About the Book:
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.
Chloe leads us on an adventure in this Darkest Power Series. As a fifteen year old necromancer; Chloe is no ordinary girl. Talking to ghosts and bringing the dead back to life is more than enough for one young girl, but now she finds herself on the run with only her three friends. Simon, Derrick, and Tori are all superhuman with special abilities that landed them in the same mental instution as Chloe. When things being to unravel it is soon apparent that they are all in danger. All three books thus far have followed a timeline of just over a week. Chloe and her friends are continuing to run, but will find themselves at a dead end in this book.  The entire journey seems to have made one huge circle that is still not allowing them any answers. With the list of enemies ever growing these four kids have no idea whom to trust or where to turn. Kelley Armstrong is a very experience author, and very talented story builder. I have followed many of her series, and her talents never cease to amaze me. After completing The Reckoning I was reading the description for The Gathering it seems that the next novel is about two new characters. I am interested to see if this novel was the end to Chloe, Derrick, Simon, and Tori; or if the next book is just a break that will add more amazing characters to this series.
