A recent legacy made Cassandra Palmer heir to the title of Pythia, the world's chief clairvoyant. It's a position that usually comes with years of training, but Cassie's circumstances are a little...unusual. Now she's stuck with a whopping amount of power that every vamp, fey, and mage in town wants to either monopolize or eradicate--and that she herself doesn't dare use. What's more, she's just discovered that a certain arrogant master vampire has a geis on her--a magical claim that warns off any would-be suitors, and might also explain the rather intense attraction between them. But Cassie has had it with being jerked around, and anyone who tries it from now on is going to find out that she makes a very bad enemy.… (mer)

Another amazing story by Karen. This second book in the series is a fantastic read, full of magic, mystery, amazing characters, great twists and turns, adventure, excitement and a whole host of other things. I love how well Karen has laid out this world for the readers, as it is so realistic you can actually imagine you are there. This exciting second instalment in the series gives you exiting new developments and leaves you hungering for more. A must read if you enjoy this genre. ( )

"4 out of 5 stars, I'm finding that this series is addicting as soon as I put one book down I had to read the next one, especially with all of the cliffhangers that end the books. This one..."

In book 2 we find Cassie in Hell. Wait, my mistake. She’s at an incubus staffed bar in Dante’s Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas — decorated to look like Hell — surrounded by the 3 Graeae sisters. With war mages coming at her from every direction the Graeae provide the perfect distraction for her to do what she does best...run. Because Cassie doesn’t have time to be killed by the people who are supposed to be protecting her. No, she has Tony, the heinous vampire who raised her, and Myra, the murderous rival for the Pythian power, to catch. Only they’re hiding out in Faery, an extremely dangerous place. She also has the little problem — ok, major problem — of the Pythian power pulling her back in time through the centuries to fix who knows what!

And this is where Cassie proves how smart she is. With her eyes wide open to all the possibilities, she teams up with Pritkin and his retired war mage buddy Mac. Sure they might kill her or turn her over to the Silver Circle. But the way the Circle is after her that may happen anyway. And who else is she gonna trust, the Senate (vampires)???

I love Mac. He is a fabulous character. He believes in Cassie when no one else does, even herself. He is also a magical tattoo artist which is pretty dang cool. We also get to re-meet some minor characters from book 1 while in Faery and Cassie has more problems added to her to-do list. That list is getting pretty long!

What I love about Ms Chance is that every piece of information has a purpose. It’s an Easter egg for later in the book or later in the series. The tiniest details come back around and prove important. Fabulous, intricate writing. And across two series with one timeline!!

If you haven’t read the Cassie Palmer and/or Dorina Basarab books you must start now!

TW: rape scene (spoiler alert, Cassie saves herself in the nick of time but the scene gets close enough to be traumatic. It is only a few paragraphs and easily skippable without losing important story pieces. Once the roots start ripping off her shorts jump forward 12 paragraphs to avoid.) ( )

This book is a fantastic follow on to the fabulous plot and cast of characters found in Touch The Dark. Again Cassie’s unique brand of terrified courage in the face of total chaos provides the backdrop to some of the most intense inter-character relationships I’ve ever seen on paper. Hot and steamy, while totally true, doesn’t begin to cover the depth and detail of emotion packed into every exchange. Another masterpiece to add to this authors accomplishments to date. The complicated relationship between Cassie and John Pritkin has brought me loyally back to this series more times than I can remember, and each time I crack the cover it’s just as good as the first time I picked it up nearly a decade ago.

Cassie is hiding out in Vegas. She's on the run from any goons Tony sends as well as a wayward acolyte Myra. She's keeping her things in a skating rink locker and stealing outrageous outfits from casino locker rooms to interrogate Casanova. He used to be Tony's second in command and he might know how to get to him in Faerie. She has to get to Tony before he gets to her. She wants to take him down and she wants the paper weight that currently traps Cassie's father's ghost. She also does not want to be Pythia.

Then cruel, annoying Pritkin enters the scene. They may make it to Faerie together, but will they make it in one piece?

Claimed by Shadow is all around great. The warmages get a front seat in this novel rather than the vampires. We learn more about the magic within this world by following Pritkin around through the backhalf of the novel. We also get more action scenes, and Chance knows how to write a riveting action scene. Cassie speaks more in this one, I suspect because she's out of the clutches of the vampires. She has more agency all around when she's away from them. In fact, one of the main problems, the geis enchantment placed on Cassie, compounds the vampires' rampant disregard for her agency.

I love Claimed by Shadow. I hope you love it too. ( )
