pic and description taken from Goodreads


Imagine a world where you might disappear any minute, only to find yourself alone in a grey sickly land, with more horrors in it than you would ever wish to know about. And then you hear a horn and you know that whoever lives in this hell has got your scent and the hunt has already begun.

Could you survive the Call?


This book surprised me with how much I liked it.  I bought it on audible a while ago, and just hadn't gotten to it.  My daughter told me I had to read it, because it was creepy.  I LOVE creepy, so I immediately started listening to this book.

Could you imagine having a conversation with your best friend, or any one for that matter, and then mid conversation they disappear?  Then just a few minutes later they either show up maimed or dead.  Me either. 

There is a time limit on how long you have to save your own life.  Schools are set up to teach you survival skills, but when you "Call" comes, do you have what it takes to survive?  This story takes fighting for your life to a whole new level.  It's awesome.

I cannot say much about the book without giving it away, so I will just say that is book is creepy, and awesome.  The narrator is awesome, and has a fabulous accent.

The world is creepy, yet draws you in right away.  I love how the author kept me on my toes about what was going to happen.  I did not expect the ending, but it was wonderful.  I expected something, but not what happened.  It's messed up on so many levels.  Which of course makes me love it even more!
