We start off with a demon being summoned which can never be a good thing. But Eaton lets that sit as she introduces Alton, who has been trying to learn everything he can to become a wizard before his exams. He's sought after and then left many tutors in search of the best one, only now, one has come to him.
Orvius promises Alton a better way of tutoring, and there in his home, Alton learns he will be training with a girl named Regan. He's never trained with a girl before as it was against the rules. But it sounds like the duo will be doing plenty of things normally frowned upon. Now they're practicing magic and summoning forbidden by The Chamber, the body that governs the magical people in the world. What does this all have to do with the demon being summoned in the beginning?
So I really liked Alton and Regan, I liked it even better once they started getting along. There were a lot of fun magical elements in the story which kept things interesting. Eaton introduced various demons that ranged from very mild to straight out scary, and I liked the unique approaches they took to get rid of them. Summoned is the first book in a series that is definitely going to go places, I'm looking forward to seeing what more is in store for this duo, well done!
For now you can read my review on Amazon and Goodreads as this was an ARC from Parliament House. Summoned is available on Amazon for $3.99.
