This is the first "ghost story" that I have listened to in a long time. I have not listened to many horror stories as my preferred genre is mystery and romance. I found this book to be well written although it was unbelievable with both the good and evil spirits. It was a nice change of pace.

I love supernatural thrillers and this one has it all. What a well written story and a perfect narrator for it. Not only is it a paranormal thriller but its full of so much action. I believe anyone who likes ghost stories, thrillers, or just action will love this book as much as I did.

This is a great audiobook that kept me captivated from start to finish. It's not your usual ghost story, it's unusual, has great plot twists, characters that have depth and is an excellent mix of suspense, action, romance and the supernatural. The narrator suited the book well. She did an excellent job of both male and female voices, I even checked at one point to see if there was a second male narrator. The authors descriptive writing combined with the great narration makes you really visualize the characters and what is happening. It is an exciting, enjoyable story and I will look forward to the next book in this series. I received the audiobook from the author at no cost and under no obligation.
It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
When They Come Calling was a good listen. It was different than other similar audiobooks in the same genre. I liked the plot, it was easy to follow. The story didn't get bogged down with filler. It flowed well. I enjoyed the characters of Anna and Jed. Overall this was a well written book by Sarah Fleming Mountford.
Elizabeth Saydah's performance was excellent. She kept a good pace, not too slow or too fast and she had great voice inflections. She did a wonderful job narrating.

A doctor saved by a stranger who knows her. An ability to see ghosts. A battle between good and evil.
This is part one of a series and I was disappointed to see no other book is available yet, because I'd be interested in knowing what happens next.
Anna is a doctor with more than an ability to heal. She has an ability to release ghosts from their earthly ties, however, the ghosts have other ideas. They seem to want to take over the world. A stranger with a strange tale telling Anna she is essential to the battle to save humanity. A strange council.
This is an interesting story, well read by Elizabeth Saydah. There's a slow build up of the story, developing the relationship between Anna and Jeb, her self-appointed protector, as well as several other characters. There's an epic battle by the end and the lead up to another book.
I liked this story and am interested in reading the rest of the series ... hint, hint :)
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. This story was very interesting and only got more interesting, especially at the end. Now I am curious about future volumes. The narration was a bit clinical in tone, but I took that to be because the main character is an atheist doctor with supernatural abilities she has a hard time believing to be true. I found it interesting how the narrator incorporated characters and history from the bible and ancient world histories with the supernatural immortal beings. I'm curious to see what adventures the characters have for them in the next book.
Good action paranormal romance. Well written and an unusual story. The narration was well done and the characters were complex and all very interesting. I hope there would be a second book.

When They Come Calling was a great action-packed paranormal romance. Some of the character names were a little confusing, though. Jed, Ned and a mold named Fred? The narration was well done and the characters were all very interesting. I liked the good vs. evil storyline and I can't wait to see what happens next in Book 2. I would recommend this audiobook.

I thought this was an enjoyable book. It appealed to me because of the main character being a doctor, and the fact that it was a ghost story. I thought it was well-paced and kept me engaged throughout. I have to admit that there seemed to be something missing between Anna discovering she has powers and being able to use them immediately, but it didn't really detract from my enjoyment of the story. I listened to the Audible audio version of the book narrated by Elizabeth Saydah, and I really enjoyed her narration. She has a really pleasant "alto" voice, which blends well for both male and female characters, and she does a good job of giving each character a unique voice.
I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
A modern ghost story that had an interesting mix of suspense, mystery, fantasy, supernatural, and a bit of romance. Anna is a doctor who runs a free clinic and for most of her life she has been able to see ghosts. While on her way home one evening a homeless, mountain of a man, saves her life. She feels indebted to him and is not sure what to do with him, but after feeding and housing him for one night, she finds out that he has been sent to protect her from some pretty malevolent ghosts. With relatable characters and some good twists and turns, the story kept up a good pace that was very original. Elizabeth Saydah did an excellent job narrating that helped to bring the characters to life.
