Summoning the Night

Arcadia Bell, #2

Jenn Bennett is practically a master of Urban Fantasy.

Things have settled down between Lon and Arcadia and they have set up some sort of routine. But there have been a few cases of children being taken and Arcadia is commissioned by Mr. Dare. He is part owner of the Hellfire Club. The commission involves helping to find the kids because they are all children of members of the Club. Arcadia doesn't want to get involved and really doesn't want to have to use her Moonchild abilities. But she can't back down and leave those children out there hurt. Plus, there's the chance of Jupiter getting hurt along the way.

Summoning the Night was just as action packed as Kindling the Moon, but there were more moments of just Lon and Cady. The world that Jenn Bennett has created is spectacular and vivid. The way that Bennett describes everything makes it very easy to imagine. Cady is a wonderful character to read about because she is strong and independent. But she still has a soft side; a part of her is still scared about her abilities and what it means to have someone know her completely.

There are interesting twists and developments in Summoning the Night that make me eager for the next book!

Book Blurb for Summoning the Night


After narrowly escaping her fate as a sacrificial scapegoat, Arcadia Bell is back to normal. Or at least as ordinary as life can be for a renegade magician and owner of a tiki bar that caters to Earthbound demons. She’s gearing up for the busiest day of the year—Halloween—when a vengeful kidnapper paralyzes the community. The influential head of the local Hellfire Club taps Cady to track down the fiendish bogeyman, and now that she’s dating red-hot Lon Butler, the Club’s wayward son, she can hardly say no.

Cady and Lon untangle a gruesome thirty-year trail of clues that points to danger for the club members’ children. But locating the person behind the terror will require some metaphysical help from Cady’s loyal bar patrons as well as her potent new Moonchild powers—and she’d better figure it out before the final victim disappears and her own darkest secret becomes her biggest enemy.

This is the second book in the Arcadia Bell series and needs to be read in order. Book 1: Kindling the Moon
