Format: Paperback
Chloe, Derek, Simon and Tori have escaped the catches of the Edison Group with the help of Andrew. A former employee of the Edison Group, and a friend of the boys' dad, he and a small group of other ex-employees want to stop the experiments the EG are preforming and feel the kids may just have the information they need to do so. But Chloe and her friends are cautious. They've been through a lot, escaped and been caught repeatedly, and betrayed by those they trusted completely already, is Andrews offer of help too good to be true? And even if it is, do they have a choice about staying with him?

I liked the previous two books in this trilogy, but I didn't love them. I always felt like they were lacking something. But this one I liked a lot more. It felt smoother, like the series really hit it's stride. It's well paced with a fair bit of action and some good twists and turns. A couple things along the way I really didn't see coming.

The love triangle between Chloe and the brothers, Derek and Simon, played out really well and I love how it worked out. Chloe grew up a lot through this book and it really showed. Not to mention she finally learned to stand up for herself. Aside from Chloe, I felt Derek and Tori grew a fair bit through this final book as well making them that bit more 'real' to me. Simon is pretty much the same, but his character serves his purpose just fine, without being forgotten.

Aside from the romantic entanglements, the plot is not so cleanly wrapped up. The biggest things are dealt with, but not everything. Why? Because while this is a trilogy, it's the first part of a series. The second trilogy is titled 'Darkness Rising' and the first book, 'The Gathering' is due out in about a year (I think).

Greetings,
I was hoping the year would start better reading wise, last year was the "Ok Year", so I wanted to end 2013, and start this one in a better mood.
Witches/Magic was my option, and since I dedicated my Christmas haul mostly to fantasy and /magical books, I really was expecting this series and my experience with Kelley Armstrong to be awesome, since she's quite known within Supernatural fiction genre.
This series, was my second read of hers, I read Bitten before, and although I find her writing style quite casual and very easy to read, this was quite disappointing. This is a highly rated series , especially for a young adult, so I was expecting a lot more than what I found. Don't get me wrong , this was for certainly a page turner, specially this last book, I read it in a matter of hours, but I kept drifting off of the history and imagining what this could have been.
The romance didn't irritate me , nor appeal me, most of the time I actually didn't remember she was in fact that young , what was good , and overall I must say that the characters were well drawn and her abilities and the way they were described very well done and that's why this is so frustrating , it's because the setting was strong enough to be interesting and then it failed to be delivered.
The narration drags, so many running away, escapes and anxiety, it feels that there is just to much building-up/action to a very weak climax. In the end we are left with too many questions to be answered and it feels tiresome.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 May 2010
Format: Paperback
The previous book of the Darkest Powers trilogy had the little gang of supernatural teens finally finding sanctuary.

Well, how boring would it be if that sanctuary were all they thought it would be? So of course, "The Reckoning" throws the teen protagonists into a tangle of ghosts, lycanthropy, deceptions and long-forgotten crimes, as well as a long-awaited clash with the Edison Group. Kelley Armstrong does a solid job wrapping up the main story, though the last quarter of the book feels REALLY rushed.

Chloe and her friends have finally found the house where a bunch of the Edison Group's enemies are living. But it soon becomes obvious that they aren't exactly welcome -- the adults are wary of the various "freak" powers that the teens have, and they's especially dismissive of "the werewolf boy." To make matters worse, Chloe is being stalked by a half-demon ghost, and a snooty necromancer's attempt to tutor her at a local graveyard almost ends in disaster.

It's only a matter of time until the kids are imprisoned again, this time by their new "hosts" -- and when a pair of werewolf thugs show up to kill Derek on the night he Changes, Chloe knows that she's not just being phobic. Now she and her friends must figure out how to escape their new "home" alive, and somehow free the friends'n'relatives still being held captive by the Edison Group.

Compared to the last couple Darkest Powers novels, "The Reckoning" is less thrilleresque and more suspenseful -- Armstrong keeps you guessing about who's an ally and who's an enemy, who's lying and who's not. Things only speed up in the last quarter of the book... and unfortunately Armstrong rushes through the action-packed part of the story. She needed at least another hundred pages to do that ending justice.
