The Summoning Review
MY OVERVIEW: I decided to read this series because I really enjoyed the Darkness Rising series. The writing is a little different in this book, and I didn’t enjoy it as much as I had hoped I would. I think it is just really funny that my sisters’ and my names appear as characters in the book (Kari, Victoria/Tori, Amanda).
PROS: I really enjoy the kids with supernatural powers plot. I know, I know… can you say “X-Men”… but really… I do enjoy it. Just like the other books I have read by this author – these books have been quick reads, but not too quick where you are left wondering what happened.
I know this is weird, but my 2 favorite characters are not the main ones. I really liked Derek and Rae. Derek just had this other side to the rough/tough/rude guy you are introduced too; and Rae – well, Rae is just fun. She is the part of your brain that makes you question if you are sane or not. ☺
CONS: I probably should have read this series before reading the Darkness Rising series. The writing style is a little different and didn’t grab my attention right away like The Gathering did. The two main characters weren’t as well written as they could have been. One minute I liked Chloe and the next I didn’t. It was the same with Simon.
MY FINAL THOUGHTS: Decent book. I will continue reading the rest of the series. I just hope it does get a little better.
