Book Review -- Crimson Calling by S.J. Slack


Crimson Calling (The Crimson Series #1)Crimson Calling by S.J. Slack
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A digital copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

The story revolves around Callie, who is in a nursing school in Denver. She comes across Dr Harding in the Emergency Room, where she begins her clinical career. Despite a sour start psychologically, she soon finds herself trusting and opening up to Dr Harding. She encounters Dr Harding again in a mysterious circumstance while on vacation in Vegas, who reveals a startling secret about her transformation into something evil and fearsome. To add to her woes, Callie's biological uncle enters the picture, with his own hidden motives.

This was a superb read! Albeit short, I guess this was exactly the effect the author wanted to achieve - leaving the reader wanting for more. Full of surprises and twists, the story has been set at a good pace. Given the restrictions of the length of the book, at times the reader is dazed at the speed with which the story progresses. Nevertheless, the length of the tale hasn't stopped the author from delving into each character in detail. Be it Callie, her bewilderment and puzzled responses clear at the revelations about herself, or Dr Harding, who finds himself helping a nursing student in his ER, the characters are enigmatic and intriguing.

I would definitely recommend this book to lovers of paranormal tales.
