Read The Summoning (Darkest Powers, #1) Online Free - 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 sat down at my computer this morning and tried to think of something interesting to say about my reading experience of The Summoning. It seems though, that all of my creative faculties have been sucked away since I spent eighty percent of this book imagining what the story COULD have been.

This book was nearly impossible to put down and I have no doubt that the menacing allure of the setting and plot hindered my ability to do so.
There were several compelling plot points going on in this chilling tome, but somehow they not only found a way to co-exist, they actually enhanced one an...

Reading this book made me clench my jaw so much it's still hurting several hours later. Although the story is not a standalone, it really left me with a bone chilling feeling and I truly can't wait for the next book in the series.
Chloe's a young girl struggling with her new found power, Lyle Hous...

I think I’m one of the last people to read this! I’ve heard nothing but how good this novel is, and that I must read it ASAP. When I received a copy of The Awakening, the next novel, I knew that I needed to read The Summoning, right away. (I’m almost glad I waited to read it, so I could start The...

This book turned me into a shameless fiend for the Chloe and Derek relationship - I adored their banter, and their romantic date in the basement with the dead bodies, and their other romantic encounter in the shower. (Note: my views on what is romantic may be deeply weird.)
On the first read, I fo...

This book was ^^SURPRISINGLY GOOD!^^ .
At first I thought it was kinda weird but that made me read it more to find out what was going on.
This book has everything a book needs.
Interesting, mind you, very interesting, characters, mystery, crazy people, and a writing style that says, "If you put me d...
