Karen Chance has lived in France, the UK and Hong Kong, and currently lives in Orlando, Florida. She is the author of two previous novels in the Cassandra Palmer series, Touch the Dark and Claimed by Shadow.From AudioFile:
As a newly appointed oracle, Cassandra Palmer has a new enemy, The Silver Circle, powerful mages from whom the oracle has traditionally been selected. But Cassie's more pressing matter of concern is how to unbind herself from a master vampire. The key, contained within the Codex Merini, an ancient grimoire, has been hidden because its powerful incantations are dangerous. But Cassie believes she can handle this power. Cynthia Holloway renders a rhythmic performance in this paranormal drama. Variations in tone effectively communicate the subtle nuances and underlying wit in the story. Holloway's masterful control infuses drama into key scenes yet avoids melodrama. In all, this well-crafted story and Holloway's soothing vocals are a satisfying pair.
