I really liked this book so much. I am into paranormal books and this one was just fantastic. I loved the characters of Daciana and Tryan. The story begins with Dacie moving in with her great aunt Katya because Dacie’s mother died. Dacie starts to see shadows moving in her peripheral vision all the time, or so she thinks so. She makes a fast couple of friends. A boy takes a liking to Daciana, but she isn’t really interested. She meets this other boy named Tryan and he seems mysterious. He kind of seems to always watch Daciana when she is not looking. Later in the book, Daciana looks at a painting in a bathroom while out with her friends and she notices that the painting moves. Then pops out a strange looking creature.

Later she discovers that she is a Summoner and their job is to be a pathway for demons. She must use paintings and focus on them to release them and her responsibility is to let the creatures, monsters, etc into this world and then later paint them back into the paintings so they will be trapped in the paintings. She must monitor them and responsibility to put them back.

There is a book of rules for Summoners and everything. Along with rules, there is a senate and people who will punish Summoners who don’t follow through with the laws. Once Daciana turns 17 her Summoner training is supposed to begin, but somehow before her 17 birthday she summons an Ifrit. Dacie has a hard time believing her great aunt about all this and its such a new territory for Dacie. since she knows little about her family from Romania. Her aunt tells her that Summoners also have a Tavros which is supposed to help her in her journey as a Summoner.

Later after discovering that Tryan is a Tavoros, Dacie learns that once a Summoner chooses a Tavros they are bonded for life. Dacie and Tryan become closer and after they hunt a demon down and Tryan gets hurt they discover that they are meant to be bonded and Tryan ends up healing faster because of her being so close to him. Later on, in the book, Daciana ends up letting out a Wendigo and it gets loose and it ends up catching up with Dacie and Tryan. This other summoner comes to town named Liana who came to town because the senate was punishing Tryan for other crimes.

They all end up taking down the Wendigo. Lastly, throughout the book there is mention of a shadow that whispers Daciana’s name and at the end, once she turns 17 she finally can see the shadows form into shapes now and she chases the shadow and it tells her that he killed her mother and now he will kill her. I really loved this book, it was an easy read. I will definitely be reading the next book!
