The book was full of character development and story building, but I may need to read it again to actually take it in. Exactly what’s to be expected from Karen Chance: a whirlwind of action as Cassie shifts from one time and place to another, creating havoc and mayhem wherever she goes.
This is a big book – even though it’s been cut down – and it covers a lot of ground. Most of the action is set in the past with Cassie trying to rescue Pritkin after the events of the Tempt the Stars – although in the second half of the book there’s some shenanigans with Mircea that somehow didn’t quite seem to fit for me. Not much gets resolved on either of those two matters, however what this book does manage to do is shed more light on the changing role of the Pythia past and present, and Cassie’s place in the supernatural world and I liked that aspect of it very much.
Cassie has been coming into her own for a few books now, and you can really see that development here: she knows what the problem is and is determined to solve it – on her own terms. I think it’s clear this was a bigger book at some point, and I’m disappointed we’re not going to get Ride the Storm in April see Chance’s website for more details , but I do await the next instalment eagerly and warm more to Cassie with each passing book.
One person found this helpful. Frickin’ awesomeness as usual. Really enjoyed this book. So full of adventure, chaos, craziness – you name it, Chance packs it in. There’s a lot of information interwoven throughout the story and plenty of fun with Pritkin, always a plus. There’s new characters and new places to soak up as Cassie shifts all over like a yoyo. This book is more like a build up to the main event, which I assume will take place in the next instalment, than a story with a beginning, middle and end.
A lot is left on a cliffhanger, but it’s so well written and full of sparks that I don’t mind one bit. In fact, bring it on. I love her style of writing! Never disappoints. Read it now. Then go back to the first book and read them all again! Another fantastic instalment in a series that I truly do enjoy more with every book. Perhaps sometimes the chase scenes can go on just a bit too long for my taste, but the humour peppered throughout is more than enough to keep me engrossed.
The protagonist is pretty unique within this genre and i find her a real breath of fresh air. I only wish I had found another urban fantasy series that could compare and i have looked , to keep me occupied between books. EDIT: Btw – if you are viewing the audiobook version – don’t buy it!
The single worst narrator I have ever heard – half the time she sounds like an automaton, the rest of it she sounds like Data an android from Star Trek TNG only faaaaaar more monotone. Some of these books have had pretty dodgy narration but this one really takes the cake. So slow and monotonous like a computer for the most part and with incredibly over-pronounced diction for the rest, I even find the kindle computerised narration less annoying.
Oct 31, Duca rated it it was amazing. I just finished this marvellous book over an hour ago. And even as I sit here and write my fingers are still thrumming with adrenaline. What a ride! I feel the same way I did when I walked out of the cinema after seeing Fury Road for the first time. Not that there was much time to take notes!
I say hyperdrive because, well, you do get a neat little star wars reference. And a whole host of other film references that had a film fan like me giggling into my paperback. In fact the originality of the humour in this series is like crack to me, I just keep coming back for it!
Yes I did. This book should have a subtitle, like — Reap the Wind: Cassie gets real! Cassie finally gets round to some long-needed self-reflecting and it is wonderful. Characters that made a place in my heart forever with this book: Rico, Fred and Rhea. Characters that burrowed their way even deeper into my heart because they were already there : Marco!
My profound and adoring thanks go to Karen Chance herself for sending me a copy after winning one on a competition from her website. I just will not ruin the surprises for you. I really had to talk myself out of being disappointed with this book. Like so many others, my borderline obsession with Pritkin seems to be ruining my reading experience because anything not about him slides on past me with barely any effect. I want him saved and I want something to be sorted between him and Cassie.
Fireworks and happily ever after? Lovey dovey romance and couples clothing? I’m forgetting that the build up is often more exciting than what comes next.

From me to you : These books are insanely difficult to review for my future remembrance while not spoiling the hell out of others. So, I’ve spoiler blocked a lot – maybe too much. But, I figure better to be safe than sorry read: the bitch that ruined it for someone else.

The spoiler in the middle highlights some of Cassie’s challenges in this installment, but not super specific or spoilery, IMO. If she can just catch up to him before it’s too late. Cassie, the She’s on a mission view spoiler [ to save Pritkin hide spoiler ] and she’s trying to keep it hush-hush. That’s easier said than done when she continues to pop into her hotel suite dirty and disheveled only to pop back out again after some food and sleep.
