Maya Delaney’s paw-print birthmark is the sign of what she truly is—a skin-walker. She can run faster, climb higher, and see better than nearly anyone 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. Plentiful action and romance in this second installment in the Darkness Rising series will keep readers enthralled to the very last page!

*Summary taken from Goodreads.

I love anything that Kelley Armstrong writes, so I'm super excited about the sequel in her newest novel, The Calling. I've read her Darkest Powers series, and some of her adult books and was not disappointed. They're a lot of fun and totally full of memorable character's that somehow manage to worm their way into your heart. I've also heard some fantastic things about how she's so sweet, that she's a lot of fun to meet. I actually won a copy of the first book in this series The Gathering and I'll definitely be reading that pretty soonish.

The cover of this book is so pretty, I love the simplicity in it. The dark blackish blue tints, with slight purple overtones. Gorgeous.
