The Awakening - Darkest Powers, Bk 2
Author: Kelley Armstrong
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...  more »

Not too long ago, Chloe Saunders was an ordinary teenage girl with dreams of making movies when she got older.

Today she is a necromancer who has no idea how to control her powers or even what all of her powers are.

In book one of the DARKEST POWERS series, THE SUMMONING, Chloe and several of her friends escaped from the group home they had been living in. Now, Chloe and Rae are recaptured by the Edison Group, a shady organization that has genetically altered them to try and make use of the powers that many of them were born with.

I found THE AWAKENING to be well-written, descriptive, and thoroughly engaging. This book had soul-searching, action, and even a little teen angst - although it only had a little to do with being a teen and a lot to do with being a supernatural with very little control over their lives or their powers.

I would definitely recommend this book to others. Kelley Armstrong already has two popular adult series under her belt, and this is well on its way to being her third, and hopefully only the first for teens! I hope to see much more from her in the future.

I like the storyline in the first Darkest Powers book but I didn't really like this book. Nothing really happened in the book. I realize it is a series but it was boring, with no real plot. It was like this books was nothing more than fluff to get to the next book.

I really LOVE this series so far! Kelley Armstrong is one of my favorite authors and I love her adult series. I'm glad she stuck with the "otherworld" theme in these books. And I think she always does a great job writing her characters. I love Chloe and Simon but Derek is by far my favorite. I mean who doesn't love the tall, dark, and maybe not so handsome right now, brooding werewolf? I can't wait till May when The Reckoning comes out but at the same time I almost hate for the journey to end! Great books!

It' a pretty cool idea -- a secret cabal devoted to genetically engineering and controlling supernatural creatures like witches and werewolves.

It's a solid novel that lags somewhat in the middle (when it seems like not much is happening beyond bickering). In this installment, there's no sense of plot other than running from the Edison Group, but it has plenty of suspense, a dash of necromantic horror, and likable characters with realistic flaws and self-doubts.

Definitely a good read, whether for teen or adult fans of werewolves, witches and zombies.

Despite these misgivings, I'm looking forward to the conclusion of the trilogy this spring with The Reckoning (Darkest Powers, Book 3).
