5.0 out of 5 stars Fall Prey To Passion... April 16 2009
By Jamieson Villeneuve TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Blake Richards is a vampire haunted by the past.

Four years ago, he was forced to either sire Meghan Thomas, making her a vampire, or risk having her die. So he did the only thing he could do and turned her...and lost the only woman he had ever loved.

Though he is still tortured by his love for her, Blake knows that he will have to make it up to her, somehow. And maybe then, she can forgive him...

Angry at having her life taken away from her, Meghan doesn't want anything to do with Blake. She misses her former life, misses what she once was. She is fueled by anger at having her life taken from her, at having the decision made for her.

Meghan is also haunted by the past and can't forget the attraction she felt for Blake, the attraction she still feels for him. Fury fills her every time she thinks of him and yet, she can't stop herself thinking of Blake and the passion they shared.

Both of them must put aside their fury and anger when something threatens the vampire community. Bodies of vampires are found, ravaged beyond recognition.

Blake and Meghan come together to try and find out what is killing others of their kind. During the investigation, the attraction that they feel for each other starts to grow stronger until neither of them can ignore it.

But they are in a race against time. Though no one knows who has been killing the vampires, there are suspicions. And those suspicions begin to fall on Blake.

Meghan must put aside her fury and make a choice: Is Blake the man she could love? Or is he a killer?

If you haven't read the other novels, there is no need to. Pineiro manages to make each novel stand alone as a complete and wonderful story.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars! Feb. 20 2009
By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Blake Richards had never turned anyone until four years ago. He had been overcome by hunger and took too much from Meghan Thomas. To save Meghan, Blake had to change her into a vampire. She has hated him ever since. Now Meghan is a chef at the restaurant, Otro Mundo, which is owned by two other vampires. Blake wants desperately to prove that he is no longer an untrustworthy punk. He even gets a job at Otro Mundo, doing the worst tasks the owners can think up for him, all without a single complaint.

When vampires begin dying in the Manhattan vampire community, the investigation must be swift and justice even swifter, without any humans finding out. (Well, except for a few trusted humans.) A drug equivalent of Ecstasy for vampires has hit the area. It had been outlawed for over a millennia by the vampire elders because the drug's effects are deadly and uncontrollable.

Sun Tze Lee is an Asian vampire, one of the Kiang-shi. They are unlike the typical vampires that have a pulse. They Kiang-shi have no breath, no pulse, no living flesh. They keep themselves oiled so their flesh does not rot off. All Kiang-shi were evil when they lived. After dying, before they are buried, they are reanimated by evil. They care for no one, vampire or human. Sun Tze has plans for those at Otro Mundo and then the world. None of it is good.

***** Let me start this with a warning ... This story has violent sections, including physical violations (male and female). No one under the age of eighteen should read this Dark Fantasy. Having said that, if you do not mind the darker fantasies, then this story rocks! It is obvious from the start who is supplying the drugs, but the author does not really try to keep that a secret.

Of course the tension is thick between the main characters at first, but watching Blake strive to prove himself worthy is humorous, as well as romantic. This author has created a vampire world that is more believable than most of the others on the market. An absolutely fantastic read! *****

1.0 out of 5 stars Violent and not erotic March 31 2009
By Lasha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Until "Fury Calls" I have enjoyed The Calling series by Caridad Pinero, but after this book I will not be buying them anymore. Why? My explanation and review follows - SPOILERS ahead.

The premise of the book is excellent. Bad-boy Blake Richards is overcome is blood lust and turns a young and innocent Meghan Thomas into a vampire like himnself. Four years later their relationship is hot and tempestous as an evil force enters their lives. Cool build-up and a great idea...very poor execution.

First, Blake and Meghan's relationship doesn't seem to be the front-burning story is should have been. Ms. Pinero falls into the trap of trying to explain what all her previous characters from the series are up to and so Meghan and Blake's love story is not front and center as it should have been. I did not feel when I read the book (on a long plane trip from LA to the East Coast) that the two lovers were given enough time to explore their feelings for one another. What could have been an emotional, complex and involved romance story was pushed aside for rape, violence and very bad sterotypes.

