Review: Twisted Miracles by A.J. Larrieu


Twisted Miracles (The Shadowminds #1) by A.J. Larrieu
Urban Fantasy, Supernatural
Ebook (210 pages, CARINA PRESS)
Cass Weatherfield's powers come with a deadly price.
Cass knows it was her telekinetic gift that killed a college classmate five years back, even if no one else believes her. She's lived in hiding from her fellow shadowminds ever since, plagued by guilt and suppressing her abilities with sedatives. Until the night her past walks back into her life in the form of sexy Shane Tanner, the ex-boyfriend who trained her…and the one she left without saying goodbye.
When Shane tells her that his twin sister, Mina—Cass's childhood friend—is missing, Cass vows to help, which means returning to New Orleans to use her dangerous skills in the search. But finding Mina only leads to darker questions. As Cass and Shane race to learn who is targeting shadowminds, they find themselves drawn to each other, body and soul. Just as their powerful intimacy reignites, events take a terrifying turn, and Cass realizes that to save the people she loves, she must embrace the powers that ruined her life.

A Hidden UF Gem (4 stars)

When Cass Weatherfield's telekinetic gift that killed a classmate five years ago she ran away New Orleans and the family she left behind. Now calling San Francisco home she uses medication to suppress her powers until her childhood friend Mina goes missing and Mina's brother, Shane, comes to beg for her help. Cass doesn't want to use of the shadowmind abilities that should be a natural part of her but for Mina she's willing to try. But returning to New Orleans means reconnecting with Shane and the community of telepaths that had once been her family. With a dangerous mystery to solve and a heat wave of reawakened feelings Cass is going to have to overcome her fears to save the people she loves.

It took me a while to review TWISTED MIRACLES because to be quite honest I liked it but I also found it kind of mentally overwhelming. The shadowmind concept is pretty cool but also some heavy worldbuilding. I would definitely not call this light reading. It's very sexy and very intelligent, one that harcore urban fantasy lovers should check out. I really loved that there was an inter-racial relationship for a change, I wish more authors were writing them into the paranormal and supernatural fiction genres. Shane is my kind of hero and Cass, while frustrating, is not unlikable.

There is big potential for this series though I haven't found many others who've read it so it's a hidden gem in need of some word-of-mouth love. If you like urban fantasy by Stacia Kane, Jenn Bennett, Rachel Vincent, or Devon Monk I think you will really like this one too.
