"It is perfect and I can't wait for more"
Every teenage girl would like to be special and different
but for Chloe Saunders it is a reality. She is a walking
science experiment who was genetically altered at birth.
Now she is being held by the Edison group and she doesn't
want to stay around long enough to find out what they want
to do with her. Especially now that her powers are starting
You see Chloe is a powerful necromancer. She has the
ability to see and communicate with ghosts and can also
raise the dead. Her powers need to be trained but right now
all she needs is freedom. So Chloe finds herself running
for her life with three other supernatural teenagers she
has met along the way. It isn't easy travelling with the
sorcerer, witch and werewolf, but they need each other if
they are going to survive. Hopefully Chloe can trust them
and maybe together they can come up with a plan to save
them from the Edison Group forever.
I love Kelley Armstrong's books and this one is no
exception. This young adult version of her Women of the
Otherworld series is just perfect. If you love Elena and
Clay then you will adore Chloe and her friends. Set in the
same world with the same rules I keep wanting to shout
out 'Go to Jeremy he will help' or 'Try and find Paige'. Of
course I am not sure if these youngsters will ever meet
with their fellow older Otherworld characters. That could
All in all this was brilliant. What else can you say about
something so well written and action packed. If you love
the paranormal genre and/or have visited the Otherworld
before, then this is a must read. Sure this is Young Adult
but it isn't that young and it isn't that old either. It is
perfect and I can't wait for more.
This is book two in the Darkest Powers trilogy. I didn't
realise it was a trilogy until reading this book and
thought it would be an on going series. However knowing
that only one more book is coming actually sounds good. I
just hope there won't be a long wait for the final part!
