Waiting on Wednesday: The Gathering

Waiting on Wednesday is hosting by Jill at Breaking the Spine






Book: The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong
Release Date: April 12th, 2011
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Harper Collins
Description: Strange things are happening in Maya's tiny Vancouver Island town. First, her friend Serena, the captain of the swim team, drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. Then, one year later, mountain lions are spotted rather frequently around Maya's home—and her reactions to them are somewhat . . . unexpected. Her best friend, Daniel, has also been experiencing unexplainable premonitions about certain people and situations. 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.

Let's see... why am I "waiting on" this? First of all, I freaking LOVE Kelley Armstrong - I will read anything she writes. Plus, The Darkest Powers Trilogy is one of my favorite Young Adult series.. ever. I would be  more excited if this was a fourth Chloe book. I may just give up a kidney for the next Chloe book. No, I wouldn't, but you get my point. I am sure that this new trilogy (set in the Darkest Powers world) will be awesome too. I will try not to whine about missing Chloe and Derek too much :)
