To Be Released: October 19, 2010
5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: “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 master’s 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?”
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer is a fantastically romantic, mysterious, soul searching story that will make you want to read and re-read it over and over again. Clearly this is a series book because what a huge cliff hanger to leave on. I don’t want to give away much about this amazing story, so I will just give you little tidbits I loved about this book.
Things I Loved About Nightshade by Andrea Cremer:
The story was elegantly written
Each chapter begins with a different phase of the moon
Shockingly, beautiful cover art (I mean seriously could you walk past this book in a bookstore and not want to pick it up?)
Ren an alluring alpha whose heart only wants one thing
Shay an adorable love struck puppy
Calla a hard ass alpha who hates dressing like a girlie girl and has only ever known duty to her pack and pack masters
Weird, eerie dynamics at the local high school
A heart being torn in two opposite directions
And a leap of faith
I gave Nightshade by Andrea Cremer 5 smirks because it really is a book everyone must own. There is something in it for everyone, adventure, mystery, romance, lust, knowledge, action. Nightshade truly touches base with every type of genre you could think of. The elegant delivery was swift and magical which is perfect for the story itself. It is the must have book of the year.
