On an empty baseball diamond in a quiet Toronto suburb, a demon has been summoned. Seventeen-year-old Alton is miles away, just wishing he had a tutor he didn’t outsmart or outmatch. His prayers are answered when Professor Victor Orvius makes an unexpected visit, offering to teach Alton magic without the restrictions.
The only condition is that he follow Orvius’s rules and not ask too many questions. Alton soon discovers he’s not Orvius’s only student.
Reagan is a competitive young witch with a bad attitude and talent for sarcasm. Their personalities clash, causing trouble for both on more than one occasion, until they realize a greater threat than being one-upped. The demon threatens not only their chances at passing their magic finals — it threatens their lives.
If Alton and Reagan can’t learn to get along, they could be facing their deaths…or an eternity together, trapped in another realm.
I am a sucker for YA books about young wizards and witches who are coming into their powers. After reading the description for Summoned, I knew this was a book that I was going to have to read. But would the characters be interesting enough and the plot line unique enough to hold my interest? I am glad to say that it did!!
Summoned takes place in Canada and follows Alton and Reagan, two young magic scholars who clash in personality but challenge each other in all the right ways. Taught by Orvis, this intriguing trio of characters have a wonderful banter about them. I found myself laughing at their antics and worrying about them when they got into hot water.
With nods to other YA books throughout, Summoned is a fun, quick listen that the whole family can enjoy together. I can’t wait for the rest of the trilogy to become available so I can find out what happens to Alton and Reagan!
