Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
As a huge fan of Kelley's work any book that lands with her name on automatically moves its way up the reading pile to give me some pure reading pleasure. Yet with three series on the go, and with a punishing publishing schedule you do wonder if quality is being sacrificed for quantity.

All these questions and more (mainly to do with the cliff-hanger from the original tale in the Darkest Powers series) were bubbling as I began the opening chapter to quickly find I was sucked straight back into this YA series through the eyes of the protagonista. It's a definite must buy for fans of Kelley and a great way to have an adult author bridge the gap between children's books to Young Adult with this addictive telling. Exciting, emotional and above all a story to thrill you long after the final page is turned as you sit to imagine what will happen to the characters next. A must own.

This book was much better than The Summoning (Darkest Powers).

All the way through this book I am thinking "CHLOE AND DEREK WILL YOU PLEASE JUST GET TOGETHER ALREADY." If you don't mind some minor spoilers then read on, but if you do mind, click on the link for the summoning because this series is BRILL!!

After escaping from the Edison Group, Chloe and her friends are now on the run and a each chapter goes along it becomes apparant that Simon AND Derek have a crush on Chloe.

What is the poltergeist asking Chloe to do...

What happened to Chloe's aunt...

Will Chloe turn into a werewolf...

The Awakening starts of where The Summoning ended. The kids are on the run from the people that were suppose to be looking after them. Only its not just the Edison Group any more, after learning that Chloe's aunt and Tori's mum knew what was going on the kids can't trust any one. Sleeping rough in alleyways and struggling to keep going they make their way to a friend of Simon/Dereks dad.

Chloe and Derek get separated from the bunch on their travels, when Darek thinks he's about to change (oh yeah, he's a werewolf. Did I forget to mention that?) and the grow closer as they attempt to make it back to the others. They both care for each other, and there is obviously some sort of strange feelings but it always feels like Derek is trying to keep Chloe at an arms length and the might have something to do with the fact that Simon likes her.

This book is mainly centered around the kids, what their abilities are (I'll get to that) and watching each one come more into their own and grow, after all they are just a bunch of kids. Yes they have supernatural powers, but they are still kids trying to survive after finding out their how life (or the majority of it) was nothing more than a lie. You have Chloe, the necromancer who is really struggling with her powers in this book, bringing back more than just the soul she requires, but she has no one to help her or guide her. Simon, a sorcerer who's only real tricks are levitation and mist projection.
Tori who is a witch and whose powers seem to be sparked mainly by anger, leaving her completely without control too. And Derek. Derek is a werewolf, and according to him shouldn't be going through the change right now. So you can understand why he was alarmed at the end of The Summoning.

This books was a lot better than first. I felt like you got to see sides to the characters you might not have witnessed in the last book. It was very well written and enjoyable.

Format: Paperback
I was so excited I received this book for Christmas, seeing as I loved The Summoning so much. The Summoning was so exciting, with great characters and such a cool plot, so I was chuffed to have received this book. I've now read it, and I'm feeling a little disappointed.

Don't get me wrong, the book itself wasn't bad; the characters are just as awesome as they were before, the writing as just as good, there's no fault there. I think my problem is with the plot. I haven't read the third book in the series, The Reckoning, yet, obviously, but it felt to me like Kelley knew how the series was going to end, but couldn't just start The Reckoning after The Summoning, so needed The Awakening as filler to bridge the gap. Not an awful lot happens for a book of it's length. Before I knew it, I was over half way through, and still waiting for something important to the actual plot line from The Summoning.

I shall continue for now with some positives, because there were some really good bits! I love the way Kelley writes; Chloe's voice, thoughts and fears are just so fascinating, you don't want to put the book down. I want to get to know Chloe, and the others, better because their lives and what they're going through is just so clever. Chloe learns a little more about her necromancy ability in this book, and it's kind of freaky just how far she can go. Tori has to face some harsh truths, and I can't help but feel sorry for her, even when she is being a cow. Derek is so awesome, I swear; he's strong, he's brave, he's self-sacrificing, he's just brilliant! Simon is lovely, but he annoys me sometimes with just how nice he is. I know he likes Chloe, but he shouldn't be so happy-cheery all the time, it's grating.
