The Awakening

The Awakening
Kelley Armstrong
$17.99 U.S. (Hardcover)
Synopsis by Barnes and Noble:
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.
My Thoughts:
I think this book picks up perfectly where the other left off. I was again entertained by this book as well as compelled to read it in the span of anout 7 hours. Again this book only spans about a week, but enough action takes place to last the normal individual close to a month. I enjoyed this more than The Summoning becaise the relationships of he characters began to grow and the came to rely on eachother more. Chloe and her friends are on the run from The Edison Group in search of Simon and Derek's dad.ALong with the biys and Tori, Chloe is able to still find trouble. The Awakening allows the reader to step out of their life and see what truly would happen if one day they woke up with powers. This book is a great follow up to The Summoning and made me want more.
Obviously anyone who read The Summoning will need to read this.
Grade: A
Extras: There is no release date for the third, and if I am correct final, Dasrkest Power book, it is entitled The Reckoning so keep your eyes open.
Age: 13 and up
