YA Book Review: The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong

The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong, is the third book of the Darkest Powers Trilogy. Like the other two books in this series, I read this back in 2012. This is what I wrote in my book journal:

Finally Chloe smartens up and makes some obvious decisions. Sometimes I think there’s nothing that irritates me as much as a novel that allows the reader to know something      L-O-N-G before the main character does. The entire way through the Darkest Powers Trilogy, I was amazed by the lacking of locations. This was definitely more of a character driven young-adult paranormal book, than a world driven book. I’m not sure it was my type. It was well written throughout, but not as heart-thumping as it could have been.


I gave the book 3/5 stars.


J. E. Hunter is the author of the Black Depths Series. Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch, and Broken Tide, the first two books of the series can be found on  Amazon,  Kobo,  iBooks,  Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords. The third book, Dark Shores, was released April 1, 2016. The fourth and last book of the Black Depths series, Twisted Currents, will be released in the fall of 2016, after Dead Water and Doomed Seas, two Novellas featuring Caesar.
