Things start to heat up in The Awakening. If you’ve read my last post then you already know that this book is the second book to the Dark Powers series by Kelley Armstrong.
Anyway, in this book it becomes an adventure in which the four supernatural teens are searching desperately for Simon and Derek’s missing father.Orginally, the four run aways were supposed to be Chloe, Simon and Rae. But, as the saying goes shit happens and now its Chloe, Simon, Tori and Derek on the run from the Edison Group. The Edison Group is a group of magical doctors whose goal was to help other supernaturals with their problems and help co-exist with society. What seems helpful to them turns to become deadly for our main heroes.
In the second book it looks like Chloe’s patience and caring nature are tested when she becomes forced to travel with Tori and Derek. I think if Simon wasn’t there then I think she would have bolted long ago and went her own way and I wouldn’t blame her. Eventually, we see a little bit of a romantic twist in this story when it starts to hint that Simon AND Derek might have a thing for our cute necromancer. Of course, everyone probably thinks that she’ll end up with Simon, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
Warning: Spoiler approaching!
When our main characters have no choice end up splitting for reasons I will not reveal. You start seeing Derek going a little bit soft on her and really start to bond. I found his protectiveness touching when it came to protecting her. I was kind of hoping that they might become an item before they reunite with the others, but no such luck. Now that I have seen the protective and softer side of him I’m starting to hope that they will get together. Sorry, Simon!
After, reading the book I wondered about what Simon and Derek’s adventure was like during the sepeartion. According, to Tori it wasn’t pleasant, which only made my curisoity grow even more. Turns out that you can read about their adventure from a book called “Darkest Powers Bonus Pack”. I very much look forward to reading that one.
I can’t wait to see what is going to happen in the third book. I bet she’ll try to make this one as cool and amazing as possible before it reaches its end.
Thanks for Reading!
