Embrace the Night - Karen Chance

Embrace the Night
by Karen Chance

Blurb on the back of the Book:

Recently named the world’s chief clairvoyant, Cassandra Palmer still has a thorn in her side. As long as Cassie and a certain master vampire—the sizzling-hot Mircea—are magically bound to each other, her life will never be her own …

The spell that binds them can only be broken with an incantation found in the Codex Merlini, an ancient grimoire. The Codex’s location has been lost in the present day, so Cassie will have to seek it out in the only place it can still be found—the past.

But Cassie soon realizes the Codex has been lost for a reason. The book is rumored to contain some seriously dangerous spells, and retrieving it may help Cassie to deal with Mircea, but it could also endanger the world…

Third in the Cassie Palmer Series, Embrace the Night quite literally starts off with a bang! Or you could say several bangs as Cassie Palmer searches for the world's most dangerous grimoire, the Codex Merlini, with war mages hot on her trail, and let's just say that they pack a lot of ammunition.

Cassie, a clairvoyant that can communicate with the spirits, was just recently given the title of the world's chief clairvoyant, the Pythia, whether she was ready or not. And because she wasn't trained she knows almost absolutely nothing about her newly gained powers and how to control them.

Previously, she discovered that she was magically linked to the extremely seductive master vampire, Mircea, but due to a mishap while taking a trip back in time, let's just say that it backfired, and well now for as long as they are bound, she may never be free again. To fight it would be to intensify it with a burning desire that will eventually push them off the ledge, so to speak, and let's just say that if the bond is not completed, the pain may drive them mad. The secret to reversing the spell that bound them lies in the lost grimoire, the Codex Merlini and Cassie must find it before Mircea becomes incapacitated.

With a bounty on her head, she searches quite restlessly and comes to realize why the Codex is missing and why it should stay missing, but without it how will she reverse the bond?

A must read with lots of unexpected plot twists and quite the unexpected ending. Cassie is one tough chic. And well, Pritkin, the war mage who opts to help her out is pretty bad ass. Mircea, the master vampire Senate member is quite the devil himself. I absolutely love all the characters of the series! The book consists of a world intertwined with vampires, mages, the dark fey, ghosts, spirits, demons, god like beings and more.

Don't forget to check out the books preceding Embrace the Night in the Cassie Palmer series: Touch the Dark, Claimed by Shadow.

Up next in the series is: Curse the Dawn.
