Kelley Armstrong is author of twelve international bestselling Women of the Otherworld books, the highly acclaimed Darkest Powers and Darkness Rising YA series, two mainstream thrillers about a hit-woman, and two short story collections. She lives in rural Ontario, Canada, with her husband, three children and far too many pets.
Praise for The Darkest Powers trilogy: "The suspense rarely lets up, and fans of Armstrong's adult Otherworld novels will enjoy the parallels between Chloe and her supernatural friends' adventures and those of their grown-up counterparts. Bring on the third novel.""Quill & Quire "(starred review) "Terrifying ghosts, smatterings of gore and diverse teen voices will prompt young adults to pick up the next in this series. . . . Teen readers might scream loud enough to raise the dead.""Kirkus "(starred review)
Gr 8 Up-Maya and her friends are no ordinary teenagers. Maya is a Skinwalker, an ancient being with the ability to transform into a cougar. And her friends have special powers as well. All this is part of a top-secret genetic experiment. Having survived a forest fire, a kidnapping, and a deadly helicopter crash, the teens face their greatest challenge yet-the vast and dangerous Vancouver Island wilderness. With both the Nasts and the St. Clouds hot on their trail, the teens' only hope is to find their way home to Salmon Creek. But rather than sanctuary, they find an abandoned town. When one of them miraculously returns from the grave, they realize too late that they've walked into a trap. Left alone in the aftermath, Maya must rescue her friends and find a way for them all to return to their families. But could this undertaking be too great-even for someone with Maya's unique abilities? Kelley Armstrong proves a true master of the paranormal genre with this gripping follow-up (2012) to The Gathering (2011, both HarperCollins). Well-rounded characters leap from the page, and the suspense builds. Jennifer Ikeda's expert interpretation of the text breathes further life into this already vibrant tale. A cliffhanger will have listeners eagerly awaiting the final installment of this trilogy. Give this to fans of Amanda Hocking and Karsten Knight.-Alissa J.
