The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

Last week was very busy but we were lucky enough to have Kelley Armstrong stop off at the store with Melissa Marr. I've just read her new book, The Summoning, and it's fabulous. About a girl called Chloe who has seen ghosts since she was a child but was told they were imaginary friends. As she hits puberty, they visit her again, scaring her so completely that she is taken away to a home for troubled teens to get "better". But the ghosts follow her, forcing her to believe she is actually a necromancer. And the teens at Lyle House are all somewhat special themselves. Who are they? Why are they there? And what happens to the teens who leave?

This paranormal adventure starts with teen worries and speeds toward an action-packed ending, leaving you wondering how quickly Kelley Armstrong can write the second in this trilogy. You really should take a look at it.

Kelley also left a short video book talk about The Summoning for us.

I wish I could have attended this event for I really enjoyed her new YA series debut. I read many YA books for my godchild who seems to enjoy all the books that I recommend to her. This book had me hooked from the beginning and I could not wait to finish reading it. Now...I have to wait for the next book..arrrg
