Présentation de l'éditeur

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author, Deanna Chase, brings you the first book in the Crescent City Fae series.

It’s tough being a faery in New Orleans, a city fraught with vampires… especially when their very existence drains your life-force.

Willow Rhoswen, owner of The Fated Cupcake and part-time vampire hunter for the Void is having a rough week. Four years after her twin brother’s mysterious death, Willow’s life is threatened and the director saddles her with a new partner—her ex-boyfriend, David. To her horror, he’s turned vamp, which causes her physical pain whenever she touches him… and any other specimen of the undead.

In order to save Willow’s life, David agrees to turn double agent against the most powerful vampire organization in New Orleans. Or so he says. And she’s convinced they know something about her brother’s death. Unsure where David’s loyalties lie, she turns to Talisen, her childhood crush, to help her solve the mystery.

Caught between two gorgeous men and a director who’ll stop at nothing to control Willow’s gifts, she’ll have to follow her instincts and learn who to trust. Otherwise, she risks losing more than just her life.

I actually purchased this book as part of a bundle called Magic After Dark and had to look up the author so that I could write a review. Especially after I saw how many high reviews it received. If you are a fan of Urban Para/Sci-Fi/Fantasy than you know this book. With a too stupid too live "heroine" with extremely rigid morals bumbling her way through a million and one supposed plot twist that you can see coming a mile away. Wait - you mean the bad guy was actually not bad and was actually a patsy for the real bad guy that will appear later in the series? No way! You mean to tell me the guy she's liked forever and who has acted irrationally the entire book actually likes her too and ask her out on a date on the last page? Get out! Even though the main character has made naive and undeniably stupid decisions, cannot take care of herself- her crew still follows her lead - cause she's pretty, has wings and guess what, she bakes! The main character is a sheltered moron and I couldn't get past that. I've never been a fan of the bumbling idiot heroine but there too many better written versions for anyone to have to suffer through this. If you are looking for a slightly dumb baking magical person, I suggest Meghan Diodge's Dowser series

Influential Magic

Crescent City Fae – Book One

by Deanna Chase

Review by d c mallory

4 out of 5 stars

Have you ever wondered how the world would be if the supernatural species were out of the closet? Have you wondered how they would police their own kind, since they would obviously be more than the human police could handle? And how would all the different species interact with one another?

In this book, Influential Magic, which is the first book in a new series called Crescent City Fae, Deanna Chase gives us her views on this subject.

This book is not young adult, but I would think it could be read by anyone sixteen years and older. It is in the Urban Fantasy genre.

I was first introduced to Deanna Chase and her writing though the Jade Calhoun series. While both of these series deal with supernatural creatures in New Orleans, this book’s main topic are the Fae. While I enjoy the Jade Calhoun series, I believe the Crescent City Fae will be the better series of the two.

With the supernaturals falling under an entity known as the “Arcane,” and the Vampires holding the upper hand of all the races, there is friction created right off the bat. Throw in a Fae woman who was gifted above her fellows in senses dealing with the Arcane, an old murder dealing with her twin brother, and a twisted plot filled with betrayal and deceit from all parties involved, and you have Influential Magic. And, of course, we must not leave out the form-shifting Shih Tzu.

There were several different goals in this book that the author had to try to successfully meet. As in any book of this nature, the characters and the individual plots were all woven together to become a sort of gestalt in the sense that one could not have existed without the other; all the individual pieces made up the whole of the story.

We first have to deal with the love triangle that comes into play shortly into the book. The two men, Talisen – her murdered brother’s best friend, and David, her ex-lover who was turned while she was away, are introduced early in the first chapter, and as the story progresses the fact that both of the men are interested in her becomes plainly clear. As with any love scenario of this sort, both men have to have pros and cons as far as the intended is concerned, and that is certainly the case here. In the end, the triangle is sorted out, if not completely, at least enough for Willow, our heroine, to set her course by.

The Arcane, the organization that Willow works part time for, is at the heart of the conspiracy on the direction Willow’s life takes. It is obvious that there are many things involved that are out of the ordinary, and shouldn’t be happening. One example of this is the partnering of Willow – a member of the Fae, with a Vampire. This was never done, and it spoke of dangerous things to come. On top of this, a sort of Vampire-mob family, run by a master by the name of Eadric, claims to want to protect Willow from the circumstances that are gathering against her to end her existence. Eadric also has a sort of pull over the Arcane organization, and is able to get them to do things that should not be allowed to happen. Deanna successfully blends these separate issues together so they they all end up interacting in such a way that the reader finds it believable.

The world Deanna weaves is plausible, and since the story takes place in New Orleans, she can mix in the down-home Southern idiosyncrasies along with the actual quirks of the city, throwing in the local landmarks to make the story and it’s inhabitants all seem credible.

In conclusion, I would just like to say that, in my opinion, the story was well thought out and well written. The characters were fleshed out in such a way that they did not seem superficial, and the location of the story was good. All of the characters were depicted in such a way that the good guys were good, the questionable were iffy, and the bad were bad – or were they?

This is a fun read, and one that most of us who love the Urban Fantasy genre would be more than satisfied with reading. Whether or not I’m right in my assumption that this will be the better of her two series is conjecture on my part; you’ll have to read both series to decide for yourself on if I’m right or wrong. I, for one, look forward to the second book of the series, coming out in October of 2013.

This is another book I really wanted to enjoy. New Orleans with an out-of-the-closet paranormal population (and not just vampires, who are becoming a genre cliché), a convoluted plot, a shih-tzu puppy that morphs into a wolf... What's not to like?

