The storyline continues to build on itself and we delve deeper into the building war with the gods. Her characters continue to be complex and ever evolving. The story line gains complexities and continues to expand and explain the depths of our characters, their goals and ambitions and hints at the future of what is yet to come. I finished this is a day as i could not out it down and now that I've read it twice I’ve listened to it to and the experience is immensely enjoyable!

A grand chaotic spectacle as always

It was a lovely roller coster that left me breathless at the end. a couple good points are i am glad that cassy is starting to actually reflect and think about a lot of the stuff she is doing rather than just constantly reacting to it. Also i was holding my breath when two certain characters met for real, and breathed such a happy sigh of relief at the end. though i have to admit Karen may have given me an ulcer or two while it was happening!
A couple of...not really bad points but things that irked me . I'm not sure if it's exactly fair to say this here sense it is something that just about all urban fantasy novels with heroine leads do, but the alpha male character constantly yelling about or actively impeding the female leads every move and the female lead only ever putting up the most taken of rebukes for the extra strain they deal with because of it gets rather tedious at times. Maybe there is some allegory or metaphor that as a guy i don't get, but i just don't see how anyone could like, let alone love, someone when they are constantly trying to make their lover take them seriously as a person rather than some kind of frail pet. Still i have to admit that this series is not as bad as some, but i was disappointed a couple times when Pritkin started to do it. The only other thing that irked me about this book, is that Karen Chance has a bad habit of going off on tangents in the middle of conversations, so much so that i kind of forget what the whole thing was about in the first place. LOL even during some of the sexier moments of the book.
A single bad point. This is of course annoying back seat driving, but i have to say that after 9 pretty good sized books the whole bumbly chaotic i don't have a clue how to really use my power thing is kind of old. I hope Cassy continues with her training but honestly she didn't look like she wanted to continue with it after a single session, so i won't hold my breath.
In the end i was well satisfied and had a good time. so money well spent.

Cassie annoyed me in this book.

I.. I’m not sure what to think about this book. I feel like I have been looking forward to a book where she isn’t with the vampire and she can freely be with Pritkin. But the thing is, I hated Cassie in this book. She cried a lot and her self doubt was unbearable. I get she’s had some shit thrown at her but I just didn’t understand why all of a sudden her strong-ness went away. In the other books she took everything that came at her and she dealt with it. In this book she cried and got mad at everyone. I just didn’t like her here. She wasn’t good enough for Pritkin.

Pritkin is amazing. I love him. I love him so much. He’s all I wanted in this book and we got him.

I will probably have to stop reading if she ever goes back to the vampire because I hate him.

I gave this book 3 stars... mainly actually only because Cassie got weird and I didn’t like it. But the storyline was good.
