Book Review: The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for disturbed teens.
At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her room mate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behaviour. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems…? Chloe realizes that if she doesn’t uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse…? Can she trust her fellow students, and does she dare reveal her dark secret?

This book was awesome. It took a slightly different take on your average supernatural. It had me on the edge of my seat and I loved the characters. You've got all kinds of bad guys and weirdos and some scientists in this one. I'm not sure what else to say about it other than I loved it :). If you're a fan of paranormal books than you should definitely try this one. If you're bored with the endless paranormal romances that all end the same then pick up this book. That's all I got. Thanks for reading!

Up next is The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong, the second book in this trilogy.


  1. I just read this book myself. I did like the book, I just thought it slowed down a little too much in the middle. But the beginning and ending had me wanting more. Can't wait to read Awakening.

  2. OMG. I FREAKING LOVE THIS SERIES. I love the characters and he whole concept of the book! :D I could read this again and again! (:
