I think I suffered from the most intense case of book crack addiction ever.
Every night I would read and read, I would look at the clock (creeping towards 1 am then 2 am) and keep telling myself "just one more chapter then I'll go to bed" And of course one more chapter turned into three of four.
It is great to be able to jump into a series with several books already available. The only bad part is that once you finish that final (available) book you go into serious withdrawals.
I've been completely immersed in this series and now it's back to reality with no more Cassie, Mircea or Pritkin. No more Marco, who I have come to appreciate as well. I need a Cassie/Mircea/Pritkin fix already.
When is the next book coming out?
This series is fabulous. Cassie is fantastic as the accidental heroine. She's not a vicious bad ass but she's kick ass in her own way and she really comes into her own as the series progresses. In book 5, Hunt the Moon- wow you'll never guess what happens - so much is finally revealed it's awesome.
But I get ahead of myself.
The Cassie Palmer series has everything yo could ant in a good urban fantasy series- those pesky family skeletons in the closet- all those secrets that add up to making the heroine the power freak of nature and her life the mess that it is.
Then there's all the mysteries surrounding other characters- who and what they really are, how it all plays into making Cassie's life "interesting".
And of course there's romance, even a bit of a love triangle- and it's so hard to choose a side with this one because both men are smokin hot and interesting in their own unique ways. And thanks to the love triangle we get plenty of emotion and several sexy hot scenes that smolder.
The adrenaline junkies will enjoy the numerous action scenes (there's a lot because someone is always trying to kill Cassie)- and history and mythology buffs will get a taste of mythical creatures, gods and goddesses coming to life in these books.
I honestly couldn't ask for more. Vampires, mages, witches, and mythical creatures- combined with action, romance and a tad but of mystery and mayhem.
Yeah it's a fabulous series not to be missed. I just can't believe it took me this long to read these books- but now that I have I am seriously addicted.
Wow- every book just gets better. I read them faster and faster- each book has more drama and more intensity than the previous one.
This is the book where mythology really starts having a powerful focus because Cassie has an enraged God on her tail and he wants to use her to come back to earth.
