In Death Callers, the first in a new young adult paranormal romance series by Raven Hudgins, Aislin Gray can't wait for her eighteenth birthday to arrive. She is a banshee and part of a long line of wailing women. Once she turns eighteen, she will be granted her first Death Call and receive a vision of someone's death. Unfortunately, her excitement turns to dread when her first call is of the boy who only just recently came back into her life, her first love, Kaelin O'Neil. Aislin is determined not to let that happen and she will do anything to keep Kaelin alive and in her life, even if it means going against everything she has been taught.

Death Callers by Raven Hudgins is a fast paced young adult read. In a genre overrun with vampires and werewolves, I was excited to find that Death Callers would explore the world of the banshee, injecting a refreshing twist into the genre. While the writing wasn't as strong as I would have liked, with many moments that leaned more toward the telling side of things, Hudgins crafted Aislin's plight in such a way that will have readers rapidly flipping pages to discover what happens next. Aislin herself is a capable character and her romance with Kaelin is sweet, which makes the reader all the more hopeful that she will be able to save his life. All in all, Death Callers by Raven Hudgins is a good read for anyone looking to add something unique to their paranormal collection.

Great book, would definitely recommend! December 10, 2015
Amazing fictional book that kept you hooked the whole entire time and ended with you wanting to read more. This book brought to life different types of fictional characters that aren't written about much and wasn't focused on the same vampire and werewolf plot like a lot of other books I've read. It's nice to have a book that's focused on a different kind of character instead of the same thing a lot of fictional books are written about these days. Definitely a book I would read again, and again and really hope there are more books to come.
