Goodreads Synopsis:  My name is Chloe Saunders. I'm fifteen, and I would love to be normal.

But normal is one thing I'm not.

For one thing, I'm having these feelings for a certain antisocial werewolf and his sweet-tempered brother--who just happens to be a sorcerer--but, between you and me, I'm leaning toward the werewolf.

Not normal.

My friends and I are also on the run from an evil corporation that wants to get rid of us--permanently.

Definitely not normal.

And finally, I'm a genetically altered necro-mancer who can raise the dead, rotting corpses and all, without even trying.

As far away from normal as it gets.

My Review:
Tagline: "Kelley Armstrong will blow you away with all the actio, hype, and romance she binds in her last book!"
Asdfghjkl, I FINALLY read The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong and I'm literally still thinking about it! Kelley Armstrong takes you on a wild ride of emotions, action, and a touch of romance with Derek and Simon. I think by far one of the best books in this series. I love how its so easy to pick up her books like this one and just keep on reading without being way too much a "heavy paranormal" read and now this series is a must read! *head nods*

Right away The Reckoning starts where The Awakening left off, and I liked that about all of these books. Chloe and her friends just found Andrew and they on there way to head to his house planning before the Edison Group takes them back as there genetically altered paranormals. Chloe was just as fun and serious and I loved how she still stayed they same and true to herself! I'll definitly miss her as an amazing character, and knows how to take control of the story.
Of of the best parts of the book was the pacing. Really, no doubt she moves it up a notch from The Awakening and she grips you into her world you don't want to miss a second of this book!
Kelley Armstrong really didn't hold back on the last book! She amps up the pace and moves really fast till you are like "What?! I already finished?"  All the characters where amzing, like Tori who grew less annoying; Derek, who finally shows his feeling; and Simon the nerdy kid. But the ending? I knew that it could have been so much better and it wasn't something I expected but wanted a little more.  I think Kelley could have pushed the creativity envelope a little more, just because I was unhappy about the ending. 
Captivating, amazing, and writen well; The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong is a book I won't forget and definitly pick up this series if you are a paranormal junkie!


  1. I love Kelley Armstrong. I have to say that this is probably my most favorite YA book series.It's a very original book. I was hooked to it straight away.
