Embrace the Night


From the book jacket:

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…

Reviews for Embrace the Night

What makes Cassandra (Cassie) Palmer such a wonderful character is her groundedness. Cassie is a loyal friend. She listens to her heart and she doesn't wait for someone else to come along and rescue her or tell her what to do. She's never convinced she's doing the right thing but she's always doing the best she can with what she knows at the moment. The mix of vulnerability and steely resolve make for some interesting twists in the plotline.--SFRevu 
Cassie is a great character.  Her ability to laugh at and chastise herself provides a surprising amount of comic relief in a lot of situations that shouldn't be funny. The secondary and even tertiary characters are fabulous as well. Each character is very much his or her own person, with very different quirks and senses of humor. As far as supernatural and paranormal series go, this is one of the best.--The Romance Reader.com (five star review)
Cassie--in her struggles between her passionate need for independence, her burgeoning feelings for Mircea and her conflicts with her new role as Pythia--is a well-rounded character, and the intensity and complexity of the plot puts her through her paces physically, emotionally and psychically. --Publishers Weekly Sprinkled with some scintillating encounters with Mircea, Cassie begins to grow into her new title as she discovers it’s not simply the geis that draws them together. Quick pacing and imaginative use of some old mythologies blend into a captivating read that will leave readers clamoring for more. --MonstersandCritics.com
Ms. Chance continues to expand her well-built world with time-travel, fantastical beings, steamy romance and the non-stop action her wonderful series provides. This is a fast-moving read that’s hard to set down, and it will no doubt leave readers eager for future installments in the Cassandra Palmer series.--Kimberly Swan, Darque Reviews This novel is a wonderfully refreshing step away from the cookie cutter regime of the usual vampire novels. With pixies, mages, vampires, the mob and Cassie's clairvoyant powers, this novel has it all. Believable characters, descriptive settings and thrills and chills kept this reader on the edge of her seat anxious to discover the outcome of Cassie’s adventure.--Round Table Reviews
The complex, detailed back story gives Cassandra's life a depth and breadth that make it stand apart from the many other vampire and supernatural fantasy series. The characters are complicated and well rounded, never stereotypical, and their interactions are believable, often humorous, with dialog that brings everything vividly to life.--Books and Other Thoughts.com
Fast paced adventures, physical attraction between characters that is positively electrifying, engaging characters, a whole passel of supernatural creatures, these are trademarks of Karen Chance’s books. Embrace the Night more than meets the expectations of readers like me who have become fascinated with Cassie’s story.--Kelley A. Hartsell,
Wow! EMBRACE THE NIGHT is another edge-of-your-seat ride with Cassie Palmer. Karen Chance does a fantastic job of keeping to the high standards for plot, humor, romance, and action that she set in the first book, TOUCH THE DARK.--Romance Reviews Today Embrace the Night, Karen Chance’s third volume in the Cassandra Palmer series is a fitting sequel to the first two. Fast paced and filled with faeries, kids, vampires, mages, ghosts, incubi, gargoyles, magic spells, evil plots, backstabbing and surprises – this one follows the lead of the first two and adds in a bit more of each to ‘kick it up a notch’ so to speak.--fantasybookspot.com
