A Caller’s Game by J.D. Barker is a non-stop roller coaster ride. It is equally hard to accept what occurs in this absolutely engaging novel could ever be possible. Eventually, it doesn’t make any difference as I liked it a lot. I usually don’t like to be interfered once I reach about the 75% mark of the novel. However, for the first time while reading A Caller’s Game I don’t want to be interfered from the first page. The reason behind it is the action which started to develop directly from the first page and it last till the end.
