Call of Vultures by Kate Kessler

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book was amazing! This is the second book in The Killian Delaney Novels, and if you haven’t read the first book, Seven Crows, I highly recommend it! I’ll add a link to my review of this book a little later in the post!

This series features Killian, our kick-A female lead character, a girl with a unique set of talents to take care of crappy villains. I love her because she’s a flawed character and struggles with her own demons. It makes her relatable. Her talent for tracking down the bad guys, however, is beyond anything I could ever do, and I love reading about her adventures!

This book is packed with action scenes, sassy quips, and an awesome story that kept me gripped from start to finish. I finished this book so fast because I couldn’t put it down! I love the way Kate Kessler writes her stories. She brings the characters to life with their backstories and their personalities. It makes the characters relatable, and I just need to know how things work out for them.

Overall, I absolutely loved this second story in this series! I absolutely adore the characters, and I found myself completely sucked into the story! I highly recommend this one!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend Call of Vultures to readers that enjoy a strong, sassy female lead that takes charge in an action plot.

I highly recommend reading Seven Crows before reading this new book. It will provide a lot of backstory and context. Here is my review!

Where to Find This Book:

Amazon ~ Kindle ~ Goodreads


In this suspenseful and twisted thriller, an ex-con uses her unique skill set to fight for the justice of those who can’t defend themselves. Kate Kessler’s novels are “impossible to put down” (Hollie Overton).

Killian Delaney has a skewed moral compass, a high threshold for pain, an unstoppable will, and she’s just joined the Network: a group of well-funded individuals who help the weakest among us.

Two sisters have gone missing, and Killian has been hired to track them down.

The plan is straightforward: follow the trail, find the girls, and kill whoever stands in her way.

They’re living in a commune in upstate New York, one that looks a lot like a cult. And while one sister wants out, the other adamantly refuses.

Breaking them free will push every skill in Killian’s arsenal to its limit. But she’s determined to get them home.
