Book review: Nightshade By Andrea Cremer

Title: Nightshade

Author: Andrea Cremer

Genre: Young adult
My rating

On the cover:
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.

My review:

The book is about calla who was born to be pack leader and the charismatic boy Ren has also been appointed as her betrothed. Together they will be pack leaders over the next generation of wolves, called the Guardians. But when Calla rescues an ordinary boy, it is changing her life forever and she begins to question her feelings for both the boy, Ren and her own role as a leader. What is best for the pack? This book is the first in a series. Right now it is clear that there will be three books, but who knows it might get more? The book is really exciting all the way through and Calla are actually a really interesting character. She is a strong and charismatic personality and she has a lot of fight in her. A true warrior. The book explores friendship, love and loyalty. And who is the real enemy? Something that seemed obvious throughout her life is no longer obvious, now Calla no longer know who she can trust.
