New Release Review! Brave the Tempest (Cassandra Palmer #9) Karen Chance!

 

 

 

Welcome to Thursday, Readers! Today I am joining Cassandra Palmer as she finds herself facing two adversaries! Enjoy and don't forget to add Brave the Tempest by Karen Chance to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Cassie Palmer has been chief seer of the supernatural world for a little over four months. In that time, she's battled two gods, fallen in love with two men, and confronted the two sides of her own nature, both god and human. So it's not surprising that she currently finds herself facing two adversaries, although they have a single purpose: to wipe out the supernatural community's newest fighting force, leaving it vulnerable to enemies in this world and beyond.

 

To prevent catastrophe, the vamps, mages, and demons will have to do the one thing they've never managed before and come together as allies. Cassie has the difficult task of keeping the uneasy coalition intact, and of persuading her own two opposing forces, a powerful mage with a secret and a master vampire with a growing obsession, to fight at her side. She just hopes they can do it without tearing each other apart.

 

 

 

For the past four months, Pythia Cassandra Palmer has been quite busy battling gods, falling in love with two men and confronted the two sides of her own nature, both god and human. So it’s not really surprising that she is now facing two adversaries with a single purpose – to wipe out the supernatural community’s newest fighting force. Cassie also has the difficult task of keeping the uneasy alliance between the vamps, mages and demons intact and persuading her own two opposing forces, a powerful mage and a master vampire to fight at her side without tearing each other apart.

 

Cassie is being run ragged in this riveting and volatile new story. Fans of the Cassandra Palmer series love all the strong, dominant characters and all the explosive action and thrilling suspense and they’re definitely disappointed with one as continues in true Cassandra Palmer fashion and keeps readers’ hearts pounding and their eyes cemented to the pages. The non-stop, fast paced plot is full of suspense, excitement and emotionally gripping turmoil of personal issues, relationship issues, political issues and of course, the issues of all the two adversaries with plans to make the supernatural community vulnerable in this world and beyond. The Senate is planning an offensive but of course is plagued with mistrust and their own arrogance with the politics getting in the way, betrayals and enemies keep stirring up things up and testing Cassie’s endurance. While Cassie’s still questioning her relationship with Mircea and wondering what is happening between her and Pritkin. With all of this going on, is it any wonder that readers can’t possibly put this stunning, deliciously thrilling story down once they have begun.

What Happened?
The Double Life of Incorporate Things - Leanna Renee Hieber

Natalie was such a strong character in the first two books. In this book she was an insecure love sick puppy prattling on and on about Jonathan. The book was slow and never grabbed my attention. I would've been pleased with book 2's ending. Now, I feel completely let down. However, it was great to finally learn about The Master's Society and revisit loved characters.

New Powers And a Romantic Twist
The Seers - Julianna Scott

I enjoyed this YA tale of super powers, young romance, hot men, intense political intrigue and twists. It had all the elements of a good young adult read with a solid storyline and some fantastic characters. The powers these holders have are fantastic.
I was slightly lost by not having read book 1 in the series, but the author did give some brief hints that made. I would suggest reading book one first, some of the plot lines sound extremely interesting.
The story started with a young girl, Becca a holder, who had be betrayed by a trusted family friend. She must find this man who can lead them to saving both human and holder kind ( beings cool powers). She and her fellow holders travel to this meeting with some very uppity types who seem to believe in some kind of caste system with the most powerful holders at the top. There she must obey her guardian, and follow the rules. She doesn’t, she stomps her feet, acts like a rotten spoiled child, endangers everything and just irritated the heck out of me with her immaturity. Of course there is much more to her, and she does get better but boy does she pull some stupid moves.
She is bonded to a young man Alex, dreamy sweet Alex. Yes, I liked him. I’m not sure how that all came about, it was in the first book. She is one lucky girl because on top of having Alex she is paired up with Bastian, a prince of sort with looks, power, secrets and attitude plus. There is a triangle of sorts, with a fun little twist. Oh, and there is a kick in the heart.
Heartbreaking moments will have you grabbing for the tissue box. The cliffhanger ending will have you chewing your nails to the quick waiting for the third book.

Read the full review on Tales Between the Pages

...

What I enjoy about Scott’s writing style is that the plot is fast-paced but the characters don’t move around a lot. Meaning, that there is generally one major setting for the entire novel. It was St. Brigid’s in “The Holders” and Adare Manor in “The Seers.” Sometimes it’s exhausting following a character all over creation. We really get to know an area when the character stays put and experiences all there is to offer. Adare Manor is certainly a gorgeous place, both in Scott’s description of it and in photos that I’ve seen on the internet.

So why do I think “The Seers” falls into the sophomore slump? It was the last quarter of the book.

The kidnapping of Jocelyn and Steven didn’t feel realistic. It was hard for me to believe that a few Bunnaidh buffoons could really overpower one of the most powerful Holders in existence. Really hard. It was also really hard for me to believe that Becca could launch a rescue mission with nothing but Alex’s ability to help her. Surely Darragh (the villain and just as powerful as Jocelyn) would have spells in place that would keep people like Alex from casting false images in the compound. Darragh needs to go back to villain school. I’m also trying to come to terms with Steven’s fate. I keep telling myself that they will find some miraculous cure in the next book. Hopefully I’m right.

(spoiler show)



...

I want to take a minute to talk about Bastian. I was totally convinced that he was going to double cross Becca. I was wrong. He was an interesting character. He has his own secrets that are shocking and exciting. I liked the friendship that developed between he and Becca. They are uniquely able to understand each other. He’s protective over his brother, Steven, in the same way that she is protective over her own brother.

So, as it turns out, the only reason why I didn’t like this book as much is because I found the last action sequence too unbelievable. If it had ended on a stronger note, I wouldn’t have even thought of the sophomore slump.

But, “The Seers” was a good read. I really like this series and can’t wait to read the next.
