Synopsis (Goodreads):
After years of denial, Cass Weatherfield has finally accepted her telekinetic gifts. Living with her boyfriend, Shane, has given her the confidence to be herself, but the fear of losing control and harming those around her is always present.

Knowing firsthand the hell of growing up without a mentor, she agrees to meet and help Diana, a young Shadowmind. But when Cass shows up, the terrified woman changes her mind and flees. Cass and Shane track her across New Orleans, and soon discover that Diana is being held against her will by an illicit organization that’s selling her rare clairvoyant skills to the highest bidder. In charge is an ancient creature more powerful than any they’ve ever encountered. And apparently she wants Shane dead.

Cass and Shane work to free Diana. But as Cass uses more and more power, drawing it from her friends in the fight against evil, she feels an addictive pull that challenges her control. And, in the end, Cass may be the greatest threat to those she loves the most.
Thoughts on Dangerous Calling: The second book in The Shadowminds series delivers some telekinetic badassery with a side of WTF?!? awesomeness. Yeah, I like twists and turns in my books. Especially when I can't see how things are going to work out in the end. Honestly, I couldn't figure out how everyone could end up in a good place as the action amped up. Things were intense. I'm not talking about just the physical danger to Cass and the others either. When someone who can see the future tells you that VERY BAD THINGS ARE COMING unless you find a way to change course, you do what you have to do to protect those you love.

And very bad are things are coming for Cass. Her power is addictive. Her friends are paying a high price in the situation she gets tangled up in. She's torn between the life she's carved for herself and the potential danger she's bringing to them with what she can do.

Hard decisions have to be made.

We get a deeper look into the idea of Guardians and how they're brought into being. We get to see the fallout for those that survived book 1. So much potential was introduced here it's making my head spin. In a good way. *thumbs up*
