Review: The Dead Come Calling

The Dead Come Calling The Dead Come Calling by C.C. Wood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I must say, I'm really enjoying this series!!

I feel more comfortable labeling this book as a Paranormal Romance. At least more than doing so for the first one. Although the courtship was excessively mild IMO (Zoe was too awkward and prudish for my taste, especially given that she was 27 years old and no virgin), but at least it did exist and it was nice to see the development of Zoe and Mal's feelings despite the lack of passion. Maybe the next book will explore more of the actual relationship and Zoe will stop putting Mal off. Poor guy :(

There was a dark element to this story because the demon that was introduced in the first book made his presence known and felt in this one. Through that experience, we learn about mediums, psychics, witches and necromancers and the powers associated with each. We also witness how they work together to defeat evil. I'm hoping to learn more of this as the series progresses.

The writing, once again, was on point, which made it hard to put this book down. It was eerie, scary and spine-tingling fun. I really loved the camaraderie between the characters. The bond has only grown stronger between Mal, Zoe, Stony and Blaine and I'm excited for more adventures with The Wraith Files team.

Note: I'd really appreciate getting something from Mal's POV. He's a phenomenal character and I think he deserves his own shot in the spotlight.
