Claimed by Shadow by Karen Chance

 
April 2007, ROC
374 pgs., Paperback
Personal Copy
Second in Cassandra Palmer Series
 
From Back Cover:
 
A recent legacy made Cassandra Palmer heir to the title of Pythia, the world's chief clairvoyant. It's a position that usually comes with years of training, but Cassie's circumstances are a little...unusual.  Now she's stuck with a whopping amount of power that every vamp, fey, and mage in town wants to either monopolize or eradicate-and that she herself doesn't dare use.
What's more, she's just discovered that a certain arrogant master vampire has a geis on her-a  magical claim that warns off any would-be suitors, and might also explain the rather ... intense attraction between them. But Cassie's had it with being jerked around, and anyone who tries it from now on is going to find out that she makes a very bad enemy...

Opinion

“Claimed by Shadow” is not as good as the first in the series, but it is still very good. When Cassie is brought in front of the vampire council she feels controlled and begins a rampage that takes her through two different worlds and makes her grow into her whole Pythia self. The geis is annoying and I know many other readers agree with this assessment, but it does not hinder the story too much.  Many if not everyone she comes in contact with underestimate her. I recommend this entire series, but keep in mind the first is the best in series so far.
