- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2013 January #1
Skinwalker Maya Delaney, adopted Native American star student and athlete, grew up on a tiny island near Vancouver in a protected community, attending a specialized private school and glorying in her close friendships and the beautiful natural surroundings. When she realized her paw-shaped birthmark actually meant she could change into a cougar, she also learned that she and other young people with her abilities had been raised as research subjects. Having spent most of the second book running from pursuers, Maya and her friends turn and fight in this final volume of the Darkness Rising trilogy, challenging the two powerful cabals hunting down the paranormal teenagers. There are plot twists galore and an overly full cast of characters, which unfortunately means Maya's first-person narrative is necessarily heavy on explanations, deflating the more authentic teen voice of earlier titles. However, romance readers will enjoy the predictable yet satisfying resolution of Maya's conflicted romance, and action fans will savor the many cinematic moments, as the teens evade their pursuers, plot revenge, and settle family differences, all the while continuing to develop their special powers. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This title wraps up the New York Times best-selling Darkness Rising trilogy (The Gathering, 2011; The Calling, 2012) with an impressive national marketing campaign that includes a book trailer.
