Curse the Dawn - Book Review

Curse the Dawn (A Cassie Palmer Novel) by Karen Chance

What is it about:
Cassie Palmer may be the world’s chief clairvoyant, but that doesn’t mean people have stopped trying to kill her. And now, the self-styled god Apollo, the source of Cassie’s power, is on the warpath—leaving her no choice but to face down her creator once and for all.

What did I think of it:
Living in a country where English books can be found in the foreign language section it's sometimes hard to get hold of the first book in a series and that's why I started this series at book four. And to my surprise I loved it and didn't even get frustrated because I hadn't read the previous books! I could tell a lot of things had happened before this book, but not in a way that I felt I missed out on understanding things in this book. Chance's writing style is very pleasant and funny at times and Cassie is a cool character although I must confess Pritkin (a war mage) and Mircea (a vampire) were my favouites. There was non stop action for most part of the book and it was well written and cool action at that! I can tell you this book got me hooked on this series and I hope to get hold of the first three books soon.

Why should you read it:
It's fast paced, hang on for the wild ride Urban Fantasy!

I love this series! I've got no idea how you read this without having read the first three... but good job! lol
I love Cassie - she's one of my favorite heroines. And I love her and Mircea together!

Maybe I should read it just to study how to make a series accessible.
