Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker.
Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can’t tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn’t the type to tolerate secrets.
Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl’s ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.
A dark twist on the genie folklore, SUMMONED follows a reluctant criminal as he unravels the mystery of the paranormal bond controlling him.
I loved this book! So good, and unique, and wonderful! I mean, Dimitri was pretty tormented, to the point that he was making up stories to justify, or to feel less guilt, over killing people, kidnapping them, because he was ordered to. Because he wouldn't kill or kidnap if not for the wishes his master made.
And his master, Karl, was an insane, evil dude. With family problems. Some that we saw throughout the novel, in that his daughter was raring up to killing him. To the end, and the reason why Dimitri was sent on so many missions throughout this book. Which I thought was fantastic, it right closed the book up, sewed all the bits together, and I know someone who likes to solve puzzles before the author intends could've figured it out, I didn't, and yeah, it was just so great to read it!!!
Him and Syd, they were a pretty fantastic couple. And connected in ways that they didn't know, yeah, it was so good, and the Aphrodite/Dionysus/golden apple thing, a cute, sweet thing, that came up 3 times, first mentioned, lack of, and presenting of. So yeah, sweet!
I loved this book, and the way that it ended, and I can't wait for ht second book, because I have no idea how the story could go from there, it seemed pretty wrapped up, but yeah, I want more!!!
