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 novel was so strange and creepy, it was one hell of a ride though. The writing, the mystery behind the other race and what happens when you are called, made for one hell of a thriller book. I don’t quite know if I will be able to put this review together well enough to describe how good and creepy this book is, but what the hell I’ll give it a shot.
You have this incredibly weird Alien race that has had a treaty forced on them by human race, but the aliens don’t want the treaty anymore. They want their Ireland back, they no longer want the hell that the pay have been banished too. They call upon each human between the ages of 10 to 20. 24 hours on the alien planet is 3 minutes in Ireland, and each child is forced to try and do there best to survive and make it back in one piece. See the aliens have abilities that they can use on humans to cause pain and agony. The can also reshape humans into what ever they want too.
The writing started out a bit slow, but quickly picked up. The way the author can keep you so interested you keep reading, but are so grossed out by the things happening was impressive. There were moments I didn’t want to read any further because I had an idea of what was gonna happen, but I wanted to know so bad that I kept going on.
The MC is disabled, she has a problem with her legs that makes it extremely difficult to walk. I don’t think the book ever said what it was, but it did say it was caused by her getting polo has a baby. Now I can’t speak on the rep, I think there were issues in some spots, but overall well done.
There are a few trigger warnings for this book. One being gruesome death, there are several different ways the characters die throughout this book, some being way more horrific than other so if that is something you can not read please skip this book. My second trigger warning deals with consent. There is a scene that involves two characters, one forcing himself on the other by kissing her and trying to touch her. It is stopped by a instructor, but if it is something that triggers you, skip this book.
