THE RECKONING takes up right where THE AWAKENING left off.
Derek, Simon, Chloe, and Tori are temporarily safe from the Edison group. They are with Andrew, who is a friend of Simon and Derek's dad, the man they were told to go to if they were ever in any trouble. They are just starting to settle in, and Derek is so very close to changing for the first time that just about anything could set him off. After being under so much stress, is it any wonder when the teens start to second guess each other?
The relationships between the four continues to develop. Chloe finds herself developing feelings for one of the boys. More secrets continue to crop up as they learn about the experiments that the Edison group conducted. Alliances are tested and what they thought they knew no longer seems true. Do they continue to trust others, or do they begin to trust in each other to see it through to the end?
This was a very exciting conclusion to the DARKEST POWERS trilogy, and fans of Kelley Armstrong won't be disappointed. With a fast-paced and elaborate plot, I was kept glued to the edge of my seat until the very end. Her characters are not the candy-coated teens that many might expect in a young adult book, but young people with wants who are willing to fight to get what they need.
With amazing action, suspense, and wonderful characters, I was sorry that this is the end of the series. Ms. Armstrong has such strong writing skills that it makes her books a definite auto-buy for me.
