The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong

No. of pages: 357
Rating: 10/10
Series: Darkest Powers (Book 2)

Synopsis: 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 group of people who call themselves 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.

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 gain our freedom back before The Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.

Review: Continuing from where The Summoning left off, Chloe is trying to escape from The Edison Group. With people who are determined to hunt them down inching ever closer, and their strengthening powers to deal with, they all have a lot of trouble breathing down their necks...

Being that this was following on from the already established story of The Summoning meant that The Awakening was action packed from page one, which made it all that much more gripping. It was great to see how much Chloe grows up in this book, and you really see the development from scared little girl, to a young woman who is ready to face things she never thought imaginable. I'm still totally in love with Chloe and Derek, and so hope they get together in the final book! I really like the direction that the story is going in, and I love that it's just so easy to sink into and completely lose yourself in the story. As if you can't tell, I'm enjoying the series immensely and can't wait to see how it all ends!
