The Calling moves at a good pace to keep the audience abreast of the situations while slowly luring them into the web that spins around Faye. Nick is a sympathetic and compassionate soul when it comes to taking care of his wife. Faye endures many events and is strong throughout her journey. I could almost share in the feelings that Faye was experiencing throughout her confrontations. Kathryn Meyer Griffith pens a book that has some rollercoaster twists and turns that keep the reader on their toes. She really has done her research. I found this an interesting read with a great cast.

Review by Robin: I thought that this might be an interesting story because of the ghost theme. I guess I didn't read that much of the blurb because I soon found it to be very Egyptian themed. I am not a fan of anything that has to do with Egypt but, I decided what the heck and gave The Calling a try.
Haunted by a 3,000 year old Egyptian princess, Faye Summer finds that her dreams are starting to become more real as others are able to now see and smell what she was only able to for the longest time. She is seeing the young Egyptian princess and smells flowers and citrus when she is around.
The young princess turns out to be one of Nefertiti's daughters and needs the help of Faye to find out why they were murdered so that their souls can finally find peace.
After a few unfortunate events; Faye almost dying from someone robbing the bar, leaving her in a comma for four weeks; to flying spirits in the bar that the customers could actually see.
Now Faye feels strongly about them going to Egypt to find out what actually happened to Nefertiti and her daughter's all those years ago.
Faye's husband Nick has given much strength and support to her over the years what with her seeing the spirits and everything else. But, going to Egypt when they are having trouble here at home just isn't his idea of fun.
But to support his wife off they head to put things to rest. They run into some people that help them along the way that actually have the same goal in mind.
There are many twists and turns along the way. A trip of a lifetime for Faye almost ends in another near death experience.
Faye and Nick stay strong and weather all the mishaps that happen along the way. There are some strange occurrences and some nice surprises.
All in all it was a pleasant story. This story holds elements of suspense, romance and the paranormal and even some added bonuses thrown in to add to the pleasant surprise. Ms. Griffith did a really nice job of researching Egypt, Nefertiti and all that went on during that tragic time. While Faye and Nick were in Egypt they even went on a trip to the pyramids which added in bringing the characters to life. She also made it believable that something like this could actually take place in this day and age.
An enjoyable story for anyone who has a passion for Egypt.
