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.

This book began a bit slower than the first and it took me a while to get into it. Once it got started though it was as good as the first. Chloe and the others are now on the run and looking for answers. Will they find anywhere that they will truly be safe? Looking forward to book 3.

I couldn't wait to get a hold of this book as I absolutely loved the first one in the series, The Summoning. This one was still good, but the pace was slower and it didn't feel like all that much happened. I think after loving the first book so much, I was expecting a bit more. Saying that I still finished the trilogy and I did love Derek's character.

By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Jun. 2009
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 series is one of those books you can reread over and over again and it never get a boring.
I love the characters and the plot but also love how it can be linked to Armstrong's other books, I.e the cables.
I would recommended yo anyone looking for a good read and an escape into a fantasy world where all the supernatural we love are real.

as usual the story telling is on the highest degree if I have one gripe it is that the books are in trilogy form but the individual books have no ending just a continuation of the tory from one book to the next

Another excellent fantasy story that, whilst targeting young adults and teenagers, is suitable for a much broader audience. These books make for a simple read for adults but they are really enjoyable and allow for the reader to escape their ordinary life and enter a magical existence.
