The Rising by Kelley Armstrong

Things are getting desperate for Maya and her friends. Hunted by the powerful St. Cloud Cabal and now the Nast Cabal as well, they’re quickly running out of places to hide. And with the whole world thinking they died in a helicopter crash, it’s not like they can just go to the authorities for help.

All they have is the name and number of someone who might be able to give them a few answers. Answers to why they’re so valuable, and why their supernatural powers are getting more and more out of control. Maya is unprepared for the truths that await her, but she’ll have to face them if she ever hopes to move on with her life. Because Maya can’t keep running forever.

With all the twists, thrills, and romance that have made Kelley Armstrong an international bestseller, plus the surprising return of some fan-favorite characters, The Rising will hold you under its spell long after the breathtaking end.

Old secrets are revealed and unexpected characters make a surprising return in this stunning conclusion to Kelley Armstrong's New York Times bestselling Darkness Rising trilogy.


Maya, Daniel and Corey are still on the run and presumed dead by their families and loved ones, while their friends have been captured, along with Rafe. The teens are at a loss and have no one to turn to, the one contact they have will not cooperate, but has passed on their details to another skin walker, who unexpectedly ambushes them. He's sassy and full of in your face attitude, and familiar. 

Maya allows herself to be recaptured to save the others, and finds herself in a secure compound with no means of escaping. She finds an unlikely ally, someone who is willing to risk their position within the company to secure her freedom as a means of bargaining for a future she never thought possible.

They contact the only other group that know what it's like to be on the run, the kids from the former Lyle House, Chloe, Derek, Simon and Victoria. Together they pose strength in numbers to use as a bargaining chip. No one wants to keep running, living in hotels and abandoned houses. Their only option? To take on the corporation and reunite with their parents.

In this the finale of the Darkness Rising series, Kelley Armstrong wrote a complete ending to a well loved series. Readers who have also read the Darkest Powers series, will enjoy seeing the kids from Lyle House months on from leaving the experiment. The ending is quite surprising, but fans of the series will be thrilled with the outcome.
