Darkest Powers #3: The Reckoning (2010)

The Reckoning

Chloe with her gang formed by a werewolf, a sorcerer, a witch, and herself, a necromancer, finally arrived at a safe house owned by Andrew, a friend of Simon and Derek's father. or so they thought. being an ex-employee of the Edison Group, the group that experimented on genetically modified children, Andrew had more thoughts than what he was sharing. before long, a pack was sent to retrieve Derek, the werewolf. which happened to be the same bunch of werewolves that taunted them during their journey in The Awakening (2009). the people that they thought to entrust their future with turned out to be as dangerous as those they met back in the Edison Group. again, they had to rely on themselves in life threatening situations, to save themselves from the adults.

Chloe's growth was so tremendously impressive that she had me falling for her throughout the series. for being neither overly pretty, or exceptionally smart, she made a perfect heroin! she stumbled her way through being a necromancer, struggled with ways to make summoning the dead more in control than they were over her. like Derek, they were both imperfect, yet so perfectly together! i love the way that the book doesn't circled or get too sidetracked with romance. despite having the series' focus on surviving the moment, their romance bloomed and went the prefect direction that i absolutely adored. the Darkest Powers (2008-2010) trilogy was one of the most engaging series i had read. however, the story didn't exactly ended like expected. it was left open-ended, hopefully meaning there will be more adventures of theirs to read about!
