Synopsis from B&
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.

My Thoughts
This starts back up where The Summoning left off. Chloe and her friends have been captured by the Edison Group, the group of scientists who have been conducting experiments with the supernatural teens. 
I liked this book significantly less than the first book because nothing really happened. The whole book, all 350 something pages is of the teens trying to find Simon and Derek's father. The whole book is the journey, I really don't feel like it moved the story along at all. Almost none of my previous questions were answered and left me with even more. There is only one book left so hopefully this series gets wrapped up nicely in the next book. I'm taking a tiny break from this series though.
