For person who grew up at a manipulative, evil, violent vampire court, Cassie Palmer is amazingly naive and childish. I'm not sure I'd keep reading this series if not for Pritkin and Mircea. Well, it's also a fascinating world in which she lives.

Admittedly, Cassie's life has been rather topsy-turvy to put it mildly. Protected by a renegade war mage who is never quite sure if he wants to kill her or protect her. "Married" to a master vampire who is himself a target with plans for her future. Those are her allies. Then there's the Silver Circle with its thousands of war mages trying to capture or kill her, the Black Circle undecided if they should kill her or capture her, time travelers trying to kill her, an exiled God battering the walls between his world and ours threatening all magic, the Senate trying to control her, and a new job as Pythia for which she has no training but, it seems, all the skills.

The Silver Circle and the Senate each want to control her for their own ends. Unfortunately for them, Cassie was never an apprentice to the Pythia and was never molded by either side. Cassie has her own agenda and I don't think either side is going to be happy...if she ever manages to be proclaimed the Pythia officially.
