"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by 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 Gathering (Darkness Rising, Book 1)
by Kelley Armstrong
Release Date: April 12, 20111
Strange things are happening in Maya's tiny Vancouver Island town. First, her friend Serena, the captain of the swim team, drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. Then, one year later, mountain lions are spotted rather frequently around Maya's home—and her reactions to them are somewhat . . . unexpected. Her best friend, Daniel, has also been experiencing unexplainable premonitions about certain people and situations.
It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret, and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy—her paw-print birthmark.
Yay! A new YA Kelley Armstrong! I have loved her all series in the Women of the Otherworld! She writes such interesting characters and they embody such powerful women. Cannot wait for this new YA series, especially since that last one kinda ended without a real conclusion. Hopefully this will continue like her adult series and weave older characters into it's story line. Anyways, I already have it on pre-order on my Nook Color!
