Clairvoyant Cassie Plamer has inherited new magical powers-including the ability to travel through time. But it's a whole lot of responsibility she'd rather not have. Now she's the most popular girl in town, as an assortment of vamps, fey, and mages try to convince, force, or seduce her-and her magic-over to their side. But one particular master vampire didn't ask what Cassie wanted before putting a claim on her. He had a spell cast that binds her to him, and now she doesn't know if what she feels for him is real-or imagined...

About the Author:

Karen Chance has lived in France, the United Kingdom and Hong Kong, but always comes back to America. She currently lives in Central Florida, the home of make-believe, which may explain a lot.

Review:

A fair maiden tough enough to kick [vampire] butts. -- Rebecca York, USA Today bestselling author Shadow of the Moon

An engaging heroine. -- Kelley Armstrong, USA Today bestselling author of Broken

Like the previous novel, CLAIMED BY SHADOW is a non-stop thrill ride from beginning to end, a wildly entertaining romp with a strong, likeable heroine. The story is fast-paced and barely lets up from the word "go," lightened with plenty of wry humor and more than a dash of romance. In Cassie's last adventure, TOUCH THE DARK, the focus was on vampires. Here, we see more about the mages, especially Cassie's nemesis Pritkin. It's obvious that Chance has even more wonders to reveal, and I am very much looking forward to the next installment of Cassie's adventures. -- Rambles.com

Magic aplenty populates this fast moving, rather dark tale of power, corruption, double-dealings and painful attractions as Cassie comes to grips with her new role in this follow-up to TOUCH THE DARK. It is nice to see a strong, capable heroine taking charge with a kick butt attitude while attempting to balance right and wrong in the face of impossible odds. -- monstersandcritics.com

Ms. Chance is a master at fleshing out her secondary characters and keeping her storyline moving at a lightening fast pace. Cassie remains the funny and smart heroine we came to love in book one. She solves her own problems and trusts her intuition. This is a series well worth getting hooked on. -- FreshFiction.com

The much anticipated sequel to TOUCH THE DARK, CLAIMED BY SHADOW picks up right where Cassie left off in the first book, infused with a power she doesn't want. From tacky Vegas showgirl costumes to moveable tattoo parlors to a zombie Elvis, Karen Chance takes readers on another wild ride with never-ending action. CLAIMED BY SHADOW should not be missed. -- Romance Reviews Today

The second installment of Karen Chance's paranormal fantasy saga to feature psychic Cassandra Palmer (after 2006's Touch the Dark) explores new territory, as the 23-year-old heroine is forced to deal with the unfathomable power -- and danger -- associated with being the heir to the Pythia, the world's most influential clairvoyant. Palmer's newfound position makes her a prime target for supernatural factions (vampires, the Fey, mages, etc.) looking to monopolize -- or simply destroy -- her powers. To complicate matters, Palmer learns that someone, most likely a 500-year-old master vampire who happens to be Dracula's older brother, has put a "geis" on her, a magical bond that not only deters any potential suitors but also makes Palmer irrationally attracted to her supernatural subjugator. But when she vows to remove the geis, she finds herself an unwilling pawn in the middle of a dangerous power play...

Blending contemporary fantasy, romance, and horror into an appetizing literary amalgam, the crossover appeal of Chance's Cassie Palmer saga will undoubtedly find a more than welcoming audience with fans of authors like Laurell K. Hamilton, Kim Harrison, and Charlaine Harris. Chance's left-of-center sense of humor -- in particular, bastardized Latin one-liners like "stercus accidit" -- makes this relatively lighthearted series a fast-paced and highly entertaining read.-Paul Goat Allen -- Explorations SF/F Reviews
