The Awakening
Kelley Armstrong
If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I'm as far away from normal as it gets. A living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I was genetically altered by a sinister organization called the Edison Group. What does that mean? For starters, I'm a teenage necromancer whose powers are out of control; I raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever. Now I'm running for my life with three of my supernatural friends—a charming sorcerer, a cynical werewolf, and a disgruntled witch—and we have to find someone who can help us before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.

Profile Picture

Chloe, who turns out to be a magical science experiment, can see and talk to ghosts. That's because she happens to be a necromancer. She runs away from Lyle House, where she was previously kept by members of The Edison Group, the group that actually genetically altered her. She's not alone. With her are Simon, a sorcerer; Derek, a werewolf; and Tori, a witch; not to mention her dead ghost friend Liz. Their goal is to find Simon and Derek's father, who could possibly help them retain their freedom.
