Rating ****
Tags fantasy, lladrana, doctors, series

Book 4 of Robin Owen's Summoning series, in which a country called Llandrana, on a world called Amee, summons women to help them defeat the Dark Enemy sending monsters against them. The women are modern women of the United States, mostly from the Denver area, and are summoned because of their particular talents. In this book twin healers, one a doctor, are summoned to help heal the disease the Dark has created to further weaken its enemies. Elizabeth and Bri are their names. They too, must learn quickly to adjust to a new world and to help.

This entry in the series, like the others, is well written, with good characterization and a well-depicted alternative world. There are surprises in the plot that promise interesting things in the future. Recommended.
