The Calling starts off right where The gathering left off, Maya and Daniel just escaped from a forest fire and are on a helicopter flying out of town with five friends and the mayor. But they are not out of danger when their helicopter crashes and the teens realize someone is chasing after them! They must survive the forest and not get caught before they can find someone they can trust.
Even though it
starts off with a lot of action, the story starts to lull as they
continuously walk through the forest. You don't get a real feel for the
characters when something happens to them. There feels like a huge
disconnect the entire story. It was an easy read so I was able to get
through it without getting to bored, but the story line didn't really
peak my interest.
This book does answer a lot of questions from
the first book. But, at the end the characters still have a lot of
questions left unanswered continuing on to the next book.
end, the book starts to tie in to the authors other series Darkest
Powers, so if you haven't read that series it might be good to catch the
references. It looks like the two series might collide into one book in
the next one.
