Summary: (from goodreads) When Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemies, she's certain her days are numbered. But then the Searchers make her an offer, one that gives her the chance to destroy her former masters and save the pack and the man she left behind. Is Ren worth the price of her freedom? And will Shay stand by her side no matter what? Now in control of her own destiny, Calla must decide which battles are worth fighting and how many trials true love can endure and still survive.

Wolfsbane was given to me by my secret Santa…..Yara. Again she came through and snagged me a signed copy for me, which was my favorite Christmas gift this year, just don’t tell my husband. Thanks girl! Now on with the review! Wolfsbane picks up right where Nightshade finished. In this book we get to meet new characters and we get to learn more about the history of the Guardians, Keepers and searchers.

When Calla wakes up, she finds herself alone and in a strange place and with the last people she expected to be with, the Searchers. She is soon reunited with Shay and after hearing the Keeper’s true history, she is given the choice to fight with them against the Keepers and in return save her pack. Although she was taught that the Keepers were the good guys, the Searchers are now telling her otherwise and the story seems pretty convincing. Calla has always been a strong alpha and is feeling guilty for leaving her pack behind which is something she would have never thought about doing until Shay’s life depended on it. Calla is also being torn between the destiny she has always known to be her and the love she is feeling for Shay. She is also feeling guilty for leaving Ren and her pack behind at the Keepers mercy knowing that they would be harmed because of her decision to run away with Shay. So now Calla, Shay and some funny and friendly Searchers put their lives in danger to help Calla save her pack and gather some Guardian recruits to help them fight in this war.

Wolfsbane was just as good as Nightshade and did not disappoint. It was packed with romance, drama and even comedy. I truly enjoyed some of the new characters. I do not feel that Wolfsbane should be read as a standalone and should be read right after reading Nightshade. Andrea Cremer truly brought all of these characters to life in Wolfsbane and I am sure that Bloodrose will be just as good if not, even better.


  1. I'm wondering what your going to say about Bloodrose!

  2. Aaah I should really pick up Nightshade. I keep seeing it around though the reviews seem really mixed.

  3. I bet these books would be really good to read one after the other after the other. That's what I did with these first two although I still haven't gotten Bloodrose. I hope I can remember all of the characters and mythology when I do get to that conclusion.
