Hunt The Moon by Karen Chance
Book 5 of the Cassandra Palmer series

Genre: adult urban fantasy

About Hunt The Moon:
Cassandra Palmer recently defeated a god, which you'd think would buy a girl a little time off. But it doesn't work that way when your new job description is Pythia — the world's chief clairvoyant. Cassie is busier than ever, trying to learn about her power, preparing for her upcoming coronation, and figuring out her relationship with the enigmatic sexy master vampire, Mircea.

But someone doesn't want Cassie to become Pythia, and is willing to go to any lengths to make sure the coronation ceremony never happens — including attacking her mother before Cassie is even born.

Cassie, the main protagonist is still just slightly stupid to be a little bit annoying but not enough to deter from the overall wonderful reading experience of this book. Besides it seems that it's only Cassie who has the TSTL (too stupid to live) syndrome, because the rest of the cast have well developed characters! In fact I like Pritkin, a secondary character, more than the main protagonist. To the right is a nice image of Pritkin. Karen Chance gave me lots of laugh out loud moments which earned BIG brownie points with me! I credit the wonderful story telling quality as the one responsible for that. Not only is it compelling, it is also humorous! Another brownie point for the humor!! Overall, I enjoyed this book immensely although there were sections I got annoyed with Cassie's TSTL act. However it is not enough to bring the overall score of this book down to the boots, so I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Empirical Evaluation:
Story telling quality = 5
Character development = 4
Story itself = 4.5
Ending = 3.5
World building = 5
Cover art = 3.5
Pace = 4

Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5 cherries
