Remembering. Forgetting. I'm not sure which is worse.
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.

Before I really get into my review, I am going to try to sum up all of the information we receive in this book.
So basically... (view spoiler)
I loved this book. I really liked page 188-189. Maya goes through such a revelation that I found myself questioning whether or not I do what she did.
However, I think that it might have been a little too much to put in one book. The first book was semi-predictable and non-eventful, but the second one left my head spinning, almost to a nausea state. I also thought that nothing really happened besides them finding out all this information. The second book felt like an info-dump, really.
Overall, can't wait to read the third!
