Reccomended Books: Darkest Powers Trilogy

The Summoning:
Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for 'disturbed teens'. At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her room mate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behaviour. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems...? Chloe realizes that if she doesn't uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse...? Can she trust her fellow students, and does she dare reveal her dark secret?

"Something like that.""So what was that? A zombie?" Liz tried to sound calm, but her voice crackled.
"And you---you can resurrect the dead?"
I stared at the crushed bat and murmured, "I wouldn't casll it a resurrection."
"What about people? Can you"---she swallowed---"do that?"
I nodded.
"So that's what Tori's mom meant. You raised zombies at the Lyle House."

The Awakening:
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. I'm a living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I can raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever. I’m running for my life with three of my supernatural friends and we have to find someone who can help us gain our freedom back before the Edison Group finds us first.  Or die trying.
Coming May 1, 2010

The Reckoning:
Only two weeks ago, life was all too predictable. But that was before I saw my first ghost. Now, along with my supernatural friends Tori, Derek, and Simon, I’m on the run from the Edison Group, which genetically altered us as part of their sinister experiment. We’re hiding in a safe house that might not be as safe as it seems. We’ll be gone soon anyway, back to rescue those we’d left behind and to take out the Edison Group . . . or so we hope.

You can visit the Official Kelley Armstrong site for tons of information and goodies on the Darkest Powers trilogy, and also several of the other series she wrote. Or visit the Official Chloe Saunders (the main character) website for some extra goodies. In the soundtrack (list made by author) they included 'Ready, Set, Go' by Tokio Hotel (woot she rocks!).