The vampires charged with her care and safety, most especially Marco, are becoming frustrated – how can they keep her safe when they don’t know where she’s going or what she’s doing? Someday, people will die for you. And, while she does have a tendency to get rather lucky when her life is on the line she always comes out on top. Furthermore, she’s beginning to feel like ” Cassie’s always been loyal to those she loves and her actions in this installment further prove that she’s willing to sacrifice herself for others.
But, it’s often her loyalty to others that is used against her. She’s well aware of her lack of knowledge. Having come into her position without the training others received, she’s often, sometimes literally, flying by the seat of her pants.
Reap the Wind is no exception. On occasion, the time jumps and all that was learned on them became a bit confusing. Fans will also know that Chance has a way of bringing side characters to the forefront on occasion. And, in this installment, master vampires Fred, Rico and primarily Marco had larger parts in Cassie’s story.
Billy, on the other hand, has little page time. I need to remember to either re-read the previous books or, at the very least, read my reviews before jumping into a new installment. Similar to the previous books, another two years have passed since we last saw Cassie and gang in Tempt the Stars.
That said, because of the long time gap between installments, I appreciated Karen Chance’s mini info dumps throughout. They help refresh details about the lives of the characters and past events.
Some questions were answered while others were raised. Cassie raises quite a few questions herself. I’m anxious to see if her discovery in the past will affect the future in the way I envision it or not. These books are always quite a ride and, more often than not, I’m left a bit dizzy when the ride stops. He went against his deal to keep their work and personal lives separate.
And, he expects her to believe that once their enemies currently the fae were defeated this army of masters wouldn’t turn on others? Tami helps her with the mass of children from her court that are now her responsibility. She went back in time to rescue them when their home was bombed. They’re currently living in her suite. Tami is a take-charge type and sets things to rights as much as is possible.
She also provides Cassie with some much needed motivation and organization, which is why Cass offered her a job as her “chief coordinator”.
And nobody got to do that but me. Do you get it? Where Fury’s Kiss gave us Dorina’s perspective, previous discoveries made by Cassie have her confused as to just who this gorgeous brunette is and what connection she has to Mircea.

This review was originally posted on un Conventional Bookviews Reap the Wind is extremely fast-paced, and so much is going on both in Cassie’s world and in other places and times The overall storyline in Reap the Wind didn’t cover as much as I had expected, especially with everything that happened!
Cassie traveled a lot through space and time, in order to save people, and herself, and to figure out more about her power. She also had more help in this story than in the prior ones, and that This review was originally posted on un Conventional Bookviews Reap the Wind is extremely fast-paced, and so much is going on both in Cassie’s world and in other places and times She also had more help in this story than in the prior ones, and that was certainly a relief.
I felt almost frantic while listening, because there is a lot to cover, even if most of that has to do with Cassie herself. I loved the interactions between Cassie and her very own acolytes, because while they might not know everything, the knew enough to show Cassie the right direction for her to go in.
I also really appreciated the vamp Marco, because he was one of the few people who were supposed to be on her side who was really on her side. He trusted in her and her power, and he also felt sure she would do the right thing. Of course, she also brought quite a bit of excitement to his boring life, and he enjoyed that as much as I did. At the beginning of the story, I tried to listen in my car, but that didn’t work for me – I got distracted and went too far on the highway, having to turn back and rather concentrating on driving than on the story I was enjoying.
This led me to listening at home, either as I was doing stuff around the house, or as I was coloring in my adult coloring books. Reap the Wind finally showed Cassie becoming more sure of herself, and also more than a little fed up with all those who only wanted to use her, those who didn’t truly respect her even if they did somewhat believe in her. I thought she was long overdue to be angry, and it was refreshing to see her rage against everything that didn’t go the way she expected it to.
The narration was great, and I need to find more books narrated by Jorjeana Marie, she made the different voices and accents for the various characters effortlessly, and I found that she brought a lot to Cassie’s world that I didn’t get when reading it for myself.
Written mostly from Cassie’s point of view, I felt like I was in the middle of the breakneck action with her, through planes I hadn’t thought I’d ever visit. The only downside to Reap the Wind was that I wanted more of a resolution to what happened towards the end of Tempt the Stars.
Everything that could go wrong for Cassie goes wrong that I just want the girl to get a break eventually.
Cassie is continuing to learn about her powers and what she can do along with trying to stop the end of the world and saving her mentor Pritkin. All in a day’s work for your typical Pythia. There is a ton going on in this book and at times it does feel a tad overwhelming considering the sheer amount of time travel happening. I guess feeling like that is a great way to get an understanding of how Cassie must feel.
