A powerful secret. A desperate race for survival.

Maya and her friends are on the run. Having escaped a deliberately set forest fire and a fake rescue team with dark intentions, they were just beginning to feel safe again. Then their helicopter crashes near the Vancouver Island wilderness, and Maya and her friends realize they're about as far from safe as they can get.

But Maya has a secret. She can run faster, climb higher, and see nearly anyone else. It's part of who she really is--and it has something to do with her mysterious paw-print birthmark. Yet as Maya and her friends face unforeseen dangers, it becomes clear she's not the only one in their close-knit group who has something to hide. And if they're going to survive, they'll need all their extraordinary abilities to help them get back home.

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.
