"A finely-wrought compelling tale of romance and treachery..."-Cynthia Leitich Smith(New York Times bestselling author of Eternal and Tantalize)

My Review

(Originally Reviewed on Mrs. Papillion aka “The Book Worm”)
Calla is a very determined and stressed out girl. She is destined to marry Ren who is the Sexy Alpha from the Wolfsbane clan. Calla is the Alpha for the Nightshade clan. Since they were born, they’ve been destined to be together, but is that what Calla actually wants now. When she saves a human boy from a bear in the beginning of the book and ends up meeting up back in her school with him, her feelings are becoming stronger for the human boy. She also becomes confused when she is around Ren. Maybe it’s just the wolf in her that loves Ren, and the other side loves the human. She is put through so many tests in this book, and she ends up screwing up a lot. Towards the end of the book, Andrea Cremer threw me off a it…but a good off. I’m so glad on what happened.. and Andrea Cremer left me hanging on the last chapter.  Gotta love cliffhangers.  I’m really excited about this series. Maybe my love for Vampires is finally over, and werewolves are growing on me more. Who knows…but this book proves that Werewolves are more of a fascination right now and I look forward to learning more about Calla and her world.
