“This is the second book in The Darkest Powers series. In this book, Chloe has been captured by The Edison Group, the people who owned the Lyle House. This group tries to eliminate any Supernatural with an immense amount of power. While she is captured though, Simon and Derek are still out and hidden from The Edison Group. She escapes from her captors with the help of Tori ( a girl who originally she couldn't stand). Once they escape, they look for and find Simon and Derek. They all start looking for Simon and Derek's father. Instead they realize they could look for his friend. While looking for the friend Derek and Chloe get separated from Simon and Tori. They eventually meet at the friends place and are found by the Edison Group. They are being shot at and separated. Eventually they get saved by the friend and escape again.”Karina Rangel wrote this review 5 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Thriller, supernatural, and on-the-edge-of-your-seat all the time describes this book by Kelley Armstrong!The Awakening was such a thrilling book to read. While reading this, I never knew what was going to happen next, I was always on the edge of my seat. Kelley Armstrong writes in such brilliant detail, that leaves the reader always in suspense. Armstrong doesn't want any part of the book to be dainty and boring, she wants action and suspense to keep the reader attached. The main character, Chloe, is always in trouble or doing something full of action. I believe that this book deserves a five star rating because it never bores the reader out. The author uses her words and make all the details combine so nicely that I never wanted to put it down! Armstrong structures her details in a way that keeps the reader interested in the book. I would recommend this book to teenage girls because it is filled with drama, some romance and action; and the point of view is from a teenage girl. This book led me to understand that even if something or someone is holding you back, don't take "no" for an answer. ~Kristen Purcell”Mrs. Leone's English 8 Class wrote this review Sunday, November 3, 2013.

“I like the author, but I am not a fan of writing books with the only purpose of continuing a series. It was definitely not as good as the first, and I'm on the fence if I'll continue the series.”T Reckers wrote this review Tuesday, July 23, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“Chloe and her friends (Derek, Simon, and Tori) have escaped the halfway house they were running away from, only to be caught again. Chloe and Tori became separated from Simon and Derek, were captured and when The Awakening opens, they are being held in a secret facility. The Doc from the halfway house is playing Mr. Nice, trying to get Chloe to trust him. Tori's mom is full of hate, even toward her own daughter.
This is a fun read, with plenty of suspense and some dangerous moments the kids endure. The narration is great, with my only issue being the occasional words that I really don't think a teen would use - some of the phrasing is too much like an uber-edutcated adult, nothing I would expect a 15 or 16 year old to be thinking or saying. Happily for me, this was infrequent, because that is the kind of thing that will yank me right out of a story. I'll be FEELIN' the story, in the book, completely engrossed, and the wrong turn of phrase, something that doesn't match the characters will jar me right out of it.
Bottom line, though, is that when the book is finished, I ended up with a good feeling of having read a pretty good book, and wanting to read more.
One of the things I like about this book, is that while we don't see any of the characters from the Women of the Otherworld series in the novels, we're still in the same world. It's not common knowledge that werewolves, demons or magic users exist; teens that are exhibiting signs of magical ability or were abilities are taken by this particular group, convinced they have a mental illness and studied...with the hint of a dangerous future.
This young adult series is another facet of Armstrongs Women of the Otherworld.”
