Karen Chance - Curse the dawn

Centuries ago when the Gods were banished from Earth, those who used magic banded together to create the Silver Circle. Apollo was the one who keeps in touch with the mages through the Pythians, but the Silver Circle has always managed kept the head Pythian under their control, but not with the new Pythia. They fear if Cassie refuses to accept her role and their control, Apollo would have her on his site in no time.

Cassandra “Cassie” Palmer a powerful clairvoyant has to accept her new role as the new Pythia, a chief seer. But Cassie doesn’t really know how to do that job, because there is no one there to help with her training. And the large bounty on her head, placed by the Silver Circle isn’t helping either. It’s only a matter of time before the Black Circle find a way to let Apollo return to Earth and rule once again.

Cassie’s lover, master vampire senator Mircea Basarab and her friend John Pritkin will do anything in their power to protect her, but don’t really understand her need to do it herself.

Curse the dawn by Karen Chance is the fourth novel in The Cassandra Palmer series and once again a fabulous novel. Whenever I read a book in this series, it lures me right into that world and makes me forget all about my own. I wasn’t able to put the book down, before I finished it.

Cassie Palmer is the main character in this series and she is getting stronger by the book. She’s already powerful as a clairvoyant and now with her Pythia powers, she is a catch. Everyone around her seems to have an urge to control her, so the Silver Circle and the Black Circle put large bounties on her heard to force her to choose a side, but Cassie wouldn’t be Cassie is she did the opposite and fights her own battles.

John Pritkin and Mircea Basarab are two of my favorite secondary characters, both having their own way to protect Cassie from all the mages, vamps and other creatures, who wants something from her.

This is one of those series you have to keep on auto buy; I’m totally hooked on this series. Karen Chance has a way to mix all those magical creatures, vamps and now some Gods into a world you don’t want to leave until you’ve found what you’ve been looking for. I’m curious to see what she has in store for them in the next novel.
