The Calling by M.D. Neu DNF
BLURB: Being a nobody isn’t Duncan Alexander’s life goal, but it’s worked for him. He has a nondescript job, a few good friends, and overall he’s content. That’s until one fateful trip to San Jose, California, where he is “Called” to meet the mysterious Juliet de Exter. Juliet is a beautiful, wealthy, powerful Immortal who is undertaking The Calling—a search for a human to join her world of Immortals. Inexplicably, Duncan’s calling is more dangerous than any of the Immortals, even Juliet, ever thought it would be.
There is more to this nobody, this only child of long-deceased parents, than anyone thought. When Duncan experiences uncontrollable dreams of people he doesn’t know and places he hasn’t been, Juliet and the other Immortals worry. Soon, his visions point to a coven of long-dead witches. The dreams also lead Duncan to his one true love. How will Duncan navigate a forbidden romance with an outcast Immortal? How will he and the others keep the balance between the Light and Dark, survive vicious attacks, and keep the humans from learning who they truly are? More importantly, who is this implacable foe Duncan keeps seeing in his dreams?
My Review:I received a copy in exchange for an honest review So honestly I don't know why I couldn't finish the book. The writing style was easy to get into and the story premise was intriguing yet somehow I just kept putting it down and reading other stuff. I recommend that anyone interested in it reads a few of the better reviews to get an idea of the book because I can't give you one.
Please note that I lost my dog to Cancer on the day I first opened the book to read it, this might have been a HUGE factor in my problem with the book. I will give it another go, in a few months or so, as I am still quite intrigued by that blurb.
