    The second book in the Darkest Powers series is just as engaging as the first creepy action and a Derek I am in love with this boy I wanna go in the book and drop kick Chloe so she can see what she is missing I will say they have a lot of scenes alone together and they make me very happyFor all y’all who don’t know Chloe is a new discovered necromancer able to awaken the dead first she thought she was schizo but it was discovered that the home she was sent to after experiencing seeing a ghost were finding ways to harvest her powers Well after breaking loose Chloe and her entourage are now on the run We have Tori the sarcastic rich girl Simon the ever so sweet gentleman Derek the leader and authority figure of the group and of course sweet and naïve ChloeIts interesting to see these very young people go out and fend for themselves They no longer can call parents for help because they might be placed in danger some are the bad guys and others have already gone missing Everyday is a journey of survival and new realities Plus this foursome bring the laughs and good timesKelley Armstrong is able to grab the reader and never let go the relationships are real and very sweet I am blown away by how a guy described as being ugly can come off as the sexiest being What this book lacks is romance but it is there if you manage to read between the lines Overall an action packed book with creepy dead things and just a pure thrilling ridePeeved They talk about a necklace and I have yet to see the significance all I know is the color has changed

    I don't know how I feel about this one I mean the kids are out there trying to get way from the evil people that are trying to hurt them And we find out some reasons as to why they are the kind of supernaturals that they are but I was just sort of meh I will say that I loved to get time with Chloe and Derek I really love Derek's character And we learn about the families of the kids There is also action with the supernatural abilities of some of the adults and kids but I still couldn't get into it all the way Sometimes I wonder if it's the mood I'm in or if I really did just like the book and not love it to death One will never know unless of course you read it again Chloe Rae and Tori are in cells at The Edison Group after they tried to escape with Derek and Simon in the first book A bunch of stuff happens and Tori and Chloe get away and meet up with the boys Then stuff happens and it's a little cray I also really love the ghost Liz in the book too I hope we get to find out something good for her in the next book I did enjoy the book I'm just mad that I didn't love it to death but we can love them all that way right?

    As seen on The ReadventurerThe second book in Darkest Powers trilogy starts where the first one left off Chloe is at the research institute and contemplating escape What follows is pretty much Chloe's and her friends' journey to get to the person who might be able to help them find Derek's and Simon's father which is I suppose is what this trilogy is about but I am not sure at this pointThe first book in the trilogy was undoubtedly drawn out and artificially extended but this second book sure beats that While The Summoning had at least some semblance of a story specifically the discovery of the true nature of Lyle House The Awakening is truly 400 pages of filler Almost nothing is added to the main story arc only 3 pages describing the purpose of the experiments on supernaturals and the idea that Derek's and Simon's father can be found with the help of his friend Andrew The rest of the book is pretty much limited to hiding in various warehouses 150 pages hiding in an abandoned house 50 pages riding a bus to Andrew's house 150 pages and finally meeting Andrew 10 pages The Awakening truly has no climax of any sort It reads as a boring series of events that serve no purpose but to develop the characters which is fine when not used so shamelessly to fill pages and pages at the expense of the real plot There are some nice DerekChloe moments and only these moments save the book from being a complete waste of time If I had hopes that the trilogy would pick up after a rather slow first book I don't have them any The second book proved to be as boring of a read as the first one and even worse This is a pity because Armstrong knows how to write an engaging and tightly plotted book This Darkest Powers trilogy however is a shameless attempt to extend 250 pages of story into 3 books 400 pages each I am not sure if I will ever get back to this series I expect I will not be able to remember much about it even a month later

    ⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱At least it's better than the first⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱ BEWARE FOR SPOILERS FOR THE SERIES This whole review can probably contain spoilers for the entire series This review is mostly for me to remember the details Re read 04052018 I decided to continue with the re read with this series I'm not overly fond with it never have been but the story plot has some real potential I just wished the characters where older 15 and 16 is so young and blushing because someone holds your hand it's too immature for my taste This book should've been a NA I'm just saying Overall it's better than the first book that's for sure Something happened all the time and at least Derek's treatment was better in this one Derek is without doubt my favorite character in this series and I don't like my favorite character being treated wrong Good thing Chloe was getting better with treating my boy better She don't deserve him She's so blind Tori waited until he was gone then shuddered “Okay Derek always weirded me out but that wolf man stuff is seriously creepy Suits him I suppose A creepy power for a creepy guy”“I thought he looked better”She stared at me“What? He does Probably because he’s starting his wolf changes and he’s not stressed out about being in Lyle House That must help”“You know what would really help? Shampoo Deodorant—”I raised my hand to cut her off “He smelled fine so don’t start that I’m sure he’s wearing deodorant and—for once—it’s working As for showers they’re a little hard to come by on the street and we won’t look much better soon”“Do you think he doesn’t know what you’re saying? News flash—he’s not stupid”Derek was all too aware of the impression he made At Lyle House he’d showered twice a day and it still hadn’t fixed the puberty smackdown The charactersview spoiler↦ Chloe Saunders 15 diagnosis; schizophrenic Can see ghosts; a necromancer Main character↦ Simon Bae 15 a sorcerer; can cast spells such as levitation and mist projection↦ Derek Souza 16 diagnosis antisocial personality disorder a werewolf and foster brother to Simon↦ Victoria ‘Tori’ Enright 15 diagnosis mentally disturbed; bipolar view spoilera witch sorcerer hybrid hide spoiler

    Still loving my decision to reread this series Yes it's a little juvenile in it's scope but it holds such nostalgia value to me that I can't help but still love itAs far as middle books go this one is solid The stakes get higher and background is revealed about our main characters and even the Edison Group itself And of course there's no solid ending just mystery that ensures you will read the final bookI really feel like the characters are finally coming into their own as well They are learning to trust themselves and each other but stay wary of outsiders I liked reading about them discovering about their powers Tori was always the shock here While you still don't like her you understand her and why she is the way that she is I ultimately believe that she wants friends and she wants to be liked but doesn't know how to go about making that happen She just keeps putting up shields and pushing people away But with a mother like hers can you blame her?But it's mostly our main three who run this show Chloe Derek and Simon I love their relationship with each other but you just know problems are about to come because brothers can't like the same girl and it end happy And now on to book 3Original review from 2011 view spoilerThis was my second time reading this book but I wanted to reread it before I reviewed it in case my memory was tweaked It wasn't I love this series The characters are so rich and so distinctive that you can't help but fall in love with them and pray that they get out of this mess Chloe I like that the author stays true to her youth Chloe is very solid through all the books changing as her life changes at a natural pace Times I want to smack her because of how naive she is but then I remember her age and how confused she must be with everything going on I do believe that she honestly does like Simon but I know that her heart is with Derek even if she doesn't realize this yet Derek I LOVE DEREK I don't understand how you could not His protectiveness not only over Chloe but his brother as well is so endearing He knows what people think of him and he pretends that he doesn't care but he does And he's so obviously in love with Chloe but torn at the same time because of Simon's attraction for her He's extremely loyal and it's not his fault he's a werewolf Simon For some reason I can never picture him the way the author describes him I have my own picture in my head it's weird lol But I do like Simon And in any other scenario he would be perfect with Chloe just not here when there's Derek Tori You gotta love to hate her And in the beginning I did hate her Tori's roll in this group is the brat I love how she pretty much tells it like it is regardless of what people think She pretends to hate everyone around her but deep down I think that she's happy with this group happy to belong somewhere when it's so obvious that her parents don't want her around since her mother only uses her as a science experiment Great second book in this series Love it hide spoiler

    The Awakening is even enticing and action packed than its preuel While the setting shifts it is no less menacing as Chloe and the gang face a grim and tretcherous life on the streets Tension is heightened by the added appeal of a perfectly sinister and powerful enemy and the suspense of unknown supernatural powers Armstrong's teen characters are smart and resourceful and each obstacle thrown their way reuires them to use every bit of caution wits and intelligence they possess Armstrong focuses a little on the technical aspects of the teens' powers and abilities especially as Derek and Chloe explore their capabilities and restraints Their difficulties and the tension that they face help them grow as characters and make them appealing My crush on Derek has increased ten fold The Awakening is a dark gripping and highly suspenseful read will have readers staying up to all hours of the night and leave them desperate for the next installment

