If you want a exciting book with all sorts of magic and magical beings this is the book for you. It moves quickly and the main character, Cassandra Palmer, if rather interesting. Who doesn’t love a book with witches, war mages, vampires, werewolves, Satyrs, faeries, were-rats and a few other supernatural creatures.
The book opens with Cassandra receiving what looks to be a death threat from the Vampire she escaped three years ago. Tony the vampire killed her parents and kept her because of her abilities. Cassandra amazing abilities to see the future and communicate with ghosts gets her into a heap of trouble.
Cassandra does not know much about her family or her own powers, as she is confronted with near death she learns just how much she doesn’t know about herself. The Vampire Senate has sent a representative to protect her from Tony’s attack. Now she if faced with joining forces with the Senate or going on the run again. Siding with the vampire senate as bad as being on her own because she is considered a possession to them.
I really liked Cassandra from the first page to the last. Her personality was rather closed like anyone who had been on the run for three years. She didn’t trust anyone but she wasn’t nasty, just closed off. I thought Chance did a nice job developing a character that would win over her readers.
Many novels like this either have a strong, overly confident character or quite the opposite. I didn’t see any of that in this novel Cassandra was laid back and took on each hit as it came.
I really liked this book and I am going to have to give the book five stars. I am sure it is not going to be a classic but I rate on how much I enjoy reading the books.
