Precog in Peril by Theo Fenraven ~ Review by Brandilyn

I have found a new favorite couple to add to my list.  I recently had the pleasure of reading Precog in Peril from Theo Fenraven, and Cooper and Gray are possibly the cutest couple ever.  It is a bundled release of the 3 current Voodoo Lily Press novellas in the series of the same name – Three of Swords, Knight of Wands, and The Lightning Struck Tower.  Precog in Peril  is one you do not want to miss.

From the Publisher

Gray Vecello meets Cooper Key, and the adventure of a lifetime begins as they explore the river on the houseboat Gray’s grandfather left him in his will. Along the way, they will meet new friends and dangerous enemies.

Three of Swords: An old houseboat, a hot young guy, a couple of murders, and more mysterious keys than you can shake a stick at: it’s an adventure Gray Vecello and Cooper Key will never forget. Gray has the sight, just as Graham had, but will it be enough to save them both?

Knight of Wands: Gray Vecello and Cooper Key are back in the exciting sequel to Three of Swords. Graham’s treasure is only the tip of the iceberg as a thief helps himself to a hidden stash of cash, Jolly Roger makes another appearance, and the guys finally meet others with special abilities when an emergency meeting of the group is called.

Accompanying them on this new adventure is Gray’s cousin, Harper, who’s having problems of her own. Peace and quiet will have to wait as they take another trip downriver on their houseboat, The Constant Companion, before flying to New York City to beard a lion in his den and unexpectedly meet the SOS.

The Lightning Struck Tower: Gray Vecello and Cooper Key are back in the last book in the Precog in Peril series. Snatched by PsiOps, a covert arm of the government, they’re offered training in exchange for their psionic help. Will they take the deal, and if they don’t, what will PsiOps do to them?

Gray and Cooper meet new friends and enemies in this final chapter in the trilogy. The story takes the reader from New York City to Ely, Minnesota, and back to Gray and Cooper’s marina in Red Wing, where they will face the ultimate test of their powers. Someone will live… and someone will die.

My View

This is my first Theo Fenraven novel (I have read shorts from him).  I guess, technically, it isn’t a novel; it is 3 separate novellas.  That being said, if I had to read them with month(s) in between, I might have just had a fit.  The first 2 parts end on cliff hangers, so you need all 3 for the full story.  As I said earlier, Gray and Cooper have been added to my list of favorite literary couples (don’t ask me for the list, it is all mental 😉 ), but Precog is more that just a cute couple.  Fenraven has a gift with both words and world-building, alike.

I was pulled into Gray’s world from the first paragraph.  I could empathize with him, even though I couldn’t relate to him.  Cooper and Gray complement each other on so many levels. I love that Fenraven isn’t afraid to give his characters real, and frankly unsexy, flaws.  I love that Gray recognizes a good thing when he sees it and only lets his doubts slow him for moments.  I love that the romantic relationship was an element of the world, not the main plot.

Precog is not a romance story; it is a contemporary paranormal mystery that happens to have some romance.   The story made me want to be there on the river with them.  It made me want to go out and buy a houseboat.  It made me want powers of my own.  It made me lose loads of sleep.  Everything a good story should do.

  1. I’m STILL reading it and I’m tickled you don’t give spoilers! This is not my first time reading Theo’s words, so I already knew I would love it. I’m just mad I don’t have unlimited reading time!! I agree with you – I was sucked in with the first few pages. Can’t wait to see how it plays out. And, yeah, I want a houseboat now, too!

  2. I’ve been waiting for this review after seeing you lose sleep over the book…..okay I’m sold, will have to pick up now.

  3. Sounds like a great read. I like a book were an author an pull readers into that world and make readers feel lose to the characters.

  4. I was lucky enough to win a copy of this trilogy. 🙂 I’m hoping to start it this weekend – so looking forward to it especially after your terrific review.
