Favorite line: “Mircea kissed like he wanted live in my skin, slow and thorough, with teeth and tongue, like he never ever wanted to stop.” (p. 32) I was sent a review copy.
Apollo wants Cassie Palmer dead. Because she is the world’s top clairvoyant, the Pythia, and unpredictable/uncontrollable, many magical beings want her removed, but Apollo is at the top of the list. In this world demotion means death. With the Vampire Senate backing her claim to the office of Pythia, and Mircea (a master vampire) claiming her, Cassie is having a hard time appearing neutral. And neutral is exactly what the Pythia must always be.
It’s in her best interest for the magical beings to accept her, because ‘A’ who wants people always trying to kill you. And ‘B’ the Silver Circle (good mages) were able to banish Apollo the last time he was on Earth and appear to be her only hope of survival.
Things never go smooth with Cassie, so it’s a good thing she has Mircea and her partner Pritkin the war mage, on her side.
I love, love, love this book. From my favorite line to a life CHANGING (hint, hint) experience, I enjoyed myself. I laughed out loud several times as Ms. Chance made unrealistic experiences realistic. With lovable characters and great pacing, Curse the Dawn , book four in the Cassie Palmer series, is the best book in the series. Don’t get me wrong, all the books were good, but Curse the Dawn surpasses them. It has it all: mystery, sex, romance, mixed emotions and vampires, of course.
Book three, Embrace the Night, has everything you need to understand what is going on in this book. This is a series so don’t even try to jump in here, it won’t make sense. Go back to book one and start the series ’cause this is a book worth reading. It will be released for sale April 7.
