Review: The Reckoning

Chloe and her pack are happy they found Andrew, someone from the brothers' past they can trust. He provides them with a home --beds, food, and a roof over their heads. Andrew used to work for the Edison Group and he knows people with similar powers.

He gathers them to meet the pack. Chloe, Tory, and Simon now have a chance for training. No one can help Derek, as there aren't any other werewolves in the group. He'll have to go through this change on his own. The training begins, but the adults do not believe in the strength of the pack's powers. One woman forces Chloe to go into a graveyard and raise the dead. She refuses to believe Chloe can simply summon the dead without the use of spells.

When she realizes the truth, she's afraid. She has the same powers as Chloe, but on a much smaller scale. With the adults afraid of their powers, especially Derek's werewolf form, no one is comfortable. Everyone's jumpy and before long, Chloe starts second guessing everything.

Slowly the plan to rescue friends from the Edison Group fizzles forcing the pack to reevaluate their situation. Something seems a bit off, but they can't quite put their fingers on it. Are they really safe or this house just a cover with danger lurking right around the corner?

My Thoughts: I'm sad to see this series end. I Loved the danger, the friendship, the double crossings, the twists, the action and the paranormal elements. The ending fit perfectly, very satisfying.

The Cover: Awesome - love the similarities of the series

Fun Fact: Taken from K. Armstrong's journal:
While this is the last book in the trilogy, it's not the end of the series. Book 4, The Gathering, comes out next spring. You won't find a page for it here because of the site overhaul, though. The Gathering adds new characters to the series while the current ones take a well-deserved break!

Awesome news!

I haven't read any of Kelley Armstrong's books yet, but she's been on my wish list for a long time. My TBR list is extremely long, but I hope to get to her some day.
