Summary from Goodreads;
Calla is the alpha female of a shape-shifting wolf pack. She is destined to marry Ren Laroche, the pack's alpha male. Together, they would rule their pack together, guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But then, Calla saves a beautiful human boy, who captures her heart. Calla begins to question everything - her fate, her existence, and her world and the orders the Keepers have asked her to follow. She will have to make a choice. But will she follow her heart if it means losing everything, including her own life?
*Due to my range on emotions throughout this book and afterwards, this review "deserved" a couple of gifs, lol.
**** 4.5 stars; Enjoyable read, would recommend to some people.
Me throughout most of the book;
Me, frustrated because of the characters and knowing I had to continue because of the writing.
The characters were frustrating to read about but towards the middle of the book you get to know a much deeper side to them and you come to understand them. You also realize why they act how they act. There is a lot of character development but I do wish I'd seen more of Ren.
The ending was completely and utterly fantastic! It's a cliffhanger which made me feel like this;
Nightshade is the first novel in the Nightshade trilogy which I will be continuing due to my curiosity and the beautiful writing.
I recommend this to anyone looking for an action packed novel with beautiful writing and is fast paced.
New cover: I'm a big fan of the first shiny cover but this looks more professional and logical, if that makes any sense. ^__^
