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.

Definite second-book-syndrome. I mean, when people say in middle books the characters are merely running around and biding time for the grand finale, they don't mean that the characters should actually be running around biding time for the grand finale. The Calling found our protagonist & co. runnin...
1.5 starsThe Calling was an utter disappointment and unnecessary book in the Darkness Rising series. Clearly this series could have been accomplished easily in two books, not three, and this is quite frustrating as a reader who has to get through the tedious book two. This is possibly my least favor...
