The Calling: Review

The Calling (Darkness Rising, #2)
The Calling
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Publisher: Harper
Series: Darkness Rising #2
Pages: 326


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.

My Thoughts:

The Calling picks up right where the first book left off. Maya and her friends are on the run through the wilderness trying to get back home and find safety. I really want Maya to end up with Daniel. I am frustrated that she hasn't given him a chance to be more than friends. I think they would be a great couple and I'm praying that it doesn't work out with Rafe. I'm not sure why but I just don't care for him the way I do Daniel. I feel like Maya and Daniel know each other better, they care about each other, and Daniel is such a great guy! (So far.) I know Maya and Rafe have things in common but that's about it for me. *Sigh*

I enjoyed the first book in this trilogy better than this one but I'm hoping that the final book will just blow me away. I'm really excited to see how the trilogy ends! There were hints of Chloe from the Darkest Powers trilogy in this book so I'm guessing Maya and Chloe will be meeting in the third installment?? That would be very exciting! I like the Darkest Powers trilogy even more than this one. I really like how the two trilogies interlock with each other, it makes it even more interesting in my opinion.
