About This Book

From acclaimed author David Mack comes a gripping supernatural thriller about a man who can hear other people’s prayers for help—involving him in an ancient, ongoing struggle between the forces of heaven and hell.

For millennia, a supernatural war has been waged on Earth, with all the souls who dwell there as its pawns. On one side are the Called—men and women guided by guardian angels who defend humanity from its own worst impulses. On the other side are the Scorned—people influenced by fallen angels.

Tom Nash is a member of the Called who works as a handyman and makes his living doing odd jobs. He’s thirty-three years old, married, and a few weeks away from becoming a father for the first time. And since he was sixteen, he’s been hearing other people’s prayers.

So when he hears the prayers of a kidnapped young girl in New York, he leaves his pregnant wife behind to help, unknowingly becoming a key figure in the ages-old conflict between the Called and the Scorned.

Expertly written, briskly paced, and featuring an edgy, cinematic style, The Calling is a page-turning thriller that readers will be unable to put down.