    Alas this is where Chloe Saunders and I must part ways As with the first book I just couldn't stop myself from wanting to call it uits after about half of the book There's just something about the storyline and this little necromancer that doesn't seem to captivate me despite how much I love a great paranorm Now I'm actually apologizing upfront for my rant that is about to unfold but it's only because my fellow group of trusted readers loved this book and I couldn't I just couldn't I tried but it didn't happen whimpers is shame There's uite a bit that fuels my annoyance with The Awakening and let me just start with demi demons??? Reeeaaalllllyyyy??? Okay so I understand the whole concept of a demi gods when a god procreates with a human and vio la You get a demi god Okay that I can handle and actually it's rather fascinating and worthy of my time and attention But get this according to Armstrong you get a demi demon by mutating the genetic make up of a demon and as a result you get a human with less subtle demon powers and the added benefit of an attitude problem and anger management issues Wait I guess there is no benefit Either way it's laughable at bestOkay so these mutations are conducted by The Edison Company Where do they get the name you ask? Again get this this group of twisted scientists are named after Thomas Edison who not only invented some sound devices such as the phonograph motion picture camera and the crafty little light bulb but what I bet you didn't know is that he attempted to invent a device intended to contact the dead Okay I ask did I read that right?^^ I'm sure I did but just humor me for a bit I think our history books are in need of a revision So this worthy set of scientists run their experiments and when the study goes array they dispose of the subjects Not so much of a problem if they were lab rats or guinea pigs Well for animal humane societies it might be an issue and nothing against rats or guineas but unfortunately their subjects are TEENAGERS So yes they dispose of teenagers when their experiments fail That's eff'ed up to say the leastNow on to the characters There is not a one that I liked Well maybe the ghost Liz was cool but all the other characters were worthy of a head shake IMHO Chloe is not a very bright girl and many of her attempts to either escape manipulatelie to the adults fight off batty ghouls dead people or wolves are just simply too drawn out or end up in failure And she really needs to learn how to hold onto a knife It's actually rather irritating A smarter maybe conniving Chloe would have been fun to read about Rae?? Ugh Tory?? Double up UghUgh Yes I still have that song in my head Simon and Derek ohhhh Simon and Derek What's to like about these two characters? One suffers from a puberty smack down and a bad case of body odor Now I understand Derek can't help his acne and BO but if Armstrong was going to emphasize his insignificant flaws notice my emphasis on insignificant give him some character elements worthy of applause But no you have Simon that is simply his brother's shadow and Derek who's either brooding all the time or losing his temper Oh that's right his genetic makeup was altered so he can't help being in a constant state of anger For most of the book they spend hiding out in warehouses catching buses eating junk food and fighting off bats ghouls and wolves Sounds like a fun adventure right? But nope I lost interest early on and never really found myself drawn back into the story I guess this is just the rare occasion where the paranorm element wasn't enough to take me on a fictional adventure Sorry but that's just where it stood Review Edit I cleared Simon up of his acne that never existed

    I remember finishing the The Summoning the preuel to The Awakening last summer and thinking I doubt Kelley will be able to top this Though apparently she can as she has proven it with The Awakening In The Awakening action and intense drama occurs As well as major character development Since Tori Chloe Derek and Simon's powers began to involve steadily in the book Also there was information told and found out about the Edison Group and werewolves which was fascinating in any case Derek and Chloe? Yep their relationship defiantly grew throughout The Awakening and made it one of my favorite parts I swear I will scream if they don't get together by the end of this series Since they are so cute with their bickering and how they always protect each other Overall The Awakening will have any fan of the Darkest Powers Trilogy begging for a seuel by the end I look forward to reading the next book tremendously I wish Spring 2010 would come faster Grade A

    Probably not uite 4 stars but this is just one of those series where I want to read all three novels before I really give a solid opinion but so far I like where it seems to be headed The pacing could be better meaning I wouldn't complain if things moved along somewhat and the relationships could be clearer but overall it's a pleasant experience and I'm eager to read the final book
