The Call

Imagine a world where you might disappear any minute, only to find yourself alone in a grey sickly land, with more horrors in it than you would ever wish to know about. And then you hear a horn and you know that whoever lives in this hell has got your scent and the hunt has already begun.


Could you survive the Call?




Hardcover, US Edition, 312 pages


Published August 30th 2016 by Scholastic


Series: Grey Land #1


Horror Dystopia YA




I liked this. It was not like the bleak US dystopia books where everything is shiny and bleak. Now, shit here was bleak.




The Sidhe came back and locked in Ireland from the rest of the world. Nothing comes in, nothing goes out. They are running out of things. And then there is the Call, when every teenager gets dragged into the Grey Lands to be hunted for sport. These days 1 in 10 make it out alive.




Yeah, I liked the darkness, the Sidhe were vicious and angry. They wanted back into our world, that they had first.




And yes there was the whole school thing, so that some would survive everyone is sent to school to learn how to make it out. And yes there is the guy that thinks he is all that and goes a bit power hungry, but every school needs an asshole.




And then there is Nessa, Ireland went to hell and she got polio. Her odds are not good, but dang that girl was cool. She trained in every way she could.




I liked it and I did not want to put it down.
