The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong September 16, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — cardinallibrary @ 11:29 pm

Read this over the summer and really enjoyed it.  However, I do have one major complaint:  I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL MAY 2009 FOR THE SEQUEL!!  ( I want it now)  Anyway, here is a summary of the book:

“Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for ‘disturbed teens’. At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her room mate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behaviour. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems…?”

The author, Kelley Armstrong, created a pretty cool website for the series:

And, she has also released the prologue and first chapter of The Summoning online.  So if you would like a taste before you look for it in the library, see below:
