Publisher's Summary

"My name is Chloe Saunders. I'm 15, and I would love to be normal. But normal is one thing I'm not. For one thing, I'm having these feelings for a certain anti-social werewolf and his sweet-tempered brother - who just happens to be a sorcerer - but, between you and me, I'm leaning toward the werewolf.
"Not normal. My friends and I are also on the run from an evil corporation that wants to get rid of us - permanently. Definitely not normal.
"And finally, I'm a genetically altered necro-mancer who can raise the dead, rotting corpses and all, without even trying. As far away from normal as it gets."
Also included is a sneak listen to the first chapter of the Darkness Rising series. Enjoy!

Wished for a more complete closure

I wish there was a more finished ending, even just an epilogue or another book to have closure.

Best book of the trilogy

Any additional comments?

** spoiler alert **


So far this is the best book of the trilogy. Chloe finally figures out which guy she is really into and goes on her first date. Derek finally turns fully into a werewolf.

Margaret, a necromancer, who used to be one of the bad guys tries to help Chloe and instead refuses to believe Chloe (thinks she's making up stories) about how strong her powers are. And as you can guess this led to disaster....grave disaster. As in earth rocking, earth shattering, earth splitting graveyard disaster.

Why should an adult ever listen to a 15 year old? Don't adults always know better? Blah! Listen to the kid!!!

Tori finally calms down a bit and learns that she doesn't have to mouth off every 2.3 seconds....don't worry she's still plenty spunky and snarky...just not as mean.
I have 2 hours left of the audiobook and so far the story has just been awesome. There's a stronger sense of urgency, danger, intensity, desire, hopefulness and paranoia.

I'll stay tuned to the next 2 hours.... in the meantime I suggest you start listening to this trilogy.
It starts slow with the first book, gets more interesting with the second and really is brought home with the third!
This is by far the best book of the trilogy. The narration in this book was great. I think maybe the narrator was just trying to make herself sound young in the first book...because she really stepped it up for this book.

The adventure & intrigue & romance throughout the rest of this book was great. I listened to it nearly straight through.

Great book!
