This was one of these books that I couldn’t wait for it to come out and I was NOT disappointed! I so enjoy these stories that are based in mythology of some type and just build and build until it has its own reality. Love love love!
Wolfsbane picked up from where Nightshade left off – which is another aspect of this story that I really like. Nothing worse than trying to figure out where the first book ended and how the one you’re reading now picked up from somewhere 🙂 Definitely not the case here – Nightshade ended with one event and it felt, to me at least, like Wolfsbane picked up right after that event. Perfect!!!
So… where are we? Hmmm…. if you haven’t read NightshadeI’d really hate to ruin the storyline… so.. let’s try to take the vague approach… hmmm… not working… so this will be a plot spoiler for Nightshade 😦 After the big escape, once Calla wakes up – she learns and discovers all the lies about her society, who and what the Guardians really are, who are the Searchers and Keepers – how are they all tied together… Who is Ren? Why are their 2 worlds warring and how does Calla and Shay fit into the big puzzle of saving their homes? With all these questions rolling around, Calla struggles with her decision to leave Ren and her pack, especially when she discovers the truth of what happened after she left. There are so many lies that she’s no longer sure of who she really is and who she really loves.
I really enjoyed this book and series – and yup I can’t wait for the next one 🙂 Cannot wait to see what happened to Ren? Will Shay find the remaining parts of the Scion? Ugh… so many questions and unknowns … January 24, 2012 cannot come soon enough – when Bloodrose, the final book in the Trilogy is released 🙂
Here’s an awesome Youtube clip with Andrea Cremer talking about the Nightshade Series:

“….”It’s cliche because love matters, Silas,” Tess snapped, eyes misting over. “It’s one of the few things on earth that actually makes people take risks.” ” p. 158
