The Awakening- Kelly Armstrong

My rating: 4/5
Summary: from the back of the book

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. I'm a living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I can raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever. I’m running for my life with three of my supernatural friends and we have to find someone who can help us gain our freedom back before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.


So I am officially in love with this series and am anxiously awaiting the third book The Reckoning! I love the whole paranormal theme of this book dealing with ghosts and such, as I have never read a book where there were people who talked to ghosts.

I was excited to read this and was not disappointed. There is a lot going on with Chloe's new found and explained power of being a necromancer, then we have Derek the werewolf, and Tori and Simon who are Sorcerers. These teenagers are faced with the Edison group who are definitely evil people who experiment and kill "troubled kids" such as themselves. We see a lot of "maybe" and "almost" relationships forming. Chloe who may have feelings for either or both of the brothers, Derek and Simon. Simon and Derek who both definitely maybe or kinda have feelings for Chloe... Then Tori who likes Simon, who doesn't return those feelings.

Overall, this story is a very good read. Once you start you can't stop.

I can't wait to finish this. I borrowed it from the library, and I didn't have the time to finish it since I had other stuff to do. I'm glad you liked it. I'm sure I will too. :)
