The Awakening - Kelley Armstrong
Chloe, Simon, Derek and Tori are on the run from the Edison group. But Chloe is also trying to run away from her Necromancer abilities that have been haunting her. Unable to fully control her gift she has resurrected zombie bats, and homeless man. She is disturbed by ghost replaying their death scenes over and over. And humiliated by having conversations with someone only later finding out that someone is a ghost by everyone snickering at her for holding a conversation with herself.
Unable to fully understand her ability until they find Simon and Derek's father kit, but the Edison group is making that pretty tricking for them. Chloe is also not the only one having troubles. Derek is on the verge of his first change to a werewolf, Simon is a diabetic, and Tori is just stubborn. But, they do have the help of Liz, Chloe ex roommate now ghost poltergeist. She is able to scout out for them to make sure they don't run into trouble.
Though it looks like Simon and Chloe might have something going on. I really hope Derek and Chloe spark a relationship. Derek might be bossy and grouchy but I love his character always looking out for Chloe. Like Tori has said, it is always Chloe, Chloe, Chloe. But, it is fun to read about and I hope Tori gets a bigger lead and more responsibility in the next book.
This book was fun, full of adventures and kept at a pretty good pace. It is easy to read, really good book to read through the weekend with.
