and Kelley weren t friends after reading Bitten, which I felt was mediocre at best but this book came as a surprise First I was all like typical teenage stuff, girl complaining about life, afraid to

GOOD So I bought this book last year at a summer book fair, I was not expecting to like it cus me and Kelley weren t friends after reading Bitten, which I felt was mediocre at best but this book came as a surprise First I was all like typical teenage stuff, girl complaining about life, afraid to ask boy to the dance typical stuff Until this girl starts to see things that no one else can and then it became all kinds of interesting.Chloe Saunders is having some weird dreams about basements and ghosts, with no idea where they are coming from she easily forgets it Until she gets her period and then all hells breaks loose Yeh I know its sounds crazy right, but its true With this new walk into womanhood comes ghost, and this one s face is all burnt up and Chloe is two seconds away from losing it A run in with a teacher, who claims Chloe became violent, leads her to being incarcerated at some group home like place called Lyle House That is when all that Chloe knows no longer exists, she is about to enter into a world she never thought possible and find friends in this unlikely place.Well something is up, the kids in this house don t seem quite normal especially the huge boy with the acne face who gives Chloe the creeps Derek is a brooder but he seems to know a lotthan he is letting on him and his brother A talk with the house doctor claims Chloe has schizophrenia, and that seems impossible because she still is seeing ghosts Well going along with their diagnosis seems to be the better thing to do, the quicker she can leave.Well there is something fishy up with Lyle House and the people who run it, all the kids seem to have some kind of power and some are turning up dead A quick plan for an escape comes up and thus begins the beginning of their lives Chloe will come to learn she is a necromancer can raise the dead and a powerful one, there is a company hell bent on harvesting supernatural s and if they seem defective they are terminated Life aint easy for this 15 year old.This book was a prime example of pill pushing, your kid seems to be acting out of character, so that means they have a mental illness How about you try talking, that works where I come from Plus this book characters are so well developed it just blew my mind, they seem adult yet they manage to still come off as teenagers, very realistic It s also creepy, all that raising the dead was well done.The character of Chloe is likable Lets talk about Derek, cus I love him He is described as being ugly and scary but the way he is super sexy Yeh I know its YA, but he is still sexy, the other characters create a good foundation for a very solid read As I said I was surprised that it was sooooo good, and I will be continuing the series I sat down at my computer this morning and tried to think of something interesting to say about my reading experience of The Summoning It seems though, that all of my creative faculties have been sucked away since I spent eighty percent of this book imagining what the story COULD have been.The story is like the little engine that could It has the potential, it s chugging away, it s working hard Only as it turns out it s The Little Engine That Could Have Been Something interesting.The first pa I sat down at my computer this morning and tried to think of something interesting to say about my reading experience of The Summoning It seems though, that all of my creative faculties have been sucked away since I spent eighty percent of this book imagining what the story COULD have been.The story is like the little engine that could It has the potential, it s chugging away, it s working hard Only as it turns out it s The Little Engine That Could Have Been Something interesting.The first part of The Summoning was great It was creepy with freaky ghosts and our protagonist Chloe Saunders being put in a Group Home for disturbed children That s the first eighty or so pages and then the story abruptly stops there The ghosts, the spooky atmosphere and all that doesn t show up very much from then on There s a few instances but they re no longer scary and frankly the focus of the story is on the Group Home from then on, which I found really frustrating and annoying.There s even these tantalizing hints that there s a supernatural community out there somewhere that Chloe could escape to Yet do we get to see it No I doubt there could have been aeffective way of annoying me This book was the biggest tease Everything it seemed to promise was just smoke and mirrors behind what it really provided What it really provided wasn t at all great.Chloe is not a great character Armstrong seems unable to decide what kind of person Chloe is Most of the time she is docile and a bit of a push over She s a self prescribed rich brat She never puts up a fight with anyone oh of course EXCEPT for the people who could help her That s right The big intimidating guy with a violent history is the perfect person to practice your bravado on I know she s only supposed to be fourteen but she s just a non event There s nothing interesting about her She spends most of the story just annoying me with her patheticness.The other characters are just boring I had no interest