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. Excerpt from Andrea’s website.
Nightshade is not your typical werewolf story and I loved it!! I loved the world that Andrea created between the Keepers and the Guardians. Andrea’s characters are also very lovable. I love Shay and Ren each have their own faults but they are both perfect and it’s hard to just pick one.
I like how Andrea mixed wolf and witch lore together to create a unique series. Andrea has created secondary characters personality that I have no idea who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. I think I may know but everything seems to take way different twists and turns that I’m only like 5% sure I know.
I love the tension that surrounds all the little love birds in the series. There is so much love to go around it is crazy! Everyone is falling in love with someone of the pack even though they know they could have their hearts broken and have to mate with another. It makes me sad. I hope Andrea keeps all her love birds together. I can’t wait to read Wolfsbane.
