Read I Call Upon Thee: A Novella Online Free - A terrifying e-novella from the bestselling author of The Devil Crept In, Brother, and Within These Walls.
Maggie Olsen had a pretty ordinary childhood—swimming and sleepovers, movie nights and dad jokes. And then there were the other things…the darker things…the shadow that followed her home from the cemetery and settled into the corners of her home, refusing to let her grow up in peace.
Now, after three years away from the place she's convinced she inadvertently haunted, and after yet another family tragedy strikes, Maggie is forced to return to the sweltering heat of a Savannah summer to come to terms with her past. All along, she's been telling herself, it was just in your head, and she nearly convinces herself that she'd imagined it all. But the moment Maggie steps into the foyer of her family home, she knows. The darkness is still here. And it's been waiting for Maggie's return….

Maggie is going back home.
She should have never left.
She should have never gone back.
A cemetery doll, a Ouija board, old friends, creeping shadows and burning guilt.
I am a big fan of Ania's work. She can definitely write a creepy tale. This one started out a bit all over the place, but it cam...

Creeeeeeeeeeeepy! I think this might be one of my favorite novellas to date. I feel like we have all at one point or another in our childhood have played with dolls and Ouija boards. I think the difference is whether this experience propelled us into the dark and macabre love that I have, or c...

This was a gripping, spooky read that I could not put down. Ouija boards always freak me out, and this serves as an excellent cautionary tale. I really enjoyed how this was tied into the entire family and a specific location. The local cemetery scenes are all top notch. The parts written about Ma...

This is my 5th Ahlborn book. And I officially think she can do no wrong. Creepy, fast paced with paranormal elements. Prepare for your fear of Ouija board to increase. I love the use of past and present chapters as well as how she writes young characters. Man, she really knows how to write that s...

The writing was just awesome and just flowed beautifully. There was no reason for me to pause and read over sentences or paragraphs, my head screaming “ What the heck did I just read” or Wait, did I miss something?” No not this time, no confusion at all. And I love writing like that! Writing so g...

I LOVED THIS BOOK SO VERY MUCH! This book hit me hard not because I've played with a Ouija board but because it's the very reason why I wouldn't. My high school theology teacher told me something that I'll never forget--"don't ever play with games like a Ouija board, you might have the best inten...

Just a little while ago everybody was talking about Paul Tremblay's A Head Full of Ghosts. I was as well. In my opinion, this novella is on the same level. It's a different story, but the atmosphere and vibe gave me the same chills. It's rare when a book will make me stop reading to collect my se...

I've been a fan of Mrs. Ahlborn for several years now, and 'I Call Upon Thee' did not disappoint. I read it in about two days, and that's rare for me, as I'm a pretty slow reader, even with shorter stuff.
In fact, I'd rank this Southern-fried (sorry) tale of possession, family dysfunction, Ouija b...

I have read some reviews of this novel, and despite some of the more negative ones, I feel like this was one of her best novels yet! To me, there's always something creepy about Ouija boards and demons. This was the first book I've read in a while that I had a hard time putting down. That being s...
