Sixteen-year-old Maya is just an ordinary teen in an ordinary town. Sure, she doesn't know much about her background - the only thing she really has to cling to is an odd paw-print birthmark on her hip - but she never really put much thought into who her parents were or how she ended up with her adopted parents in this tiny medical-research community on Vancouver Island.

Until now.

Strange things have been happening in this claustrophobic town - from the mountain lions that have been approaching Maya to her best friend's hidden talent for "feeling" out people and situations, to the sexy new bad boy who makes Maya feel . . . . different. Combine that with a few unexplained deaths and a mystery involving Maya's biological parents and it's easy to suspect that this town might have more than its share of skeletons in its closet.

In The Gathering, New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong brings all the supernatural thrills from her wildly successful Darkest Powers series to Darkness Rising, her scorching hot new trilogy.

My Review:

This book was was totally different than my usual pass by bookstore and grab a read that has to do with vampires,angels or werewolves. To be quite honest I didn't even read what this book was about. I saw it was by Kelley Armstrong and I grabbed it. I love fellow Canadian Kelley. Her writing style is amazing.

This book is about a girl named Maya. Maya was adopted when she was a baby. She struggles in this book to find herself and find out where she comes from. She has love for the outdoors, mountain lions and Rafe.

Rafe is the new guy who showed up at her school. He's tough around the edges and chases every girl at school only to break their hearts.

Rafe has an eye on Maya but Daniel doesn't let him get to close.

Daniel is Maya's best friend and Honestly Maya if you don't want him can I have him ???
Daniel is dreamy and understanding and popular and sexy and I can go on all day.

Maya learns about where she comes from and all of a sudden her life makes sense down to the paw print birthmark she loves.

Rafe helped her find her identity and Daniel never left her side when he found out the truth.

This book is awesome.. A must read and now I cant wait for the book signing so I can get my hands on The Calling which is the second book in this series.

oh BTW has anyone seen the book trailer for the calling . AWESOME!!!!
