Wishlist Wednesday #9

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly post put on by Dani at the Pen to Paper blog. Where you post a book you really really want to read or one that has been on your wishlist! If you've seen my to-read list on Goodreads then you know there are plenty that I could use. So I decided to use this feature every Wednesday.

Title: The Rising
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Release Date: April 2013
Series Number: 3

Summary from Authors site:

Things are getting desperate for Maya and her friends. Hunted by the St. Clouds and a rival Cabal, they’re quickly running out of places to hide. And with the whole world thinking they died in a helicopter crash, it’s not like they can just go to the authorities for help.

All they have is the name and number of someone who might be able to give them a few answers. Answers to why they’re so valuable, and why their supernatural powers are getting out of control.

But Maya is unprepared for the truths that await her. And now, like it or not, she’ll have to face down some demons from her past if she ever hopes to move on with her life. Because Maya can’t keep running forever.

My Thoughts:
The Rising is part of the Darkness Rising Trilogy. It is a spin off of Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers series which is one of my favorite series of all time! I know that this one doesn't come out for quite some time but, I love the first two books and can't wait for it to come out. I have a soft spot for these books because the Darkest Powers series was one of the first ones I read and I have read them numerous times. The Darkness Rising series is similar but, with different characters with different powers. It should be very interesting to see where this one goes! 


  1. I love this series too. Maya and her freak friends are so cool!

  2. I just read The Gathering and really enjoyed it...although I have to admit that I was a little frustrated by how she left me hanging. I need to get started on the next book so I can find out how the best friend died so suddenly in the lake.
