it's about time we are introduced to a strong young male lead
that resembles harry potter and the great percy jackson. No this is not
in any way like the books I mentioned above. it's unique all on it's own.
this was such an epic middle grade read, I had to catch my breath
at moments in this book. The action was perfect and the story was
so brilliantly unique. If you love fantasy novels in the middle grade/YA
genres then pick this one up as soon as possibl...more

I won this book as an ebook from Richard Denney's blog contest.

Rowan is a 13 year old boy living with his grandfather, who happens to be a Caller, someone who calls the dead. Right off the bat, a girl his age shows up on his doorstep, begging for protection from two evil people who want to kidnap her for her powers. She's an Immortalist, the last of her kind, a person who lives a hundred years longer than a regular human. But if someone were to kill an Immortalist and drink her blood, they woul...more

I couldn't help being reminded of Les Misérables when the barefoot girl shows up late at night with the man, and I liked it. I felt the beginnings of a classic here, great things to come from this book. Can't wait to read #2.

A very engaging middle grade story, chock full of adventure and unique creatures. I hope book 2 will be available soon!
Such a quick and fun novel with unique elements and a story that's never been done before. The best middle-grade novel I've ever read!

Pretty amazing, if I do say so myself! More to come

Wanna read this book so BAD!!!!!!
*3.5/5 Stars - A nice final book to end 2011!

I haven't read middle grade for well over a year now I guess. Around the time I finished The Hunger Games Trilogy (before I even knew it was a popular series, let alone part of this enormous book community!), I find myself unable to immerse myself back in the middle grade genre. Becuase of how serious The Hunger Games was, I wanted something darker, something that was truly fantastic that could blow my mind away - so I eventually moved on to young adu...more

Wow, let me begin by saying that it takes quite a bit to get me interested in the story of a new set of characters and creatures, but this book did it! I love the concept of what an Immortalist is and I love the magical world that it is set in. Stitches is my favorite minor role character because he seems like he could come in handy being so small, and the main characters are all too amazing to choose just one. This book has it all really, it's fast paced, adventurous, creepy at parts, and I lov...more

Thank you

This wasn't a bad book at all, but it is geared toward middle grade and I have a hard time getting into those books.

The characters were great tho and the concept of the story was also.

This was a great fantasy novel I can't wait until the next one. My favorite character was Pike, he was very awesome. 4.5/5
Great story, I can't wait for book 2 :)

“I think you’ve forgotten that this place holds a lot more than just
betraying Hobgoblins. Call upon the spirits, summon fairies, raise the
dead! My brother, you have the power to do so--now get off of your butt
and use it!”
