Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it spotlights upcoming books that we as readers are anxiously awaiting...

The Calling by Kelley Armstrong
Genre:  YA Urban Fantasy
Darkness Rising Series, Book 2
Expected publication date:  April 10, 2012

Note:  If you haven't read the first book, The Gathering, then there are some slight spoilers in the description below.

Description (taken from Kelley Armstrong's website):
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 last page.

I absolutely love Kelley Armstrong's books.  What's great about her books is that they're all set in the same world (her adult Otherworld series as well as her young adult series).  I don't think her young adult books are as good as her adult ones, but I still love them.  And if you haven't tried out her books yet, I'd recommend you go read them.
