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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Now that could be the intended market the author is trying to target and if so then I am sure that younger age group will really enjoy it.
For me it lacked substance and a real connection to the characters. Flitting from one scene to the next without every having time to get to know any of them. Flighty and bubbly all rolled into one.
Having a Shih Tzu that shifts is a new one. It is a cute but odd option to have it shift into something fierce and dangerous. The main character is torn between two love interests and wanting to find out who killed her twin brother. Mix in two supernatural species trying to gain the upper hand in a scientific twist with the main character as the solution to all their troubles and you get this light-hearted read.
I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley.
