From the New York Times bestselling author of Tempt the Stars comes the latest in the series that's "well worth getting hooked on"(Fresh Fiction).

You’d think that being chief seer for the supernatural world would come with a few perks. But as Cassie Palmer has learned, being Pythia doesn’t mean you don’t have to do things the hard way. That’s why she finds herself on a rescue mission skipping through time—even though she doesn’t entirely understand her dimension-bending new power.

Rescuing her friend John Pritkin should have been an in-and-out kind of deal, but with the near-immortal mage’s soul lost in time, Cassie has to hunt for it through the ages—with Pritkin’s demon dad in tow. He’s the only one who can reverse Pritkin’s curse, but with the guardians of the timeline dead set on stopping anyone from mucking about, Cassie will have to figure out how to get her friend back without ruffling too many feathers—or causing a world-ending paradox or two....

ASIDE: For those of you wondering at the so-called cliffhanger, please read this: On a separate note, reviews should be about the quality of the books and their content, not about things like the length of time between books, the cost of the books, and what the book covers look like, etc---most of which are beyond the authors' control. I won’t rehash the storyline, as others have already done so more than adequately. Instead, I’ll just add that in "Reap the Wind," Cassie proceeds apace with growing into her own person and strength as the Pythia. Although Pritkin ‘shipers will find much to like, I think Mircea ‘shipers don’t have to lose hope just yet. And, although there will be readers who are not entirely satisfied with the pace of the book and where it ends, I think everything is moving along as it should and that the “cutoff” is where it needs to be (given the fact the book *had* to be broken up, the ending was at a great spot). This journey is well worth traveling. Several strands of the overarching plotline are beginning to come together and, I feel, tie the Cassandra Palmer and Dory Basarab series’ even closer. I, for one, am eagerly anticipating “Ride the Storm” and what happens at a certain court in the distant past. From the advent of "Touch the Dark" to the current "Reap the Wind," Karen Chance has not let up on the excellent quality of her storytelling, continuing unabated to write about complex characters in a relatable but intricate and multilayered world, while twining mythology and legends from multiple cultures and time periods. She weaves complicated plots with a deft hand, interspersing literal laugh-out-loud moments with those of intense emotion, quiet introspection, and fast-paced action. Moreover, Ms Chance is somehow also able to maintain a firm grip on the various timelines within and between books in the Cassie Palmer series, as well as with that of the Dory Basarab series. For me the main thing that sets Cassie apart from many other female protagonists in urban fantasy today is that she is not a near-perfect, near-infallible, super warrior with almost all the answers all the time. Instead, she's someone who, under extremely trying circumstances, is essentially starting from complete ignorance of her new station and role, trying to figure out who she is now and how she can use and control the powers she's unwillingly received---while facing active discouragement and outright obstruction from so-called allies and enemies alike. And yet, despite Cassie's insufficient knowledge of all things Pythia, her almost nonexistent fighting skills, and her lack of ruthlessness, time and again, she comes out of political, social, and physical battles bruised but not beaten---relying primarily on her wits, determination, persistence, and optimism. And she’s slowly but surely gathering advocates and allies on her own merits rather than those based on her powers and office, the vampire world she grew up in, and the war mages’ arena she’s thrust into.

In Reap the Wind, Cassie must team up with some very unlikely and reluctant allies to rescue John from the depths of hell. A crazy curse, sends Cassie time hopping as John's clock runs down. Her hopping doesn’t go unnoticed, leaving her battling quite a few of her predecessors as well as enemies from the past. Lots of fun, humor and quirkiness balances the heart felt emotions and dire circumstances Cassie faces. I flat out love immersing in Cassie Palmer’s world. Chance weaves another marvelously exciting, fast paced story that sucked me deep into this world that I love. I can admit this is a lengthy read, but I devoured every second and didn’t want it to end. Chance truly pulled out all the stops, Reap the Wind does the Cassandra Palmer series proud. I received this ARC copy of Reap the Wind From PENGUIN GROUP Berkley, NAL / Signet Romance, DAW in exchange for a honest review.

This book was absolutely worth the wait. I loved every word. I love how Cassie is growing not only into her powers as pythia but also as a person. This book has lots of twists and turns. I look forward to seeing where Karen Chance take this series. It was neat to see the same series of events from another point of view from her other character Dory.

