Présentation de l'éditeur

After years of denial, Cass Weatherfield has finally accepted her telekinetic gifts. Living with her boyfriend, Shane, has given her the confidence to be herself, but the fear of losing control and harming those around her is always present.

Knowing firsthand the hell of growing up without a mentor, she agrees to meet and help Diana, a young Shadowmind. But when Cass shows up, the terrified woman changes her mind and flees. Cass and Shane track her across New Orleans, and soon discover that Diana is being held against her will by an illicit organization that's selling her rare clairvoyant skills to the highest bidder. In charge is an ancient creature more powerful than any they've ever encountered. And apparently she wants Shane dead.

Cass and Shane work to free Diana. But as Cass uses more and more power, drawing it from her friends in the fight against evil, she feels an addictive pull that challenges her control. And, in the end, Cass may be the greatest threat to those she loves the most.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Continuation of a Unique Louisiana Urban Fantasy Series 28 septembre 2014

Like Twisted Miracles the major positive of Dangerous Calling is the world of paranormals (And this is set in Louisiana, centering on New Orleans and even venturing into Baton Rouge this book!). We were introduced to shadowminds in Twisted Miracles, and in Dangerous Calling we get a few more paranormal creatures. I really enjoyed Diana and Ian and wish that we would have learned more about them, especially more about their personalities. I feel like we got more of a rough sketch of them rather than full characters.

One of the main reasons that I enjoyed Twisted Miracles was that it didn’t involve the normal paranormal beings - vampires, werewolves, fairies, etc. Shadowminds were a little bit psychic and a little bit something else. So, I was more than a little disappointed when a vampire popped up in Dangerous Calling. And, not just any vampire, but the most clichéd vampire - super strength and Freddie Kruger unstoppable.

I feel like the introduction of the new characters and paranormal creatures had the world building take more of back burner. I had a lot of questions about the shadowminds at the end of Twisted Miracles, and although a few of them were answered, there were still a lot of unanswered questions at the end of Dangerous Calling. Although there does seem to be a larger story arc which could answer those questions, and I like where the story arc is going. I also like that although there is a "healer" among the shadowminds, the main characters are not invincible and can be seriously, even fatally, hurt.

There were also a few plot points that annoyed me in the beginning, but by the middle of Dangerous Calling, the plot and pacing leveled out and I began to enjoy myself again. Mostly I just thought that the author added in some plot elements that were unnecessary just to advance a certain storyline. The really annoying moments only induced eye rolling and not putting the book down.

I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series. I know I'm spoiled that both of the first two books released this year, because I was surprised and sad to find out that there is no release date or information on the next book. But while searching around for more information on the author and series I realized that I need to check out more books from Carina Press. I didn't realize that Carina was one of Harlequin's digital first imprints. Although I've only read Larrieu's books from the press, I've liked what I've read so far.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Wow -- this series is really becoming one of my favorites. The characters are witty, gritty, and awesome. The story had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Oh, and the shocking events! It's really nice to be surprised in a book every now and then.

Cass and Shane are still the same great couple we saw at the end of the last book, with Cass struggling to find a balance between using her powers and becoming an addict. Of course, she doesn't really share her fears with Shane. Typical girl book problem that usually comes back to bite them. Relationship drama aside, this book centers around Diana, a girl that calls Cass asking for help but runs away before she can give it. This doesn't stop Cass from finding out where the girl lives and diving right in.

We get to see a lot more of the bad guys emerge in this story, including creatures we haven't seen before. The writing style makes it easy to get completely absorbed and tear through a large portion of the book in one sitting. The blend of action, romance, and mystery was absolutely perfect.

A lot of plot of the original book comes into play in this second installment, so I'd highly recommend that you pick up the first book before starting this one. The world of the "Shadowminds" is beautifully built and keeps getting better and better. The romance isn't fluffy HEA type romance -- instead you get a couple who acts just about as "real" as you can get (you know, assuming having mental powers still counts as real). You have to really work to get a happy ending in this world, and I appreciate that.

Review Courtesy All Things Urban Fantasy

Second books are always a little bit of a gamble, and if it’s a second books in a trilogy double that. So I started DANGEROUS CALLING with a little trepidation but hopes for the best. I’m pleased to say that it more than met my expectations. In fact, it exceeded them.

Everything I loved about Twisted Miracles was back, and then some. The characters I loved, and even a few new ones that I really, really loved. Susannah is back in her full brash glory and there’s a new Guardian, Ian, who really takes the snarky, piss-off Guardian attitude to a whole new level. There’s another new character that I don’t want to say too much about for spoiler reasons, but I loved that she was allowed to be what she was rather than a prettified version of it.

The plotline for DANGEROUS CALLING is a strong one and drew me in from the very first. I was drawn in from the start by the action – and there is a lot of action, not all of it pretty. The heart of the story, though, is Cass’ fight against her newly discovered power. I liked the way it was written like an addiction and I really felt her struggle against the pull and sometimes what she can do with it is just a little scary. I also liked that it drew a parallel – that magic, whatever form it takes, comes with a price and that sometimes the price is worth paying.

I’m definitely on board for the third in the series and can’t wait to jump back into Cass and Shane’s world.

The second book in The Shadowminds series delivers some telekinetic badassery with a side of WTF?!? awesomeness. Yeah, I like twists and turns in my books. Especially when I can't see how things are going to work out in the end. Honestly, I couldn't figure out how everyone could end up in a good place as the action amped up. Things were intense. I'm not talking about just the physical danger to Cass and the others either. When someone who can see the future tells you that VERY BAD THINGS ARE COMING unless you find a way to change course, you do what you have to do to protect those you love.

And very bad are things are coming for Cass. Her power is addictive. Her friends are paying a high price in the situation she gets tangled up in. She's torn between the life she's carved for herself and the potential danger she's bringing to them with what she can do.

Hard decisions have to be made.

We get a deeper look into the idea of Guardians and how they're brought into being. We get to see the fallout for those that survived book 1. So much potential was introduced here it's making my head spin. In a good way. *thumbs up*

The urban fantasy genre can get a little stale so when I discovered the first Shadowminds book I was eager to see if Larrieu could put something new into it. If you're a fan of the more psychic type stuff it's a great read and the first book really establishes the world... or so I thought. DANGEROUS CALLING was like biting into a doughnut expecting a cream center and finding jelly, everything you think you know gets bigger!

It's sexier, sadder, and action-packed. A couple of new characters come in and the scope of Cass and Shane's future shifts. I feel like everything I type is going to be a spoiler to be honest because that much happens and the world-building went from a fairly narrow place to being very, very open to possibilities.

If you've not yet read TWISTED MIRACLES you really should not start here but if you did and didn't quite love it I think you'll find the pacing of DC more enjoyable. Larrieu is definitely an author to watch.

Notes: ARC received via NetGalley.
