The Gathering (Darkness Rising, #1)The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After losing her best friend Maya has been trying to find normalcy again, with her birthday coming up she is looking at what is next in her life. Living in a sheltered environment, Maya is close to her best friend Daniel who is her protector. Rafe, a new student keeps tryung to make the moves on Maya but she is not having it, however Rafe has more in common with Maya than she thinks. A paw print birthmark, a journalist looking for answers, and a hidden danger that is surrounding their tiny town is about to unveil some hidden truths that they may not want the answers for.

Overall an intriguing story, I thought it was a bit slow at times and wanted to see more progress in the story than at the end. Has a bit of a cliffhanger type ending but you do feel like you get a complete story. I liked all the characters in the story didn’t have much of a romance more of just a young adult paranromal/fantasy story. Will check out the next book.
