Chloe Saunders is fifteen and would love to be normal. Unfortunately, Chloe happens to be a genetically engineered necromancer who can raise the dead without even trying. She and her equally gifted (or should that be 'cursed'?) friends are now running for their lives from the evil corporation that created them.

As if that's not enough, Chloe is struggling with her feelings for Simon, a sweet-tempered sorcerer, and his brother Derek, a not so sweet-tempered werewolf. And she has a horrible feeling she's leaning towards the werewolf...

Definitely not normal.

My rating: ★★★★★

After finishing up this book I was like: "Wait, that's all? I want more!" This book in the Trilogy wraps up the story with Chloe and the rest of her supernatural friends.

After they are betrayed, again, by the least expected person... again, they are re-captured by the Edison group who originally messed with their DNA and locked them up in the research facility. But also Chloe, who originally thought she might be having feelings for Simon, falls for Derek instead. Its a great romance story with twists and turns you wouldn't expect.

After running for so long and being captured so many times, they are finally able to escape from the lab for good... and the best part: Simon and Derek's dad, the only person who could help them and keep them safe, came to find them. So with his help and Chloe's aunt, who realized she made a big mistake by staying in the Edison group, fled to safety. But they'll have to stay hidden. The Eddison group will be looking for them, although its not their priority.

And with that, it left me wanting for more. But luckily, the series doesn't end just yet. So I'll be awaiting for the story to continue in the future.
