5.0 out of 5 stars Witches War book 1 30 Dec 2010
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Calla is a Guardian (werewolf) and has always known that it is her destiny to mate with Ren and form a new pack. They will then fulfill their role of protecting the Keepers (magic users) from the Seekers (their sworn enemies). The world she lives in is dictated by the Keepers, their word is law and they are the ones who make the decisions about everything - the Guardian's have no say in their own destiny but that is the way it has always been so it is never questioned. When Calla comes across a hiker who is being attacked by a bear she knows it is forbidden to save him but she goes against everything she knows she should do and risks her life to protect him. Nothing will ever be the same for her again and she will be forced to question everything she has ever been told.

First of all I have to say how much I loved Nightshade, this was a must read book for me & one I would highly recommend. I was captured from the very first page and drawn so far into the story that I didn't want to stop reading for anything - I just had to know what would happen next. I still can't quite believe that this was a debut novel and I can't wait to read more from Andrea Cremer in the future. The world she has created is complex and interesting, it may not be a comfortable one - in fact it is a harsh world with extreme punishments for any Guardian who dares to question the Keepers - but it is one that draws you in completely and leaves you wanting more.

Calla is everything I like in a heroine, she is smart, strong, loyal and brave - everything you'd expect from an alpha. As the alpha of the young Nightshade pack it is her duty to mate with Ren (the alpha of the young Bane pack) and between them they will form a new pack who will help to protect the Keepers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nightshade-best book ever! 7 Jan 2011
By Jones
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read all the Twilight and Vampire Diaries books, but a book about Werewolves? One things for sure is this was an excelent book; not just excelent but AMAZING! It is all about a werewolf/girl named Calla who is meant to be leader of a new pack with another alfa, Ren. One day a new boy comes to school and starts to intriuge Calla. I'm going to stop here because I don't want to give too much of it away as it is such a wonderful book that needs to be read with your own eyes. I was so suprised to hear that the author, Andrea Cremer is a new writer and this is her first book! I guess the only downside is that I have to wait till June for the next one to come out!
This is an amazing book which needs to be read! You will love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars fantastic start 7 Feb 2011
By Sian Louise VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
to a new paranormal series.

It started off a little slow but by about hundred pages or so I was totally engrossed. In fact I was so engrossed in the book, I started it last night, worked all day today and finished it tonight :)
This is a new spin to werewolves and their packs.

I really like Calla she was a very strong female character and totally "alpha". However she did get a bit annoying, I did want to shake her a few times and tell her to make her mind up about what boy she actually wanted to be with. I didnt like Ren throughout most of the book but then he changed towards the end, showed some vunerability and so I actually felt bad for him. Shay was the best though, absolultely loved him, a comic book geek but a very strong character, and definately "alpha" material.

I loved the secondary characters of the Nightshade pack and I hope to have a lot more from them in the future.

The ending was a total cliffhanger tho, which is sooo annoying! and definately designed to make you pre-order the next book lol which I will do in a minute if its available to order :)

If you love paranormal romances then this is definately for you. Besides Kresley Cole books, I dont really read much to do with werewolves and usually prefer vampires, however these werewolves rock!
I will definately be reading the next one and more of Andrea Cremer's work in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nightshade 18 Jan 2011
By Dot
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer is a young adult fiction book that I will think will appeal to many readers upon publication next week.
The book has a huge mythological element to it, centered around the main character Calla Tor. There is a very strict hierarchy in Calla's world; she is a Guardian which means she is a wolf, her packs job is to protect the Keepers who are in charge of pretty much everyone and are not to be messed with.
Calla has the extra burden of being the alpha female of her pack, the Nightshades. She has always known that it will fall to her to make a union with Ren who is the alpha male of the Bane pack of wolves. Calla had accepted her future destiny and then Shay comes along, he is a human whose life Calla saved rather than going with her natural instinct to kill.
Ren and Shay both want Calla and it is easy to see why she is torn between the two as they are both good, neither is the villain. Andrea Cremer really does build up the tension between these three characters, it definitely keeps you turning the pages.
Nightshade leaves you on the edge of your seat at the very end, to find out what happens next we will have to wait for the second book, Wolfsbane which will be out in 2011, I think this is set to be a very exciting series.
