Waiting on Wednesday #21

The Calling
(Darkness Rising #2)
by Kelley Armstrong
Publication Date: April 2012
Publishers: HarperTeen

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! -Goodreads


AHHHHHHHHH!! I LOVE THIS SERIES! :) Ahem... Thanks to the awesome Ruby @Ruby Reads, I discovered the cover for The Calling had been released. I love the cover, although her eyes look a bit freaky.  Ah, I can't wait to read this!!

  5. Can you believe that I haven't read anything by Kelley Armstrong yet? Yes, I'm that awful. :D But this just reminds me that I have to change that soon, because I've heard so many amazing things about her books.

  23. I'm embrassed to admit that even though I have The Gahtering on my shelf, I still haven't read it yet or anything from Kelley Armstrong. There just aren't enough hours in the day lately.

    Cool eyes, she looks like a seer.

  33. *New follower*

    I love Kelley Armstrong and I cant wait for this to be released

    ReplyDelete
  34. Really looking forward to this one! The first book ended on such a cliffhanger, but it was amazing! Great pick!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't think the actual book will have the milky eyes. I saw Kelley Armstrong updated her website on Twitter with the book cover image, and I noticed the one on her site didn't have the milky eyes, only the Goodreads picture did. I love the cover though! I'm hoping the eyes will be the like the ones on Kelley's site instead of Goodreads though. lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. The model on this cover is very pretty. Her eyes are amazing. Great choice.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ooh, great pick! I hadn't heard the title or seen the cover of this one, so thanks! Must have :-)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great choice! The first book was awesome, just reviewed it.

    I didn't think it was possible for the second book in the trilogy to have an equally cool cover.

  39. I haven't read the first yet but this sounds good.
