Recommended Read - Summoned by Susan Noble

Summoned (The Elemental)Summoned by Susan Leigh Noble

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Set in a mystical land, this book was a refreshing change from many of the "spin-off" paranormal/fantasy books that have made their way into the market. The characters were deep and interesting, and the writing style was unique and well-done.

The story follows Lina as she finds herself fighting an urge to leave her known life behind and head north to the unknown. Along the way, she is captured by gypsies, saved by a knight, and makes friends with a motley assortment including a former thief and a large black dragon.

As a cat lover, I especially loved the character Tosh, who is Lina's faithful telepathic cat.

There were still a few grammatical/spelling errors in this book, but overall I still felt it was worthy of 5 stars because the story made up for the errors.
