Book Review: Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Calla Tor is a Guardian, a supernatural being that can shift from human to wolf form. She has always known her destiny: after graduating from the Mountain School, she’ll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren, and fight with him side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers, a society of witches. But her path diverges when she violates her masters’ laws and saves a human boy. Shay, the human boy who is more than he seems, will make Calla question everything she knows and stand by her in a revolt against the Keepers. But will her love for him be worth the ultimate sacrifice?
Nightshade is a fabulous addition to the young adult supernatural genre. The writing is intelligent and the imagery vivid. The plot feels fresh and new, not just another recycled story of werewolves and witches. The characters are instantly likable, especially Calla and Shay. The love triangle between Calla and her two men will have anyone’s heart aching. And the cliff hanger ending will have readers begging for more. Wolfsbane, the second novel in the Nightshade series comes out the end of July 2011.
