'[The Awakening] hits the ground running, leaving readers tripping, stumbling and racing to keep up.... Will exhilarate even readers new to the series.' - Kirkus, starred review

'Armstrong has some fun toying with supernatural teen thriller conventions, and the taut pacing should please fans of the exploding genre.' - Booklist

Chloe Saunders used to be a normal teenage girl - or so she thought. Then she learned the shocking truth - she is a walking science experiment. Genetically altered at birth by a sinister group of scientists known as the Edison Group, Chloe is an aberration - a powerful necromancer who can see ghosts and even raise the dead, often with terrifying consequences. Even worse, her growing powers have made her a threat to the surviving members of the Edison Group, who have decided it's time to end their experiment - permanently . . .

Now Chloe is running for her life with three other supernatural teenagers - a charming sorcerer, a troubled werewolf and a temperamental young witch. Together they have a chance for freedom - but can Chloe trust her new friends?

The second book in the stunning Darkest Powers trilogy, The Awakening is a powerful and gripping story from bestselling author Kelley Armstrong.
