Book 2 in the Darkness Rising series
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.
In THE CALLING, the sizzling second book in the Darkness Rising trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong pumps up the romance, danger, and suspense that left readers of THE GATHERING clamoring for more.
“Don’t move,” I muttered to the others. “Keep eye contact, but don’t move.” While I said that, the cougar looked at me. Her eyes opened wide and her round pupils widened. She raised her head and sniffed the air. Then she growled. I tried to take a step back. I knew I had to do that, but my legs refused service. I stopped where I stood and held her gaze, and when I did, everything around me seemed to disappear.
