O has a “thing” for fire–Chloe begins to realize that there is something that binds them all together and it isn’t your usual “problem kid” behaviour And together they discover that Lyle House is not your usual group home eitherThe AwakeningThe Darkest Powers Trilogy Book IIBook II in the Darkest Powers trilogy takes us deeper into a world where the supernatural intrudes on the everyday with riveting effectIf 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 group of people who call themselves The Edison Group What does that mean? For starters I’m a teenage necromancer whose power This series is set in the same world as Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series however that doesn't become extremely apparent until around the second and third books I read the first book and really wondered if it would be any good However the fact that I sat around in bed and read the whole book non stop until I was finished says uite a lot This series is nothing like I've ever seen Chloe is a 15 year old girl who just wants a normal life though everything out of the ordinary ends up happening to her She is taken to Lyle house where she meets a group of people who are all thought to be mentally unstable as she too thinks she is and throughout The Summoning she begins to learn about the brothers who are not actually blood related Derek and Simon and about herself and the fact that she indeed sees ghosts can talk to them and even As Chloe discovers along with Derek and Simon as well as the other housemates Rae Liz and the hateful Tori some very bloody secrets are unraveled about Lyle House and it meant one thing They must run I've said it before and I will say it again Kelley Armstrong does a fantastic job with weaving a storyline so concrete and absolute with a world full of mysteries and yet with very certain boundaries that the world in her books become reality to the reader It's not a story with untouchable perfect characters and supernatural races and beings who are indestructible On the contrary there are limits and conseuences that are very human to each of the races as well as the characters And not only is the world realistic but the story and lead up to the realizations in the books are slow and steady and so well hinted that the books just come together perfectly Kelley Armstrong has yet to fail me in making a story that isn't realistic and down to earth and not mention romantic The build up of the romantic plot is just as subtly and well done as is the action almost as though the characters are guiding themselves through an adventure and not a story being told The characters are imperfect and human to the very raw emotion and the relationships and interactions between them amaze me Though the sex and adult content are toned down many notches as well as the change in writing style compared to her adult series there is plenty of humour and swearing to go around Along with suspenseful action daring adventure and the sutble build up of romance this trilogy is by far the diverse urban fantasy supernatural series I've ever read Loved it

Anyway another uick and satisfying listen from ArmstrongTHE RECKONING 5 StarsChloe and co received some much needed coaching from Andrew’s team however that uickly backfired when the adults realized that their charges trump them by leaps and bounds in the power department I really hated Margaret her insolence and insistence on pushing Saunders to crank up the juice resulted in a brilliant oh shit moment that served as her just deserts The author tied up the bulk of this series’ lose ends with finesse and I knew from the get go that DARKEST POWERS was set in the WOTO universe but in this installment that was finally confirmed with references to the various cabals and how the story was linked to Savannah Adam’s short in Kelley Armstrong’s OTHERWORLD NIGHTS anthology I very much liked how the romance concluded and some interesting new characters were introduced towards the end that have left me scrambling to place them—the DARKNESS RISING trilogy perhaps?NARRATIONCassandra Morris’ narration was appropriate for these audiobooks her voice fit that of the fifteen year old MC’s and she incorporated Chloe’s speech impediment into the dialogue admirably However as the story progressed and the heroine evolved the child like tone would have benefited from a slight adjustment I had zero issues with listening to these installments one after the other because the performance was homogeneous and the character voices didn’t deviate The pacing did Armstrong’s writing style proud and the built in creep factor that comes with seeing ghosts was always present I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase another Young Adult title that featured Morris as the narrator
