Sometimes I read too fast and can’t keep up with the reviews. Here are a few of those books.
This series had a really rough start. It had all the potential to be a great YA paranormal story. And I’m a huge fan of Armstrong’s Cainsville series, so I thought I’d give this a chance.
The Summoning follows a fifteen year old named Chloe who is sent to a group home with other “disturbed” kids after she reveals she can see ghosts. There she meets a few other “troubled” kids, the bubbly Liz, a mysterious Derek, and a friendly Simon.
My biggest problem is that this could have been a lot more exciting than it was. The beginning was pretty good, but that fades towards the middle of the story. It definitely gets a bit more interesting towards the end which is why I decided to give the next book a go.
Another awful cliffhanger lol. I’d recommend this series to everyone who loves them. This series still hasn’t caputred my attention 100%. But I’m going to keep reading them cause I’m curious to see how everything ends.
This picks up right where The Summoning ends. It starts off a bit rough, but quickly picks up. Derek is still my favorite character. He’s had such a rough life. He has no one to turn to but his foster brother. He just pulls at my heartstrings.
I had the same problem here as the first two book. This was so action packed the last 20% of the book, but everything before that was just in a sort of limbo.
I know this is an unpopular opinion probably, but I really liked the love triangle between Chloe, Simon, and Derek. I always love love triangles where you really don’t know who the end game couple is. In this instance, I really could have seen the love triangle go either way.
I also enjoyed the ending. There were a few loose ends, but nothing I couldn’t live without. I’d recommend this to younger teens looking for an entertaining paranormal story.
