The Calling is a well-paced and engaging supernatural thriller. Swartwood keeps the story going at a nice clip with plenty of twists and surprises. I listened while in the car and there were several times when I hit to sit idling in my driveway until the chapter ended so I could pull myself away. The characters are multifaceted and well-composed, and the voice acting is excellent—Tristan Morris is also definitely someone to keep an eye on.

Disclosure: I received this audiobook for free in return for an honest review.
Some books spend so much time focusing on backstory that I begin to wonder when the action will start. The Calling, most decidedly, is NOT one of those books! The story begins with Chris's discovery of his murdered parents and follows his journey after that event. The Calling includes references to Bible passages as well as supernatural elements -- those details flesh out the story and also make Chris's journey even more dramatic. I found the narration enjoyable and didn't want to stop listening because I wanted to know how it all ended. The Calling is a good story, well-told.

Overall I did like the book and was waiting for a chance every time to get to play the next part. My usual is Stephen king and tried this and although it was a lot different I kept with it to see the ending. Reader good
