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.Read more ›
Calla is a werewolf. An alpha of her pack. Set to marry Ren, the alpha of his pack. All is going swimmingly. Then Calla saves a human boy because she's good enough to appreciate humans and animals should be of an equal level when it comes to not being massacred by bears and so begins her problem. Did she make the right choice? Is her world with its hierarchy and rules really the right path?
This book had a cool concept. A land of wolves mixed in with the humans but essentially governed by magical leaders. Awesome. Equally, this author writes nicely and kept me interested, even when I began to dislike her characters.
Why did I dislike them? What could possibly be bad about them - they sound badass right? They're so not. Calla is a really boring leading lady. I barely remembered she was a wolf. She is shown to be entirely controlled by the males of Ren's pack, namely Ren, and even her own pack fails to listen to her on most exchanges and fails to ever make any sound decisions or bold moves. Not exactly a strong, feisty heroine. Equally, her mother often comments on the need for female wolves to bow down to their male counterparts - ever the stronger sex. I could have launched this book out of the window at my unsuspecting neighbour; this made me so cross.Read more ›
If you like YA paranormal romance full of action and suspense, then this book is definitely for you.
This is an amazing book which needs to be read! You will love it!
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.
