Cassie Palmer can see the future, talk to ghosts, and travel through time—but nothing’s prepared her for this.

Ever since being stuck with the job of pythia, the chief seer of the supernatural world, Cassie Palmer has been playing catch up. Catch up to the lifetime's worth of training she missed being raised by a psychotic vampire instead of at the fabled pythian court. Catch up to the powerful, and sometimes seductive, forces trying to mold her to their will. It's been a trial by fire that has left her more than a little burned.

But now she realizes that all that was the just the warm up for the real race. Ancient forces that once terrorized the world are trying to return, and Cassie is the only one who can stop them...


Holy Freaking Yes! I cannot tell you how long I have been waiting to read Ride the Storm. It feels like it has been eons when realistically its been two years but two years is a hell of a long time when you’re dying to see what happens next and if Pritkin makes it because lets be honest, we all love Pritkin! He’s been a favorite character of mine since book 2 and I love that war mage more and more which each new installment.

Ride the Storm was worth the wait! (But please don’t make us wait that long again!) When I got my hands on an ARC I was chomping at the bit to devour it and had to force myself to slow down so I didn’t read it all in one day. Cassie goes through hell (literally) trying to go back in time to save Pritkin’s soul while still dealing with crisis’ in the present. She had to face off against other Pythia’s trying to “protect the timeline” from Cassie no less and their unwillingness to listen to reason for even a second as she all but killed her self to find Pritkin in time.

Her realization of Mircea’s true desires and intentions was somewhat heartbreaking but I’ve been team Pritkin before the possibility of Cassie and Pritkin was even a thing so I was also excited because it makes me think that maybe, just maybe, I will finally see a Cassie and Pritkin happily ever after. A girl can hope, right?

All in all, Ride the Storm was epic. I have no complaints other than I want MORE and I pray we don’t have to wait 2 more years to get it! Go preorder your copy of Ride the Storm so you don’t forget about it. It’s releasing August 1st 2017 and you won’t want to miss it!
