Review: The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong

Book two in the Darkest Powers Trilogy

About The Awakening

If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I'm as far away from normal as it gets. A living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I was genetically altered by a sinister organization called the Edison Group. What does that mean? For starters, I'm a teenage necromancer whose powers are out of control; I raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever.

Now I'm running for my life with three of my supernatural friends—a charming sorcerer, a cynical werewolf, and a disgruntled witch—and we have to find someone who can help us before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.

The story continues with more of the same…and I mean that in a very good way.

This story begins where The Summoning ended and we still follows Chloe Saunders as the main character who struggles to find out what is happening, who she is and what she should do.
Chloe meets up with some of her new friends. Together they begin their journey towards safety and to find the answers to all their questions.

I felt like I was flying through this book, it was a very easy book to get through and the plot and characters are still very exciting to read about. You learn more about each character and now when there’re outside Lyle House they run into new problems they have to get through.

I still feels like that in some parts of the book the language is a little to immature for me I know it’s written for teens but sometimes the book just seems to blend some major emotional issues with a language that doesn’t add up all the time.

I really liked this book and it kept me going all the way. I’m waiting very impatiently for the third and last book in the series to become available at the library so I read it and find out what happens.

I give The Awakening 4 out of 5.

Other books in this series:
1# The Summoning
3# The Reckoning
