About Karen Chance

Growing up in Orlando Florida, the bestselling novelist has lived in several countries before returning to Florida and settling in DeLand.  With books translated into several languages and a nomination for Readers Choice for best Urban Fantasy Novel in 2008 she is a force to be reckoned with.  A bit like her characters!

My Comments

I was introduced to these books by a friend and I’m glad I heeded her advice.  Karen Chance creates an often dizzying world of vampires, clairvoyants, mages and the ultimate headspin of time travel.  Her main character Cassandra Palmer is a gutsy heroine that got dropped in the deep end by becoming the world’s chief clairvoyant with no formal training or preparation.  The charm of the books is how she deals with it and interacts with those around her, even those who would see her dead.  My favourite secondary characters have to be Pritkin, the mad mage and Mircea, one hot vampire, both who have a vested interest in her and seeing her stay alive.  The books are well written, the stories engaging and above all, you care about what happens to the characters.  Well worth reading.

  1. Karen Chance’s Cassandra Palmer series has to be my second favourite (after Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files) fantasy series. I have grown attached to Both Cassie and Mircea and totally in love with Pritkin the crazy mage, not to mention some of the secondary characters introduced along the way. Highly recommend this series to anyone with a love of a good book.
