download Pdf Brave the TempestAuthor Karen Chance –

Regardless of my personal quibbles w this series, I chomp at the bit quietly for each new release Given the events in the past few books, figured a re read would get me thru to release date.Best laid plans, right Nope Late night tired eyes error led me to start a month too soon Sticking to AB format did ease untold hours spent in summer gridlock but checks calendar Still weeks until release date, so loaded up Dorina 4 audio Good thing, too, b c of different POV info re overlapping events eg, attack at Consul s NY residence checks for audio info checks calendar weather forecast wonders if current memory can last I love this series so so so much but I swear to all the gods that is or was, if it takes all 544 pages of this book for Pritkin Cassie to become a couple or Mircea Cassie are

the Tempest I highly recommend this book as a must read to any urban fantasy connoisseur.I received this ARC copy of Brave the Tempest from Penguin Random House and Berkley Publishing Group This is my honest and voluntary review Brave the Tempest is set for publication July 30, 2019.My Rating 5 stars FAVORITEWritten by Karen ChanceSeries Cassie Palmer Book 9 Mass Market Paperback 576 pagesPublisher Berkley Publication Date July 30, 2019ISBN 10 1101990007ISBN 13 978 1101990001Genre Urban Fantasy Noble 3.5 starsNow that Cassie isn t chasing Pritkin through time she s finally figuring out how to be a pythia It s confusing since almost everyone else seems to know something about it she doesn t Almost everyone tries to use her position for their own political gain It took a long time for the story to really get going, and it took even longer for Pritkin to get some page time, which was well worth the wait Cassie was coming into her own both professionally and personally I loved it that she was standing up for herself At times I did have a hard time following things because it was all over the place Cassie can teleport and time travel, so settings can unexpectedly change Even when in one place, one conversation would get interrupted by another and another I know this series tends to be like that, but for whatever reason I found it particularly distracting this time.Cassie and Mircea did talk I was satisfied with the way their conversation went It s great that Cassie can see him for the political mastermind he is instead of assuming he always has her best interests at heart.I loved just about every scene with Pritkin He and Cassie are very different but they complement each other well I m not going to say any than that You ll have to read it to find out what happens with them.Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me this in exchange for an honest review I received a copy of Brave the Tempest in exchange for a fair and honest review.Brave the Tempest is the latest installment in the Cassie Palmer series, and man could I not be happier to have a copy of this book in my hands I know some fans have only been reading one series or the other Cassie or Dory , but there is some backstory that is very relevant in Dory s series and short stories that you probably don t want to miss out on Plus they re a blast, so there s that.This novel continues the battle that Cassie and her allies not quite the accurate term, all things considered, but we re going with it have been prepping for and dealing with for years And yes, it lived up to all of my hopes and expectations.Cassie has had to put up with a lot over the past few months though it s hard to believe what has been years for us has only been months for her , and Brave the Tempest didn t give her any breaks She s still learning how to be a Pythia, on top of dealing with multiple senates and courts, plus prepping for a battle to end all battles One that they ll hopefully win And somehow Cassie has to get all of these different factions to work together in order to have any chance of having everybody survive it all.The Cassie Palmer series and the Dory series by extension has been one of my favorite series for a long time now And while we may be than a dozen books in now, I still can t get enough So I may be just a tiny bit biased in this review But only as biased as any fan would be.Brave the Tempest had a lot of expectations riding on it, and yet it managed to meet all of them I enjoyed every minute of this read, all of the lows and all of the highs And everything in between.This novel is a whopping 544 pages, but honestly It blew by in no time This series has always been an eventful one with Cassie having to deal with problems left and right And Brave the Tempest is no exception to that rule.There was just SO much that happened here, I m not even sure where to begin Cassie was fantastic, as always I adore her drive and determination And honestly, I love that nothing Cassie does is ever easy you re always fully aware of the cost and ramifications of her actions.The last few novels in this series have really upped the ante on the emotional level Cassie has always had to deal with a lot but suddenly the whole mess felt a lot personal And I m happy to say that Brave the Tempest continued this trend Though naturally the how and why has altered, thanks to the conclusion of Ride the Storm.And boy, was this novel an emotional roller coaster In a good way, I promise Every battle and conflict that Cassie and her allies have been prepping for are looming on the horizon And yet and keeps