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

TPTB are inconsiderate enough to send it to him whilst he's out on a late-night

victim Terri Miller into the arms of the suave stranger, who just happens

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