The Gathering, the first book in this trilogy, was a great start. It was a YA novel full of the supernatural and Native American lore, with some romance and a bit of suspense. The Calling on the other hand was mainly a suspense. I was excited all the time with all the little twists throughout the whole book. It was very action-packed, and there were some parts that gave me goosebumps.
The characters found themselves in a rather extreme situation, and so they gained a bit of complexity. They very portrayed nicely. I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of Daniel. He is a nice and kind guy, but I'm just not crazy about him. Even though his little confession made him more interesting.
I really like Rafe, he is the mischievous guy with slightly arrogant grin, but he is caring and loyal.
And Maya, the main character, is very likable. With her love for animals and nature, I can't help but really like her. She is a strong female character who is able to be a leader when needed, but she is definitely not flawless. Then again, there is some self-reflection when it comes to her character, which is nice to see.
This is also one of the very few YA novels where I'm really enjoying the romance part.
There was no big climax at the end, but the story progressed a lot. I cannot wait for the last book!
