Waiting on Wednesday (4)

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m look forward to April, for my pick. It’s a book I’ve been waiting for, for a while – the second in a trilogy. It’s by one of my favourite authors and I REALLY cannot wait to read it.

Darkness Rising #2

The Calling by Kelley Armstrong, UK edition cover.

The Calling (Darkness Rising #2)
by Kelley Armstrong

Published: 5th April 2012

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.

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!

I cannot say how excited I am to get my hands on this book. I’ve noticed a few people have managed to get hold of ARC copies of the book and I am super jealous!! Based on Kelley’s previous books – both YA and adult – I don’t see how this can be anything other than brilliant. I can’t wait to get started!!

What book are you “waiting on” this week?

  1. Can you believe I haven’t read anything written by Kelley yet (only a short story from an anthology but that doesn’t really count). I think I’ll definitely need to change that soon, so maybe I’ll start this series sometime later this year. Hope you’ll enjoy the second book of this series! 🙂

  2. I hope it lives up to your excitement! I was a bit disappointed by it, but I still can’t wait for the next.

    Thanks for stopping by!
