Cassandra Palmer, the world's chief clairvoyant, doesn't get a lot of downtime. Being Pythia means being on call 24/7, especially with her coronation just weeks away. Between struggling with her new powers and wading through the complicated mess that is her relationship with Mircea, she really has no time to mess with would-be assassins who want to get her out of the picture. Even if that means making sure she's never born.

Hunt the Moon  is action- packed and full of adventure. It it were a movie on the big screen, it would be the one with car chases, explosions, and gunfire. The one where people are repeatedly the worse for wear, but just keep getting back up, ready for more. I felt exhausted when I finished the last page, like I had just run a 5K.  

Just weeks away from the coronation that will begin her official reign as Pythia, there are several attempts on her life, even as guarded as she is. While the vamps and the Silver Circle scramble to identify this new threat, Cassie must rely on Pritkin for extra protection.

Meanwhile, Cassie is being pulled in two different directions by the Vampire Council and the Silver Circle, who each want to be the one that controls the Pythia. She has news for them - this Pythia will be controlled by no one.

Cassie is also trying to navigate through her complicated relationship with Mircea. She resents his high handedness and control issues, but she is still inexplicably drawn to him.

Cassie discovers more about her origins, specifically her parents. There is great plot twist here, which I will not reveal for those of you who have not read the book yet.

What ensues is a mad cap race through time while Cassie and her friends try to thwart her death and discover who is behind the threat. This book has a lot of juicy scenes between Cassie and Mircea, and Cassie and Pritkin. (Can I just say - I am on Team Pritkin all the way!!) The story ends on what I would call a frustratingly wonderful cliffhanger and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!
