The Callers

The Callers by Kiah Thomas (HarperCollins) PB RRP $15.99 ISBN 9781460762141

Reviewed by Kylie Buckley

In the land of Elipsom, ‘Callers’ have the unique ability to summon objects out of thin air. Those that possess the rare skill are required to join Council, the ruling body of Elipsom, to serve the community. Quin comes from a long line of Callers and feels ashamed not to have inherited this gift to carry on his family legacy. It isn’t until Quin discovers the existence of Evantra, a continent that is being destroyed by Elipsom’s Callers, that he realises that he and countless others have long been deceived. Exposure to the horrible truth means that Quin must now make the difficult choice to support his family or stand up for what he believes is right.

The Callers is an imaginative middle-grade fantasy adventure that includes themes of sustainability, consumerism, deception, and greed. This engaging novel would appeal to readers aged 8 years and older who enjoy thought-provoking narratives about social and environmental issues.
