You’d think that being Chief Seer for the supernatural world would come with a few perks. But as Cassie Palmer has learned, being Pythia doesn’t mean you don’t have to do things the hard way. That’s why she finds herself on a rescue mission skipping through time—even though she doesn't entirely understand her dimension-bending new power.

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...

It's been a while since I read book six, TEMPT THE STARS, so I had forgotten a few of the events that had happened and was a little confused when I started reading REAP THE WIND. I thankfully caught myself up on what was going on, but if you have the time you might want to do a quick re-read for a refresher.

I hate to admit it, but I wasn't overly crazy about the time traveling in REAP THE WIND. Most of it revolved around saving Pritkin and there was a LOT of it, but nothing seemed to be accomplished. It was however interesting getting to know Pritkin's dad Rosier. He was a lot more interesting than I thought he would be and he kinda grew on me. The time traveling that happened outside of saving Pritkin, did add on to the storyline of TEMPT THE STARS. I enjoyed watching Cassie learn more about the last Pythia.

I just don't know how I feel about the whole Mircea, Pritkin, Cassie triangle. Is it a triangle? Will it ever go one way or the other instead of keeping Cassie in the middle? What is going on? I just don't know who to root for anymore. Uggh.

The end made me want to pull out my hair. I hate that I have to wait until April 5th, 2016 to read the next book, RIDE THE STORM, and find out what will happen next. I have been waiting for Cassie to meet the person she meets at the end of the book since we as readers first found out about them. AHHH write Karen, write!

I gave it 4/5 Stars

  1. I have this from Netgalley, but I haven't gotten to it because I have so many others in the series I need to read first. Thanks for the review, because it made me realize this is one I won't be able to just skip over the rest of the series to get to.
