Review: The Calling: A Supernatural Thriller

The Calling: A Supernatural Thriller
The Calling: A Supernatural Thriller by Robert Swartwood

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Atmospheric and dreadful – in a good way. This is the first thing I have read by Swartwood but while doing so, it was apparent to me that he is pretty good at what he does. I got the feeling that this novel had exactly the tone and presented in exactly the way he intended it to. “The Calling” does that thing that I is most important in horror novels that do not rely overly much on gore or shock; it creates a sense of dread in the reader’s mind about the underlying cause of all the conflicts presented in the story. It’s a highly entertaining supernatural novel rendered by an author who has honed his craft to precision. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the genre.
