I am a huge fan of the fact that I think the story is pretty visual. I can *see* the world the author is describing, or
rather, I don't have problems conjuring up an image in my head.
Bennett does a fantastic job with making Cady very believable and realistic. She has issues and insecurities with her relationship with the sexy demon, Lon Butler. With all the supernatural elements that take place within an urban fantasy, imo, having something that grounds the book with issues that are commonplace make it all the more remarkable.
Summoning the Night begins with a mystery that opens up more avenues in Arcadia Bell's world. This second novel is better than the first, when you think you have the villain, D'oh, try again! Though the novel also introduces a very unlikable character and I absolutely cannot wait to see where that particular interaction may head.
I will just mention the teenage element briefly. Jupiter Butler, by far, is one of my favorite characters in urban fantasy that I've read in a long while. Funny, but with smart ass tendencies and the vulnerabilities of a teenager.
The writing moves quickly, yet is easy to follow. Imaginative and visual.. Jenn Bennett creates a hell of a world and I absolutely cannot wait to see what's in store for Arcadia Bell!!

I have been looking forward to the 2nd book in this series for months!!!! What a dissapointment and waste of money this book was. The character Lon is a man without a spine. He let's Caddy's character be blackmailed, and just stands there and let's his son be kidnapped by a demon. Plus the relationship between Lon and Cady just really stays the same without any growth of there relationships. Plus at one point Caddy tells Lon there will be no more secrets between us, yet when Mr. Dare threatens and blackmails Cady and she doesn't tell him?????? Does the arthur have amnesia or what???? I do not reccomend this book to anybody, don't waste your time or money!!!
