Maya Delaney's paw-print birthmark is the mark of what she truly is -a skin-walker. She can run faster, climb higher, and see better than nearly everyone 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. From Goodreads
Yes, it is another Kelley Armstrong book! This is the second book in the Darkness Rising series and I really liked it. It started right where the first book finished. A group of paranormal teenagers on the run and they don't even know who exactly they are running from. It is set in the same world as Women of the Otherworld as a couple of the Cabals are mentioned and also linked to the Darkest Powers series. It seems like all these kids are experiments and of the skin-walkers Maya has turned out right, keeping her intellect even when she is a cougar. I am looking forward to the last installment in this series.
