The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

When most people think of Paranormal YA, they think of Twilight, I think of The Summoning published in 2008 by Harper Collins.

In her debut YA novel, Kelley Armstrong (Authors of the popular Women of the Otherworld series) brings not only the fun and excitement related to Paranormal Fiction but realistic characters that pop from the page.

One day at school, fifteen-year-old Chloe Saunders starts to see ghosts. Her reaction sets off a chain of events that land her in ‘Lyle House’ a place for “troubled teens”.

At Lyle House Chloe runs into a slew of suspicious administrators and kids very much like herself. It is there she finds that she is not the only one with paranormal problems.

I don’t want to spoil this great trilogy for you. Readers of Armstrong’s adult novels will be plesantly surprised that her Young Adult trilogy resides in the same ‘universe’ as her adult novels.

The second book The Awakening is out as of last year, and the third and final book of The Darkest Powers trilogy The Reconing is due out April 2010. So don’t worry, you still have time to catch up with the fans of this fab series.
