Blurb: You’d think that being chief seer for the supernatural world would come with a few perks. But as Cassie Palmer has learned, being Pythia doesn’t mean you don’t have to do things the hard way. That’s why she finds herself on a rescue mission skipping through time—even though she doesn’t entirely understand her dimension-bending new power.
Rescuing her friend John Pritkin should have been an in-and-out kind of deal, but with the near-immortal mage’s soul lost in time, Cassie has to hunt for it through the ages—with Pritkin’s demon dad in tow. He’s the only one who can reverse Pritkin’s curse, but with the guardians of the timeline dead set on stopping anyone from mucking about, Cassie will have to figure out how to get her friend back without ruffling too many feathers—or causing a world-ending paradox or two….
Thoughts: I have been waiting, and waiting….and waiting for this book to come out. Things were getting interesting with Pritkin…and what is going on with Mircea? I was expecting some answers in this one….but I have to say, if you are like me?…..it only muddies the waters even more.
For me, this one started off really slow. I mean, so slow that I actually became tempted a time or two to call it quits. However, thinking back on how much I love this series…and the fact that I have yet to read a book by Karen Chance that I don’t like….gave me the incentive to keep reading. It took awhile for it to really kick into gear for me. But once it did? Wow, talk about enthralled with the book. The second half of the book, I literally flew through the pages. And now? Now, I am right back on pins and needles waiting for some answers! Argh! However, this one had a bunch of moments between Cassie and Pritkin. It left me wondering how that will impact the present and/or future of the story? Wow…I just can’t wait to read more!
If you haven’t read this series, it is definitely not the book to start with….but I can recommend beginning the series and catching up on the workings of Cassie Palmer.
