I read most of this series out of order but I think this is my favorite of them all. Marian and her hamster Tuck always make me smile. There something a bit more compelling though in the story of the Sorcerers I thought then the Circlets and Marshalls.I admit that I wasn't sure if she really would choose to stay considering of all the ones I've read she had the most compelling reason to return to earth. And there was that moment with her brother that I totally teared up.But I was rather frustrat [...]
The 2nd in what I guess to be a series of 6 or 7. Where the guardian of honor was a great introduction to the world of Lladrana, this book was an even more poignant illustration of the conflict that each of the 'summoned' must feel when asked to stay in Lladrana or retreat back to Exotique Terre (Earth). Another thoroughly enjoyable book from Robin D. Owens.
I love the hamsterThe series is great.
I liked the world she went to, but I had a hard time staying with this book. I don't know why I found it slow. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for a fantasy right now.
Well, I'll probably keep reading this series as I own it all already. But if it wasn't for that I doubt I would track down the rest of the series. So, this was less engaging because I suspect some of the appeal of the first book was that everything was all new to me. And while you are seeing things through another factions perspective in this one isn't enough to really keep me engaged. The romance is dull. From the get go we know who she will end up with. There are misunderstandings and whatnot [...]
Not as suprising as the first book, it was nevertheless quite good. It brings us again into Llandrana and fighting monsters. However, in this book we finally meet a master who makes these monsters and who is ultimately defeated by the main character - another woman from Earth with strong magic abilities. Since her abilites are stronger than those of Alexa (first summoned Earthling), she was summoned for sorcerers and trains to be one. The usual plot - her falling for a man and the reciprocity of [...]
This is a DNF (did not finish) for me. Though I love Owens Celta series, this one doesn't work for me. Although the world is interesting, I find I'm unable to look past the strangeness of two women being transported to an alternate universe and not reacting to it at all. A simple "oh, this is strange" does not suffice when one is sucked through a vortex and into a world with magic and monsters and forced mating andwell, you get the idea. I'm willing to suspend disbelief to a certain extent, but [...]
Well. My main prob with this book was that I couldn't connect to Marian. I found her annoying and rather wimpy. I hate it when heroines get credit for doing nothing. That seemed to happen a lot with Marian. I never really got her Power or what benefit it was for anything. Lightening. Whoopie. Now using it for striking monsters, I'd think she would be unstoppable. But she's all squeamish about killing even the monsters. Bleg. Never did get how being sorceress of Faith applied to her. Still, the s [...]
I really enjoyed this book. Marian is a strong, intelligent and funny person. Even though she is in a different world, doesn't speak the language and is suddenly a sorceress in training, she doesn't come off weak or helpless. I love her intelligence and loyalty to her brother. I especially loved her little hamster, Tuck. While each story focused on the heroine assimilated to Aimee, there is the overarching story of a great evil taking over the planet. It adds adventure and action to the story an [...]
Pleasant addition to Owens' "The Summoning" series. I liked that, unlike Alexa, Marian had a family and a place on Earth and she had to decide between the two. Of course, I'd have been disappointed if she'd made a different choice than she did. Tuck's transformation was neat - and I suspect more meaningful than it seems at first. Liked the tiny bit of time travel too.[Copied across from Library Thing; 25 September 2012]
This was a better installment, but not enough to garner an extra star. I thought Marian was a bit more interesting than Alexa, but I still don't have the connection to this series that I did with the Heartmate series. I think it is that the Heartmate series just has better male leads. The ones from Llandrana are more reactive than proactive.
So far I've dropped it in the tolet and not read the first book but this far it's actually rather good. I really enjoyed this. Not amazing writing and nothing all that new but a fast, fun read - popcorn book all the way. I'll read the others if I can get my hands on themr some reason it's really difficult to find these books. None of the book stores in town carry them.
I love the HeartMates series by Robin D. Owens but wasn't too sure about reading this series as I thought it was more science fiction.I am happy to say I was quite wrong and glad I decided to go ahead and read this series. As usual Robin Owens does not disappoint. She provides a rich background and a wonderful story.
The first book in this series, Guardian of Honor, was good. Interesting premise, nice fantasy elements, some new ideas.This one was okay. But it felt likea romance novel with a thin veneer of a fantasy novel pasted over it. What happened between the first one and this one? I don't know. But it was just okay.
I Like reading about Fantay and The Paranoramal stores, this one did not hit me like other books I have reded in the pass. This book reads like it is for teens. I would not recommond this book to my friends. I would like to read Book 1 to get a better understanding of the book and where it's going.
I was glad to see Owens come out with a series other than the Celta novels. This is the second in this series and I did not enjoy it quite as much as the first. There were questions that still needed answering, but it's still an enjoyable read.
#2 in The Summoning series; once again a woman from Earth is summoned to assist this world against monsters. Good quick read.
I am absolutely loving these books.
A nice sequel to Guardian of Honor. Another woman is summoned to Amee. Like Alexa, Marian finds power and love. An unpretentious romantic fantasy. And love the magic hamster!
Sorceress of Faith (The Summoning, Book 2) by Robin D. Owens (2006)
Almost as good as the first book, but I am a magic fan. It was well thought out and everything fell into place.
This book was a real struggle to get through. I only continued reading it because I enjoyed the other books in the series and wanted to know Marian's history.
Excellent Book!!! I absolutely couldn't put it down and stayed up way late into the night reading it, as I just had to find out how it ended!
I liked this book so much better then the first book. It explained so much more about the story then the first one.
I liked the first book in the series better. This felt more formulaic, and I found the characters less interesting.
Another great book. I could really identify with the heroine. Fun secondary character, too, in Tuck (a hamster).
A fun read.
