Review: Nightshade

Series: Nightshade #1
Author: Andrea Cremer

Date Finished: January 13th, 2011

Summary of Book:
While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies’ throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth-birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack's world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches' War that surrounds them all.

Isn't the cover A-M-A-Z-I-N-G? Wolfsbane has an awesome cover too. Look ------->>>
Anyways...Lets start off with what I thought of the characters.

Calla was a great name for a character. I don't think I've ever even read a book that the main character's name was Calla. It's original and still unique!
I think Calla and I have a lot in common. Mostly the same strong-headedness. We're both stubborn. She's protective, as I am. And I find it encouraging to read about someone that would be make the same choices as I would.

Ren is a pain if I ever saw one. In this case, if I ever "read" one. He's jealous of Shay, rude to others and yet, every girl swoons for him *cough, Katie, cough ;)*. No one can resist him..Except for Calla.

Shay is sweet and funny. Calla saved him, because you could almost say it was "love at first sight", although he was in pain and couldn't tell the difference if she was anything. But she changed into a human right in front of him and that totally got his attention. I mean, he even thought it was a dream!

All of Cremer's character names are different and unique. And I don't think that any of the names could be changed and still have a good book. And I think this is the very first werewolf book I've read that I am actually eager to read Wolfsbane. It's thrilling and a page-turner. If you don't read it, your missing out.

Together they will be pack leaders over the next generation of wolves, called the Guardians.
