On the heels of the wildly popular "The Darkest Powers" series comes the first in another supernatural YA trilogy from New York Times bestelling author Kelley Armstrong.

Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can''t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students - for every grade from kindergarten to twelve. Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya''s determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya''s home, and they won''t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. It doesn''t help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret - and he''s interested in one special part of Maya''s anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark.

She bounced there, blond ponytail bobbing, cheeks puffing. Then she dove. It was, as usual, an effort worthy of the Olympics, and she sliced into the water so smoothly that barely a ripple pinged across the glassy surface.   She popped back up, sleek as a seal. “Your turn, Maya!” I flipped her the finger. She laughed and dove again. Serena was the swimmer—captain of the school team. It’s not my thing, really. This was the part I liked, just sitting on the rock ledge, bare feet dangling. I basked in the morning sun, drinking in the rich, late-summer air and the perfect view of the crystal-clear lake, the distant snow-capped mountains, the endless evergreens.   As Serena swam to the middle of the lake, I squinted over at the path, looking for a familiar blond head. Daniel was supposed to join us.   Daniel and I had been friends since I’d moved to Salmon Creek when I was five.

Editorial Reviews

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)
