    Call of Fire is the second installment in author Beth Cato's Blood of Earth series. Call of Fire picks up where Breath of Earth left off.  It has been an awful week for protagonist Ingrid Carmichael. As the world's only female Geomancer, she has watched her city of San Francisco be destroyed by a major earthquake. A group of geomancer's she knew well was murdered, and her mentor Sakaguchi was hurt badly and has disappeared. The plus has been that she's found herself on a quest alongside an eclectic and diverse group of friends from Cy Jennings, Fenris Braun, to Lee Fong who is more than who he appears to be.

    The dangerous misadventures of Ingrid, Cy, and the rest of their charismatic team continue in the sequel to Breath of Earth. This time, they run from the disaster of San Fran and hope to find safety elsewhere--but Ambassador Blum has other ideas.

    Just as thrilling as the first (and with a dash of delicious romance), Cato's second novel in this world is a suspenseful punch in the gut that you'll be unable to put down. Cy is and probably always will be my favorite character, mostly because I have

    The dangerous misadventures of Ingrid, Cy, and the rest of their charismatic team continue in the sequel to Breath of Earth. This time, they run from the disaster of San Fran and hope to find safety elsewhere--but Ambassador Blum has other ideas.

    Just as thrilling as the first (and with a dash of delicious romance), Cato's second novel in this world is a suspenseful punch in the gut that you'll be unable to put down. Cy is and probably always will be my favorite character, mostly because I have a crush on this sexy, Southern gent. But Ingrid is amazing, as well: a strong, fiery young woman whose brave actions deserve a standing ovation.

    Full of action, excitement, comedy, and love, this steampunk series has everything going for it.

    The already detailed and complete alternate history of America becomes even more layered in the second installment of this series. I love the additions of new cities and new historical characters, especially Theodore Roosevelt. I looked forward to his introduction since the moment he was mentioned in the first book and the author didn't disappoint.

    Once again we are in the world where Japan and America are united with America being the weaker of the two partners. We meet new fantastic creatures a

    The already detailed and complete alternate history of America becomes even more layered in the second installment of this series. I love the additions of new cities and new historical characters, especially Theodore Roosevelt. I looked forward to his introduction since the moment he was mentioned in the first book and the author didn't disappoint.

    Once again we are in the world where Japan and America are united with America being the weaker of the two partners. We meet new fantastic creatures and are taken deeper into the backstory of Ingrid and Cy, learning more of their nemesis Ambassador Blum. The racist persecution of the Chinese seems fitting with the intolerance in our current world--a lesson to be absorbed. And the magic of the earth is a unique set up.

    Though it did leave many unresolved threads, the second book is better than the first as I got closer to the characters this go round.
