This is the sequel to The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong, so go read the first book before my review or there will be spoilers.
The Calling was everything one can hope for in a YA paranormal series.
- It has a strong female character whom fights to survive and protect her friends.
- It has action and suspense
- It has chemistry between characters
Many of the things that were hinted at in The Gathering become more clear and some of the questions are answered. I find the middle books in Armstrong’s series’s to be less strong than the introductions and conclusions but they are enjoyable none the less. It looks like the end of this series will be a mash up with her other popular series that began with The Summoning so I highly recommend that fans read that trilogy in preparation for the next book.
