Welcome to the next story in the Darkness Rising Series. This story takes place in Salmon Creek a while after the showdown between Chloe’s group and the Edison group. As you’ve probably guess this was also written by Kelley Armstrong. Before, I even started reading this I was crossing my fingers hoping that Chloe and the people in this story to cross paths. unfortunately, to my disappointment that didn’t happen…….this time. You never know they could come up in the next one.
Anyway, let’s get this show on the road.
This one is mostly revolved our Maya, who is a sixteen adopted Indian girl who lives in Salmon Creek. Salmon Creek is a very, very small town and Kelley made that absolutely clear in this book. She used to live there happily with her two best friends Serena and Daniel. When I mean used to live with, I mean the Serena girl died right in the first chapter of the story. It was kind of messed up of how things started and Maya got really suspicious about how she died. She has a right to be considering the fact that she drowned and she was the captain of the swim team.
Since, after that chapter I had thought up several different ways she could have died. Later, in the story I find out that I was right around the mark, but I won’t talk about that until later. Your just going to have to wait until next week’s post to know what I’m talking about.
Anyway, a year goes by and weird things start to happen to her. She can hear far away, heal animals and has become a star athlete,especially, when it comes to track. Even though, she isn’t on the team. I just couldn’t put my finger on what she was. I was going crazy thinking about it.
Things get stranger and more mysterious when our handsome and mysterious bad boy, Rafe, come into the mix. Now when it came to the romance in this story, I was torn between Daniel and Rafe. Rafe was that bad boy who liked playing the mystery card, but could tell he had a soft and protective side to him. Daniel, on the other hand, has been her best friend since they were kids and has always been with her through good and bad times. You can tell he really cares about her, but I couldn’t tell if this was a protective version of his friendship towards her or that he liked her more than a friend. Again I think that will be revealed later in the story.
This just keeps your head buzzing. It just makes you want to read more and more and make you cry when their aren’t any pages left. I highly recommend this series to all book lovers. I hope you enjoy the story as I have!
Thanks for Reading!
