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.
"The Summoning" 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. All in all, I enjoyed it.
