    Just as enthralling and page turning as the last three books, 'Call of the Wraith' does not disappoint! I love the uncertainty that is placed upon Christopher and the reader themselves. I honestly began to doubt some things and certain people and had no clue what was going on (in a good way; everything came together in the end) or who the culprit was, making this a brilliant, suspenseful read (just like all the others, haha).

(hide spoiler)]Definitely pick this book up if you enjoyed the others! Or, if you picked up this book and enjoyed it, definitely go and pick up the last three! The writing, plot, and characters are all well thought out and get you immersed in their time and world. And as always, I love the bit of historical background and research put into these books. Can't wait for the next one to come out!

    This series is so fantastic. Sands has created three of my all-time favorite characters: Christopher, Tom and Sally. Their interactions and devotion to one another are instructive, as is their determination to help others and stand for good.
