I very much liked this book. The characters were great, and the plot was kind of awesome. I just wished there were more love in the book. I am hoping there will be more between Maya and Rafe in the next books, though :) Am wishing it won't turn into a love triangle. Although I don't think so.
I liked Maya in this book. I didn't love her, because she had a few faults, but she was also very kickass. Loved the park they lived in, and all the animals they saved. And I really, really liked Rafe. Just wished Maya had liked him a little more, too ;)
The Gathering left too many things unsolved, but that only makes me want the sequel even more. Can't wait for The Calling :)
You really should read this book, because it is amazing.
