None of this was supposed to happen.
It all started so innocently. Charlie only stopped in Redemption, Wisconsin, because she was lost.
She never meant to stay.
She never meant to fall in love.
She never meant to bring the danger she was running from into this wholesome midwestern town.
Except Redemption had some secrets of its own ... and they were even more deadly than what she was trying to escape.
The Summoning is Part 1 of Charlie's story and it does end on a cliffhanger that is resolved in The Reckoning. Both books are a prequel to the main series and can be read before Books 1-3.
