First Review EVAR! Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance!
Cassandra Palmer recently defeated a god, which you'd think would buy a girl a little time off. But it doesn't work that way when your job description is Pythia-the world's chief clairvoyant. Cassie is busier than ever, trying to learn about her power, preparing for her upcoming coronation, and figuring out her relationship with the enigmatic sexy master vampire, Mircea.
But someone doesn't want Cassie to become Pythia, and is willing to go to any lengths to make sure the coronation ceremony never happens- including attacking her mother before Cassie is even born.
Alright, got this the day it came out. Read it before the day was over. Total AWESOMSAUCE! Especially after waiting what seemed to be forever for the next Cassie book. If you haven't read the series it starts with Touch the Dark.
Hunt the Moon started off in typical Karen Chance style, jumping head first right into the story. Cassandra Palmer, world class seer and soon to be crowned Pythia. Known clutz and self proclaimed screw up, Cassie has quite the battle coming to terms with her new position that is still pulling her unwillingly along the timeline. As always with Karen Chance, you never know what to expect with her characters. Mircea and Cassie's "relationship" has been a bumpy road, with never knowing where she stands and the long lasting tension with Pritkin is finally, sort of, explained. Along with total mishaps and adventures with the amazing Palmer Universe, Hunt the Moon will leave you drooling for more Mircea, or Pritkin, I can never decide which. The cliff hanger at the end is tear jerking, yes, cliff hanger, they are the bane of my existence. If I explain more I will include too many spoilers, and I really, really hate spoilers!
