Synopsis

Strange things are happening in Maya's tiny Vancouver Island town. First, her friend Serena, the captain of the swim team, drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. Then, one year later, mountain lions are spotted rather frequently around Maya's home—and her reactions to them are somewhat . . . unexpected. Her best friend, Daniel, has also been experiencing unexplainable premonitions about certain people and situations.

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.

That story begins with Sea of Shadows.Armstrong's first works for teens were the New York Times bestselling Darkest Powers and Darkness Rising trilogies.

Wicked Awesome Books

I haven't read any of Kelley's books before either and I was too sure if I could read this without having read the Darkest Powers series.
