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
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 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 wo
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 t
Reading this book made me clench my jaw so much it s still hurting several hours later Although the story is not a standalone, it really left me with a bone chilling feeling and I truly can t wait for the next book in the series.Chloe s a young girl struggling with her new found power, Lyle House and her housemates, the setting itself is filled with teenage hormones and jealousy It s filled with mysteries and no one seems to be what they appear,this is especially true for her housemates We jo Reading th
I think I m one of the last people to read this I ve heard nothing but how good this novel is, and that I must read it ASAP When I received a copy of The Awakening, the next novel, I knew that I needed to read The Summoning, right away I m almost glad I waited to read it, so I could start The Awakeni
I need to get my hands on the sequel The ending has left me wanting As seen on The Readventurer The Summoning is the first YA novel written by Kelley Armstrong It tells a story of Chloe, a 15 year old girl who suddenly finds herself capable of seeing ghosts Only, of course, nobody believes her and she is quickly sent to a boarding house for disturbed kids for psychological evaluation It turns out however, that the house and its inhabitants are not quite what they seem to be.While this book was definitely a page turner, I was a little disappointed in it I fe As seen on The Readventurer The Summoning is the first YA novel written by Kelley Armstrong It tells a story of Chloe, a 15 year old girl who suddenly finds herself capable of seeing ghosts Only, of course, nobody believes her and she is quickly sent to a boarding house for disturbed kids for psychological evaluation It turns out however, that the house and its inhabitants are not quite what they seem to be.While this book was definitely a page turner, I was a little disappointed in it I felt that the narration dragged quite a bit in the middle of this novel and the build up to the climax of the story was too long with almost no payoff This book definitely read as a part of a trilogy it had a lot of loose ends and didn t really attempt to give a closure, even a temporary one I will continue reading this series because I am rather curious to see where the story goes and how the characters develop, but looking back, this is a type of book which is better to read once all parts of
SURPRISINGLY 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 abo SURPRISINGLY 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 hav
