Pocket Books seem intent on giving Doyle as many adventures as possible, despite the fact that he only got nine episodes on TV.

Anyway, Cameron Dokey, whose previous novels include an entry in the CHARMED series, as well as the BUFFY novel HERE BE MONSTERS, gets to cram another case inbetween CITY OF and HERO. Well, actually between RM W/A VU and HERO since Cordy's flatmate Phantom Dennis is also featured.

As usual, it's Doyle's vision that kick-starts the investigation. This time TPTB are inconsiderate enough to send it to him whilst he's out on a late-night hunt for some Guinness. Even worse, when he comes round, he drives potential victim Terri Miller into the arms of the suave stranger, who just happens to belong to a mysterious cult.

Further investigation leads the team to conclude that the fire demon cult referred to in the vision could bring about the end of the world, which would at least put an end to the series of murders that the LAPD are investigating. Kate Lockley might not be directly involved in the Krispy Kritter Killer investigation, but she still gets a fair amount to do, including getting flak from the officer in charge of the case, and sending her friend Deirdrie Arenson to Angel.

To be honest, I'd like to see Pocket Books starting to give us some more upto date ANGEL novels, and it's starting to become a drag having the original line-up return for book after book.

Having said that, THE SUMMONED is a pretty enjoyable read, although it's nothing spectacular.
