Original Review: www.literarychaos.com Rating: 4.5 Stars I was surprised to see that The Call was actually part of a duology. I personally felt that The Call read like a stand-alone and was not expecting to read any more of the gruesome brutal world that Peadar O'guilin created. I was both excited and nervous when I found this book. I loved the first book so much, I was worried that this one would not live up to my expectations but I also couldn't wait to continue on with Nessa's story and learn more about the Grey Land. After completing both books, I can honestly say that this duology is probably one of the strongest, most unique and well written young adult duologies I have ever read. I went into this book with such high expectations, as I absolutely loved The Call. I will say right off the bat, I found that this book was not quite as strong as The Call. For me at least, I found that I really missed the school setting and the world-building that came with the first book. That being said, this book was still an amazing read and I would recommend it to anyone. One of the parts I enjoyed most about this novel was the fact that the reader gets to see even more of the Grey Land. A good portion of the book is set in the Grey Land itself, and it is in the Grey land that this O'Guilin's writing style really comes alive. He has such a descriptive, gory, and vivid writing style that it feels more like watching a movie than reading a book at times. I found that I really grew to love some of the side characters. Of course, there was Megan. I loved her in the first book, and I loved her in this book too. Of all the character's she is probably my favorite. The book would be seriously lacking without her sharp tongue. Then there was Aoife. I liked her in the first book, but I really grew to love her in this book. With the good, however, there is also some sub-par. I really did not care for the weird Anto and Liz relationship that gets thrust on the reader in this book. I personally thought that it felt forced and out of place in the novel. If you can deal with some awkward out of place romance and are a reader that can handle violence and bloodshed, I would wholeheartedly recommend reading this Duology.
