Embrace the Night (Cassandra Palmer #3)

From the book:
Recently named the world's chief clairvoyant, Cassandra Palmer still has a thorn in her side. As long as Cassie and a certain master vampire--the sizzling-hot Mircea--are magically bound to each other, her life will never be her own...
The spell that binds them can only be broken with an incantation found in the Codex Merlini, an ancient grimoire. The Codex's location has been lost in the present day, so Cassie will have to seek it out in the only place it can still be found--the past.
But Cassie soon realizes the Codex has been lost for a reason. The book is rumored to contain some seriously dangerous spells, and retrieving it may help Cassie to deal with Mircea, but it could also endanger the world...
I've really loved the Cassie Palmer stories and this one is no exception. Lots of action and a few loose ends were tied up in this book. She still does not have the confidence I would hope, but she is learning and growing within this book. She is still a capable heroine who keeps learning to stand up every time she falls (or gets pushed). She now has the unwanted title of Pythia and now must also gain the respect of those around her while balancing politics, her own morals, and not making the wrong move and destroying the world. Just an everyday happenstance in her new world. She learns a lot more about those around her and who to trust. She also finds out who really trusts her.

Now to the question that those who have been following the series might ask. Does she break the geis? Do her and Mircea finally give into their passions? Guess what? Not going to spoil it for you. You'll just have to read it to find out. I will say that it sets things up nicely for the next book. This book gets 4 out of 5 stars and is recommended, especially if you have been a fan of the series. If you haven't read this series before I do recommend getting "Touch the Dark" which is the first book and start reading. You won't be sorry. :)
