To conclude, I find nothing to recommend this book. The getup, sort of mad scientist meets Rambo, would have made me smile, except that I believe in showing respect for someone carrying that much hardware. Rereading it now I kind of have bigger expectations. They had given chase, finally found her, and now she had to be on the run again. The romance need to be explored further. I feel the need to give this series a shot, so we'll see how the sequel goes, I guess, even if it isn't terribly high up the list.
Pritkin seems to be just like him with his hypocrisy and temper tantrums. The main character, Cassie Palmer, is charismatic, snarky and just so much fun to read. But a particular master vampire did not request what Cassie desired before placing a lay claim on her. But after being forcibly changed into a vampire and treated as a slave for four hundred years, he wasn't feeling too chummy. Realmente me ha gustado, y quizás más de las tres estrellas que le pongo, pero también es cierto que ha habido momentos en los que me he cansado de las eternas preguntas de nuestra protagonista. A recipe that most fantasy lovers would drool over.
He also reminds me of Richard with his ignorance and preaching, especially about how vampires are monsters, while he himself uses magic to maim and kill. Nothings seems to phase her - not hairy satyrs, blood sucking vampires or aggressive war mages determined to end her at all costs. Through the whole book, Cassie is either freaking out unnecessarily, or getting angry over benign situations. The characters all had potential but were introduced suddenly with very little background explanation until of course the action scenes and as a result felt very one dimensional. First you decide I'm a demon because of a power I didn't ask for and don't even understand. This series have many elements that make it an entertaining and interesting read.
Despite my issues with the series, all and all, these books are ok, stimulating and intriguing. Cassandra Palmer recently defeated a god, which you'd think would buy a girl a little time off. So she goes on the run. That stuck Cassie with a lot of power she doesn't know how to use and a metric ton of new enemies. And after 5 books, it has become annoying to always be left wanting. So w If you've forgotten what the word 'torture' means please be my guest and start this book.
I also would've liked a little more girl interaction because so far it's mainly a boys club and Cassie. So it's safe to say that I do not recommend this book to anyone. The spell that binds them can only be broken with an incantation found in the Codex Merlini, an ancient grimoire. I am waiting for the next in the series - number 7. And she has a new boyfriend who would be perfect if he wasn't possessed by an ancient demon. Well, here's some of the highlights: - Mages are really more like mad scientists in their fascination with vials. As if that wasn't a big enough turn off the 'bedroom' scene is filled with stops and starts while the author bombards us with a lot of badly timed background information.
Cassie Palmer, chief seer of the supernatural world, faces her biggest challenge yet--her own allies! I think that was about the time I gave up on logic and just decided to go with the flow. No hate, everyone has its opinion. Usually, I'm turned off by non-stop action books. What is this, a Hogwarts classroom? There were other things I couldn't identify, including a row of cork-topped bottles along the front of the belt. I generally like to think that I'm a nice person. She whines like there's no tomorrow.
I held off this book for so long because of all of the mixed reviews out there. Finally, I learned that I must be getting old. Plus, this is yet another thing that overuses as well. She got away from him and has been living her life in hiding, until now. The Vampire Senate does help Cassie in her own position; however their protection includes a price which is a connection with the attractive master vampire Mircea, who stated Cassie as his very own. As a hypothetical example, say you accidentally hit someone with your car and kill them.
Claimed by Shadow Embrace the Night Curse the Dawn I love these books. I don't even regret that I skimmed large parts of it. My main problem is that I've already read the series, and Touch the Dark is so similar that you almost have to wonder why she wasn't called out on plagiarism. The sexual tension is fantastic in the second half of the book and there are two really hot scenes that give us some payoff as well. What frustrates me so much is that I really feel that there is quite a bit of potential here, but it really was wasted on a book filled with info dump. Page Turner: I guess Series Cont. After getting rid of Tony's goons, with a help from a friend, she ends up at the Senate.
