The Calling, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (3 ratings)


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 including local bad boy Rafe, with whom she shares a dangerous, powerful secret. Now, Maya and her friends have been forced to flee from their homes during a forest fire they suspect was deliberately set.

After a terrifying helicopter crash, they find themselves stranded in the Vancouver Island wilderness with nothing but their extraordinary abilities to help them get back home.

But can Maya really trust her friends? And can she learn how to control the frightening new gift she has discovered before it controls her?

Action, action, action, but not much happens. It wasn't bad, but I just didn't feel as connected to these characters as I did to the ones in the Darkest Powers series. <br/><br/>And honestly with the love triangle crap... Daniel or Rafe? Rafe or Daniel? I swear, I'm so tired of this cliché I've started rooting for Maia to end up with Sam! At least she's undeniably kick-ass and awesome!

Review by

A good sequel. Still not as good as the darkest powers trilogy. Am enjoying it nevertheless. Looking forward to the finale as it is rumoured that the darkness rising crowd meet up with the darkest power crowd.

Review by

Loved it. Starts off straight after the first book and for me it was as good as The Gathering. Cant wait to see what happens next.
