The Summoning (Mini-Review)

(Darkest Powers, #1)

Release Date: July 1st, 2008
Genre(s): YA Paranormal/Fantasy

My Review: (3.5/5 stars*)

The Summoning is a really compelling read. The beginning is very intriguing and mysteriously creepy. Chloe Saunders the main character of the story is a little naive, immature, yet logical. Her power is interesting but you rarely see much of it. The book as a whole held my attention and it took me less than 6 hours to read. Overall I enjoyed it but it lacked consistent action. The beginning and end were the best parts. Although simple the Summoning made for an enjoyable read and will leave you wanting more. 


Chloe Saunders is a perfectly average fifteen-year-old until she sees a dead person. Nobody believes her when she runs through her private art school screaming bloody murder to get it away from her. That's how she ends up at a home for teenagers with issues. Everything appears normal as she falls into a routine-until she starts questioning strange things around Lyle House. How long will she be locked away here? What exactly is wrong with her housemates that they ended up in this place? The answers are even more strange and frightening than she could have imagined. Old secrets loom beneath Lyle House, and Chloe starts to realize maybe her being sent there wasn't a coincidence.
