It took a loooong time for me to get into this book. Like, half way before it stopped being world building and got into the story. The story itself is fine, but not worth all that build-up. I don't think I'll be continuing this series.

Oh, this is set in Buffalo, and there's nothing in the book that screams "Oh my god, the author knows nothing about Buffalo!" Frankly, it could have been set anywhere for as much as the city played any part in the plot. Perhaps it comes more into play in the following books. ( )

After the HUGE disappointment that TWO WAY STREETS provided, I needed something to wash away the bitter taste it left in my mouth and I thought that, maybe something non-romantic, out of this world and a little spooky would be satisfying so I picked up a Mrs. Armstrong book and boy how much I was right!

Fast paced and very well written, this book was a breath of fresh air, all those supernatural kids with awesome powers (I always had a thing for pyromania!) and the big mystery behind Lyle House reminded me a little of "The Pretender" minus the genius thing.

What bothered me a bit was the ending, I was waiting for a major cliffhanger that would knock the breath out of me and would make me anxiously waiting for the next book. However, I'm looking forward reading it. ( )

Somehow my ratings and reviews were lost for this book series, so my review won't be as detailed as before.

I loved this book series and I read them as fast as I can. I love the main character Chloe and the world the author created. Chloe and the people she meets along the way go through quite a roller coaster of events.

This has a little bit of everything with action, paranormal, fantasy, and a little romance (Which is just how I like it, just blended into the story and not the main focal point.)

I would definitely recommend this book series to people. ( )

I've heard this book compared to Twilight. I would agree, if you removed the sparkling, the vampires, the emo boy (well, traded him in for a boy with emotions and not the caricature of emotions), the fated love BS, the whine-y heroine, the... Well, you get the idea. Instead, upgrade the werewolf, give our heroine a power that is terrifying, surround her with kids with their own collection of terrifying powers, a believable problem greater than "we can't be together" and "I smell tasty", real bad guys (not sparkly ones), and scary situations.

The Summoning is Kelley Armstrong's (author of The Otherworld Series) debut young adult series book. The teenagers in this book, live in the same universe as the characters in The Otherworld Series, but we get a younger perspective of the already familiar world.

I absolutely love Armstrong's books and this one's no different. Armstrong recaptured her writing style, but for a much younger audience. For those who have read the other novels in The Otherworld Series, you can step right back into this world where you know supernatural creatures exist and you can just go along for the ride as Chloe discovers that the world around her is not as "normal" as she thinks.

Chloe is a great character to read. I think she identifies with a majority of teenagers in the fact that she doesn't feel like she fits with the "in crowd". She is strong and independent and really spreads her wings when she finds out that it's okay not to be "normal".

This "coming of age" novel is very fast paced and fun for all ages. It was really great to see how these teens dealt with their powers at a critical point in their mental and physical developments... and I thought puberty was hard!

I highly recommend this book for all Kelley Armstrong's fans and also for those who want to begin a journey into the world of the supernatural.

He pivoted, gaze following me as I crossed to the shower and turned on the cold water, so it would drown out our conversation without steaming up the room.
"Great," he muttered."Now they're going to think we're showering together. Maybe we can just tell them we were washing off the crawl space dirt and trying to conserve water."
