Here's a summary for the first Darkest Powers book, The Summoning. Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behavior earns her a trip to Lyle House, a center for 'disturbed teens'. At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her room mate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behavior. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems...? Chloe realizes that if she doesn't uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse...? Can she trust her fellow students, and does she dare reveal her dark secret?
Darkest Powers does sound good! And a friend of mine has been suggesting Vampire Kisses... Unfortunately, I'm too swamped with review copies right now to read much of anything extra. Here are some of my all-time suggestions.
Seven Tears into the Sea by Terri Farley 5 stars Betsy and the Emperor by Staton Rabin 5 stars To Catch a Pirate by Jade Parker 5 stars Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran 5 stars (Adult book) Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl 5 stars Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini 5 stars Nobody's Princess & Nobody's Prize by Esther Friesner 5 stars Fire by Kristen Cashore 5 stars
I know right? Its like 5 years a book. hehe I guess you know who my namesake is then. =P lol If you like To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee you would ADORE Beautiful Creatures. Its completely awesome and very true to modern southern life. (Well, for the most part!)
errrr because i like reading any book i could get my hand on, nowadays everything is vampire and thats sorta lame(too me idk about you guys out there), so while everyone is reading vampire things im reading anything eles.
I hope for you these will be the flowers of hope that never die
Yeah, Rathina, I'm kinda like that. But working in publicity I like to read the "big things" and I have a sort of infatuation with Vampire Diaries and Twilight. But when it comes to vampire stuff I usually get mild entertainment from the storyline, hate the writing and adore the tv show/movie adaptations. Wings, I haven't read, but its alot like Faerie Path. Girl find out she's faerie, has a faerie guy and a mortal guy pulling her heartstrings... blah blah blah. Hehe, sounds good though. I just haven't had a chance to read yet.
++ Never Cry Werewolf by Heather Davis 5 of 5 stars. (Awesome short read, absolutely hilarious!)
