Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

by Andrea Cremer
Pages: 454
Released: June 28, 2011
Summary: Calla is a nightshade, alpha of her pack. She can shift from human to wolf form and has been destined to marry Ren, alpha of the other wolf pack. Calla is ready to live the life that she was destined for until she saves a human boy from dying, Shay. Shay begins showing up in her life and the more she gets to know him the more she bends the laws and questions her fate and the life that she was meant to live.

My Thoughts: A very savory book.

What I liked: It was definitely a fun quick read and I was surprised how I was unable to put down this book because I had to know what was going to happen next. Cremer does a great job creating the world that Calla lives in and the rules that she must abide by. It's a refreshing spin on the supernatural YA genre and the whole Guardian/Keepers/Seekers ordeal was very fascinating.

What I disliked: I did think that things did move a bit fast with Calla and her love interest(s) in the story, but on the other hand it did keep the book fast paced.  

Conclusion: The ending of the book does leave you at a cliff-hanger and I cannot wait to check out Wolfsbane to see what happens to our characters next. If you're looking for a paranormal romance YA, definitely check out this book--you won't be disappointed.

4/5 stars

  2. This is a great review and it made me want to read the book! Since it leaves you on a cliffhanger maybe I should wait until the second one is on its way out! The storyline sounds interesting and I like that it is fast paced.

    Thanks for sharing!
