The Awakening

The Awakening

‘[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.
