Cassie's back and I've been waiting impatiently. There is just something about this series that really works for me. I love the characters, I enjoy the dialogue, the descriptions are great and the historical detail is interesting, but I think the main thing for me is that the books are fun in genre that can take itself far too seriously.

Anyway on with the review, which is quite tough to write without giving important stuff away - a lot happens in this book!

'Embrace the Night' opens with Cassie in Paris with John Pritkin, the renegade war mage and on the trail of the Codex Merlini. She needs Merlin's spellbook to lift the geas which binds her (twice over) to Mircea the vampire and which is becoming more destructive. She also needs to fulfil her promise to the Fey King to recover the book.

As always this turns out to be a far from straightforward task. Cassie finds herself zipping backwards and forwards in the timeline, meeting earlier versions of Mircea and Pritkin, and causing chaos. There are some major revelations and betrayals along the way.

Cassie has definitely grown during the books. She is much more in control in this one. Deciding what needs to be done and doing it, but she's still really likeable. She won't leave Pritkin to die at the start of the book when they get trapped in the catacombs and rescues a group of children with mixed magical gifts.

I loved the idea of Cassie being forced to endure Pritkin as her personal trainer and him forcing her to go jogging and to learn to sword fight.

It'll be interesting to see where Cassie goes next - trusting people remains a big issue for her.

Then there's Pritkin. I love, love, love this character (and not just because he can speak Welsh!

I love the Cassandra Palmer Series. After waiting impatiently for this book to be released, I found myself unable to put it down, just like its two predecessors. Again, I find myself transfixed by these books following the lives of a range of intriguing characters and trying to keep up with the the complicated love life of a heroine who seems to fall head first into some very interesting situations, not to mention the laps of several male characters. Anyway if you liked the previous books, you should enjoy the latest instalment!

The 3rd (final?) book in the Cassie Palmer series from Karen Chance.

Cassandra thought she'd just been in the wrong place at the wrong time...turns out tho, that her being made Pythia was actually the culmination of some truly long-range planning. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and was waiting anxiously for this one. I enjoyed the book and must give kudos to the author for weaving a complex tale. She did a great job of weaving together the threads that had been cast in the first two books. I was breathless when I finished.

Cassie, as Pythia, can travel through time. Unfortunately, she never got any training and if there was a manual...well, let's just say that apparently nobody wants her to have one. Instead, it seems that all the people she meets just want her to trust them to tell her what she needs to do. The problem with that is she's not sure who, if anyone, she can trust. Cassie is involved with vampires, demons, faeries, talking skulls, magic books...well, the list is really endless.

But this is not a mindless tale of love. Everything is not laid out plainly--the intricacies of actions taken while traveling back in time are brought home in this final book. I can't say much else without giving away too much. I will say that I'm not sorry I read these three books and I hope the author will give us future glimpses into Cassie's world

cassie is trying to save mircea, who is being driven mad by the spell that connects the two of them, and her nemesis pritkin the war mage is hiding a secret. the end was an intricately woven explanation of the "geis~spell~timeline" plot, i loved it. it was like spell suduko for the readers brain. yes, i know i am biased because i really enjoy karen chances writing, but this series is getting better book by book.

'Embrace the Night' definitely leaves the reader wanting more! It's also hands down the best book of the series so far.

Chance focuses much more on Pritkin than before, in that one of numerous questions shrouding his character is answered. I was happy about this because he's my favourite and I get giddy anytime he comes on page... and his character happens to be fascinating no matter what he's doing. I also have to admit I was really surprised at some of the plot twists as I usually see most things coming but not this time! Pritkin as a character is a little more relaxed here but he's still himself, brave, blunt and also proves that he's still ten times smarter than all the other characters put together. For someone so perpetually grumpy he's very noble. Cassie also grows a lot during this installment as she finally stops running and deals with the mess she's in, she also uses her wits to solve some of her problems rather than relying upon other means. Another theme is Cassie learning to trust those around her and to accept help more willingly.

The dry humour is still very much a defining feature of the story and there's quirkiness around every corner as we learn more about Cassie's world. I thought the attention to detail in this area is what elevates the material making it more real and atmospheric to the reader. The humour also gracefully balances the darker themes that pervade the novel. There's some dark scenes here and there that I found rather unnerving! Some of the plot is a bit convoluted because Chance is filling in the blanks left from the other books but also raising new questions and moving the current arc forward. This meant I had to go back and reread some of the heavier exposition to make sure I understood it! It made my eyes cross a bit.
