Description

The second book in Kelley Armstrong's wildly popular Darkness Rising trilogy is now available in paperback!
     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. Her intense connection with the animals that roam the woods outside her home tells her that 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 as well.
     But then Maya and her friends are forced to flee from their homes during a forest fire they suspect was deliberately set. Next 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 survive. Will they be able to make it home alive?

About the author

When librarians finally granted Kelley Armstrong an adult card, she made straight for the epic fantasy and horror shelves. She spent the rest of her childhood and teen years happily roaming fantastical and terrible worlds, and vowed that someday she'd write a story combining swords, sorcery, and the ravenous undead. That story began with the New York Times bestselling Sea of Shadows and continues with Empire of Night.

Armstrong's first works for teens were the New York Times bestselling Darkest Powers and Darkness Rising trilogies. She lives in rural Ontario with her husband, three children, and far too many pets.
