Book Review: The Call of Death by R. J. Garcia

I received this as an eARC to read for free in exchange for my honest review. Thank you to The Parliament House and R. J. Garcia for giving me access. 

Title: The Call of Death
Author: R. J. Garcia
Published by: The Parliament House
Publication date: November 5th, 2019
Genres: Fantasy, YA, Romance, Paranormal


Fourteen-year-old Hannah Priestly crashes into a terrifying future. She wakes up in her dorm room now knowing the name of an infamous serial killer, Norman Biggs. He will attack her in the future unless she and her three male friends can change fate.

Hannah is an obsessive-compulsive California girl dropped off at an English boarding school by her celebrity mother. Hannah has difficulty understanding algebra, let alone her increasingly dark visions. Rory Veer is Hannah’s smart, easy-going and romantically challenged friend and school crush. When Norman Biggs unexpectedly appears in Rory’s reality, terror is set in motion. It is Rory who must acknowledge a past he has denied if the mystery is to be unraveled.


Visions, young love, the four Musketeer’s of sorts, a haunting mystery. Oh my!

WOW! This was a rollercoaster of a story! The Call of Death constantly had me sitting on the edge of my seat! You are immediately pulled in, just to find out that this isn’t the story. WHAT?! 

While the ending was perfect, I was left wanting more. More of Garcia’s writing. More of Hannah’s story. More of Rory’s story. Just, more. —Please give us MORE!

This is a perfect read for those that are a fan on Leigh Bardugo’s, Ninth House and are in need a paranormal hangover cure….or want another read to have a paranormal hangover on.


Rating: 5 out of 5.