I always admire Cassie’s work ethic and ability to just keep going in this series. I would have quit a long time ago and just go find someplace quiet to be for a very long time. Cassie does have help from a large cast of secondary characters and this cast expands a touch in this book.
Cassie goes back in time and meets up with ‘past’ Pritkin he counts as a new-ish character! I liked seeing the old Pythias and seeing how they use their powers and I also enjoyed learning a bit more about Pythia acolytes and how they lived and about their duties to the Pythia. There always seems to be a small fraction of forward momentum in the overall plot and Cassie’s learning curve always moves forward a touch but mostly it feels like treading water as the series goes on.
I really do love the story and will read the next book but I just want more forward momentum and less cliffhangers. View 2 comments. Aug 17, Always Reading rated it it was amazing.
Another whirlwind, whistle stop tour through time with my best girl Cassie, on yet another Pritkin rescue mission! So, if you’ve seen my last review you’ll know I completely adore this series. I adore it to a point where although I can understand other people’s frustration with the lack of progress in a certain area, and that the thing we’re all desperately hoping will happen is still just. I’m just here with my arms splayed wide saying, “Tease me, Karen chance, tease me you wi Another whirlwind, whistle stop tour through time with my best girl Cassie, on yet another Pritkin rescue mission!
I’m just here with my arms splayed wide saying, “Tease me, Karen chance, tease me you wicked temptress! Even without “that thing” I just simply enjoyed being in this world again.
I love the characters, the time travel, the vampire politics, the humour, the complicated romantic storyline All of it. I’ve also enjoyed seeing Cassie’s development over the series. She’s not your typical UF heroine who’s seemingly born a badass. She’s absolutely had to learn every meagre skill she has the hard and long way, often with Pritkin’s help.
Do you remember when he helpfully pushed her off a cliff so she could learn to Shift under pressure? He’s a sweetiepie, that man. I always enjoy the pace of Chance’s books. For me, they’re perfection and I can’t wait for the next book, and the one after that, and the one after that May 06, HJ rated it really liked it Shelves: urban-fantasy.
Can’t believe I’m saying this, but there was simply too much going on in this book for me. I know, I know, you say. Yeah, pretty much, but for some reason, this time, it made for hard reading. I found myself forgetting what the point of the previous adventure was when each new interruption adventure popped up.
I’ll still keep on in the series, but this one just wasn’t a favorite for me.

Neither of which is great news, destroying Apollo nearly killed Cassie, so trying to stop his bigger meaner brother Ares may prove impossible, especially with all the supernatural faction fighting against each other, and her, rather than focusing on the real problem.
And Pritkin. She 4. At last! I have been waiting for this book for forever, and we were kept waiting an extra year, but was the 2 year gap between books worth it? We were left with a massive cliff hanger in the previous book, Tempt the Stars, with Pritkin seeming to be all but dead and Cassie about to embark on a desperate mission to save him.
So, as I said, was it worth the wait? Yes, yes it was. You need to be prepared when starting a Cassie Palmer novel because you are about to dive head first in to some unrelenting crazy action, from the first page to the last Cassie and co jump from a disaster to a catastrophe and then back to another disaster, all with barely a pause for breath.
And I loved every second of it, this series is always exciting and really gets your adrenaline pumping. She is a great heroine, she injects humour, intelligence and a good amount of heart in this series and she is what keeps me coming back for more.
Well, her and the strange love triangle between her, Mircea the smooth and sexy Master Vampire and Pritkin the grouchy and gorgeous War Mage and half Incubus. Once again however, we are left with a cliff hanger, it seems unfair the Karen Chance can draw me in and then leave me hanging like this! Mar 15, Dr susan rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-again , need-to-buy.
The action is typical Chance roller coaster, non-stop manic mayhem with any breaks being devoted to little girls in nightgowns and the vampires protecting them. Laugh out loud moments are frequent, but sorrow is as well, since the basis for Chance’s series is a magical war and wars have ca I have never lied about being a Dory Basarab fan; actually, Cassie Palmer is third on my Karen Chance list after Dory and Accalia.
Laugh out loud moments are frequent, but sorrow is as well, since the basis for Chance’s series is a magical war and wars have casualties. I consider these books more contemporary or urban fantasy, because the romance is not the primary factor of the story. Honestly, I would prefer Cassie get both Pritkin and Mircea, but I trust Chance to write an enthralling story, no matter who Cassie ends up with. Reap the Wind Cassandra Palmer 7.
