Teen Book Review – Elizabeth

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
Genre: Teen Fantasy
“My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again. All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep being ordinary. I don’t even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost- and the ghost saw me.
Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won’t leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a “special home” for troubled teens. Yet the home isn’t what it seems. Don’t tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is whose side are they on? It’s up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House… before its skeletons come back to haunt me.”
I have easily read this story ten times. The first book is a little slow at first but once you get into it, the plot becomes a labrynth of revelations and gore. From undead beings to magic of different kinds, this series has many differing types of supernaturals. It reminds me of the X-men in some ways, but to find out why, you’ll have to read it.  The Darkest Powers trilogy has a sequel series called The Darkness Rising trilogy and continues the previous story with justice.
