The Awakening

 The second book of Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers series, The Awakening, sees fifteen year-old necromancer Chloe plotting her escape from the Edison Group.

I can't say too much without giving both the plot of the first book, but The Awakening is definitely a slightly weak bridge between The Summoning and The Reckoning, which is the final instalment in the series.  The first book definitely had a stronger story, this one tended to get a little repetitive in places, but The Awakening wasn't any less enjoyable.  I noticed the hints that Chloe will probably have to make a choice between the charismatic Simon or his grouchy but protective older brother Derek, but these possible romantic feelings were still a side note to the main plot.  Questions left from The Summoning about the Edison Group were answered, but enough were unanswered so that hopefully all can be revealed in what should be an interesting finale.
