Mini-Review: The Awakening

The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong
Darkest Powers Trilogy #2
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal
Pages: 268 (ereader)
Source: eLibrary
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 . . . I was genetically altered by a sinister organization called the Edison Group.

My Rating:
Mini-Review: The Awakening
Quick Thoughts: Transitioning.  Sinister.  Endearing
While this story seemed to focus on transitioning to the next phase of the trilogy, I found myself engrossed in the characters and their predicament.  This story picks up right where the first book ends, which means you have to read the books in order, and continues to follow the four teens, Chloe, the brothers, Derek & Simon, and Tori.  I love that I got to see more of Derek but  found Simon to be a mere distraction (Okay I'm biased).  Instead of an ongoing story, I wish each book had its own discernible plot and problem.  The entire trilogy could have been one long book as each book concerns a series of events that will, I'm sure, have a resolution in the third book.  One scene literally gave me nightmares because it creeped me out to the extrme.  Just imagining the situation gave me chills.  The trilogy isn't scary but Ms. Armstrong is quite adept at vivid descriptions
