The Reckoning (Darkest Powers Book 03)
by Kelley Armstrong


The nail-biting climax to Kelley Armstrong’s bestselling YA series. Chloe Saunders is fifteen and would love to be normal. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. First of all, she happens to be a genetically engineered necromancer who can raise the dead without even trying. She and her equally gifted (or should that be ‘cursed’?) friends are on the run from the evil corporation who created them. To top it all, Chloe is struggling with her feelings for Simon, a sweet-tempered sorcerer, and his brother Derek, a not so sweet-tempered werewolf. And she has a horrible feeling she’s leaning towards the werewolf. Definitely not normal…

The darkest powers series is written in the same universe as the Otherworld series but other than a few vague references to characters and places they both don’t interact. The Reckoning is the last book in the trilogy and while it answered most questions it did leave enough material and ended the story in a manner that left the possibility of more books in the series later on. I liked the book, however it had been a while since I read the previous books so I didn’t remember all of the back story completely. While the book did cover most of the current story in a way that it was possible to keep up there were some parts where an explanation of who/what something was would have helped. The characters are well rounded and their personality and quirks are well explained instead of just being pushed on you. Final recommendation: A good read. Read the other books in the series before you read this one, otherwise you might not understand parts of the book – Suramya
