CWW: Brave The Tempest by Karen Chance


Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. 
Generally, they're books that have yet to be released. 
It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.


Brave The Tempest by Karen Chance



Pritkin! My lovely prickly war mage is back with his powers completely unconstrained! How excited am I?!!
I actually cannot wait to see what is next in Cassie's adventures, how the dynamic with her and Pritkin changes and I'm crossing every appendage I have that Mircea gets eaten in the Fae realm.
(Yep, I detest him, sue me Mircea shippers!)


Cassie Palmer has been the chief seer of the supernatural world for a little over four months. In that time, she's battled two gods, fallen in love with two men, and confronted the two sides of her own nature, both god and human. So it's not surprising that she currently finds herself facing two adversaries, although they have a single purpose: to wipe out the supernatural community's newest fighting force, leaving it vulnerable to enemies in this world and beyond.

To prevent catastrophe, the vamps, mages, and demons will have to do the one thing they've never managed before and come together as allies. Cassie has the difficult task of keeping the uneasy coalition intact, and of persuading her own two opposing forces, a powerful mage with a secret and a master vampire with a growing obsession, to fight at her side. She just hopes they can do it without tearing each other apart. 

What's getting you excited this week?

  2. I read lots of Karen Chance's books a number of years ago and then lost track of her. I think I need to start at the beginning and read them again!

    1. At one point, there was a HUGE gap between books. It was frustrating. She's been publishing regularly over the past few years and the wait will hopefully get even smaller between books (i.e less than a year) since this is the last traditional published book and she's finishing the series self-pub.

  3. I have some of her books on my shelves but have not read one. This series does sound good and I can totally related to wanting the demise of a character (or two...or even three).

    1. I think this is a series that grows on you. Book one was my least favourite by a mile.

    1. There's a lot to catch up on! I need to read the Dory series as they seem to compliment/intersect each other but I've only read the first one of those, I think.

    1. It's a crazy series but I really do like it. It's not the kind of thing you can jump in at any point though. :/ Need to start at the beginning but that just means more bookish goodness, right?!

    1. Sadly, Chance doesn't seem to be all that known/visable but she's fun.

  10. Oh I love books like this that combine the different supernatural types into one story! You may enjoy Fortuna Sworn too. I just read it and enjoyed it a ton. ❤️

  12. I never really took to the author when I tried her books many years ago though it was more about the MCs than any issue with the writing. I'm glad you're really enjoying this series though!

    1. I didn't when I first tried them either which was when the first book released. However, I went back to them a few years later (I think when they'd hit book 4/5) and took to them quickly. Mostly because there was more of the mage Pritkin who is the best character in the entire series... Him and Cassie as a duo are hilarious.

    1. They're mad. However, they're super low on romance... Especially in the beginning.

  14. I've been in to urban fantasy lately, and this looks like a good series! Plus I love the cover!