creeping up to complicate the matter I don t envy anyone in this situation.The secondary characters in this novel are numerous As they would have to be, given how many people Cassie has to work with Yet, I feel like many of them had moments in this novel Some than others, naturally But all of the important players were there More than that though, it seemed like they ve all had character growth along the way.The personal moments in this novel were deeply moving And I don t just mean the romantic sort of personal moments There were several heart to heart moments here, and I feel like they have been a long time coming I m happy that Karen Chance made time for them here I think it was time.I ve said it before, but I m saying it again here I adore the political shenanigans in this series The world is just so incredibly complex, with factions and senates all working towards their own goals and frequently getting in each other s way It s so rich and intense And it may sound odd to say this being that I m talking about fantasy creatures here but it makes it all believable Because I don t believe for a minute that all of these consuls and covens would work flawlessly together for fun.Some of the politics in this novel quite literally had me squealing There s nothing I love than a good political throwdown Especially in the supernatural world And I got exactly what I wanted here And then some I ll skip the details, because they re so much better first hand But I will say that Brave the Tempest officially has one of my favorite scenes.As for the resolution in Brave the Tempest It s something I think we ve been needing for a while now I know it s something Cassie has needed And yes, my statement there is a layered one, because I m referring to several things that happened But in my defense, a lot happened at once.I m a bit sad that the book is over but on the bright side, I won t have to wait long for the next novel Shatter the Earth Cassandra Palmer 10 is scheduled for a December release And yes, I do mean of this year I m so excited Updated Release Date July 30, 2019I received this as an advanced reader s copy via Netgalley courtesy of Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review.I m going to start by saying a busy start to our summer holiday s made me draw out reading this book to 5 days when I could have gobbled it up in a single night if I had the time Although that wasn t a bad thing because it allowed me to savour it a bit than I normally could have reading all at once.The Cassandra Palmer series is definitely one of my favourites because of how original it is I have read a few other series that focus on time travel back and forth, but I tend to find them confusing because the story lines never seem to flow properly for me Miss Chance does an amazing job of keeping the storyline flowing perfect regardless of what timeline Cassy finds herself in, and I love that about this series If you haven t read the previous books in the series, Miss Chance does do an excellent job of updating you on past escapades that have led up to the current ones in this book, so it would be a good stand alone read if you absolutely must however, the series in it s entirety is absolutely fantastic, and it would be an excellent use of time to read the series beginning to current, if you haven t already it will not disappoint.Brave The Tempest had a lot to take in, as it ties up a few ends and opens a few others with all the overlapping story arcs which helps to keep the reader engaged and interested I feel like this instalment in the series is extra special because we see Cassy standing up for herself and taking the reins on the Pythia power, her political position as Pythia, and her personal life than she ever has in the past She is stepping up to the plate in a assertive way that shows just how strong a woman she actually is We also get a peak into how the Pythia courts of old worked and how the acolytes were trained which is lots of fun.Overall, Brave The Tempest is a very fun book with humour, romance, action, adventure, drama, and a little bit of gore It s a very well rounded read that fans of many genres will enjoy. PRE ORDERED THIS BABY Can t wait to get Pritkin and Mircea BACK IN MY LIFE This book wasn t exactly a long time coming but there has been a lot building up to it since the beginning and it hit the mark just perfectly It s the perfect book for dedicated fans of the series For those of us who have been rooting for Cassie and dying to see her coming into her power and strength and owning her new position of authority.And fans of this guy are in for a real treat Format ebookOwnership Own eARC from NetGalley Tags Overarching Story line, Fast Paced, HumorousThemes Love Triangle, Slow Burn RomanceRead reviews and other bookish content on my blog Honestly I just hope mircea doesn t get his way for once I mma still upset when he got exposed and there s a reason it pirtkin all the way Update 7 29 19 I read it and am in my s a bit bittersweet at the end Cassie obviously choose pirtkin victory dance but she s gonna help mircea see his wife Who Cassie is aware he s still in love with Now I can just say we all know some way Cassie will bring her to the present because mircea will not sit back I just really wish mircea sees what s he s missing like your ex helping you get back with your wife is hard tbh But I guess that s why we love the series because we re all invested lol
