Rescuing her friend John Pritkin should have been an in and out kind of deal, but with the near-immortal mage’s soul lost in time, Cassie has to hunt for it through the ages—with Pritkin’s demon dad in tow. He’s the only one who can reverse Pritkin’s curse, but with the guardians of the time-line dead set on stopping anyone from mucking about, Cassie will have to figure out how to get her friend back without ruffling too many feathers—or causing a world-ending paradox or two...
Okay, Cassie can time travel, cast spells but never as well as others it often seems. She's stubborn, resourceful, and frustrates the hell out of those around her. This instalment was hilarious when Cassie and Rosier popped up in Wales, but it's the pathos woven into the story that gets me. Cassie is being challenged from all sides but she has a strong protective urge and we see her at her best. Cassie may appear fragile and weak but she is a survivor and will fight for those she considers hers and let's face it as Pythia, the world’s leading psychic, doesn't the whole world in some way belong to her?
So yes, Ms Chance makes me smile but she has the reader routing for Cassie and when the action gets going, it's unstoppable. It's like a movie playing in the theatre of my mind, worthy of any of the best directors out there. Beware though so much is going on that at times the reader is in danger of whip lash!
I waited so long for Reap the Wind, but it was worth it.
