Format: Paperback
The Reckoning picks up right where The Awakening left off, with Chloe and her group of genetically modified supernaturals safe from the clutches of the Edison Group at last. Once they get a chance to rest and stop running, the teens finally start learning how to use their powers. But it quickly becomes evident that no one is ready for what the Edison Group's experiments have created. When their safe house suddenly doesn't feel so safe, Chloe and her friends are forced to run again, and this time the stakes are even higher.

The Darkest Powers trilogy does a wonderful job of building on the supernatural world created in Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series without ever leaning on those characters to propel the story. Like the first two books in the series, The Reckoning is an action packed adventure that will keep you guessing as the story unfolds and loyalties are put into question. Never knowing who to trust keeps the reader in the same mindset as the characters, and heightens the suspense as things progress to the high-stakes conclusion. I actually found this series to be scarier than the Women of the Otherworld books, and was often on the edge of my seat as Chloe battled her ghosts and demons.

The character development in The Reckoning is fantastic! As usual, Kelley Armstrong's characters are so layered and authentic that you miss them when they're not around. Chloe, Derek and Tori all really grow and change throughout the course of this novel. Simon's role is reduced quite a bit in The Reckoning, but this makes sense as the other characters powers continue to grow.

Between the action, suspense and great characters, The Reckoning is a gripping adventure set in an amazing supernatural world that meshes seamlessly with our own.

Format: Paperback
The previous book of the Darkest Powers trilogy had the little gang of supernatural teens finally finding sanctuary.

Well, how boring would it be if that sanctuary were all they thought it would be? So of course, "The Reckoning" throws the teen protagonists into a tangle of ghosts, lycanthropy, deceptions and long-forgotten crimes, as well as a long-awaited clash with the Edison Group. Kelley Armstrong does a solid job wrapping up the main story, though the last quarter of the book feels REALLY rushed.

Chloe and her friends have finally found the house where a bunch of the Edison Group's enemies are living. But it soon becomes obvious that they aren't exactly welcome -- the adults are wary of the various "freak" powers that the teens have, and they's especially dismissive of "the werewolf boy." To make matters worse, Chloe is being stalked by a half-demon ghost, and a snooty necromancer's attempt to tutor her at a local graveyard almost ends in disaster.

It's only a matter of time until the kids are imprisoned again, this time by their new "hosts" -- and when a pair of werewolf thugs show up to kill Derek on the night he Changes, Chloe knows that she's not just being phobic. Now she and her friends must figure out how to escape their new "home" alive, and somehow free the friends'n'relatives still being held captive by the Edison Group.

Compared to the last couple Darkest Powers novels, "The Reckoning" is less thrilleresque and more suspenseful -- Armstrong keeps you guessing about who's an ally and who's an enemy, who's lying and who's not. Things only speed up in the last quarter of the book... and unfortunately Armstrong rushes through the action-packed part of the story. She needed at least another hundred pages to do that ending justice.

Format: Paperback
Did the series really have to end? The series just kept getting more and more exciting as the books went on. I love how the relationships between all the characters take time to develop and they aren't just in love or best friend's right from the beginning! Some how Derek is the un-likeable, but likeable guy and even though Simon is the obvious catch maybe there is more to Derek then just being a bully?. The twists and turns always had me guessing, and just when you thought you had it all put together and know what's going to happen next... you DON'T... but I think that is really nothing new with a Kelley Armstrong novel. She has an amazing ability to keep readers glued to the pages from beginning to end and this book was no exception. If you liked the first two books in the series I'm sure you aren't even on here reading reviews to decide whether you should get this book because you would have already got it by now because the first two were so good. I am so excited to read The Gathering coming out not too far away I hope. It's not going to be the same characters but maybe they will still make an appearence? I can only hope!

Format: Paperback
I really, really loved the first two books in Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers series, so I was excited and also a bit sad to come to the end of the trilogy. It took me a little bit just to get into the book because I wanted to make it last as long as possible. When I came to the end of the novel, I was sad but also very pleased with how it all ended.

Reasons to Read:

1.Chloe's acceptance of her powers:

Throughout the whole Darkest powers series, Chloe has been very apprehensive about her newfound power. She refuses to use it(not even for practice), so she is basically left defenseless, acting as the damsel in distress. By the time the third book rolls around, she is still scared about using it, but she comes to an acceptance of it. She finally comes to realize that it's okay for her to use her power. The change is gradual, but I really liked seeing just how much Chloe has come along from the first book.

2.A twist! A twist!:

I really think that Kelley Armstrong writes twists well. While they are not the most unique plot twists there are, I do fnd myself genuinely surprised when I come across them. There have been plot twists in the previous two novels, but I really liked the ones in this particular book. I thought that they made a lot of sense to the plot, and they added to the overall story very nicely. There aren't too many turns, so you don't become tired of them easily. There are enough, though, to keep a strong interest in the book.

3.The Open Ending:

This book has one of those endings that you will either love or hate. I just happened to love it. Many of the loose ends are tied up at the end, but there are still a lot of questions that are left unanswered. I liked that the ending is left so open.
