The Reckoning Review

The Reckoning (Darkest Powers, #3)The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong

Chloe Saunders is fifteen and would love to be normal. Unfortunately, Chloe happens to be a genetically engineered necromancer who can raise the dead without even trying. She and her equally gifted (or should that be 'cursed'?) friends are now running for their lives from the evil corporation that created them.

As if that's not enough, Chloe is struggling with her feelings for Simon, a sweet-tempered sorcerer, and his brother Derek, a not so sweet-tempered werewolf. And she has a horrible feeling she's leaning towards the werewolf... Definitely not normal.

 Carrie's Review 5 of 5 Stars

I really loved this series, I was just glad I had all three books before starting the first as the cliff hangers in the first two books would have driven me insane. I'm so glad I got to enjoy the diversities of the characters friendships and relationships and watch them grow not only as people but in there abilities too, you really fall in love with Chloe and Derek and there relationship, I also love that Tori becomes one of the main characters and is quite nice under all that bravado. You also so get a real sense of good verses evil in these books and are always willing the good guys on.

In this final instalment we kick off with Chloe, Tori,Derek and Simon safe with there dad's friend Andrew in a supernatural safe house; or so they think, what follows are more dramatic twists and turns. Who do they trust ? What do they do? Once again do they run or fight with all they have. The safe house itself starts to throw some major twists into the plot with more corpses than Chloe bargains for and will she use them in the fight for freedom? The ending to this book is somewhat on point although there is room for so much more. I hope Kelley either does one more book or at least a spin off maybe lol us greedy readers are always wanting more but that's a sign of a great book.
