Wrighty's Reads

I've always loved to read and enjoy a wide variety of genres. My favorites tend to be humor, mysteries, thrillers, chick lit, fantasy, paranormal, dystopian, young adult, children's books and most combinations of those previously mentioned.

The Awakening (Darkest Powers Series #2)

The Awakening - Kelley Armstrong Chloe and three of her friends are on the run after escaping from an organization called the Edison Group who is responsible for doing genetic alterations. They know it's affected their lives and made them unique. While it's a relief to Chloe to realize that she isn't crazy but instead has supernatural powers. She has yet to realize all of her capabilities but knows they must have the potential to be powerful. And that makes all of them very valuable to their pursuers so they have no intention of being caught. They need to find someone to help because their very lives are at stake.This book moved along just as fast as the first one and it started right where the story left off. The teens now have an idea of where they came from and how they were brought together. Now they are piecing together what it means to their futures, if they even have one. For many of them their whole life has been a lie.I really like the covers, so simple but very appropriate. And the differences in the necklace are all part of the story but not much has been revealed yet. That is an important element from Chloe's past but how much of a role does it play?I'm really looking forward to the final book The Reckoning to be released 5/10/10. I did get to read the first three chapters on the website and again it picks up right where the last book left off. What a tease! I want to know the rest of the story!
