I just finished reading Kelley Armstrong's The Summoning—her first young adult novel, as well as the first book in a projected trilogy—and I thought it was awesome: totally fun, totally exciting, creepy in the best possible way. Even the cover art was about a thousand cuts above her usual stuff (although a little too reminiscent of Cynthia Leitich Smith's Tantalize). BUT! HOWEVER! HEED MY WARNING! This story ends on a nasty cliffhanger, and the next book isn't due out until May of 2009, so bear that in mind. Really slow readers should pick this up around Valentine’s Day, average-speed readers should wait until Easter, and speed readers should probably hold off until just before the next book comes out, because I promise: you'll be climbing the walls.
