A different twist on supernatural teen picks

Status: Bookseller Picks

A long loved adult author has made her way into teen fiction with the recent Darkest Powers series. Kelley Armstrong (Women of the Otherworld series), shows she can impact all age groups with heroine Chloe Saunders.


The Darkest Powers series, The Summoning, The Awakening, and the newest installment The Reckoning, follows a group of supernatural teens as they battle to survive.  Armstrong incorporates several supernatural elements including werewolves, witches, sorcerers, and necromancers.


It is a great follow-up series to anyone who is having difficulty finding something to read after finishing the addicting Twilight series (you know what I mean!). It features exciting characters with twists and turns all the way through.

The Summoning (Darkest Powers Series #1)


The Awakening (Darkest Powers Series #2)


The Reckoning (Darkest Powers Series #3)
