The Reckoning: Review

The Reckoning (Darkest Powers, #3)
The Reckoning
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Publisher: HarperCollins
Series: Darkest Powers Trilogy #3
Pages: 391


Chloe Saunders is fifteen and would love to be normal. Unfortunately, Chloe 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 now running for their lives from the evil corporation that created them.

As if that's not enough, 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... (Goodreads)

My Thoughts:

In this final book in the Darkest Powers Trilogy, Chloe and the gang are on the run from the people who were involved in creating them. Chloe is starting to fall for Derek. Will she end up with him or Simon? I know a lot of people are all "Team Derek" but I really like Simon! I think he is such a sweetheart. I can understand why people would be rooting for Derek though too. Ugh. Can't there be two of Chloe so she can be with both of them?! Chloe has grown a lot as a person since the first book. I really like Chloe because even though she is a very powerful necromancer, it doesn't go to her head. She is very humble which is a breath of fresh air. A lot of female protagonists aren't like this.

Even though this is the last book in the trilogy, there is still a lot left to wonder about which makes me think that we may be seeing Chloe again in another series, which I think is a brilliant way to keep you readers buying more books! I really love how Kelley Armstrong's books intertwine, I think it makes it even more interesting and you get a better view of the entire world Armstrong has created. I will definitely be reading more of her books.

Have you read this or any other series by Kelley Armstrong?
