Read Call of Fire (Blood of Earth, #2) Online Free - 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 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...

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 mentione...

Thanks to a Goodreads Giveaway I had the joy of reading a galley copy months before this book is released! YAY GOODREADS!
Call of Fire picks up right where Breath of Earth left off--and I mean *right* where. We are instantly thrown into post-earthquake chaos and follow Ingrid and crew int...

Be warned; this starts out as the last book ended so if you have not read book one you will be very lost. Ingrid, Cy, Lee, and Fenris have escaped San Francisco but are still in danger. The mix of history as we know it and history in a steampunk world is still very interesting. Cato even has a li...

Beth Cato's "Call of Fire" is the second book in a series that started with "Breath of Earth," and it delivers in much the same way that "Empire Strikes Back" delivered after "A New Hope." It is darker, broader in scope, and takes the characters deeper, all while maintaining the adventurous tone...

Call of Fire by Beth Cato
Repeating my self from my previous review. An alternative world setting in 1906 provides the scene. Women are treated in a despicable fashion that sadly was pretty much true in that time period's reality. One of the things I liked about this book was that Cato based her s...

This is the second book in the Breath of Earth series; I got it through Edelweiss to review. I really really loved Breath of Earth. Unfortunately for some reason Call of Fire really fell flat for me; there was just too much war and rioting and running from place to place.
Ingrid and crew are flee...

I won this book in a Goodreads-Giveaway, and this is my honest review.
I thought this book was amazing. All of the characters continue to grow, becoming more morally gray as the story takes them deeper into the war between the U.S./Japan and China. Ingrid is a black female geomancer, in an alterna...

Beth Cato's sequel to her wonderful "Breath of Earth" is every bit as delightful and creative as the first book. Cato continues to explore a world built around an original magical concept, in which 'geomancers' harness and channel the subterranean energy of the Earth in order to protect humanity...
