Touch the Dark is the first book in an urban fantasy series I quite enjoyed. If you enjoy books by Kim Harrison, Kelley Armstrong, Keri Arthur, Patricia Briggs, or Laurell K. Hamilton, I would recommend you give this one a try. I am always thrilled to find a fresh new voice in urban fantasy and I think Karen Chance is just that. I really liked her writing style, very witty and fun to read. I was immediately invested in the heroine's plight; Cassandra Palmer can see into the future and communicate with ghosts. She is also the heir to a powerful legacy of witches. Her parents were murdered when she was child for what she had the potential to become. Cassie was raised by a malicious vampire, Mafioso, who she managed to escape from three years earlier. There is a vampire senate as well with their own agenda, and a very old (and highly intriguing) master vampire. All and all, it was a grand mixture of fun.
I've read the first two books in this series, both were wonderful, and the rest are on my ever-growing pile of books I need to read. I have listed this series below in reading order. I would suggest you do read this series in order.
As always, hope to see you in our library someday soon!
