The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong
I feel like I defiantly should have read this series before the Darkness Rising, but I wasn't aware of it. I kind of stumbled on The Gathering and just went with it with out reading what it was about but I defiantly wish I read this series first... It would not have made a HUGE difference but it would have given a little bit more of a background on the experiments and the different races. That is one of the things I did love about this series. There was a variety of races instead of focusing on one. I mean yes, Chloe's gifts were talked about more than the rest but the rest were still explained and were still a big part of the story.
There was nothing wrong with the book. It was very well written and the story kept my interest the whole time. I can honestly say I didn't skip any parts of it ( I am terrible at that. I do it often). I don't read a lot of YA books anymore just because I tend to get annoyed with some of the immature things the MC gets upset about ( I am aware that I am 26 and I still act 16. I just don't want to read about it) And there were a lot of moments in this book were I was like oh my god, so juvenile. especially the love triangle. I kind of hated it in this book. But I mean Chloe was 15.. And just turned 15 too. I don't even remember being 15.
And I am so freaking glad Chloe ends up with who she ends up with. I would have given up on Kelley if Chloe had ended up with the other boy.. That just would have been wrong.
Not a series I will re-read but I do plan on reading Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series... Well right after I finally finish The Rising :)
