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 ›
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 ›
I really liked Calla straight away. She's strong, loyal and fierce but within the first few pages we're shown her compassionate side when she saves Shay's life. I liked how she fought with her morals throughout the book, how when it came down to it she was prepared to risk her own life without question, for what she believed.
I must admit to having a kind of `uh-oh' moment towards the beginning of the book when the love triangle between Calla, Ren and Shay started to take shape, and I really disliked Ren, who was cocky, arrogant and domineering. However like everything about this book, Andrea Cremer turned my feelings and presumptions about him completely on their head. There's a scene involving him and Calla in the final chapters, which had me a soppy, weeping mess. Shay on the other hand I adored straight away. The chemistry between the two was everything I want from a fraught and forbidden love and was just oh-so-romantic. I also found the dynamics and characters of the pack members interesting too, with Calla's brother Ansel being a favourite.
What I really loved about Nightshade though was the exquisite world building, where dark forces and ancient magic live alongside humans, unbeknown to them.Read more ›
