December read along week 1

Maya Delaney's paw-print birthmark is the mark of what she truly is -a skin-walker. She can run faster, climb higher, and see better than nearly everyone else. Experiencing intense connections with the animals that roam the woods outside her home, Maya knows it's only a matter of time before she's able to Shift and become one of them. And she believes there may be others in her small town with surprising talents.

Now Maya and her friends have been forced to flee from their homes during a forest fire they suspect was deliberately set. Then they're kidnapped, and after a chilling helicopter crash, they find themselves in the Vancouver Island wilderness with nothing but their extraordinary abilities to help them get back home.

In THE CALLING, the sizzling second book in the Darkness Rising trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong pumps up the romance, danger, and suspense that left readers of THE GATHERING clamoring for more.

Week One- 9 chapters, 1-88 pages
Now, straight to the discussion pieces. Enjoy!
So, you know the basic. Their helicopter crashes in the middle of the islands of Vancouver, right? Okay then. The first 9 chapters are just that, it crashes in the first few and now they are trying to survive. And if, which I really hope, you've read the first book you know something isn’t right. So, along these chapters they are trying to put the pieces together of what the hell is going on.
Okay then, let’s start this discussion, shall we? Red is for the questions, purple is for the answers.

           T: Which side would you be on- would you stay on the beach and near the crash where “supposed rescue team” might find you or search in the dark forest for help with people who know the forest like they know the back of their hand?

            A: Me, I would trust my friends, so I would go look for help. Yes, if I was in the position where I didn’t know much about the forest, I would no doubt be scared. However, I think I’d be more scared of the men that were after us.

            A: Do you think the people that are after the kids, actually trying to help them or are they the ones that created them?

            T: I could see either being true. They seem to be trying to hurt them, so it would be a twist for them to try to help. But my money is on them being the ones who created the kids. Just more likely.  

            T: If you found out you were a skin-walker or a demon- hunter, what would you do?

            A: First, if I was either, I would test out these supposedly gift that come with those titles. Just to see if it were real. And then, if the gifts were real, I no doubt I’d be a little uneasy. But since I adore paranormal/otherworldly books, I might come to the decision that this is kinda cool! Going from there, I’d look up more information about my new found gifts.

            A: Do you have any theories for what might be in the water? The things that are so keen on drowning people?

            T: I think it could be another kid that was created. Or it just could be some kind of creature that lived around the island. Whatever it is, it probably be fun to find out.

            T: Do you think Sam will betray the others?

A: No, I think Kelley is just making you think that. In the end, I’m sure she’ll be a good guy. However, I think it would be awesome if she did. Gives the plot a great twist! ^_^

A: Do you think they’ll actually find someone soon or how long do you think Kelley will prolong it?

T: Easy question. About halfway through the book for them to find someone to help them. To find someone who wants to kill them, a lot sooner.
So, there you have it! This was so much fun, I can't wait to continue to read this book and do some more questions next week!
You guys may comment upon it too! Just, I please ask, if you've read it can you try so hard not to spoil it for anyone. Thanks! ^_^
Happy Reading Everybody!
