My rating: 3 of 5 stars

High Summons is a debut young adult urban fantasy and takes place in Rochester, New York state.

Jon is an eighteen year old student, he’s always known he was different from others, he could do magic and he was a wizard’s son, yet he drifted in life with no real purpose.

One evening he meets Jordan in a strange book store and is introduced to the world of demon hunting. Jordan agrees that Jon can become his apprentice while he sets out to stop a large demon summoning. It’s a steep learning curve for Jon with an introduction to an epic array of demons.

While Jordan tries to identify a fifth magical figure to be recruited by a rogue team, he leads Jon all over Rochester. They encounter hunters and magic folk while Jon struggles with his absent father’s loss and his reasons for leaving Jon with no training.

Of all the magical action in this book I enjoyed the warp folding style of travel the most and the fight scenes less so. There is a need to tighten the writing to make the dialogue and action vivid with less tendency towards info dumping in places. I’m sure the author will grow as a writer with her subsequent work.

Book Description

Jon Blythe is sick of waiting for his Yoda. After years of hiding his magic, he’s ready to retire from his mortal life, drop out of college, and jump into the world of demon hunters. He just didn’t really expect a bleach blond bookstore clerk with light up toys for weapons. Unfortunately, Jordan is Jon’s only hope. When rogue magic users come to Rochester with a malicious plan, the odd couple strikes out to save the day. Jordan might not be what Jon expected, but between demons and Econ homework, the demons win every time. Wild nights drag Jon further from normal into the world where his father vanished. Maybe he’s becoming an addict. Maybe magic just comes with a price. Either way, he’s hooked.

Guest Author Niki Barrie

Please join me in welcoming Niki Barrie as today’s guest author;

NAME: Nicoletta (Niki) Barrie
LIVE: Rochester, NY
STARTED WRITING: as a child…maybe 9 years old–poetry and essays
BOOKS I like writing:: I’ve written only one book — children’s fiction and I like it the best of anything I’ve written because I could be so creative. I’ve written a PDF that is a giveaway with my novel called “What You Need to Know before You Adopt a Dog,” available at http://dog-rescue-iowa.org/free-e-book-what-you-need-to-know-before-you-adopt-a-dog/,

and a chapter of nonfiction book Return to Big Grass, but otherwise my writing has all been for magazines.
THREE TIPS on Writing/Publishing:
1. Know your audience. This is true in the nonfiction market and though I’m new to fiction, I believe it is true there as well.
2. The publishing industry has been and continues to be changing constantly. Be prepared for it.
3. Know the English language (or whatever language you are writing in).
LAST BOOK I read: The Panther by Nelson DeMille; I love his books.. He’s an excellent writer, but this one wasn’t as interesting as the others (I’ve read them all).