in any of them I kept waiting for something interesting to happen someone interesting to come along but they never did It was agonizingly painful and disappointing Warning Spoilers below What the hell I have never been so disappointed in the ending of a book my life She has this great escape from the Group Home that we ve been forced to suffer through for pretty much the entire book, only to end up in yet another asylum I have no interest in reading on I ve already read Armstrong s Stolen and the asylum in that was boring enough Not interested in going through it again And the big reveal at the end Okay, sit around kiddies, it s time for a plot lesson from Mrs Kennedy Gather in close, okay For all of you writing a story or novel, do not, and I repeat, do not make the big reveal at the end of your story so painfully obvious from a quarter in, okay The Group Home is evil Dang, I didn t figure that out two hundred pages ago Stop, I never saw THAT coming Rolls eyes Oh no Who are we to believe in now that it turns out that the Group Home is evil The very foundation of our world has been turned upside down Okay, I just woke up so my sarcasm o meter is on full throttle right now Aunt Lauren made absolutely no freakin sense, by the way I feel like it was flung in there at the last moment as a shock and awe tactic It wasn t shocking, it wasn t awing it was just stupid.So, over all, I was quite underwhelmed with this book and I have absolutely no intention of reading the others I ll stick with Armstrong s adult fiction from now on like Tatiana told me I should I thought this book was pretty good I thought the blurb sounded good when it mentioned Chloe seeing ghosts I mean the first ghost she saw as a child would have freaked me clean out Later on Chloe is 15 and in high school She has a breakdown at school, or so they think, really she just saw a ghost that keeps melting his skin and looking all creepy But this book is not what it seems at all Poor Chloe finally gets sent to the Lyle House for special kids She has no idea No one would say w I thought this book was pretty good I thought the blurb sounded good when it mentioned Chloe seeing ghosts I mean the first ghost she saw as a child would have freaked me clean out Later on Chloe is 15 and in high school She has a breakdown at school, or so they think, really she just

say what was wrong with me They had me talk to a bunch of doctors and they ran some tests, and I could tell they had a good idea what was wrong and just wouldn t say it That meant it was bad This wasn t the first time I d seen people who weren t really there That s what Aunt Lauren had wanted to talk to me about after school When I d mentioned the dream, she d remembered how I used to talk about people in our old basement My parents figured it was my creative version of make believe friends, inventing a whole cast of characters Then those friends started terrifying me, so much that we d moved.There are a small cast of characters at the Lyle House Derek, Simon, Tori, Rae, etc Some of them have abilities like Chloe and some of them finally inform her of what she truly is and that they the supernaturals are in danger If your looking for a young adult, somewhat creepy book then you should pick this one up I m holding myself back from spoilers And I really want to continue on with the series to see what happens with these special kids There are bad people out there that want to do them harm MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List This book was nearly impossible to put down and I have no doubt that the menacing allure of the setting and plot hindered my ability to do so There were several compelling plot points going on in this chilling tome, but somehow they not only found a way to co exist, they actually enhanced one another The idea of necromancers alone was an eerily intriguing concept but to then confound it with a mental institution setting was sheer sinister brilliance As if it weren t creepy enough for the hero This book was nearly impossible to put down and I have no doubt that the menacing allure of the setting and plot hindered my ability to do so There were several compelling plot points going on in this chilling tome, but somehow they not only found a way to co exist, they actually enhanced one another The idea of necromancers alone was an eerily intriguing concept but to then confound it with a mental institution setting was sheer sinister brilliance As if it weren t creepy enough for the heroine to see ghosts, she is then locked up in a home for mentaly disturbed teens That is evil genius on the author s part, and I ate it up I had so many conflicting emotions while reading this book, though suspicion and fear ruledoften than not Yet despite my constant suspicion of nearly everyone, I was still floored by the twist I knew that Rae s idea was unwise, but I had no idea how unwise To this I say, Well played Kelley Armstrong And speaking of being played, I feel as though I should be angry that I find myself lusting after a character with an obvious attitude problem who has been plagued with a puberty smack down Nevertheless, Derek shines and I am looking forward toof his keen observations and snide remarks.In summary, The Summoning is a freakishly entrancing read with a brilliant plot, menacing setting, and intriguing character I m excited to see how it all ends
