Start your review of Greene's Calling (Seventeen #3)

Several pages in and I put my kindle down. I picked up my iPad and checked out the rest of this series.
I read the blurb for all the future books. Groaned and picked up my kindle again.

I’m glad you asked.
The writing is driving me nuts. In the previous one it was the Harvard professor (73 times). In this one it’s the immortal (224 times). It’s hard to read and puts distance between me and the story. Which is a shame because once I get into these books I don’t want to put them down.

This is the third book in this series ("Seventeen") I read, and even though I haven't rated those any higher than 3/3.5 stars so far, I must say they do all fall in the "I liked it" category: there are slight changes in the genre itself (man-hunt, artifact/ancient secrets, special services...), things sometimes go too fast for serious character development, but all things considered, whenever I want an action-pac

I greatly enjoyed the previous two books in 'Seventeen' series and this one was no exception. The author once again does not disappoint with very well thought out mystery and another set of great characters - but no one will surpass Jackson for me ;). I want more now! :)

Thanks to A.D. Starrling for sending me and ebook in exchange for an honest review.

Greene's Calling opens with brief chapters in history depicting events that occurred centuries prior to the events that unfold in this current adventure. Next we find Greene floating on a river in the Amazon fishing with his faithful pooch when suddenly a plane plummeting from the sky crashes into Green's house. What Greene discovers in the wreckage sets off all the alarms in Greene's intuition and then we're off on an action packed nonstop journey around the world in hopes of preventing events ...more

An immortal healer.
An ancient legacy reborn.
A chain of cataclysmic events that threatens to change the fate of the world.

When a plane crashes in the Amazonian swamp where Conrad Greene is attempting to live out the rest of eternity, the jaded immortal who was once one of the Bastian First Council’s greatest assets stumbles across a conspiracy involving the recently elected president of the United States.

Received via NetGalley and AD Starrling for an completely unbiased review

Note: this book can be read as part of the series, or completely stand alone.

Conrad Green lives in the Amazon. He lives a simple life, filled with simple pleasures and the love of a dog. It has been decades since he had any long term connection to the world, and he plans to keep it this way. He has lost everything that once meant anything to him, and now is content to wait out his immortality alone. When a plane crashes

Greene's Calling is the third book in the Seventeen series. You can also read my reviews of the first books: Soul Meaning and King's Crusade.

Once again, this book is completely different from the first two! The immortals are still the same, and there are some characters from the other books that make an appeara

I am still new at reviewing and feel like I need to explain why I am rating a book I thought was well written three stars. I would never proceed to try to tell a writer how to write their book, like I have seen other reviewers do. Especially when it may just be me at the moment and the writing is good. I feel a review should tell you what I thought of the story and If I was swept away by the telling of the story. On that note, Greene’s Calling is a book which although wonderfully written and obv ...more

I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

Greene's Calling is about a man named Conrad Greene. He is one of the many immortals that live among humans for centuries. For a very long time, Conrad has been living on his own in the Amazon. He has a nice, quiet life and a dog who keeps him company. Everything was fine until a plane crashes down on the house he lives in.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

It’s hard to be an immortal. You can’t find peace not even you live in a remote Amazon swamp. Immortal hottie Greene lives quietly with his dog, for who he gave his life (literally), until an aeroplane fall on his head – almost. Soon he finds himself in the Oval Office and then across the pond pursuing an elusive organization hell-bent on shifting the power balance of the world.

Greene’s Calling is A.D

Conrad Greene has been living alone with his dog, Rocky, in the South American jungle. He doesn't want to be part of the immortal society since his soulmate, Laura, told him she wanted nothing more to do with him. Then a plane crashes into his house and he suddenly has no choice - without him there will be war on a grand scale.

This is the third of A.D. Starrling's "Seventeen" books and once again it is a breakneck read, full of action and adventure and perfect to lose oneself in after a long day

This is the third book in the series "Seventeen" but the first one I read and I think it is ok to read it as a stand-alone. although, es ever with series maybe it is better to read it in order ...

this book is definitely a good one and I liked it: there is a lot of action, an interesting main character and some romance. I was a bit surprised that it is written in Greens POV and this is something, which I needed time to get used to. on the other hand, it gave me a great insight on his character an

This sophisticated and intricate novel of deception and intrigue is guaranteed to be a readers' favorite.
It has the supernatural elements that appeal to the current generation of readers, but even without that aspect, the suspense and detail of this fast paced, intelligent novel kept me glued to the pages.

