Book Review: Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

7263429Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemy, and 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.

 

 

Jumping into book 2 of the Nightshade series, I was thrilled to see that it started exactly where book 1 let off. I hate when books have an unaccounted time lapse and this did not, so well done Mrs. Cremer!  And with that, the book had great flow and was adventurous and captivating.

Trusting that the people she was bred to hate would be her and her pack’s savior.  Calla continues her journey towards freedom from a life she can’t go back to. Bumps in the road, betrayals and heartbreaks lead her closer to the goal, yet she begins to feel like she’s going backwards and not forwards. Among the continuing storyline is an undercurrent of a love triangle, one where she must continue to chose between loyalty to her pack or to her heart.

The continuing character development worked well for all the players and the dialogue and descriptions fit the story perfectly. I had a hard time putting the book down!  Book 1 was a little slow and long, but this book was quick and just the write length.

I give this book 4 bards!

Book Review: Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer

8130839But now that the final battle is upon her, there’s more at stake than fighting. There’s saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay’s wrath. There’s keeping Ansel safe, even if he’s been branded a traitor. There’s proving herself as the pack’s alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers’ magic once and for all. And then there’s deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is. In this remarkable final installment of the Nightshade trilogy, international bestselling author Andrea Cremer crafts a dynamic novel with twists and turns that will keep you breathless until its final pages.

Wow, that was a long book! It was pretty good, consistent with the first two books, but it dragged on longer than it should have. It is so hard to write a review for a book in a series that I have already reviewed. If you want to see my reviews for Nightshade (Book 1) click here and for Wolfsbane (Book 2) click here. Everything seemed to wrap up together nicely and I didn’t feel like things built up to a tragically short ending. The characters kept pulling me in with their developments and achievements and yes, I cried when some were lost.

I got to say though, the ending through me for a loop. Not in a bad way, but in a different way. I won’t give anything away, but it was definitely a change from the normal. The ending also left all the characters at a good place, but also a place where the series could continue in a different direction if the author chooses.  Just to give you a little something to look forward to, I will mention the two gay teen werewolves scuba diving and chasing turtles.  And that is part of the reason I like this series.
