Summary: Maya and her friends--all of whom have supernatural powers--have been kidnapped after fleeing from a forest fire they suspect was deliberately set, and after a terrifying helicopter crash they find themselves pursued by evildoers in the Vancouver Island wilderness.
Review: I didn't realize it while reading the first book, but the Darkness Rising trilogy is very similar to Virals by Kathy Reich. They both take place in Canada, have main characters who can shape-shift, takes place on an island that is run by a company and everybody works at the labs, both main characters are really good with animals. I miss the Darkest Powers books; those were amazing. Apparently Maya will meet up with Chloe and Derek in the next Darkness Rising book. (This is just here-say, mind you) If it's true... !!!!!!!!!!!!! :) I've seen some Team Daniel/Team Rafe things, which annoys me to no end. You can only have teams for romantic interests if the point of the book is which guy the girl is going to choose. (Thank goodness that wasn't the case here) Also, there is no competition between Rafe and Daniel. Maya is in love with Rafe, and Daniel is just her best friend. Just because the main character is close to two guys doesn't mean she's interested in both of them!
