Overview

Paris, 1890: Tormented by unrequited love, Nicolas de Bresson stumbles upon an occult book that brings him the woman he desires - but at a terrifying cost. Plunged into a labyrinth of supernatural horrors, Nicolas must unravel the mysteries of The Book of Calling and pit himself against the demonic forces that are rising from the shadows to destroy him and to drag his lover to deathless damnation.

Haunting, chilling and bloody, The Book of Calling is a gothic tale of buried secrets, immortal evil, and a love that reaches back from the grave.

"I am the Book of Calling.
My secrets are thine
And thy secrets mine.
Blood and silence are the price of our bargain.
Thy will shall be made flesh
Inscribed forever upon thee and me."

An absolutely amazing good book. I devoured this book in 2 days. I enjoyed the writing style, the prose is rich, it's very fluid and kept up an entertaining pace. The characters were well developed and the protagonist Nicolas is easy to sympathize with and understand. Because of the first-person narrative, we're thrown directly into the mystery and magic of the Book of Calling. Tania Donald has an uncanny ability to describe scenes so well you feel immersed in the story- you can smell the scents, hear the sounds, reach out and touch a character. Her descriptions, her characters ooze of old world charm that has long been lost. This story has that rare quality of atmosphere -- no matter how enchanting the setting, or beautiful , a feeling of darkness and sorrow runs through it. It’s not only an entertaining horror story, it is about the nature of evil, the personal responsibility in following our desires, and the limits of human perception. Using a lot of horror elements of Gothic fiction it really captures how unfair life can be, and how you must be cautious with your power. Definitely give it a try.
