Reap the Wind by Karen Chance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Where do I even begin with this book? I feel like the action was relentless in this latest installment, keeping me on the edge of my seat until the very last page! Poor Cassie can’t catch a break. These books are definitely building towards something, and I hope that something is Cassie saving the world and then having a nice long vacation with a very angsty war mage.
This book picks up with Cassie and Rosier on the hunt for Pritkin’s soul. It’s on a death march back to the beginning of his life, which means lots of time travel with an ornery demon. While this is (obviously) going terribly wrong, Cassie also has to juggle about a million other things. These things include: Her newly rescued court of young girls who are her new roomies, a very overbearing yet distant Mircea, the Circle and their incessant demands on her, and being near exhaustion every step of the way. I seriously get tired just reading about all the stressful and draining situations Cassie manages to survive.
So, as most of the fans, I am actively rooting for more Pritkin in this book. Sure, we knew it wouldn’t be easy for Cassie to get him back and evade this curse, but I was stupidly optimistic. Don’t worry, we don’t have a book with zero Pritkin; instead, we get a book filled with an awesomely young Pritkin who gets to experience meeting Cassie in the past (which has got to mess up the future, right?). I’m not sure if these two coming together would make me like this series less, but the author certainly knows how to drag me along. While we made progress in this one (I think? I’m still not really sure…), Cassie is in for even more trouble in the next book. I guess the ending doesn’t count as a true cliffhanger, but it hurt just as bad as one. I wish I had the next book ready to read before breezing through this one.
