Plot: 19/20
Originality: 18/20
Writing: 19/20
Recommendation: 19/20
Overall: 93/100 or A
The Awakening is the second book in Armstrong’s Darkest Powers series. I am giving you a quick spoiler warning.
Chloe Saunders used to think that she was a normal teenage girl. Recently, she found out that she is a walking science experiment. She is a necromancer, and can see ghost and raise the dead. She was sent The Edison Group to get better, when they were the people that started it all. She is now on the run with three of my supernatural friends – a charming sorcerer Simon, a cynical werewolf Derek, and a disgruntled witch Tori. We have to find someone who can help us gain our freedom back before The Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.
The Awakening was just as good as The Summoning, if not it might be even better. The characters were more developed and more interesting, in the book. The plot was amazing. I liked the parts of them being on the run. It was pretty original. The writing was well done. I can wait for more from her. I think that I will have to check out a few of her adult books. I recommend checking out this series. I can't wait till the third book of this series. By the way, I love the cover. It is amazing and so pretty.


  1. I just finnished this one this morning! I also loved it. Cant wait till the third to come out!

  2. I read this a few days ago too. I was so glad it didn't have the same kind of cliffhanger ending the first one had! I think their abilities are really interesting. It's so creepy how she can reanimate the dead without even trying, and in her dreams!

  3. This series sounds SO good! I must read it, fabulous review. :)

    - Wendy.

  4. I haven't read the first book, yet but this series sounds really good! I'm glad you liked it!

  5. For some reason I pick this up in the store and then put it back down. They sounded good, but I wasn't for sure. From you review, they sound like books I will enjoy so I am going to have to read them. Great review.

  6. So excited to read this.
    The synopsis sounds REALLY good.

  7. I love this series and can't wait to read what's gonna happen next.

  8. I really want to start the series because they sound really good.

  9. I loved this series. They are like dark magic. This one is better than the first one I think.

  10. I'm very glad you liked this though I admit I only skimmed your review because I haven't read the first.


  11. I'm happy to find out that the characters are more interesting and more developed because I feel like I really didn't get a chance to connect too well with them in the first book. I can't wait to read this book especially since it got an A.
