I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.This was such a unique take on immortality and society I really enjoyed listening to it and it was full of suspense and mystery The beginning felt quite confusing and a bit slow, but it was worth it for the story For a story centred around immortality, I didn t need to suspend belief as it was based around telomeres and human biology It was really interesting.
The Calling Tree is a rather unique and interesting book packed with action, intrigue, mystery, and immortality It is wonderfully written by C F Waller and the audiobook edition is narrated by Wyatt Baker The book opens by placing the reader into a scene where one immediately begins asking questions Who are the good and the bad guys Is the book futuristic, present, or glimpses back into the past What is so special about these people being hunted down No need to be concerned as all of these are a [...]

A solid three stars Awesome cover and I enjoyed the story and the characters a lot, but there is a formalness to the writing that never let me wholly sink into it And as I listened I had the audio version I finally figured out what created this terseness Two things there is s decided lack of contractions and the speech tags are too often not simply said I m not one who claims a writer should never use anything other than bla, bla, bla, she said But it sure is hard to make bla, bla, bla, she reit [...]
I wasn t sure what to expect from this audiobook, as it s completely different than anything I ve read from this author But I know that this author is very talented, so I was excited to give it a chance and see what he did with this genre And.I absolutely fell in love with everything about this audiobook It s fun when you have no idea where things are going because it was then filled with pleasant surprises and action that didn t seem to stop I m picky about my supernatural stories but this was [...]
Gold silver glitter Since they say that glitter is the herpes of the crafting world I have to point out that immortals are the herpes of the earth in this book Just can t get rid of them Terminator style crazies I love Waller Such a great storyteller Always original I loved that this book has so much history in it too It never hurts to learn while reading or listening to fiction Great first book in a series I can t wait for Thanks for such an enjoyable ride Great narration too I was voluntarily [...]
The Calling Tree is probably not what I expected it was a pleasant surprise When it comes to immortality, Waller writes in a completely different way I found myself rooting for the bad guys for a bit This is an excellent start to a new series The mystery and suspense will keep readers on the edge of their seat.It took me a while to get into it, but once I did, I couldn t stop listening I loved The Calling Tree, I recommend it to all readers The overall rating for me is four stars for the story a [...]
I really liked the concept of this book What if there were immortal people around us every day and we didn t know it I wasn t really sure what to expect, but the author took me on quite a ride The narration is pretty good, though I do feel that is one small area where the story was held back There could have been emotions in the narrator s voice than he showed I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left my honest review The free copy did not influence my rev [...]
My review is based on the Audiobook The Calling Tree is a very interesting tale about immortals and those who want what they have It is told from various points of view which was confusing at the start but the narrator did a great job of giving distinct voices to each character so I was able to follow along easily once the characters were introduced I found the story to have great characters that I quickly became invested in and the world building was on point I look forward to seeing where the [...]
The Calling Tree C F WallerBook 1 of the calling tree series The listener is taken into a world where immortals, short timers, and age frozen beings collide The twists and turns keep you in suspense A bit of humor lightens the mood This was something different than I normally listen to I m sure others will like it The narration was well done The characters were well portrayed by Wyatt Baker.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
This was a great read The story has a faction of immortals silencing another faction that has been outed.Apparently humans are the second try at populating the earth.The storyline was swell.Wyatt Baker is a wonderful narrator.I look forward to the next bookif there is one.I was provided this book for review by the author, narrator or publisher.
They just keep getting better The Calling Tree is my 3rd C.F Waller book, and definitely NOT my last I really enjoyed this story and look forward to the next book I could not put this one down Loaded w action, mystery, adventure and surprises all the way to the end Narration by Wyatt Baker was great, he managed different voices for each character, and they were consistent, very well done
It took a bit to get into it, but it s worth it It is a story of survival and betrayal, centuries of both The characters are very interesting, but very different They blend very well though in this action packed tale I will be checking out book two to read.
The audio book must be better than the e book It badly needs editing I just couldn t get into this book, even though the theme sounded interesting to me I rarely abandon a book once I start it but after slugging through nearly half of it I couldn t go on.
In this science fiction, Waller goes out of his way to make this story believable, and for a minute there, he had me With the plot centered on Dominick Dunn as the main character and the other characters being just that, secondary, I begin to question the purpose of the story Until I realized there were hidden depths to this story, that were revealed, one layer at a time Nothing was as it seem Dunn is non descriptive, lacks personality, and easily led Yet the author put him in the role of people [...]
Regardless of talk that his quarry encounters a strange fortune, to do with his boss, Dominick Dunn is satisfied with his portion in life His wage is decent and on top of that he enjoys traveling His business is in retrieving people and he ll venture far away even across the world to recover the apprehended Then he ll hand them over to his boss Aaron Wessker enters the story a depressed guy His job as a bartender is getting him nowhere and he wishes he had family or at least a significant other [...]
A good readI enjoyed reading this book Thought the concept very interesting Characters well thought out and detailed Not a lot of repetitive words Only wish I could have gone through and proofread it for the author Nothing frustrating than to read a great book with a lot of grammatical errors Other than that, good book
Loved this book a lot Very different from books I ve been reading lately I love the incorporation of biblical history intertwined with mythology The pacing is great and the action kept me on the edge of my seat Definitely recommend this read
A fun rompThis was really fun to read The battle between immortals starts in Las Vegas of course Creative, fast paced and well done Worth plowing through and just enjoying.
