He really does. Curse the Dawn focuses on Cassie Palmer, now the world's chief seer the 'Pythia'. This book sees her endeavouring to gain control of her new powers, handle the thorny politics of her world and stay alive all at once. Compounded by the former are Cassie's attempts to also manage her increasingly complicated love life -- there's Mircea the Master vampire who Cassie is extremely attracted to and smitten with. And then there's John Pritkin, her tortured war mage partner, who Cassie can't help but feel drawn to. With their help hopefully she can stay alive long enough to defeat her enemies. If you're new to these books, seriously, start with the first one: Touch the Dark and read them in linear order. There are a lot of convoluted story elements and complex character dynamics that have built up over the course of the other three books that won't make sense otherwise.

I have no idea how many more books are on the way but this one certainly had a different ambiance; things seemed heightened somewhat plot-wise. Curse the Dawn is much plot focused and broke away somewhat from the contents of the last three books, sort of signifying a new arc in the story. Having said this, there's still one or two scenes that are quieter and exist to explore the characters -- but perhaps, not enough of these.

The book focuses more on Cassie trying to get to grips with her powers and her attempts to get the Silver Circle on her side once and for all. This was about time in my opinion, and I was keen to learn a little more about the Circle. There's some intriguing mythological titbits all round actually -- we learn something of value about that enigmatic Agnes too!

This was another great addition to the Cassie series, there is plenty of action and moments in the latter half of the book where I literally burst out laughing.

Although it would be better if you had read the previous books, if only because they are also well written, I dont think it is 100% essential as she does explain things along the way.

All in all a great read that I didnt want to put down.

I loved this book as I have the previous three in the series. Chance packs so much into these pages, the action, romance, and humour make for a brilliant read. This is an unusual series for me as the books seem to get better as the series progresses where other sequels often don't live up to the original.
Of course, as a fan of Pritkin rather than Mircea (again unusual as I'd always go with the vampire normally!)I was happy to find the focus was much more on Cassie and Pritkin than her and Mircea. Their relationship seems much more natural and the pair together have so many sweet and hilarious moments, I love it!
A brilliant book in an amazing series, highly recommended!

the scene with cassie, the sofa and marco made me chuckle as i read. cassie manages to do a freaky friday with pritkin, which is hysterical. when magic is destroyed in an alleged accident she also finds evidence mircea has a secret love.(readers of karen chances basarab series will realise who that secret person is) cassie evolves a few steps further on her path to pythia, during which she also discovers some uncomfortable facts about her parents. i thoroughly enjoyed this and am looking forward to the next book 'hunt the moon'. i highly recommend this to fans of the paranormal and supernatural genre, and everyone else of course.

This book is absolutely amazing, it has humour, sex, action what more could you want.

cassie palmer is the worlds leading clairvoyant known as the pythia, she has the ability to travel through time and see the future. Cassie's life has never been simple she has several people that would rather see her dead than welcome her as the new pythia, but the power chose her, she doesnt want it. So she has the silver circle after her , who are a group of mages, the black circle , who are at war with the vampire senate, and also a lost "god" known as apollo, who was banished from this earth.

The vampire senate are cassies allies but is this because they want 2 control her power? One of the leading senate members, Mircea, has practically owned cassie since she was a child, and as adults there love affair has grown because of a magical spell known as a geis he had laid on her when she was young to ensure her protection and 2 try 2 make the power of the pythia go 2 her. Mircea tries 2 protect cassie, but does so without her permission. Cassie is unsure if her feelings for mircea are true or are just a fabrication from the geis.

Cassies partner in crime, war mage: john pritkin ex member of the silver circle has pledged himself to cassie, he will help her even if it means giving his life. Pritkin is a very secretive character however I think he is in love with cassie, and they have a very intriguing relationship, in curse the dawn you almost see them make love in order 2 save pritkin the half incubus. However this becomes dangerous as incubus can drain the life force of a person.

So whilst trying 2 deal with her love life cassie also gets kidnapped by a member of the silver circle, wanting revenge for the murder of his son in embrace the night.
