From Goodreads: 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?
There's been so much buzz about Nightshade around the blogosphere that I was honestly a little turned off by it. I thought it was just some cliché, Twilight-like book that was way too long. Seriously, how thick is it, right? Anyway, I was so wrong!! Nightshade is now one of my favorite books! Andrea Cremer wrote a superb novel and it was different and new. I loved her characters and the whole story scheme. It was so good!
Characters like Calla are becoming very common in YA books nowadays but I thought she still had her own thing going on. She's strong but also can submit to her sensitive, feminine side; which I haven't seen in a lot of books. And, oh, the love triangle…I loved it. It kept me entertained and made the book very sexy. I’m a mature teen so I was glad that, unlike most books, the author pretended like teens don’t know a lot about sex. (For anyone who hasn’t read the book, there is NO sex!)
There’s nothing that I didn’t like about this book. I wasn’t annoyed or bothered; which, believe me, is not something that usually happens. Every page held me and I was not disappointed.
