Summary (from Goodreads):
On the heels of the wildly popular The Gathering comes the second in the "Darkness Rising" YA trilogy from NYT bestselling author Kelley Armstrong.

Maya Delaney's paw-print birthmark is the mark of what she truly is--a skin-walker. She can run faster, climb higher, and see better than nearly everyone else. Experiencing intense connections with the animals that roam the woods outside her home, Maya knows it's only a matter of time before she's able to Shift and become one of them. And she believes there may be others in her small town with surprising talents.

Now, Maya and her friends have been forced to flee from their homes during a forest fire they suspect was deliberately set. Then they're kidnapped, and after a chilling helicopter crash, they find themselves in the Vancouver Island wilderness with nothing but their extraordinary abilities to help them get back home.

I simply cannot wait to get my hands on The Calling, the second novel in Kelley Armstrong's Darkness Rising trilogy! The Gathering was a great introduction to the trilogy, raising questions about the St. Cloud Corporation and building up the mystery for later on. If it progresses in a similar fashion to the Darkest Powers series, I just know the books are only going to get more and more exciting! And I just have to know what happens next after the way The Gathering ended...

  1. I can't wait either. I loved the first book. And Kelley Armstrong is such a nice author.

  2. I don't think I've heard of this series before. But the summary sounds interesting, I'll have to take a look at the first one. I have heard Kelley Armstrong's name mentioned here and there, but never really what she wrote. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

  6. I still need to read The Gathering (and the Darkest Powers series), but I can't wait! From what I understand, her books are like crack in their addictiveness.
