From the New York Times bestselling author of Tempt the Stars comes the latest in the series that's "well worth getting hooked on"(Fresh Fiction). You’d think that being chief seer for the supernatural world would come with a few perks. But as Cassie Palmer has learned, being Pythia doesn’t mean you don’t have to do things the hard way. That’s why she finds herself on a rescue mission skipping through time—even though she doesn’t entirely understand her dimension-bending new power. Rescuing her friend John Pritkin should have been an in-and-out kind of deal, but with the near-immortal mage’s soul lost in time, Cassie has to hunt for it through the ages—with Pritkin’s demon dad in tow. He’s the only one who can reverse Pritkin’s curse, but with the guardians of the timeline dead set on stopping anyone from mucking about, Cassie will have to figure out how to get her friend back without ruffling too many feathers—or causing a world-ending paradox or two....From the Paperback edition.

I can’t believe it took me so long to read Reap the Wind by Karen Chance. After devouring earlier books in the series, I became a die hard Cassie Palmer fan. But then, it seemed like it was taking so long for the next book to be released and I got sucked in to other series by other authors. Then Reap the Wind finally came out and for whatever reason, I didn’t buy it back in November 2015. I don’t know what I was thinking, though now I’m almost glad because if I’d read it back in November and then had to wait for Ride the Storm. (as I’m waiting now, despite it being announced that it was coming April 2016 and we are clearly now in June…) I would have been more frustrated than I am now. Why? Because the book is freaking amazing and I need another Pritkin fix! So much happens in Reap the Wind, yet still not enough and dammit what about Pritkin? I have so many questions. There is so much that is left unanswered and the book is over FIVE HUNDRED pages long. That didn’t stop me from reading it in two days, from staying up until 2am because I just couldn’t put the book down.

I became so engrossed in the novel. Cassie has so much on her plate, with her Pythia court, with Mircea, with Jonas and the Circle and Casanova and the Demon council and trying to save Pritkin while dealing with Rosier. It was so much to take in and if I didn’t already love Pritkin to begin with, I would love him even more now. So much happened but at the end of it all, I was still left hanging and it is killing me but in a good way. I wanted to throw the book across the room when I got to the end of it because I needed MORE. Reap the Wind is a must read! The Cassie Palmer series is a must read, and dammit now I’m wondering why the heck I haven’t started on Karen Chance’s Dorina Basarb series because Karen Chance is clearly a must read author!CoffeeAndCharacters-Rating5Stars
