When Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemies, 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.
Nightshade had me waiting eagerly for Wolfsbane. A whole year of me waiting to know what's going to happen to Calla, Shay and Ren.
From the title you can see that this book is about werewolves. Yay. I read Nightshade and I loved it. It was one of my favourite in 2010. I wont compare Wolfsbane to Nightshade because both were equally great.
From where should I start?
Calla: she is more defined and a clear to me in this book. She is the epitome of courage and leadership (duh, she is the alpha of her pack). I loved her in this book more. I just thought what she "did" in Nightshade was selfish. But in Wolfsbane I understood why she "did" that.
Shay: is less annoying in this book. I hate Shay in Nightshade. He was so annoying. But somehow he is so mature in this book. So nice and patient. I am still team Ren though.
Ren: we don’t get to see him often in that book. Me is sad.
The pacing of this book was so quick. Maybe it was the good writing that made me wanting to know more. There was lots of action, adventure.
Basically, Wolfsbane is full of the packs' history and it was more like a transition book from Nightshade to Bloodrose. But an interesting one.
It was a really great book and it lived up to Nightshade. Now I'm dying to know what happens next.
