Hunt the Moon (Cassandra Palmer #5)
Cassandra Palmer recently defeated a god, which you'd think would buy a girl a little time off. But it doesn't work that way when your job description is Pythia-the world's chief clairvoyant. Cassie is busier than ever, trying to learn about her power, preparing for her upcoming coronation, and figuring out her relationship with the enigmatic sexy maste...more
cover is beautiful!
but what do they mean 'figuring out her relationship with Mircea'?!?!
THERE'S NO QUESTION,
Pritkin should be the one she chooses!
he's WAAAAAAAAAY better than Mircea!
YOU'RE THE MAN!
PRITKIIIIIIIIINNNNNN! OH WHYYYYY????? WHYYYYYYYYYY? T_T
In a way, the hiatus was a good thing. Why? I remember when I read the first four books in this series, I was engaged, but not 100% with the writing and characters (this, mind you, was all before I embraced my book addiction; it was when I actually worried about running out of boo...more
i was really disappointed when i finished reading hunt the moon cause i wanted to keep reading, lol.
it was a great read! we got alot more of pritkin & mircea, can i just say... OMG PRITKIN he is so scrumptious, i know mircea is suppose to be the sexy one and he loves cassie but pritkin will win it the end, you just wait and see ;-).
pritkin opened up more to cassie, which was lovely!! and cassie's now accepted the power as her's, we got to meet her parents.... kinda. oh an...more
What? You were about to object?! Then look down (no, it's not a baby seal, it's all me), back up, where are you? You're in the past in a hotel with the master vamp that can sell you sand in...more
Maybe it was the high expectations but I couldn't help being a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong: it's a well written story in typical Chance pace, prose and humor. But it also felt...more
The story begins with Cassie awaiting her coronation as Pythia. Mircea has her under constant guard; Pritkin is inundating her with self-defense training. Obviously, they're taking the threat of an attack very seriously. And they're right. A mysterious force targets Cassie in an ass...more
I won't go into too much detail again, my first review pretty much sums it up for me but I...more
There was tons of time with Pritkin, along with Cassie's vamp bodyguard Marco. They all seem to be getting quite chummy...
When Cassie is on the phone with Pritkin, Marco asks if the mage is coming over. Pritkin says yes (he can hear very well). So Marco says "bring beer, were almost out". And Pritkin shows up shortly with cold beer.
Mircea has his special date with Cassie, which leads to...more
I must make a note though of Chance's loose...more
What has writing world come to that yet another female sci-fi/horror/fantasy author feels the need to add explicit, pornographic sex scenes? What exactly does a play by play accomplish for the story? It certainly doesn't provide depth to any of the characters, it doesn't move the story along, in fact scenes like that are so abrupt and pointless the flow of the story is completely broken, it's sex for the point of sex and nothing more. And don't try to make the argument it's not porn,...more
But after 5 books I would expect her to get her personal life right by now. I'm a firm believer in 'if you don't want a man, let him know, cut him loose' and I believe even more firmly in 'pick one'.
Even though the times when she made out etc with Pritkin, there were extenuating circumstances, she wasn't that upset about it. And then sh...more
This book starts with a bang, literally. Within the first 100 pages there are two huge action sequences that go on for quite a while and I still wasn't really sure what the plot of this book was. I find myself after a while just glazing over paragraphs, because while I love ac...more
I never realized until now how sloppy and repetitive the writing was. Sentences would run on endlessly, forcing me to t...more
It actually caught me by surprise that the five books only stretch over about to months in Cassies life. Maybe it's all the time travelling. (And no, I'm not at all jealous about how fast she gets all those hot guys so close!) Her plots are so intricate you would not believe! And you can't but love Cassie with her quirks and constant inability to not get hurt og dirty....more
What I don't like are:
- silly excuses to get people to have sex; sex as nourishment, sex as energy-exchange, sex as whatever-else-that-is-not-just-sex... please, just go on with it, without resorting to convolute ways to excuse yourself for doing it;
- birthrights or legacies (parentage, gifts, funny-shaped scars) substituting meritocracy;
- heroines who can't make up their mind in their love life and heroes who obviously can have their pickings but no...more

“I'm not worried about me," I whispered viciously. And as sono as I said it, I knew it was the truth. Apparently, the surefire antidiote for your own fear is concern for someone else.
Pritkin looked surprised, the way he always did at the idea that anyone might actually care about him. It made me want to hit him. Of course, right then I wanted to do that anyway.
"Nothing is going to happen," he repeated. "But even if it did, you don't need me. You don'...more
So... in reality, I've really only been reading the Cassie Palmer series to keep up with the world events that Dorina Basarab l...more
But someone doesn't want Cassie to become Pythia, and is willing to go to any lengths to make sure the coronation ceremony neve...more
I have enjoyed every Cassie book up to and including this one (although not finished yet). However, every single time I read one I get more and more repulsed by the relationship between Mircea and Cassie. Fair enough, vamps have a different society and he's playing by different rules but here are my problems:
a) Cassie is NOT a vamp and yet she is letting herself, for the most part, be pushed around by this guy's sense of how things should be done because she "loves" him and mostly seems t...more
By the time I hit this book, the series had gone from "Hmmm, interesting" to "seriously, it's OVER now?!" Pretty much every aspect of this book, in particular, is my own personal style of Perfect Urban Fantasy. Frustr...more
As a reader, I don't want to see things coming, I don't want to see what the writer is hiding behind the curtain. It is a huge turn off for me when I can tell things are manipulated just to...more
But that is not all; Cassie discovers more about her mother when she travels back in time with Mircea to stop her enemies. It appears they after her mot...more
