Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she’ll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters’ laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything - including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice? ~ From Goodreads.com
From the start I really enjoyed this book. I was immediately hooked in to the characters and the story. I enjoy all the paranormal stories, and Nightshade was a nice twist on that. Andrea Cremer did an amazing job!
Calla, a Guardian, the female alpha of the teen Nightshades, and a 17 year old girl who is engaged. She is a werewolf, but will growl at you if you call her that. She has a very tough personality, one that you wouldn't want to get in the way of! She has followed the laws the Keepers have given her, and never second guessed them. Then why do things change when Shay comes to town? Calla knows her duties, but can't help but think there's more when Shay uncovers more of the truth.
Then there's Ren, also a Guardian, male alpha of the teen Bane's, and a 17 year old boy who is engaged. He's the type of boy who can get any girl and loves it. He is, for lack of a better word, a player. Ren loves Calla, who he calls Lily, but she doesn't know if she loves him back. Ren dislikes Shay from the beginning. He thinks he's a human who doesn't know his place. Yet, he puts on a smiling face and accepts Shay begrudgingly.
I truly enjoyed this book! It was well written, and the plot made sense. Plus any book is good with a steamy love triangle!!! Instantly I was hooked, and I couldn't put this book down! 49 out of 51 tacos!! Check out Wolfsbane coming out July 26Th!!!
