Book Review- The Awakening

I stayed up late last night to finish reading The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong.


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.

Another great book by Kelley Armstrong!  This book was just as intriguing as the first one!  I felt that we got to know a lot of the characters like Simon and Derek and Tori better.  We got to know more about their pasts, who they are, and what their superpowers are.  And I still really like Derek.  I think there is something strangley endearing about him.

The ending of this book is another cliffhanger.  I can't wait until The Reckoning comes out in April to find out what happens next!

I gave this book a rating of 4/5.

  1. I'm so glad to see that you liked it, I enjoyed both The Summoning and The Awakening. I thought the latter one was a tiny bit better than the first.

  2. Awesome to see you loved the Awakening! I definitely liked this one much more!
