Publisher's Summary

Recently named the world's chief clairvoyant, Cassandra Palmer still has a thorn in her side. As long as Cassie and a certain master vampire---the sizzling-hot Mircea---are magically bound to each other, her life will never be her own.

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.

Really good series

This book has lots of action. Vamps, Pixies, Witches, a little sex and a lot of laughs. Great narrator.

Fun and worth the listen

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.

Timey Wimey

Time travel is always tricky, especially in a book with this much constant action. It is played out well here, with a few holes that are easy to over look, since the story in itself is fun and keeps your interest easily. The narrator, whom I know from other books, is very good in this one, the timing is finally spot on, an it is a pleasure to listen to. Best to start at the beginning with this series, as the world in it is all connected book to book. Really liking this series!!

Fun, sexy, wildly inventive UF series!

Any additional comments?

Another great installment in a fun series. This one follows Cassie's escapades through time as she frantically tries to save Mircea's life and both of their sanities from a spell gone wrong. Fun, sexy, wildly inventive UF.

3 ☆'s

This book was OK. Some parts seemed to drag on. I found myself rewinding parts over and over because they were boring but, critical to the storyline.

Great Story

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.

Worst Narrator Ever!

I have to give this narrator credit for curing insomnia. This narration can put you to sleep in no time.

Like the stories--hate the narrator

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.
