Publisher's Summary

Being a goddess is a lot less fun than you might think. Especially when you're only a half goddess, you only found out about it recently, and you still don't know what you're doing half the time. And when you've just used your not-so-reliable powers to burglarize the booby-trapped office of a vampire mob boss.
Yeah, that part sucks. But that's just the tip of the iceberg for Cassandra Palmer, aka the Pythia, the freshly minted chief seer of the supernatural world. After all, Cassie still has to save a friend from a fate worse than death, deal with an increasingly possessive master vampire, and prevent a party of her own acolytes from unleashing a storm of fury upon the world. Totally just your average day at the office, right?

Still Good, Even with the Narrator Change

I've noticed that even the best narrators receive less than complimentary reviews when they take over narration in the middle of a series, and trying to follow up Cynthia Holloway is even more of a challenge. (Check out the negative reviews of the replacement narrators for the Chicagoland Vampire series or the Morganville Vampire series if you're curious) For loyal fans of this audiobook series it will probably be hard to adjust, especially since the stories are written in first-person. Allyson Ryan does a better than average job, although I found the way she kept pronouncing "stalactite" like 'stale-LICK-tite' bizarre and distracting.

Karen Chance's writing is superb and I really enjoyed this story. It seems that every book has explored a new aspect and/or faction of the supernatural world she has created. She's focused vampires, mages, ghosts, seers, mythological deities, and now demons. This, along with an awesome cast of secondary characters makes for an always entertaining read (or listen).

It's definitely not my favorite book of the series, but I don't know how much of that is due to the narrator switch. I don't think I can be impartial, since Holloway has always been one of my favorite narrators. Tempt the Stars is definitely worth a credit and I already eagerly anticipating Chance's next release.

Got thrown a loop

I love the series so having all the books helped me keep this one. I did not like the narrator. She did not, not, not, sound right. Also, where was Mircea??? Love Pritkin but we have to solve the thing with Mircea first...
