The Hunger Games meets horror in this unforgettable thriller where only one thing is certain...you will be Called.
Thousands of years ago, humans banished the Sidhe fairy race to another dimension. The beautiful, terrible Sidhe have stewed in a land of horrors ever since, plotting their revenge...and now their day has come.
Fourteen-year-old Nessa lives in a world where every teen will be "Called". It could come in the middle of the day, it could come deep in the night. But one instant she will be here, and the next she will wake up naked and alone in the Sidhe land. She will be spotted, hunted down, and brutally murdered. And she will be sent back in pieces by the Sidhe to the human world...unless she joins the rare few who survive for 24 hours and escape unscathed.
Nessa trains with her friends at an academy designed to maximize her chances at survival. But as the days tick by and her classmates go one by one, the threat of her Call lurks ever closer...and with it the threat of an even more insidious danger closer to home.

The Call Keeps You on the Edge of Your Seat!
The Call is an interesting concept and I would not mind listening to it again. It has it's own twists and turns and builds its own world to be like none other that I have read about before.
It is hard to pick a favorite character because you get to know so many of them that you even fall in love with the side characters. Each person has their own story and background and I could not help but love a bunch of the characters in this book.
I do not have a favorite scene that would not give away the whole book but I do love the concept of how the characters in the book get Called and what they do in the Sidhe's world.
This book does have funny, violent, and terrifying moments that I found myself wanting to stay up to listen to it. It did keep me awake thinking about some of the scarier images that came to my mind with this book. I will still recommend it but it is part of a suspenseful and horror genre. I usually sway away from horror but the suspense and intrigue of the characters made me finish it and I have been in somewhat of a reading slump lately so this book got me back into reading, finally!
All in all, it is a great book that I will be recommending to my friends.
