The story begins with Cassie awaiting her coronation as Pythia. Mircea has her under constant guard; Pritkin is inundating her with self-defense training. Obviously, they're taking the threat of an attack very seriously. And they're right. A mysterious force targets Cassie in an assault and no one can understand how it was done. So Pritkin goes on a journey to Faerie to see what information he can dig up.
The only time the book dragged for me was in his absence. And perhaps Mircea fans will disagree, because for 100 pages or so, it's a Mircea-thon. He accompanies Cassie back in time to see her mother. But the plans get turned asunder as Mommy is kidnapped and attacked by dark mages. The rest of the action in the book centers on keeping Cassie's mother alive and figuring out what's behind the malevolent force targeting Cassie, herself.
But to me, all of that is window dressing for the fantastic interpersonal stuff that happens in this book. Cassie still isn't sure where she stands with Mircea and that confusion is compounded by his insistence on inflicting his will upon her. We get little more insight into his feelings for her as the book progresses. But where the story really shines is when the focus is on Cassie and Pritkin. He comes through for her time and time again; he is reliable; he is constant; he is selfless; and the sexual tension between them is Oh-My-God out of this world. Every book, I find myself wondering if this will be the one where Cassie realizes what she means to him --and what he means to her...Read more ›
The triangle between Cassie, Pritkin, and Mircea became much more prevalent in these books. What makes the situation different is that Cassie doesn't quite realize her real feelings for Pritkin, so you don't have the typical angst issues found in most triangles. I am honestly not sure who I am rooting for at this point as both men are good for her in their own way. The chemistry between Mircea and Cassie is incredible and he has always been the only one to give her any stability in her entire life. However, when you take a step back and look at things he technically trapped her into the relationship. Mircea is used to getting his way, and life with him would be a constant battle of wills despite her love for him. He will do something that will turn me off of him, but then turn around and show some vulnerability in the next moment that draws me right back in. Pritkin on the other hand comes with his own mess of troubles due to his heritage and nature. I'm not even sure a relationship could even be possible between them, but if they could make it work it would be more than worth it in the end.Read more ›
The series has had no real plot beyond everyone unhappy that Cassie is Pythia and her spending each book trying to survive assassination attempt after attempt. She survives by luck and the skin of her teeth, and has at least one manic chase through time against enemies who can manipulate time better than she can. And the end result changes little except maybe her manifesting a new form of the Pythia power - that she doesn’t know how she did and can’t replicate. *sigh* I was nearly prepared to drop this series after the constant roller coaster. But once again, the conclusion hooked me back in.
There is a lot to enjoy in the series, despite the frustration. When Chance finally does offer up some revelations or character development, she makes the effort worthwhile. Here, readers finally get an explanation for why The Power chose Cassie; some backstory on Mercea and his motivations; and a little more character development for Cassie. Toward the end, she finally seems to be letting go of the “poor me” whining attitude that has dogged her from the start, and kept her from being a heroine in her own books. Showing some confidence may be the key to Cassie gaining some control over the Pythia power. Plus, Chance has some unique aspects to her worldbuilding that help it stand apart from other urban fantasies. Cassie powers, especially now that they are expanding beyond just shifting through time, are kinda cool with unexpected potential.Read more ›
