I’ve just discovered the US cover for the second book in the Darkness Rising series by Kelley Armstrong, and I am loving it! I was not overly keen on the US cover to the first in this trilogy, The Gathering (which I loved, by the way), but with this book, I am starting to come round. I know Kelley plans on introducing Derek and Chloe into this trilogy, and I can only hope that that happens in book 2!
The Calling (Darkness Rising #2) by Kelley ArmstrongApril 2012 – Goodreads
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 very last page!
Now I am extremely eager to find out what the UK publishers will come up with!
