Waiting to Read

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we can spotlight a book that we're anxiously waiting for....

The Gathering (Darkness Rising, #1)

The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong

400 pages

Summary from goodreads
Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students—for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.

Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya's determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya's home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. 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.

Kelley Armstong is an talented story teller and I am looking so forward to to reading this one.....
Only a little over 5 mths to wait.(sigh)
