48 Hrs - the Awakening

The sequel to The Summoning. I didn't like this one enough to want to review it--also, I enjoyed more of it this morning than I did last night, so possibly I was too punchy to do it justice. My overall impression was that it's almost nonstop action, which is surprisingly boring. Chloe's frequent references to movie tropes only highlights the fact that at times it almost feels more like a screenplay than a novel. There are so many twists, most of which don't make much sense or flow plausibly from the previous book. I was interested in the relationship developing between Chloe and Derek, so I might want to continue reading the series to see how that plays out.
