Book Review: The Darkest Powers: The Reckoning

                                  The Darkest Powers:The Reckoning Review
The final book of The Darkest Powers series starts off with Chloe, Derek, Simon and Tori at Andrew's house who was a trusted friend of Derek and Simon's father so they think that they are safe at least for now but they also know that the Edison group is still out there and still looking for them. During the first part of the book Chloe, Tori and Simon are to be given lessons on how to use their abilities and it soon becomes clear that Chloe and Tori are unusually powerful which frightens Andrew and the colleagues that he brought in. It soon becomes clear that Andrew and his colleagues might have their best interest at heart and could very well be working for the Edison group or at least someone like them. Chloe, Derek, Simon and Tori end up trying to find a way to escape before they end up prisoners of the Edison group once more.

There's also a subplot where Chloe realizes after a date with Simon that she actually likes Derek and that she really is better off just staying friends with Simon. Overall this was a very minor part of the book but I think that it was dealt with nicely and I liked that it was never the most important thing since their lives were in danger through out the book.

I overall really loved the book and the series as a whole and I felt like this was a pretty good conclusion to the series even though it ended a bit open ended overall I think it fit with the rest of the series. I loved that there were a bunch of twists, turns and reveals in the second half of this novel but in order to avoid major spoilers I really can't talk about them but it made the book really exciting which something that all three of the books in the series were and I really enjoyed and cared about the characters as well which is always a good thing in my book. Please tell me your thoughts on this series and this book.