If you like rape fantasy stories, then this book is for you. However, I did not enjoy the rapes. Yes, rapes with an -s, as there were more than one. Now when I buy a ROMANCE novel, even in the paranormal genre like Silhouette Nocturne, I still expect a well-written love story between the two main characters, whether it be a m/f story or a m/m story. I got neither with "Fury Calls." The villain of the story, a very poorly written Chinese steroetype rapes one male character repeatedly and then proceeds to have an orgy with three women, while allowing his minions to rape them after he's finished with them. I won't even go into the *graphic* descriptions of violent sexual assualt that occur more than once in the book to more than one person, male and female. I wanted 272 pages of romance and all I got was a few pages of Blake and Meghan's story inertwined with brutal attacks on all the other minor characters in the book.

I don't mind homoerotic stories, but the way Ms. Pineiro wrote every single homosexual encounter in the book (Blake was molested and turned by an older man), Foley is raped many times by the male villain I began to wonder if Ms. Pineiro was homophobic. I am not saying she is, but there was no indication that any gay/bi character in "Fury Calls" was anything more than a pervert or a rapist.

Not every homosexual relationship is brutual and ugly, in fact if you read about Jules Cassidy and Robin Chadwicke's relationship in Suzanne Brockmann's novels, you can truly appeciate that a loving gay relationship can occur in romance stories, even ones where the primary focus is on the male/female leads. Ms. Pineiro could have joined the ground-breaking exploits of Ms. Brockmann by writing a positive homosexual encounter in the story, but all the reader gets is rape, violence and a cliched antagonist.

I felt like I missed out on Blake and Meghan's story. If the writer had focused more on that then describing violent assaults, then this book could have been as good as the others in the series.

Save your money and skip this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fury Calls two vampire lovers together March 6 2009
By Renee C. Mulhare - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this most recent addition to "The Calling" series, Caridad Pinero offers us one of the most credible tales in the series to date. There have been tales of a vampire taking too much from a donor and having to turn the person at the last moment... But what happens afterward?

That accident happened to Meghan Thomas, a small town girl who came to New York City to start a new life; however, she didn't expect that new life would include crossing paths with Blake Richards, a Welsh vampire who was turned in the mid-1800s, and being turned by him when he fed on her a little too exuberantly. Now she has had to reluctantly readjust to being a vampire, a situation she hasn't embraced. But while she may be angry with Blake, she cannot deny that she cares for him and cares enough to join him and several other recurring members of the Blood Bank's clientele in the hunt for a dangerous and mysterious Chinese vampire who seems to have a hand in a series of strange drug-related deaths plaguing the vampire realm...

This has to be one of the best-written of Caridad Pinero's "The Calling": not only is the heroine's discomfort with her new self believable and even heart-breaking. Ms. Pinero has also looked beyond the usual European vampire model to introduce the kiang-shi of China and she hasn't shirked from making Sun-Tze Lee as unpleasant as these Asian vampires are in the original legends. Some may argue this is an Asian stereotype, but considering that the kiang-shi of legend are little more than blood-drinking corpses reanimated by demons, I'd say that Ms. Pinero created an especially creepy and dangerous antagonist. I'm wondering just what she'll bring to her world in her next offering, but I trust it will be something worth waiting for.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent vampire romantic suspense March 8 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Manhattan vampire community is stunned when a couple in bloodlust apparently killed each other in Otro Mundo restaurant in Soho. Blake Reynolds investigates their deaths with the reluctant help of vampiric chef Meghan Thomas who works there. She hates Blake for converting her three years, elven months and ten days ago; but who is counting? Blake and Meghan are.

A loner for a century and a half, Blake loves Meghan but knows he can survive without her for another 150 years. Still he hopes to earn her respect and regard as he has vowed to be more considerate towards lesser species ever since he over indulged with her. His goal is to win her love. However, though attracted to him, she doubts her sire is a one blood woman man even as a serial vampire killer stalks the underground undead of New York.

This excellent vampire romantic suspense stars two vamps in love, but from the first their relationship seems stuck in negativity in spite of the BLOOD CALLS to them. Blake and Meghan are fabulous protagonists who must learn trust if their love is to have meaning and if they are to survive the serial slayer stalker. As always with the "Calling" saga, Caridad Pineiro provides a strong erotic romance filled with plenty of action on the streets of Manhattan and deep characters.
