"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. 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."
Once I found out that Kelley Armstrong was going on with her Darkest Power series, I was so excited. Then I found out that there was totally new characters, and I was doubtful. But she did not disappoint.
Plot: Overall, I really liked the plot. It didn't really get anywhere, and absolutely no questions were answered, but as long as she has two more books, I love where the book is going.
Main Characters: I love Maya because she is so head strong and stubborn. Sometimes she makes you want to scream because she is too stubborn, but it all works out. I can't help but think of Derek when Daniel comes into the story! They just seem the same to me and I love him! Rafe is a whole other story though. Throughout the whole thing, you have to work really hard to figure out what he's all about.
Cover: I have to say, I miss the necklace theme, but this works nicely for this story, seeing as a necklace would make no sense.
Overall Rating: How can I not give my favorite series 4 nail polishes? Though, so far, it can't op the original three, I still love it. Plus, I got a lot of goosebumps when the "Genesis Project" happened to be mention and she had no idea what it was about, but I did. Loved this book, and it was exciting all the way through. Just don't expect any question to be answered.
