The Summoning

The Summoning
by Kelley Armstrong


It's just a normal day for Chloe Saunders at A. R. Gurney High, her art school. When she picks up her things that fell on the floor after someone bumped into her, she suddenly got her period. Finally! She goes to the bathroom. When she leaves, she sees a janitor down the hallway. He yells at her to come over to him, but she runs the other way. But he appears. And it looks as if his face was melted. She heads to an empty classroom, but the principal and a teacher follow, and she is taken out of school on a stretcher.

Chloe has to go to Lyle House, with other teens that have problems similar to her own. She arrives, and meets the group: Liz, Rae, Tori, Simon, and Derek. The doctors try to convince Chloe that she has schizophrenia. But really, she knows that is not it. She sees ghosts. Derek knows what she is: a necromancer. One who speaks to the dead. Will she and her friends ever get out? And if they do, what will happen to them?

Um, WOW. This book was so totally amazing! I would've read it so much faster if I didn't have schoolwork to do. It was so surprising, and I didn't expect the other teens to be what they are. There isn't really anything else to say about this book. It was just totally amazing. I cannot wait until the second book in the Darkest Powers series comes out. Go read this book if you haven't already. You won't be disappointed! :)
