Great read with non-stop action involving mages (magic), witches, vampires, casino life, time travel, Fairies, humor, love, intrigue....you get the picture. This was the best of the three so far and I can't wait until the fourth book is published. Karen Chance has turned into a very good author with an original story and memorable characters. There is a ghost that wasn't the best of gamblers in life (swam the Mississippi w/extra baggage attached to his feet), an acerbic white war mage sworn to serve/protect Cassie Palmer (now the Pythia, chief seer, of the world), vampires, a love spell/curse, court intrigue - you name it. I highly recommend this book and the whole series.

The Silver Circle is stunned that untrained magic practitioner and vampire crime chief protégé Cassandra Palmer has been named Pythia, the chief seer as they expected one of their own to be honored as such. This has always happened for the past few millenniums. Cassandra knows she must become the one due to the domino chaos effect in which a chain of disasters pretty much left her the last one standing. --- However to perform her new duties responsibly she has to rid herself of a minor problem. Cassie and sizzling hunk Mircea the master vampire are magically bound to one another both find this arrangement abhorrent as it crimps their lifestyles. Research leads Cassie to conclude that the only way to survive breaking the link is through an incantation found in the long lost spell-book Codex Merlini. She decides to search the past for this ancient tome not understanding when she starts on her quest why the Codex Merlini vanished but she will learn soon the hard way that possession places the world in danger from the evil she might inadvertently release as an unintended consequence. --- The third entertaining Cassie Palmer dark fantasy (see TOUCH THE DARK and CLAIMED BY SHADOW) focuses on Newton's Third Law of Physics that ¿for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction¿. Fans will appreciate Cassie¿s escapades as she tries to end her magical tie to Mircea (though she would not mind a hickey or three from him) leading to potential pandemic peril. Sub-genre fans who have not read Cassie¿s sags should take a chance as these are well written horror-fantasy tales. --- Harriet Klausner

I read the Dory/Dorina series first and love it- But in the series the heroine just spends too many pages responding to events and suceeding only luck-I really wanted to enjoy the series but just didnt

This is an awesome read. I could not put the book down once I started. Cassie is my hero. I really enjoyed the story. Kudos to Karen Chance. I guess I will need to search out more of her.

I loved every little bit about this book. I was eagerly looking forward to it, and I ran out to get it the day it came out. I read it in a day, and for Cassie Palmer fans this book answered questions, raised more, and makes me wish I could move forward in time just to read the next book!

Karen Chance has done it again! I have been haunting my local bookstores for weeks looking for this book 'the release date kept changing in my area' and I was not disappointed in my wait. Cassie is a strong character who succeeds even when she doesn't think she is going to and who drags the reader along for a thrilling ride that keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat until the last page. 'Although I will admit to figuring out a couple of things before she did!' I was very pleased to see the return of Pritkin and loved finding out so much more about him 'and no I won't say anything else, because you need to go buy this book'. I was a little worried about becoming confused during all the time jumping, but Ms. Chance handled it with aplomb and I never lost track of where Cassie was or who she was with. And I loved how she handled it a few times when Cassie jumped herself and someone else back in time--instead of telling us with a header when they were, she had the characters tell us in dialog. I also loved the way the action started right away from the beginning of the book and barely slowed down. All in all...I hope this series continues because I am looking forward to reading many more adventures with Cassie, Pritkin, and Mircea.

I waited (impatiently) for this to come out, and can only say I LOVED IT! Cassie really grows here, shouldering the massive responsibity of her new title, and becoming the strong, take-charge, assertive woman we all knew she could be. Her character growth was one of the best things about the book to me, but there was so much else to love: Pritkin's character, who was never my favorite, suddenly becomes fascinating, with a couple of major revelations I really didn't see coming. Mircea's actions in the past books get explained and his background gets some attention, plus the scenes between he and Cassie were amazing. All the supporting characters I have grown to love--like Billy Joe, the Graeae, Francoise, Marlowe, etc. were back and better than ever. The action was, as always, heart-pacingly fast, but I thought the pacing was better here. Cassie gets some actual down time occasionally. In all, a wonderful, thoroughly satisfying read. I can't wait for the next book, to see how Ms. Chance manages to top this!

I read the first two books, and fell in love with story. I could not put this book down as soon as I start reading it. I throughly enjoyed reading and learning more of Cassie's life and adventure.
