Scary fun for YA readers, The Summoning is the third novel by E.E. Richardson, a young writer with alarmingly scant internet presence - no site and little available background information. Nevertheless, her two previous books have done extremely well, and this one looks set to follow the same pattern.
"Justin hasn't ever really believed in the occult, even though his Grandpa, Blake is an expert in it and has a house full of curious objects and old tattered books on magic. But when Daniel Eilersen, the class know-it-all, starts acting all high-and-mighty, Justin thinks he can scare him by performing a magic ritual from the ancient book he's stolen from his granddad's study. His friend Trevor, who always goes along with what Justin says and his little sister, Joy, complete the group. It's all about the atmosphere of course and Justin plans to give Eilersen a proper scare, but nothing will actually happen ...Or will it ...?"
