Publisher's Summary

Dominick Dunn is in people acquisition. When the phone rings he shuffles off to the far corners of the globe to retrieve the captured, then turns them over to his employer. He doesn't actually believe these people are immortal, but the pay is good and he likes to travel. Despite rumors that his quarry meets an unthinkable fate at the hands of his employer, he's content with his lot in life. Aaron Wessker is miserable. His life has not gone according to plan. Trapped in a dead end job bartending in Vegas, he longs for a family he lacks, or at least the possibility of a girlfriend. Their lives are about to intersect, causing them both to rethink their place in the world. More importantly they will have to change their opinions of the possibility of immortality. Unfortunately for both of them they will have to do this very quickly. Dunn's quarry is also being pursued by something much more deadly than his employers. Dominick Dunn is about to become the hunted and Aaron's world is about to be turned on its side.

Definitely NOT My Last C.F. Waller Book!!!

They just keep getting better! The Calling Tree is my 3rd C.F. Waller book, and definitely NOT my last. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to the next book. I could not put this one down! Loaded w/action, mystery, adventure and surprises all the way to the end. Narration by Wyatt Baker was great, he managed different voices for each character, and they were consistent, very well done!

A CROWDED ARENA OF IMMORTAL DISTRUST

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

I think this book was fascinating. The world Waller created was fresh and added a new twist to the “Immortality” theme. His writing is comprehensive with moments to chuckle and questions to ponder. Although I very much enjoyed the story, all their abrupt “endings” were pretty dismal. Research on DNA and biblical references were woven in well. The Angel/Demon and Heaven/Hell references never became apparent. I was left with wondering if there really was a good or bad side. But there was no question as to who I disliked.

There were so many people involved at the end... and that’s my main complaint. Too many unnecessary people with no distinct hero.
This is going to be hard for me to explain... sorry if it makes no sense.
When the story begins, Dominic Dunn appears to be the main character. In reality, his character wasn’t even needed. Ron-E, another on his team, was the only one to actually do anything, at least, anything important. She could have fulfilled both character’s roles. Aaron Wessker is introduced a bit later. These two turn out to be the leading characters. I think there were too many people having too many dialogs that just weren’t necessary. Any information I gained from the supporting cast could have been worked into furthering relationship growths between the most important characters.

Wyatt Baker’s reading was fabulous. Hope to hear more from him.

Two Thumbs Up.
