Claimed by Shadow

Being the heir to the Pythia, the world’s chief clairvoyant, Cassandra feels she has way too much on her plate. The amount of power the position holds would make her attractive to all sorts of factions who would want to bend her to their own devices and she is sick of being used. Struggling to find someone else to be the heir while trying to unsnare herself from the master vampire who placed a geis on her, can she prevent her life from becoming one big bad day.

I was a little surprised at the direction this sequel took, but not unpleasantly. It delved more into the background of the characters, the history of the ‘world’, and also a lot more about the mysterious Pythia. It was as engaging and fast paced as the first, still a little confusing as it flipped around, but again the story didn’t suffer too much as a result. The Time travel seemed a little contrived but it did end up making a lot of sense. As in the first book, there wasn’t a lot of sex but the build up, anticipation and heat were very well done.

I'm a complete bookaholic and never want a cure... more shelf space maybe. The only things I love more than reading is my husband and my cats!

  1. Great review, having read this book I agree that the time travelling did get a bit confusing in places but didnt detract from my enjoyment of the book. I found myself slowly falling for a certain crazy war mage as this book progressed and having read the next two books I only love him more and more…although I do like Mircea as well.

    Can’t wait for the next installment, you need to catch up 🙂
