Chloe, Simon, Derek and Tori have just escaped from the Edison group. The Edison group believes that they can manipulate the kids' DNA to improve their power control and help with the side effects. Any kids who didn't come out right were eliminated. After the four escaped they go to Andrew who is an ex-Edison group member. He has knowledge of where Derek and Simon's dad is. He also promises to help the kids avoid capture. Chloe and the rest must fight to survive, all the while dealing with zombies, freak powers, betrayal, ghosts of old friends, and those who want to use Chloe and Tori's powers.
"The Reckoning" is the third book in an action-packed series. Just like the other two, I couldn't put this book down once I started it. Fans of magical powers and werewolves will enjoy this paranormal tale. I am eagerly awaiting the next book by Kelley Armstrong, she can't write it fast enough to suit me.
