Normally, the second book in a series is not my favorite. It’s a bridge between the first and the final books, and almost always leaves me dissatisfied. “The Calling” is an exception to that rule.

I could not put this book down until I was finished with it. It gripped me, convicted me, wrapped things up nicely while still ushering in Book 3—I loved everything about it. So. Good.

I am running to my library to get Book 3. The bar is set high with this one; hoping and trusting the next will be just as good.

The Calling is a sequel to The Choosing. The Calling is told more from Remco’s point of view. Remco and Carrington are now living outside the city with other Seer’s. Remco is becoming overwhelmed trying to protect the group and rescue other Seer’s from the city. He is frequently told that he needs to surrender the fear that drives him but he can’t do that. His fear consumes him and almost destroys him and those he loves.

I thought that this was a good middle book. It continued the story from The Choosing and the ending is satisfying even though the story is not done. Some of the main themes of letting go of fear and trusting in the Father remind me of the themes in Ted Dekker’s stories. She was definitely influenced by her father. This was a very enjoyable read and I look forward to the conclusion.
