The 5th book in the Cassie Palmer series. Cassie is just days away from the ceremony confirming her as Pythia but her enemies simply see this as a reason to up their attacks upon her and if that doesn't work, go after her mother to ensure that Cassie is never born. Ain't time travel grand? Now Cassie is facing attacks in her own time and constantly being pulled into other times to try and save her mother as well. The confusing part is where are all the attacks coming from now that she is on good terms with the Circle and Apollo vanquished? Jonas, the new head of the Circle, has a theory on that and if he's right that means even more gods and demi-gods are going to gunning for her and if they win, it will bring about the end of the world. No pressure or anything Cassie.
Started a bit slow but by half-way through it was impossible to put down. Lots of backstory on Cassie, Mircea, and Pritkin which was nice after all the hints we've gotten up til now. Cassie at the end is finally catching on to what all this means for her and seems to be growing up quite a bit and being much less the ditz of the day and more the Pythia she can be. I'm really looking forward to seeing how things progress in the next book but at this point since I'm caught up in the series, I'm going to have to wait a bit. *pout*