The "heroine". The lead character spends most of her time whining, some of it getting aggressive with vampire ringleaders who could break her in two even if she wasn't allergic to them (rather than treating them with a modicum of respect, and thus getting far more accomplished),and the rest of it bitching at people who might actually be willing to help her if she'd just get off her high horse and listen, something she is apparently incapable of. This is a character I wouldn't want to have a cup of coffee with-- why would I want to spend a couple of hours or more listening to her narration of a plot that isn't all that interesting to begin with?

She wasn't even really a baker-- she was some sort of Fae food scientist, working in a laboratory behind the bakery she owned. Among other things, she devised a narcotic additive for baked goods that falls into the wrong hands early in the book... what's never made clear is why she made it in the first place if she doesn't believe it should be used, or why after doing so she then informed her controlling and manipulative boss, who forced her to keep making them or else have the recipe be given to an unscrupulous competitor? Huh? Why invent it if she didn't think it should be made, and why tell her abusive boss after doing so? Either it's just a meaningless 'plot advancer' we shouldn't take seriously (in which case it shouldn't be in the book), or else our protagonist has less brains than the yeast she bakes with. Either way, this free book is way overpriced.

I managed to read the first nine short chapters or so. I'll give Deanna Chase credit: she writes far more grammatically than many of her peers, and without the egregious vocabulary errors that so many independently published authors are prone to make (why is it so hard to understand how to use rains, reins, and reigns?). She gets a second star for that. Her craftsmanship is fine... I just wish she'd come up with a better protagonist.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Deanna Chase has created characters and placed them in the steam heat of New Orleans, both shine in this story. 31 mars 2013

Format: Broché
Welcome to New Orleans, the early adopter of all things new and different in the United States (Remember Jazz?). In a reimagined world where the paranormal are no longer in the closet, Willow has a successful bakery that sells `enhanced' treats that she uses her fae talents as a life-force faerie to bring desired results. Her second, and most dangerous job is as an agent for the Arcane, the governmental entity charged with maintaining order and keeping paranormals in check. Her challenge? She is able to sense vampires in the area, making her the ideal partner for her roommate, the witch vampire hunter Phoebe, also Willow's best friend.

Add in some vampires, good and bad, a love triangle, an evil faerie Aunt and a genealogical link that will threaten Willow's life as it killed her twin brother Beau, and you have the makings of a rollicking good ride. With multiple interwoven stories that start off a bit confusing and quickly draw you in to take sides with different characters, this is the start of what I expect will be one of my favorite series. It isn't marked as a YA read, but is appropriate for YA readers of 16 or better - and they will appreciate it as much as I did.

Oh - and I almost forgot to mention, Willow has a shifter sidekick, Link. Masquerading as an ordinary 20 lb Shih-Tzu, he can shift into LARGE wolf form when Willow is agitated or needs protecting. If that isn't perfect typecasting for a small breed dog with great aspirations, I don't know what is!

Deanna Chase has created characters and placed them in the steam heat of New Orleans, both shine in this story. While Willow often doubts herself and her abilities, her belief about right and wrong never waver, and she is often the calming influence in the midst of the hot-headed people who surround her. The men in her life are solidly portrayed, and her best friend Phoebe of the many costumes and faces is someone that everyone would like to know.

I can't wait to read the rest of this series, and now will have to go check out the author's other series featuring Jade Calhoun!

I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review as part of the Indies Rock Promotion at I am, Indeed. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Oh boy. Apparently I've done something right lately. Or maybe Luck/Fate decided I needed some cheering up, because seriously - whichever book I decide to read at the moment is more than just a great read. Influential magic is one of those. To tell you the truth; please keep it that way!! Promise to behave if you do! :-)

We are thrown into the story right when Willow is about to leave her mother and go back to New Orleans, her childhood friend Talisen is saying goodbye to her in the airport. There's always been a spark between Talisen and Willow, but neither has responded to it, mainly out of respect for Beau's (Willow's twin brothers) memory. And to be frank, Willow likes Talisen (a lot), but she's seen what kind of playboy he is, never keeping anything serious with a girl, and she don't want (or need) to get her heart broken like that. Besides, she's barely over David - her latest boyfriend, who didn't even have the courage to end it with her face-to-face, but texted her. Yup, ladies - you read right. He TEXTED her. And they dated for a YEAR. What a guy, huh?

It turns out David have a very good reason for doing that to Willow, but that's a different story. Anyways... When Willow comes back home, she is instantly thrown into a mission to help her partner (BFF & roommate), Phoebe tracking down a vampire. Turns out, the vampire wants something neither of them contemplated; Willow. And all this puts things into motion; losing her partner (Phoebe), gaining a new one (her ex, David), stepping into vampire territory (due to work) and trying to negate the treacherous waters of two gorgeous men, vampires, politics and her own handiwork from her bakery. Sometimes all a girl need is a five minute break to think. Just once in a while.

As I stated earlier, I'm on a roll with good books, Influential Magic not being an exception. I had a seriously rough time putting it down, it took me for such a spin. Just when you thought you had something figured out - another curveball came flying out of nowhere and you were left standing somewhere entirely else than you thought.

The whole David/vampire & Talisen/Fae dilemma was wonderful. Especially since something very unexpected happens to David, but I can honestly tell you; it was the right thing that happened in the end - for me anyway. Well, technically for Willow - but you get my point.

This book was (to me), a delicious read, spiced with twists and turns and enough drama to keep me on the edge - and falling over a few times. I loved it and would recommend it in a heartbeat. Willows personality, her belief in the greater good in people, David's "betrayal", Talin's protectiveness, Phoebe's open mouthed "Do I look like I give a damn?" attitude, all came together nicely and created a tale I want to go back to, more than once.

Deanna has created a wonderful story and I can't wait to read more about Willow, Link (her pup), Phoebe, David and Talisen. Wonderful read!
