Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

imageThis thrilling sequel to the much-talked-about Nightshade begins just where it ended.Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemy, and she's certain her days are numbered. But then the Searchers make her an offer,one that gives her the chance to destroy her former masters and save the pack and the man she left behind. Is Ren worth the price of her freedom? And will Shay stand by her side no matter what? Now in control of her own destiny, Calla must decide which battles are worth fighting and how many trials true love can endure and still survive.

The Nightshade series is another series that has received a bunch of mixed reviews. I’m personally not a huge paranormal fan, but this series is one of my favorites. Wolfsbane is the second book in the thrilling series by Andrea Cremer.

Wolfsbane sucked me in from the start of the novel until I turned the very last page. I didn’t want it to end, and even tried reading the novel slowly to try and prolong reading it. Cremer has a way of writing that sounds lyrical while still sounding sharp enough to keep you on the edge of your sear. Calla is a kick-butt heroine who I would love to be friends with in real life. I loved how she tried to take charge of situations and how determined she was to get what she wanted.

My only huge problem with Wolfsbane was Shay. I loved Shay in the first book. I still like him a lot, because I’ve never been much of a Ren person. I didn’t like how annoying and possessive he was in this novel. It was so annoying every time he came into the scene and started acting clingy and trying to control Calla.

As for comparing Wolfsbane to Nightshade, I think that Wolfsbane is just as amazing as its predecessor. The two released books in this series match up perfectly to form an unbeatable paranormal series. The characters nearly always continue improving upon their lives. You can trust Cremer to give you exciting twists and turns throughout her novels.

Andrea Cremer wrote a thrilling, addicting, and completely irresistible book that I really hope you will read and enjoy.

I'm not a huge fan of Nightshade, I liked it enough to want to buy the second book. But I did love how Andrea wrote her characters, so I'm hoping to get a surprise with Wolfsbane, since it's a really nice and original plot.

And I'm not a Ren person either ;)

I love this series too! Ya, Shay was a tad jealous here, but look at his competition! I did like this new skills, can't wait to see him kick some butt :D
