The Awakening

Title; The Awakening
Author; Kelley Armstrong
Page count; 357
Why I read it; Second in a series
Grade C+

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.

My Review;
This book was better than the first book. It still bugs me that no questions were answered or mysteries were really solved, there were just more questions the be answered. Kelly Armstrong has a lot to resolve and a lot of questions to answer in her last book, it makes me worried that the third book will be rushed and still at the end of the book that all of the mysteries of the book won't be answered but I could be wrong. I like Derek more and more, Simon seems like a wussy little boy to me. Chloe the main character is just ok there are things I like about her but a lot of things that bug me too. Tori is just crazy and has no morals or compassion at all and the books would be better without her. I think that Derek and Chloe have a "thing" for each other even though Simon obviously likes Chloe and I don't think Cloe's aunt is dead. I hope it doesn't turn into a love triangle book where Chloe can't decide who she likes better between Derek and Simon I swear that will make me hate this whole series. I am going to read the next book because these books are interesting enough but overall I am underwhelmed.
