Early Review: Call of Fire by Beth Cato

Aug 4, 2017

When an earthquake devastates San Francisco in an alternate 1906, the influx of geomantic energy nearly consumes Ingrid Carmichael. Bruised but alive, the young geomancer flees the city with her friends, Cy, Lee, and Fenris. She is desperate to escape Ambassador Blum, the cunning and dangerous bureaucrat who wants to use Ingrid’s formidable powers to help the Unified Pacific—the confederation of the United States and Japan—achieve world domination. To stop them, Ingrid must learn more about the god-like magic she inherited from her estranged father—the man who set off the quake that obliterated San Francisco.

When Lee and Fenris are kidnapped in Portland, Ingrid and Cy are forced to ally themselves with another Ambassador from the Unified Pacific: the powerful and mysterious Theodore Roosevelt. But even TR’s influence may not be enough to save them when they reach Seattle, where the magnificent peak of Mount Rainier looms. Discovering more about herself and her abilities, Ingrid is all too aware that she may prove to be the fuse to light the long-dormant volcano . . . and a war that will sweep the world. 


Call of Fire continues exactly where Breath of Fire left us. Ingrid and her friends are in search of a sanctuary, far from the dangers San Francisco holds. Romance blooms as Ingrid and Cy continue their journey.  Call of Fire delves deeper into the characters. Ingrid continues to learn the depths of her powers.  Soon the crew find themselves coming face to face with the enemy they were running from.   Cato continues to weave in amazing historical tidbits and well as magical allure.  I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
