5.0 out of 5 stars The younger years of the `Women Of The Otherworld' characters., 11 July 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Summoning: Number 1 in series: 1/3 (Darkest Powers) (Paperback)
I've read & loved every book Kelley Armstrong has wrote to date, so naturally I had to have her first young adult novel as well. It's a great book for adult fans to get a glimpse into how the younger years of `Women Of The Otherworld' characters might have been. I especially love the character Jamie Vegas, so needless to say, I love this.

15 year old Chloe Saunders wakes up one day & starts to see dead people. Yep, just like that. Of course, everyone thinks she's nuts, so she's sent to `recover from her breakdown' at Lyle House, a home for mentally disturbed teens. She's soon diagnosed as a schizophrenic, but we know better. She is a necromancer.
Soon it becomes clear that the other patients aren't what they seem either... What's going on with Lyle House?

`Young adult novel'. That phrase did make me nervous. I was half expecting to read about Daddy issues, the latest fashion & cute boys, but I can thankfully confirm that isn't the case here. Chloe - the narrator - is not spoiled, whiny or controlled by her hormones. When she is in arguments she think about how she's coming across before answering, she doesn't avenge someone when she has cause to & she says boys are low on her list of concerns. She doesn't make my blood pressure shoot up to a dangerous level.
