Strange things are happening in Maya's tiny Vancouver Island town. First, her friend Serena, the captain of the swim team, drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. Then, one year later, mountain lions are spotted rather frequently around Maya's home—and her reactions to them are somewhat . . . unexpected. Her best friend, Daniel, has also been experiencing unexplainable premonitions about certain people and situations.You might have noticed that the 'what' label above the book has been replaced by 'why'. Well, that's because the sheer existance of this book is why I want it. I LOVED the Darkest Powers series, and was really excited when I found out there was going to be a companion series. I can't wait to return to Armstrong's fascinating and incredibly well written world of supernatural creatures.
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.
