I love Cassie Palmer, she is such a riot! Although I've waited for a long time for every book in the series to come out, it was so worth it.
The book is constant non-stop action. Poor Cassie despite being surrounded by her vampire guards is getting assassination attempts every day. Possessions, dragons and demigods, they are all after her.
She also jumps through time frames after her mother to save her, because Cassie's enemies try to end her as well.
We see plenty of beautiful, slash-boom-bang battles. Mircea and Pritkin take turns fighting side to side with Cassie for their lives. Mircea, Pritkin! *fans herself* There are some extremely scorching scenes with those two in the book. I honestly can't choose who I prefer, they are both fantastic men :)
Mircea and Cassie's relationship take step further, and he at last understands that he can't smother her with his care anymore. He has to trust her to make her own decisions and take her own risks. Pritkin also tells her more about his past.
The ending is AWESOME. Not with a whimper but with a bang. It opens and enormous amount of possibilities for Cassie, and I can't wait to read about them.
