Review: The Summoning (Darkest Powers Trilogy #1) by Kelley Armstrong

This book is pretty good given that upon appearance I was not that impressed because really after Twilight came out paranormal romance has become huge and is really getting on my nerves now! Yet this book defied everything I've just said and adds an extra kick by making it almost impossible to set down!!

I honestly don't want to give the plot away (although I think I all ready have in my first line:) ) so please don't continue unless you have read the book and would like to contribute to the conversation! I love how creeped out I was throughout the whole book! The idea of a group of teenagers been confounded in a mental institution for supposed 'mental issues' was stunning! A idea running off of governments having secret organisations which deal with supernaturals like in all the comics we all love! Armstrong was able to take it to the next step by making her protagonist, whom all ready sees ghosts, be locked up in a mental institution, my attention did not waver till I had finished. All though during the majority of the book I was filled with pure terror my attention was slightly wavered at times by the cynical and (supposed) not so attractive Derek who made me love him (use a little ;) ) he captured my attention through his snide remarks and intelligence ( yes I know in real life it is preferable to ram a pencil in there eye but in the pages of a book they appear to be completely different.)

My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost - and the ghost saw me.Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the home isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? It's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House...before its skeletons come back to haunt me.

I have all ready read the other books, both amazing but the first book is my favourite! Definitely recommend this for those who don't mind the feeling of fingers running down their back the whole time their reading!
