You don’t have to be alive to be awakened.

If you had met Chloe Saunders a few weeks ago, you probably would have described her as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now her life has changed forever, and she’s as far away from normal as it gets. She is a living science experiment: not only can she see ghosts, but she was genetically altered by a sinister organization called the Edison Group. She’s a teenage necromancer whose powers are out of control, which means she can raise the dead without even trying.

Now Chloe is running for her life with three of her supernatural friends—a charming sorcerer, a cynical werewolf, and a disgruntled witch—and they have to find someone who can help them before the Edison Group catches them … or die trying.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Geli | 2/15/2014

    " I'm really starting to love this series. Although it can be slow at times it not boring. But like the first book, they leave you hanging wanting more! The writing is great and for a teen novel isnt at all preachy. And with all the other supernatural books other currently this one is very refreshing and different. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Lexi Slobodnik | 2/14/2014

    " This book was my favorite in the series, not only do you learn more about the supernatural world but you learn more about Chloe and her friends. Tori's personality is explained and altered little by little, Chloe and Simon become closer. But I think Derek went through the most character development and bonding (other than Chloe) in this book. "

    " I liked this book so much I read it in two days. It was so good I couldn't put it down. I just read all weekend. This book put me on the edge of my seat while I read it. I cannot wait to get the next/last book to the series, "The Reckoning" "

About the Author
Author Kelley Armstrong

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers’ dismay. All efforts to make her produce “normal” stories failed. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts, demons, and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She is the author of the Darkest Powers young adult urban fantasy trilogy, the Women of the Otherworld paranormal suspense series, and the Nadia Stafford crime series. She lives in southwestern Ontario, Canada, with her husband, kids, and far too many pets.

Her voice has also been heard on television in commercial campaigns for Samsung, Silk Soy Milk, and numerous Nickelodeon and Disney products. She is the voice of many cartoon characters, including Leo and Luna in Yu-Gi-Oh, Carrie in Barbie: A Fairy Secret, Nathan in Pokémon, and Lola in Angelo Rules.
