The Summoning (Darkest Powers Series #1) by Kelley Armstrong, Paperback | Barnes & NobleĀ®

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? User reviews. Overall rating. Already have an account? Log in now or Create an account. October 03, As YA urban fantasies go, this series debut has some promising attributes. The writing is solid and the first-person experience is brought to us by a quick-study heroine, who presents as neither whiny nor prone to wallowing in her own self-absorbtion.


And the author's voice is appealing enough to carry the reader along through some of the more plodding points in the pacing. The continual references to movies and directing were a consistent and approachable plot device, which seemed effective in alleviating some of the obvious believability concerns. I was also pleased to find more personal depth and substance explored than much of what I normally see in YA of this genre. There is a poignant consideration granted to mental illness, while a clear separation is defined between it and the supernatural angle.

The most pleasant surprise was Derek's character. Not the eye-candy obvious hero material that so many YAs would have the reader fall for--he's more of a stalwart anti-hero with a lot of developing potential. On the downside of things, this reader perceived a nagging lack of detail to the physical and setting descriptions--which kept certain scenes from fully coming to life.

It also seemed to take longer than necessary to get to the point. As a result, the worldbuilding felt stunted and draggy. The cliffhanger ending didn't score any bonus points in this reviewer's eyes, either.

I suspect that, once you make it through this first book, the series must really pick up steam. I liked it just well enough that I might consider reading one or two more to confirm this, but I wouldn't say I have an urgent NEED to read further. Although, a cheap cliffhanger-with-no-resolution ending tends to annoy the need right out of me. Report this review Comments 0 Was this review helpful to you?

Is Chloe hallucinating? Or does she see ghosts?

The Summoning by Kelly Armstrong - Book Trailer

December 11, Chloe Saunders is fifteen years old. And she can see ghosts. Of course, when she starts freaking out about something that's other people can't see, they assume she schizo and stick her in a group home: Lyle House.

See a Problem?

Chloe soon realises that there's a lot more to Lyle House than meets the eye. This was great. I stayed up still about midnight reading it because 1 it was really good and I didn't want to put it down and 2 because it was really creepy and I wanted to find out the ending.

Darkest Powers Tales

It was creepy. And it doesn't help that I have a bit of an overactive imagination. Like, when she was talking about that ghost with the melted face, and those rotting corpses One thing that bugged me during the story was that Chloe was always either 1 in denial, 2 paranoid or 3 unable to come up with her own ideas. That annoyed me. She couldn't come up with her own ideas. When they told her she was schizo, she was in denial, and then believed it. When Simon and Derek told her she was a necromancer, she was in denial, and then she believed it.

It kind of went on like this Anyway, overall, this was a really good book. Good Points. Louisa Top 50 Reviewer reviews. Report this review Comments 1 Was this review helpful to you? The Summoning.

Darkest Powers Trilogy: The Summoning Bk. 1 by Kelley Armstrong (2008, Hardcover)

This book kept me up at night. Partially because I really wanted to read to find out what would happen next, and the other part was that I was so damn creeped out! Oh, and is it weird that I have a crush on Derek? Chloe Chloe Chloe What do you see? November 22, Reader reviewed by Mercedes This is my first review. So be patient with me! I never really found another author i liked until i was given The summoning by kelley Armstrong as a gift.

  • Product details.
  • Relative Grief: Parents and children, sisters and brothers, husbands, wives and partners, grandparents and grandchildren talk about their experience of death and grieving!
  • Corporate Crime, Law, and Social Control.
  • Due to bad experiences as a child she doesn't want to acknowledge she can actually hear and see dead people. She trys to avoid it in most of the book but all the ghosts want is help from her because she can hear them. She is thrown in a house called the lyle house with other unique teens because everyone thinks she is "crazy".

    At first she was made to believe that she has schizo. She starts to think she is a freak but she isnt at all. I dont like spoiling the ending for anyone. I am on book 2 in the series now more intense.. If you like books about the unknown Have a great week everyone and a lovely Thanksgiving!