I have not yet finished the previous books in this series (I wanted to review this for the tour date)
but I know I will read it from the beginning.
Then I will continue on, as at the end there

This has been my favorite out of the Seventeen Series! I loved it! Conrad is an amazing man and that I wish was real! When a plane crashes into his house in the Amazon he gets pulled into an assassination plot that ends his self imposed exile. It brings back Anatole from Soul's Meaning as well as other familiar faces. It also leads Conrad towards the woman he once loved. Can they reunite and forgive 300 year old wounds? It is amazing and out of all of them had a love story that I didn't want to ...more

The series keeps getting better!

I can't put these stories down! In this one we meet Conrad, another pureblood, who has a unique birthmark - similar to the medical symbol of a staff with snakes twining around it. He has the ability to
heal with his touch. Quite a useful trait!

Conrad finds himself working with both Bastian and Crovir groups and the US government to prevent an attack by the remnants of the Ottoman Empire.

It doesn't get much better!

This is the third book in the Seventeen series and like the others it is fast paced and full of action. This books carry a lot of description and facts so if your someone who likes to blow through a book you may not enjoy these books. Having said that they are not stuffy or heavy going, just there is often a lot to take in on a short time frame.
Well written and enjoyable, just not amazing.

I really enjoyed the third book of the Seventeen Series. Conrad lives a secluded life with the company and love of his dog. It has been years since Conrad has come into any contact with people until a plane crashes and finds there is a threat to assassinate the President. He goes to Washington to inform what he has found. He also runs into his long-life soul mate that he hasn’t seen in decades. Neither of them has found new loves to occupy them. But you can’t help who you love and you will be de ...more

What other blurbs can I use to describe these books? Again the narrator does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. Oh well, buy the book, read the books, get into a good author and some good characters as I have. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Greene's Calling is another well-written, well-researched, action-packed, brainy book from A.D. Starrling. What else is there to say? I have never been a huge fan of the action thriller genre, but I cannot get enough of Ms. Starrling's books. I have to take a minute to talk up this author for those of you who may not have heard of her before. I, myself, ran across this series quite by accident, and that was a very lucky day indeed. I was just discussing these books with my friend Deanna, who lov ...more

I stumbled across this series through Book Bub and decided to give it a go. I got the first book for free and then after finishing it, I immediately bought the remaining 3. As mentioned in my previous reviews, this is unlike any other paranormal story I've read before and so at first I was a little bit leery. I am used to the traditional vampires, witches and werewolves, but now I am hooked on the world of the Bastians and Corvirs.

Empire tells the story of retired Bastian hunter, Conrad Greene.

Another great book for an amazing series. This is just as fast paced and action packed as the rest of them. The first one is still my favorite but that just because I adored Lucas Soul and I was glad he was at the end of this. All of these books are written to in away that they can all be read as a stand-alone. Though I recommend they all be read because they are fantastic!

I really wasn't sure about this when I started it. It took a little longer than the others did for me to really get wrapped

I received a copy of this book for my honest opinion from the publisher.
Greene's Calling is the 3rd installment of the Seventeen series. About 2 groups of immortals the Bastion and the Crovirs. Each immortal has seventeen lives. The only way they wont live through a death is if they are decapitated or blown up.
In this book Conrad is an immortal living in the Amazon after losing the love of his soulmate when a plane crashes into his house. While inspecting the remains of the plane and its deceas
This series is a well-written, well-researched, well -presented thrill ride that , despite it’s numerous merits, continues to occupy my ‘like it a lot’ category. This book was no exception. Even though ‘Creene’s Calling’ was a highly enjoyable addition, it did not managed to move the rating higher. With previous books, for me, it was the lack of in-depth character development, mainly due to the breath-taking pace of the actions and while in this book we are allowed a slightly better glimpse
