Maybe a little too many characters.
Turned into light erotica for the last few chapters...
I've read worse books....”

“The first in the Cassie Palmer series. Cassie (Cassandra) is a clairvoyant who has run away from the vampire who murdered her family in order to have access to her powers from a young age. Now the vampires have found her but it's not the one who kept her for all those years but the Consul and the entire North American Senate who want to use her and her powers. A war is brewing with another faction of vampires led by Rasputin who is siding himself with the Dark Fey and the Black Circle of Mages. Rasputin has managed to kidnap the sybil who was chosen to be the next Pythia, the clairvoyant repository of great power to move about in time. The Silver Circle has sent its own representative, Pritkin, whose job it is to make sure that the sybil is found or barring that, to keep Cassie from gaining that power because she is untrained and they don't believe they'll be able to control her should the power choose to go to her. The problem with that is that she already seems to be exhibiting some of those powers. So now Cassie has Tony (her old vampire master), Rasputin, and Pritkin all wanting to take her out and the only people who want to keep her alive are a different bunch of vampires who, while they will seduce her to get what they want, will still want to keep her on a short leash and curb her freedom.
As you can see, there is a TON going on in this book. It was a bit confusing at times trying to figure out what was going on with the time jumping stuff but it does get explained eventually. I really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to the next one. There are currently four more out in the series sitting on my bookshelf so now I just need to find more time to read.
“This got better as it went along, it started out slow and I thought I wouldn't like Cassie, but then I related to her more and more. Love Billie Joe and slightly like the vampire angle, although was hoping to learn more about clairvoyant than vamps.”Zombie Katie wrote this review Tuesday, July 17, 2012.

“Cassandra is a clairvoyant who has been hiding from her vampire 'master'. Now she is being hunted not only by the vampires but also by other clairvoyants who believe that she will become their new Phythas.
Well written fantasy world.”
“Way too much information and not enough story in the first half of the book. Once the story got going, I liked it better, but not enough to increase the rating. I like the Dorina B series a lot better.”Katharine G Sadler wrote this review Tuesday, June 5, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Cassie is a pretty strong character. She is tough as nails, stubborn , and witty, but she also does not know who to trust and is very vunerable, because she does not know who to keep as friends.Cassie kept the novel upbeat and action packed, but the ending to me, felt a little unfinshed. Even though their will be other novels after this one . I just felt like the ending could of used a little me finality.”nappilicious wrote this review Monday, May 28, 2012.

“I liked Touch the Dark. It reminded me of Laurel K. Hamilton's Anita Blake and Merry Gentry books, which I also enjoyed. I can't wait to read the next one.”Meghan R wrote this review Monday, May 21, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
