Excerpt from, The Book of Summoning:
Law One: A summoner is responsible for all creatures it lets through from the netherworld.
Dacie Cantar wishes someone had explained the Laws of Summoning to her before she watched a shadowy creature crawl out of a painting at the local arcade. At least it explains the strange things she's witnessed since moving in with her great-aunt, after her mother’s untimely death. But who wants to be followed by shadows the rest of their life? Add that to being stalked by a strange boy at school, who just might be her Tovaros (aka soulmate), it’s about all Dacie can handle in her new life.
As she nears her seventeenth birthday, will she be ready for her new responsibilities, or will the shadows that stalked her mother until her death, finally consume Dacie, too? And then there’s Law Two…
I wasn't sure what to expect with Summoner Rising. I was intrigued by the "Laws" and I wanted to know what a summoner is. There is a Mortal Instruments vibe where the summoners must defeat demons and maintain balance and peace. Daciana is the main character but I felt her attitude was a bit much. Though she is determined to learn what it means to be Summoner and fix her wrongs. Overall I enjoyed reading Summoner Rising.
I would give Summoner Rising 4 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
