Waiting on Wednesday-The Gathering

Waiting on Wednesday time, this is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine.  This week I have picked a book called The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong.  I have read some of Kelley’s other work and liked it so I want to give this new series a try.  Here is the summary from Goodreads.com

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.

I know I am intrigued, plus the cover looks great 🙂  What are you waiting on this week?

    • I have read 3 of the Women of the Otherworld books too and have not gone farther than that, so don’t feel too bad! I do want to get back to them soon, but my tbr pile is just too big right now.
