Did you do it? Yes? Good.
I’m getting a little worked up myself.
The Gathering is the first novel in Armstrong’s new trilogy, Darkness Rising, set in the same universe as the sometimes chilling, yet fascinating, Darkest Powers series.

Check out the synopsis to the sure-to-be-fantastic The Gathering:
Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students—for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.
Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya’s determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya’s home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts experiencing “bad vibes” about certain people and things. 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.
