The First Sentence
After four nights on the run, I was finally safe.
Summary (from Goodreads.com)
Only two weeks ago, life was all too predictable. But that was before I saw my first ghost.
Now, along with my supernatural friends Tori, Derek, and Simon, I’m on the run from the
Edison Group, which genetically altered us as part of their sinister experiment. We’re hiding
in a safe house that might not be as safe as it seems. We’ll be gone soon anyway, back to
rescue those we’d left behind and to take out the Edison Group . . . or so we hope.
Review and Rating
This is my first time trying my review this way, so I hope you enjoy it!
I completely understand why Kelley Armstrong is a #1 New York Times Bestselling author-
because her book is full of such a riveting adventure that you just can't let go of it! I
happened to be with a friend at My Dad's Friends Birthday party for his daughter who just
turned 1 year old when I was reading the book-it completely captured me into it. Everything
was crystal clear, and I could understand who was what and everything that happened. I
thought it was amazing that she could just make you be drawn into the book, and make it feel
like you were there, feeling everything that the characters were feeling.
Plot-cat (5 stars)
Kelley Armstrong had the element of suspense included in her story-just enough-but not
enough to make us bored, which is a good thing. I liked the way she incorparated suspense
throughout the story, and I just loved how Kelley Armstrong's book makes us hold on and
never let go. So I have a feeling I know what I'm going to rate suspense for the reckoning.
What do you think?
Suspense-cat (5 stars)
The ending was pretty good, the only problem I had with it was that The Edison Team was
still after them, so it was like "What's going to happen to them next?" We don't know what
happens next unless the author decides to write another story. I think it would be better if
they just escaped without the Edison Group/Cabals (Or something like that) coming after
Ending-hamster (3 stars)
I absoloutely LOVE the cover. I believe that's Chloe on the cover, wearing her necromancer
Amulet. The cover of the Reckoning Symbolizes the main character amd who she is. I also
thought that since they put Chloe on the cover it sort of symbolized that this was her book-
where you could see what she was feeling (and you did) and understand everything from her
point of view.
Cover-cat (5 stars)
There's about almost no flaws I can find. The settings in the Reckoning are crystal clear, but
there aren't as many details or descriptions that I'd like their to be-sometimes if you give too
much details your reader gets bored-but it's good to have some, at least.
Setting/Description-dog (4 stars)
Thank you so much to Harpercollins who has kindly sent me a copy of The Awakening By Kelley Armstrong!
