A disappointing let-down, especially after THE SUMMONING. But for the stone on Chloe's necklace changing color (from red to blue), hardly anything changed in terms of situation, plot advancement, or character development, making this volume nothing more than 360 pages of "filler." I am
giving two stars instead of one, only because I enjoyed the first book in the series immensely and hope the next will see an improvement. I will likely wait for the paperback version instead of rushing out for the hardcover as I did with THE AWAKENING.
