unfortunately the religious aspect has put me off
slightly and if there is a series I won't be following
it up. A good enjoyable read though.
"The Calling" is an exceptionally satisfying novel of the Supernatural. Set in one of the same locales as the "prequel," "Spooky Nook," this story is fine as a stand-alone (but I recommend, for the reader's continued satisfaction, reading "Spooky Nook" as well). Author Robert Swartwood delves into some Supernatural venues not usually the purview of horror writers, makes that choice work excellently, and horrifies readers while keeping us thrilled with the novel's progress and pace.
Christopher has just turned eighteen and graduated; like many adolescents, he acts out quite a bit and stays out late. The next morning, after oversleeping, he discovers he is the only person left alive in his home: his parents have been slaughtered. Initially suspected of the murders, he is eventually exonerated and sent from his Pennsylvania home town to upstate New York to live near his grandmother and detective uncle. On the surface, his life seems almost normal, but Christopher and his family members have already served a session in hades, so to speak, and as is gradually revealed, nothing is normal about him, his family, or his ancestors--or the town to which he relocates.
Robert Swartwood keeps the Supernatural heat turned up, yet at the same time we are given a perspective on Christopher's coming of age, in the emotional, metaphoric, and metaphysical sense. I can't wait to read more from this author.
It was an ok book, but it have and will read better.
I don't want to spoil anything, so won't go into details - but I really do urge anyone who likes a supernatural tale to read this book. It's better than anything else in this genre I've read for a very long time! I'm now a fan of this author and can't wait to read more by him.

I found this read a bit too confusing. With the main character being involved in so many deaths there was never a proper pilice investigation. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Colin Macgregor
I really enjoyed this book, I will definitely be downloading more from this author.
It's shame there isn't a sequel as I'd like to follow Chris's story!
This is an enjoyable supernatural thriller with twists and turns, which had me hooked from the first page. Well written although the proof reader could have done a better job!Published on 29 Dec. 2014 by Suzanne Foster
Far too American for me, it lost my attention almost immediately, and I got confused as to who was who. Read morePublished on 25 Dec. 2014 by pam
