Darkness Rising trilogy by Kelley Armstrong

The Gathering, The Calling, The Rising by Kelley Armstrong

So, I needed an audio book for puzzling and decided to check my Goodreads list of over 1800 ‘want to read’ titles 😂. I looked at the oldest page of the list and found Kelley Armstrong’s The Gathering, the first of a YA supernatural trilogy that I added to my wish list in 2012. Yep, 10 years ago. I started listening last Wednesday, then listened to the next one, and then read 406 pages of The Rising over the last two days. So, I finished the trilogy in less than a week. Take that for the recommendation it is. If you like skin walkers and other supernatural creatures that would be a bonus.

Maya just turned 16 and lives in a small community nearish Vancouver. She has friends and is popular. But she’s about to have her world come crashing down when she finds out that she is special and so are her friends thanks to the gene testing by the cabal that runs their whole lives. There’s danger, friendship, love, death, and decisions no one should have to make.

I was looking for something completely different than my usual read and this trilogy fit the bill nicely. I’ll have to check out more of Armstrong’s books.

What’s your favorite Armstrong book or trilogy?

    I’ve read the first three books of her Rockton series and plan to keep going (there are 7 I think). Not my usual genre but I’ve enjoyed them!

    I’m also a big fan of this author’s Rockton series and have read all the books that are currently out. I have read her ‘Darkest Powers’ trilogy as well and liked it. Actually, I’ve read those 3 books more than once. I think there is a bit of connection to this trilogy you just finished. Glad you liked the books!

    I know this trilogy is probably on my list from 2012 or so as well! I’ll have to read it this year. High recommendation for some fan YA fantasy. Sweet.
