Choosing a favorite series is the hardest thing for an avid reader. I usually default to Harry Potter, because I do really enjoy that one and read it a lot. But I have other series I enjoy just as much, including the one pictured here.
THE AWAKENING, THE SUMMONING, and THE RECKONING makes up the Darkest Powers Trilogy by @kelleyarmstrongauthor
I originally found this series in my high school library, and I’ve been hooked on her YA books ever since. This paranormal trilogy follows Chloe, a necromancer, as she discovers her powers and uncovers a plot that involves not only her, but a host of other teens. While dealing with drama within the group and a growing attraction to one of her traveling companions, Chloe must discern who she can trust, and who she can’t.
The characters from this story appear in Armstrong's Darkness Rising trilogy as well, where both stories are wrapped up in a surprising but satisfying ending. I won't give anything away here, except that I was both surprised and pleased with the outcome. 😊
This is one of those series that I've read only a couple of times, but it's also one I keep recommending to people because I enjoyed it so much. As a reader of YA, I found that these two trilogies handled the life of a teen on the run very well, weaving the paranormal and abnormal teen life into a teen's everyday worries and struggles—if not in the same realms as most readers. I continue to read Armstrong's YA work (she also has some adult series and books I haven't gotten to yet) and am always satisfied with the story and the way the characters interact with each other and themselves. I will be reading her work for as long as it's out there. 💙💙
