Just an avid reader. Mostly SF/Fantasy, some hobbies, paranormal, urban fantasy and lighter, fluffier things.
Ack! Yes, I enjoyed the read (well not the opening flubbing about in time travel interrupted by other Pythia and yet more bad guys that went on too long). If I didn't like the book while reading it, I'd have rated much lower for the simple fact it's pretty much all filler. A lot of recycled filler at that as Cassie is still trying to(show spoiler)
Yes, okay, towards an end chapter she did seem to have toughened up a bit and gotten more aware with less patience for everyone using her. Which is kinda like the bits in the previous books.
Unlike some other reviewers, I wouldn't consider it a cliffhanger ending; just a "nothing" new sort of thing. Again, read like a filler with the big buildups anticlimactic or still to come. I'm not invested in any of her love/lust interests because I don't see any of them as good relationships. I'd be happier with the romance, though, if she took more control and either made an effort to get a healthier relationship with Micea or ditched it.
As a story, not worthy of 3 stars. As characters I enjoy reading about, what to know what happens next and written in a way that engages me ... *sigh* I know it's the 7th in the series but I was hoping to have moved past what the past couple of books have rambled on about.
With the exception of one character's parentage, I don't think there's even anything in this volume to put under a spoiler tag if anyone has read the past few books.