Well written and basically good enough to be worth reading. But you could basically skip this entire book and still not fall behind in the story line. I am disappointed overall.

I love this series. It is one of only two on-going, must-read-immediately, urban fantasy series for me, one that I wait for all year (or years) long, one that I buy the second the clock hits midnight, the one I stay up half the night to finish. Yes, it feels like a tease, as other reviewers have said. It's a shame that it had to be made from one long book into two shorter books as I'm assuming that would have eliminated this. But I'm hanging in for the strong world building, the enjoyable characters, one of the most compelling slow build romances (with Pritkin, of course), and because I have to see where we end up! Yes, you will feel some frustration but it is worth it.

I loved Reap The Wind so worth the wait! Anxiously waiting for next book to be released.

In Reap the Wind, the clock is ticking on Ares' return. Cassie is aware more than ever that the former Pythia's, Anges', acolytes are causing chaos and making it easier for Ares to slip through the border between their dimensions. Pritkin's, aka Merlin's, soul is slipping further away. Cassie brings Rosier along to save him. As always with a Chance novel, Reap the Wind is packed. Rosier and Cassie's interactions are a delight. They have a spark of hatred for each other that never dims through multiple centuries and miles and miles of Welsh forest. In present day, Rhea is the only remaining alcolyte that knows what she's talking about and willingly helps Cassie be an effective Pythia. Rhea really shines in this novel. The turbulent relationships with Marsden and Mircea get their spotlights. All around, I had so much fun reading Reap the Wind. See you in Ride the Storm!

I so looked forward to this book and was frustrated when the release date was pushed back. I felt thoroughly cheated. I loved the first 6 books in this series but I felt that this one was nothing but a series of never- ending action scenes with no point. Or maybe one point, but a poor one. I thought this book was so bad that even thinking about writing this review hurt so much it took me this long to get around to it (and I bought it as soon as it was released and finished it in a long weekend). But I enjoyed the previous books enough that I'm considering reading the next one hoping it will redeem this one (I hope that made sense).

The worst part of this book is that I have to wait for the next one

If you like the paranormal, action and good story telling you will enjoy this series. Read them from the begining and go in order. There are lots of characters you become invested in. You won't be disappointed.

SO good!!! Too good to put down!!

With a two year gap between Temp the Stars and Reap the Wind, my imagination was allowed to take charge. My book arrived and I was set to prove my predictable story conjuring correct. Guy gets in trouble, girl saves guy, fall in love and get into more trouble. Karen Chance, however, seemed to acknowledge the art of predictability and jerk the wheel 180 degrees, driving full speed into a torrent of multiple story lines, fast action and unexpected outcomes. But can a book grip a reader if too much is going on? Quite frankly, yes. Yes it can. Each story, although separate, joins together in an expert fashion. The cross over of another series written by Karen is introduced that has perked my interests more than a little bit! The characters are told in more detail, allowing the reader to get to know them personally. Especially Cassie. I found myself laughing at the her quick wit, joining in with her frustration and furrowing my brow with sadness. Her desperation is almost too much to bear at one point, making me take a break and putting the kettle on to slow my heart rate. But it's the end of the book that had me on the edge of my seat exclaiming to my husband "it can't end like that! Surely it can't end like that" but of course it can. Do I think about the possible ways the story can continue? Yes. Am I going to read the 8th instalment? Absolutely. Have I made a calendar only going up to April 2016 and stuck it on fridge? I'm not ashamed to say I have! I highly recommend reading this book, but advise you read the first 6 so you truly understand what's happening throughout. I can assure you, you will be as hooked as I am once you have finished it.

Waited and waited for this book and so well worth it! Love the momentum on the Pritkin and acolyte fronts and especially the Cassie/Mircea face-off. Cassie is starting to come into her Pythian chops in this book and I think she is really going to get traction in Ride the Storm - cannot wait for the next one to come out! Spent a lot of time laughing out loud reading this. By no means is this book too long - more like not long enough for me! There are few series I enjoy more than this one and every new installment is a thrill :)

I feel like I've been on a wild roller coaster that finally came to an abrupt stop.. at the top of the highest hill and it's just not going anywhere. Because that was the end. And now I have to sit here and wonder what the heck is happening. And I have to wait till spring before the coaster starts to move again.. and I'm equally ticked off and excited. And that's my review.
