Series Spotlight for Karen Chance

The Cassandra Palmer series by Karen Chance was my first in many ways. My first series, my very first foray into the world of eBooks, and my very first supernatural books. So naturally I want to share them with you! Not to mention they are a great read for Halloween.
While there are mixed reviews for this series, I believe these books to be very well written. Ms. Chance is a very creative writer that has delivered four action packed books so far in this series with more to come. I like the intricate details delivered with her style and I like how the continuing story flows between each book. Now, Ms. Chance does have a lot going on in each book. She makes you pay attention for sure...and like it! ;-) Here are the book covers, blurbs and a trailer!

Who is Karen Chance, you ask?
Read about her here.

Book 1: Cassandra Palmer Series: Touch The Dark


Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits-talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead.  The ghosts of the dead aren't usually dangerous; they just like to talk...a lot. The undead are another matter.

Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires.  But when the bloodsucking Mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she's forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection. The undead senators won't help her for nothing, and Cassie finds herself working with one of their most powerful members, a dangerously seductive master vampire-and the price he demands may be more than Cassie is willing to pay... 

Book 2: Cassandra Palmer Series: Claimed By Shadow
A recent legacy made Cassandra Palmer heir to the title of Pythia, the world's chief clairvoyant. It's a position that usually comes with years of training, but Cassie's circumstances are a little...unusual.  Now she's stuck with a whopping amount of power that every vamp, fey, and mage in town wants to either monopolize or eradicate-and that she herself doesn't dare use.

What's more, she's just discovered that a certain arrogant master vampire has a geis on her-a  magical claim that warns off any would-be suitors, and might also explain the rather ... intense attraction between them. But Cassie's had it with being jerked around, and anyone who tries it from now on is going to find out that she makes a very bad enemy...



Book 3: Cassandra palmer Series: Embrace The Night

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…

Book 4: Cassandra Palmer: Curse The Dawn

Cassandra Palmer may be the all-powerful Pythia now, but that doesn’t mean people have stopped trying to kill her. Most of the supernatural power players don’t want the independent minded Cassie as chief clairvoyant—and they’ll stop at nothing to see her six feet under.
The Vampire Senate does support Cassie in her position, but their protection comes with a price: an alliance with the sexy master vampire Mircea, who has claimed Cassie as his own.
 But even the vampires will have trouble keeping Cassie alive now that the self-styled god Apollo, the source of the Pythia’s power, has it in for her in a big way. To save her life—and the world—Cassie’s going to have to face down her creator once and for all.



And here is the book trailer for book number four. It is my favorite. It definitely gives you a sweet taste of the love interest aka, Mircea and her partner/bodyguard, Pritkin. Enjoy!
