Waiting on Wednesday: The Gathering Dark by Christine Johnson

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that we are anxiously awaiting is THE GATHERING DARK by Christine Johnson.  THE GATHERING DARK releases on February 12, 2013 from Simon Pulse.

A mysterious teen boy knows the secrets of Keira’s dangerous hallucinations in this gripping romantic fantasy from the author of Claire de Lune.Keira’s hallucinating. First it’s a door hovering above the road; then it’s a tree in her living room. But with her parents fighting and her best friend not speaking to her, Keira can’t tell anyone about her breakdown.

Until she meets Walker. They have an electric connection, and somehow he can see the same shadowy images plaguing Keira.

But trusting Walker may be more dangerous than Keira could have ever imagined. The more she confides in him, the more intense—and frightening—her visions become. Because Walker is not what he appears to be. And neither are her visions.
I was first drawn to this book because I thought the cover was gorgeous!  And you have to admit, it really is!  But then the blurb (although somewhat vague) sealed my fate!  I  have to admit, I'm most interested in Walker's secret...what he is and what the visions have to do with him.  But the strange hallucinations do have their appeal, too.  I haven't read many books where hallucinations or visions are the focus of the story.  Most paranormal books have them in one way or the other, but they are usually small in regards to the plot.  So, I'm sure this will be different and very interesting!  Can't wait!
