Nightshade is the intriguing debut novel by International bestselling author, Andrea Cremer. It is the first book in the Nightshade series. Calla is a shape shifting Alpha wolf who has known since she was a child that she is destined to be the mate of Ren, another Alpha. Calla represents a strong female whose dedication to her pack and family is unwavering. After saving the life of a human boy, she triggers events and emotions that make her question things she has known her whole life.
The character building was much like meeting people in real life. As the story unfolds, I felt like I was really getting to know the main characters. Different aspects of their personalities are gradually revealed throughout the story. Just like in real life, first impressions may not always be correct.
The twists and turns in this book, kept me reading chapter after chapter very quickly. Thankfully, there are two more books set to be written in this series plus a companion novel. The next book, Wolfsbane, is scheduled to be released July 26th of this year. I am anxious to read the rest of this series.
