Apparently, there had been a plan in place to use the Tears of Apollo on Cassie. After Cassie's vision of Louis-Cesare and Francoise, Rafe became angry with Lous assuming he used the Tears on Cassie. But he had not—he didn't have them there. The vision came from a mere touch. Billy Joe fetches the vial for Cassie. She and Mircea use them to go back to 17th century Carcassonne to rescue Radu and save Louis-Cesare from getting killed by Rasputin.
Author Notes Edit
"First, there’s the issue of the Tears of Apollo, the concoction that showed up in Touch the Dark, but which Cassie didn’t need because of who she was. But the Senate assumed she would need it, because most untrained initiates wouldn’t have been able to manipulate the power at all without help, much less do what she did. Basically, it’s a potion that greatly increases a person’s stamina and, concurrently, their magical ability. Cassie hasn’t been using it because she hasn’t needed it. But it is still there." — Author ~ Cassie Palmer | Karen Chance's Ramblings
