 "Bennett quickly establishes that her terrific debut was no fluke . . . does a stellar job blending character development with plenty of supernatural mystery and peril. A series for your keeper shelf!" (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick) --Romantic Times Book Reviews


"Scary . . . crazy . . . quirky -- exactly my kind of read!" --Karen Chance, NYT bestselling author of HUNT THE MOON


“A great off-beat debut novel with a likeable heroine and a fun, original storyline.” (Karen Chance, New York Times bestselling author)

Kindling the Moon rocks like AC/DC on Saturday night. This book has it all: great writing, action, romance, a strong heroine, a unique hero, and the best teenager ever. I can’t wait for the next one.” (Ann Aguirre, national bestselling author)

Kindling the Moon engaged me from page one. I loved it! I immediately adored the heroine, Arcadia Bell. This book is packed from cover to cover with unpredictable twists, heart-pounding action, and heated sexual tension." (Anya Bast, New York Times bestselling author)

“Debut author Jenn Bennett takes the familiar ideas of magic, demons, and mythology, and she gives us something sexy, fun, and genuinely unique in Kindling the Moon. Arcadia Bell is a sassy, whip-smart addition to the growing pantheon of urban fantasy heroines, and Bennett an author to watch!”
(Kelly Meding, author of Three Days to Dead)

I love Cady and Lon together but Jupe absolutely steals the show.

This book has a REAL couple and thank goodness no love triangles, intriguing world-building, a great plot line, and interesting secondary characters.
Van @ Short and Sweet reviews
This second book in the series made me want to read the first, so after reading Kindling the Moon I was ready for action.

Look out Mercy, Rachel, and Sookie, the urban fantasy genre has a fierce new heroine in Arcadia Bell! Bartender and magician Cady made her mark on the genre with 2011's KINDLING THE MOON and with SUMMONING THE NIGHT she is rightly taking her place alongside some of the big names. The worldbuilding full of magic and Earthbound demons is refreshing and exciting, the pace relentless, the romance subdued and sizzling in turn, and the characters engaging and oh so likeable.

Speaking of likeable, yes, Cady is an amazing protagonist who is smart and brave but not at the expense of common sense, and yes, her love interest Lon is a stone cold fox who looks like a rakish pirate and can transform into full on Hellboy mode when the need arises (and happily it does plenty of times in SUMMONING THE NIGHT), but the character who most completely stole my heart is the one I expected to like the least: Lon's fourteen year old son Jupe.

I'm generally not a fan of kids (especially teenagers) in urban fantasy, mostly because in my experience they tend to be little more than annoying, wannabe comedy relief characters who cause more problems then they solve. Adam's daughter in the Mercy Thompson series and Charlie's daughter in the Charlie Madigan series are two exceptions, and I'm thrilled to add Jupe to the top of that list. The kid is funny and smart and a little bit of a punk in a truly endearing way. Far from hindering the scenes he was in, he made them better.

My love for Jupe carried over the debut, and my only tiny criticism is that once again I thought the identity of the villain was a tad too obvious as soon as they were introduced. I do wish there had been a few less hints until later on so that the revelation could have had more impact.

The plot of SUMMONING THE NIGHT is not that great, but the characters are fantastic. And Jenn Bennett seems to understand what works in this series, because she takes time for the quiet moments, Arcadia and Jupe teasing one another, the sexual chemistry that's like a cherry on top of Arcadia and Lon's otherwise solid, settled relationship. This is an urban fantasy with magic and demons and incubi and all that jazz, but at heart it's a story about the three main characters becoming a family.

The plot has to do with a serial killer who's reemerged after a thirty-year hiatus, who's killing teenaged Earthbound demons - once again putting Jupe in danger. Arcadia and Lon dutifully investigate, propelling the story forward, but the murderer didn't make nearly as much of an impression on me as Ambrose Dare, the guy who asks Lon and Arcadia to hunt down the killer. Dare levels some pretty hideous threats against Arcadia. He struck me as the real villain, and I wanted to see a bigger reaction from Arcadia -- and an even bigger one from Lon.

But even if I have some quibbles with the novel, I finished it very happy. I've read a few sophomore efforts in the past few weeks, #2s in urban fantasy series that I'd been really looking forward to, that really disappointed me. This is the first one that actually satisfied. I love these characters. I love Arcadia and Lon and Jupe and I want to keep reading about them.

~* 3.5 Stars *~
If Arcadia Bell thought surviving her parents' Machiavellian plot was going to allow her to get back to the life she was living before they tried to sacrifice her to a ritual slaying...well, she was right. Mostly. She's settled back into her job at her tiki bar, and her relationship with Earthbound demon Lon Butler is progressing nicely. So is the one between her and Lon's son, Jupe. They're almost like a family.

Thing is, just because Cady is able to relax into a relatively normal day-to-day life doesn't mean that peace is going to last long. Before she gets too comfortable, a dark cloud of evil intention cloaks the city in tension and fear, one that directly threatens Earthbound young. A madman is kidnapping the children of the members of the Hellfire Club. The powerful head of that club, Ambrose Dare, wants it stopped before a heinous tragedy thirty years in the past is repeated in brutal, vicious fashion.

Lon may vouch for the Earthbound demon Dare, but Cady doesn't trust anyone or anything connected to the thrice damned Hellfire Club. Not to mention, tracking down a couple of missing teenagers isn't exactly in her skill set. Dare's request is compelling, though, and her power and magical skill may be all that stands between a power-hungry psychopath and the slaughtered bodies of seven children. With Lon at her side and an irrepressible Jupe winding around her heart, Cady agrees to stop the killer.

She's got to find him first, though, and the search itself may expose more than a trail to a madman. It may strip her bare and leave her helpless against someone who wants to use her power for their own ruthless games.

It can't be overstated just how much I enjoy the characters in this book.

I read and really enjoyed "Kindling The Moon", the first Arcadia Bell story and I was more than a little eager to get my hands on "Summoning the Night", book #2. I can't even begin to express how \very much I loved this installment. The storyline is even more compelling and enjoyable than in the first book. This time the town is getting ready for Halloween when kids start disappearing. This has echos of the kidnappings thirty years ago. The kidnappings quickly are found to be connected in someway to the children of members of the Hellfire club. Lon and Cady are concerned for Jupe's safety and begin to investigate the kidnappings. We also get an interesting thread regarding Jupe discovering his 'knack' or magical ability.

I have to say (again, as I mentioned this in my first review) that I absolutely love Jupe. This kid steals every scene he is written into and he stole my heart as well as Cady's long ago. I love that he is a young, mixed race teenager and not a little kid. Just by that description he is a unique character. But his personality, his impulsiveness, his gentleness, his grossness...this kid in genuine. I see so much of my teenage son in him...and Jupe just feels real. Watching Cady melt over Jupe (and Lon for that matter) is one of my favorite things about these books. The main characters are all strong and well-written. I also liked getting the chance to see more of some of the side characters we don't know very well. The one that stands out in my mind most is Bob, a regular at Cady's tiki bar. Yes, the stories are darn good also, but the characters are why I want the next book to be available to read right now!

I don't want to give any details away and since I loved the book there isn't much more I can say.
