Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (ARC)
Publication Date: October 19, 2010
Versions: hardcover, audio
Received from: Around The World Tours

Summary (from goodreads):
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 centeries-old Witches' War that surrounds them all.

I read a lot of werewolf novels, and since this is a werewolf book, I instantly loved it. Calla is the alpha of a pack called the Nightshades, while Ren is the alpha of the other pack. So they are to be mates in the new pack together when halloween comes-the night of the union. But when Calla meets Shay, she can't help thinking of wanting him. But she knows she's destined to be with Ren, so why is her heart telling her to be with Shay?

I really enjoyed the uniqueness of this werewolf book. Including how when they shift, their clothes don't get ripped to shreds. And how they are destined to be together and don't get to pick their own mates. This book had a love triangle between Calla, Ren, and Shay. And let me just tell you that I had a lot of hatred toward Shay-he just bothered me and I could barely stand reading about him. As for Ren, I loved him and everything about him. He is the type of character that is very popular at school and knows what he wants and pushes Calla to get what he wants.

Will I reread it?
Yes, I really did enjoy this book. And hopefully in the (near) future there will be a sequel because Andrea Cremer kind of left a cliff ending. The writing in Nightshade was superb and the characters were relatable to so I definitely recommend picking this book up.
