I've read a lot of urban fantasies, and even more young adult fantasies.

Format: Paperback
Ms. Wolf sets her story in a Los Angeles that isn't Hollywood glitz and glamour. Rather, it's a place where actual people live, work, eat, sleep, drive. And maybe, escape from a dangerous family and a disturbing past, while surviving, day to day, without the comfort and aid of a ... pack.

Into this LA she has placed Amber, a run-away daughter of the Wolf Kind. This teenager can become her wolf-self in the blink of an eye, complete with throat-tearing-out ability and a taste for raw meat and fresh blood. She has a moral conscience, and a strong sense of right, but she's got a take-no-**** attitude that she just barely manages to keep leashed. I love her.

Some of my favorite passages are when Amber is described in all of her Uber-canine glory, tasting scents with her wolf's tongue hanging out, howling "her grief, her loss, her betrayal" at the moon over the Hollywood Hills, running to exhaustion at the ocean's edge, frolicking in the surf, taunting and playing with the lesser domesticated members of the species.

The story is compelling, and written with an easy style that drew me along, and made me want to meet this girl, her demon boyfriend, her allies and enemies, and mostly the shape changers of wolf and other kinds (I'm not going to give any more away on that point--READ IT!) I want this kind of magic to exist on the streets of some city somewhere. It offers that kind of wistful, wishful escape narrative. I want more ...

Summoning is centered on sixteen-year-old Amber a wolf-shifter, and daughter of the moon wolf (moon wolf's significance isn't explained in the book but is hinted that her lineage is important). Amber is on the run from her family, and living in the city of Los Angeles as a painter/construction worker (I think). On one of Amber's daily runs, she finds herself enthralled by the drumming on the hilltop. Upon arrival Amber notices that she just interrupted a group of Wiccan witches in the middle of a ritual and they're about to kill a demon. The witches spares the demon's life, letting Amber dispose of the demon as she wishes but she instead finds herself bound to the demon as his master. The demon Richard warns Amber of a coming catastrophe that's heading straight for L.A and that she is the city only hope to stop it. The last thing Amber wanted was to be stuck with a demon but she isn't about to let the city she loves be destroyed. Amber and Richard will have to get all the help they can get to stop the World Snake and Eater of Souls.

The Summoning is labeled as an urban fantasy (adult I think) but it read more like a younger YA book, I mean the main heroine is sixteen-years-old but that isn't the problem. The writing and dialogue seemed choppy and amateurish, and while the heroine is a teenager...the way she acted, talked, her living situation, and job didn't seem like she was sixteen more like in her early-middle twenties. When I initially found this book, I thought the cover and synopsis sounded interesting and plus it had great reviews but it wasn't what I expected. The Summoning had way too many plot holes that left me confused and full of questions at the end of the book. For example the World snake and Eater of Souls, what are they exactly and why are they headed for L.A?

Wow, where do I start? I've read a lot of urban fantasies, and even more young adult fantasies. This book, starring a 16 year old wolf girl and a seemingly 16 year old demon boy, is ridiculously good. First of all, this author sure can write. (Don't even get me started on some of the drivel masquerading as kindle books right now.) She has a way with words that is both lyrical and fast paced. There is a very adult element to the book. It really doesn't hit home that the story revolves around 16 year olds till Amber or Richard are described as such. Amber is a great spunky heroine, L.A. is an awesome cityscape for sorcerers, the World Snake is coming to devour the city, the Eater of Souls has arrived, and the love story is sweet and sad. 5 stars. Can't wait for book 2!

PS. There is one thing that I wish was described better. Amber's wolf form is many times alluded to as "big" or "bigger". When I picture the scene in my head, I honestly can't tell exactly how big "big" is. It's so subjective unless given in relation to something else. (A little spolier here.) At one point she jumps twenty stories and she states that she's so big it's nice not to have to worry about falling because she can just skip down. Oh, THAT big, was my reaction. But this was the only thing in the narrative that took me out of being in the moment.

Format: Paperback
I should have been doing other things.....
But I found myself sneaking off to read a few more pages of this book whenever I could. It engages the reader from page one; drawing them in with the familiarity of our own world, and gradually leading them down a path that takes them into a subculture that exists congruent with our own.
The characters, be they human, witch, or shapeshifter, have day jobs. They're housewives, they wrangle cash registers, they refinish floors.
Amber, for all of what she is...is still a rebellious teenager; a little self-possessed, more than a little arrogant, and determined to be her own person (wolf?).
There are passages that will stay with me, particularly the descriptions of the power of music; how it can gather power and make a place "somewhere that you just want to be".
This book, although directed at younger readers, kept me entranced...and I haven't been young (in years) in a very long time. I look forward to more in this series!
