To Call Your Name by Catherine Green

Chloe gave up Seth to save the world…and his soul. Now all she has to do to become one of the People is to complete a Quest she doesn’t understand, to find a mythical object she can’t see, in a realm she can’t access.

Seth left town to escape the ghosts of his past and the love he can’t forget. But the one thing that will set him free is the only thing he can’t bring himself to do.

To Call Your Name is the heart-stopping sequel to Life in the Palace.

Author Catherine Green 
Catherine Green writes fantasy books featuring religious characters in a brazen attempt to make the people in faith communities seem less weird. She lives with her husband, children and three marginally neglected goldfish. When she's not writing, or pretending to be one of her characters on Facebook, she has been known to cook dinner.

Jewelz Review~
To Call Your Name is the sequel to Life in the Palace - the continuing story of Chloe and Seth. Both their lives have been drastically affected by their breakup. Seth has spiral downwards - trying desparately to find solace or perhaps self destruction through alcohol & women. Ultimately his friends basically force him to take a vacation and leave the country. Chloe has turned the focus of all her energy to The Quest. She has determined that becoming one of the People is her best chance to once again finding peace. However, they are both plagued by dreams - or are they nightmares - where they are together. Why can't they leave their shattered relationship behind? As both Seth and Chloe struggle with trying to "move on" they find they have an unbreakable connection despite their best efforts to sever ties to each other.

While I missed the relationship that Chloe and Seth had developed in Life in the Palace, I really enjoyed this installment in the Palace Saga. Both Chloe and Seth grow individually and they have some fascinating experiences. While Seth is bitter and gets sucked into a self-destructive cycle he does ultimately begin to find peace and his desparate love for Chloe is evident. Chloe handles things more constructively - she begins The Quest to join the People. Hers is a journey of self-discovery and faith. I'm looking forward to starting the next installment: Camp in the Shadow - available now!

FYI ~ I received an ebook copy in exchange for an honest review
