Elana Black. Saving the day even if she has to tear a hole in the universe to do it.

An unbeatable mythological horror has its sights set on Elana, and that’s not the worst of her problems. Gods want to use her, shadowy agents want to eliminate her, and a powerful sorcerer wants to kill her; all as she rushes to stop an event which portends the death of her best friend. I

Whoever said bad luck came in threes must have encountered the Nuckalavee. Although if they had, it was doubtful they would be around to speak such sage advice. Unfortunately, with her new powers and a proposition from the divine, one now has Elana in its sights, and it will stop at nothing to get to her. Everyone knows her weakness, the innocent, her friends. It is one of the worst demons in existence, and that it would come for her seems to reveal a lot about the one who summoned it, Kodran Os ...more

I loved this second book in the series even more than the first. The story is fast paced from the beginning as Elana is beset by a variety of challenges including hideous creatures, while trying to keep her friends alive. I really like Chalsarda as a character and some of the evil characters are great fun in a very nasty way! I loved what happened to Kodran! I am quickly moving on to book 3 in the series, which says it all!

Fast paced, imaginative and exciting.
The book hits the road running. Elana has made enemies and allies in the world of magic, but sometimes it's hard to know which is which and who to trust. Elana has the impossible task choosing between sacrificing herself or her friend Olivia to save Lucia. People are prepared to help her but they all have their own agendas. But first she has to defeat an undefeatable monster three times.
Elana is not alone in her quest. She has a group of friends prepared to

Great follow up

Warning Call is a great follow up for book one, Empty Threat. Fast paced, intense adventure, and great tie-in with the mythological makes for an interesting and fun read. Highly recommend!
M.R. Graham
Definitely more intense than the first book, and answers a lot of questions that were leftover. I'm still a huge fan of Elana, though I kind of want to noogie the savior-complex out of her head. And I am tremendously pleased with Chalsarda. ...more

This is my review of the audio version as posted on Audible:

The second book in the series is even faster, crazier and more magical than the first one...:)

Elana is in trouble, big trouble this time...
Again, the book starts quite innocently, with a short outing with a friend into the mountains. What could go wrong with that, right? Well... it's Elana, so you cannot expect everything to go according to plan...:) And then it starts: monsters, gods, sorcerers - everyone wants Elana, most of them want

I read the first book in the series a while ago, so I'd forgotten some of the story line, but it was easy to pick up again as I continued to read.

There's so much depth and intricacy to the story. You get to travel between worlds and see the "real" lives of fictional characters. Elana, the story protagonist, has even been able to change the outcome of published stories and TV shows. All such a great, unique concept.

The Norse mythology (oh, excuse me, Freya, I mean "history") was fascinating to re
Madeleine Holly-Rosing
A sequel to Empty Threat, this book follows the adventures of Elana Black and her friends (Elf and human) as they deal with magic, bureaucratic sorcerers, and an overbearing goddess. It gets even more interesting when Elana must face the possibility of having to sacrifice a friend for the greater good.

I really enjoyed this book. I always love it when subsequent books from a writer are even better than the first and this fits the bill. Fast-paced and witty, the main character is flawed, but alwa

I picked this up, having read the first book and wanting to continue the story. I think I missed a book between the two, but nevertheless I was soon able to work out what was going on, and was pulled into the story as if I'd never been away. Elana has a choice to make, save one, or lose one, and she's not happy with either option. The story is beautifully told, and keeps you immersed in the world with ease. I adore Bell's descriptions and the way he sets the scene and this book is no different. ...more

Elana battles monsters, gods and the occasional sorcerer to rescue an old friend and save the world in this second story in the Black Pages series.
There's lots of action and some very interesting characters, some sympathetic, others, not at all. I loved the diversity of the mythologies and thoroughly enjoyed Elana's efforts to win her battles by outsmarting rather than out-muscling her oponents.
A good story, and the Audible version is made even better by the excellent narration of Whitton Frank.

Warning call: A Novel of the Black Pages by Danny Bell is an extremely creative young adult action-packed fantasy. With fantastic dialogue, characters battle across the pages of a novel to the electrical discharge of a television screen. For example: “I won’t go down in history as the man outsmarted by an idiot.” “From what I can tell, you’re not going down in history at all!” I chuckled when I read that but don’t worry, there are many more great one liners still to be discovered. A

Get swept up in this fantasy world, where Elana and her friends travel in and out of worlds, books, and TV. Fiercely protective of her friends and the innocents in her adventures, she faces the non-stop action and challenges that come her way all the time wondering how she is going to survive each. This is my first 'audible' book and I found the voice of the reader pleasant, her character depiction enjoyable, and the clarity of both voice and sound excellent. ...more

Warning Call: A Novel of the Black Pages is clearly the sequel to an earlier story, and as such is difficult to follow at first, and at other points in the narrative. Unusually this is a fantasy story with American-styled humour, which at times for me seemed out of place. The overall story was fine although it did drag in the middle. The antagonist, in this case a dark character, to me was underdeveloped. Although well-written, Warning Call didn't really grab me. ...more

An excellent follow-up adventure to EMPTY THREAT, featuring a great focus on the relationships Elana has with her friends as well as the enemies and other challenging folks who are now a part of her life. A great story performed brilliantly by the narrator. Looking forward to the next adventure in this series!

Well, that was a fun read. Lots of energy here. Teen lovers of urban fantasy will eat this up. Kinda fun for me, being an Angelino myself. So much going on. Perfect YA fantasy.

A Reminder to Read the First Book

It’s so hard to pick up the second book in a series when it jumps right in and you’re stuck wondering if you should plunge forward or stop to review the first book!

Whereas I felt the first book was lovely and brought favorite books and tv to life, this was more rooted in the current real world; with characters - fictional or mythical - were grounded and living amongst us. It’s not how I hoped the series would progress, but I suppose it was the natural
