YA Book Review: The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong

Continuing with posting about books I’ve previously read, I finished The Awakening (Darkest Powers series Book 2) (associate link) in 2012. This is what I wrote in my book journal:

The entire book took place over approximately 3 days. I tend not to like this, as character development and growth doesn’t seem as believable to me. I believe that characters need time to change—to reflect on what they’ve gone through and then learn from it. However, it made the story fast paced and quick moving. There were a few awkward places in the story—but not as bad as in the first book. I’m pretty sure I can see what’s coming in book 3, but I do really want to know how it all ends. 


I rated the book 3/5 stars.
