This book takes off running right where The Gathering left off. After narrowly escaping not only being captured but a wildfire, the kids are finally safe and on a helicopter to meet up with their family members. Only, the helicopter isn't taking them to safety and soon they find themselves on the run.

It's been almost a year since I read The Gathering and I will admit that I forgot about the story of the book and who the characters were. So with not having a recap in the beginning of this one, I was lost for the majority of the story. I remembered bits and pieces about Rafe and Annie being skin walkers but that was about it. So it took a while to get my bearings and even at the end I still didn't remember who everyone was. Clearly, I need to reread the first one again.

However, with reading The Darkest Powers trilogy, this book reads about the same. They are a group of genetically altered super humans. Each has their own unique ability like warlock, necromancer, shape shifter. There are also bad guys chasing them, questions on who can and can't be trusted and they find out that their parents are either not their real parents or are in on the whole thing. So I got the jist of the story. What I'm really looking forward to is this team meeting up with the Darkest Powers team and it looks like that is where they are headed to next!

    Excited to read

    Kelley Armstrong is my second favorite author. The otherworld series is amazing. I loved the Summoning series and was so sad when it ended. The Gathering did not disappoint and I have been dying to read this book. I finally own it and cannot wait to dive in.
