*REVIEW* The Reckoning


My name is Chloe Saunders. I'm fifteen, and I would love to be normal.

But normal is one thing I'm not.

For one thing, I'm having these feelings for a certain antisocial werewolf and his sweet-tempered brother—who just happens to be a sorcerer—but, between you and me, I'm leaning toward the werewolf.

Not normal.

My friends and I are also on the run from an evil corporation that wants to get rid of us—permanently.

Definitely not normal.

And finally, I'm a genetically altered necro-mancer who can raise the dead, rotting corpses and all, without even trying.

As far away from normal as it gets.

The Reckoning is the riveting conclusion of The Darkest Powers Trilogy by Kelley Armstrong. I picked up this book and could NOT put it down! Kelley's writing was as amazing as usual and the story picked up right where it left us off, following along as Chloe and the rest of the gang navigate the dark and dangerous waters of the supernatural world they've now become a part of.

This story, like the two proceeding it, is fast-paced, packed with action, intrigue, and twists and turns that leave you wondering who, if anyone, can be trusted. This is truly an exciting read that will have you flipping the pages as quickly as possible, dying to see what happens next.

For those of you who need tightly wrapped up storylines, you're bound to be slightly disappointed with how this trilogy ends. While we see the resolution of the immediate danger to Chloe, Simon, Derek and Tori, a lot remains open. The good news? Chloe makes a choice between Simon and Derek, a choice that I think is going to make a LOT of fans very happy. The better news? Kelley Armstrong is currently writing a new trilogy based in the same world, though with different characters. But I wouldn't be surprised if we see Chloe, Derek, Simon and the rest again.

I highly recommend this book. The writing and story is immensely engaging, the characters are relatable, and we get to see a young heroine as she matures and grows. Throw in danger around every corner, and touching romance, and you've got the makings of an amazing thing. Happy Reading! *XOXO*
