Summoned: The Song of Adam by Susan Jay is an urban fantasy with strong hints of romance and magic. Adam Levi Tolsen had seen her in the crowd several times at their concerts since the first day she appeared. She’d lock eyes with him and then slip away, disappearing quickly, and it is frustrating that he can’t keep her image in his mind. What he doesn’t know is that a Fairy Princess, Katriana Janius, is in love with him and she casts a spell on him that makes him forget every time appears. When Mia comes into his life, she sets off a chain of events that will change everything. Does Katriana have the courage to pursue the man she believes to be the love of her life and can Adam overcome the charms of Mia and her mischievous companions?
Susan Jay succeeds in creating a novel that features the intersection between the magical and the physical worlds. The prose is beautiful and the characters leap magically off the pages of the story. Readers are thrust into a dream-like world that feels real in a strange kind of way, the kind of strangeness that leaves them in the twilight zone between dream and waking. The psychological nature of the conflict is interesting. Adam is seduced by a woman who eludes him. The suspense is powerful and it is so deftly developed to sustain the reader’s interest. The shifts in points of view feed the suspense and augment the reader’s interest in the narrative. Summoned: The Song of Adam is surprising, with solid characters and plot twists to make for an exciting read.
