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. I’m a living science experiment — not only can I see ghosts, but I was genetically altered by a sinister organization call 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 chaming 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.
This book picks up right where The Summoning left off. If you haven't read the first book you should really do that before jumping into The Awakening.
Again this is a 13+ book...maybe a little on the scary side if you have a young that is afraid of ghosts and raising the dead. This book has very minor language use, just in two or three places (for those of you that are concerned about that kind of thing).
This is not the first time that I have read this series, like the Twilight saga I have read the Darkest Powers series several times and loved it every time. The characters are written with the same flaws, attitudes, and emotions as your average teen. They are characters that the young reader can relate too. The Awakening has more action than The Summoning and never fails to hold your attention.
