Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: The Calling by Kelley Armstrong which is due to be released on April 10th

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.

At the end of The Gathering Kelley Armstrong left up with one heck of a cliffhanger.  While I have moved away from "Shifter" themed YA, I will be jumping back in to see what happens to these characters.  One of the things that I love about Armstrong's books is the way that the character from different series intertwine and how, with each book, we learn more and more about this grand world that she has built for her characters.  I look forward to the new twists and revelations that The Gathering most certainly has in store.

I stopped reading Armstrong after I read The Awakening. I don't know why, I just did. But I saw the book trailer for this one and I might consider going back and getting the Gathering. This one sounds awesome. Happy reading!
