Review of The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong

It’s a bit strange, but when I see The Awakening as a title, I always think of Kate Chopin. However, Kelly Armstrong’s book entitled The Awakening has nothing to do with Chopin. It is a continuation of the most excellent novel, The Summoning. Chloe is back, along with AHH -GUSH- Derek! The What The F-ery continues from the very opening. I would love to post a summary, but it would be unfair to those who have not read The Summoning yet.

I read The Awakening in four hours, yes I am boasting. It’s not because I am a particularly quick reader, but because The Awakening is akin to book-crack! There is never a dull moment, never a spot where I’m sitting there thinking, OH DEAR GOD JUST GET TO IT. Nor is characterization sacrificed in this book. I liked learning a bit more about Tori, even though I still hate her. There were moments when certain characters would do things, and I would legit say out loud, hands off buddy, Chloe DOES not belong with you. No, just no. GRRR arg, see Mr. Book Character, that is my scary reader face. Not that the words magically rearrange, since I’m not quite studying at Hogwarts (still awaiting my acceptance letter by Owl Post). Anyways, there is some killer tension, I would say it’s sexual, but you know, teens don’t do that.

While reading The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong, I suggest you investigate some Cream Jones Soda. I have mentioned before how much I love cream soda, well whenever I see a store selling the Holy Grail of cream sodas known as Jones Cream Soda, I purchase it. There’s one store and one gas station that I know of near me which sells Jones, pretty rare. I also think the way I was captivated by The Awakening and lust for the next book in the Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong (The Reckoning) is pretty rare too!
