Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

This past February I got the amazing opportunity to go to a super awesome event in Long Beach, CA.  It was called Passion and Prose.

At the event I was not only able to meet my all time favorite author, Meg Cabot, but also DOZENS of other fabulous authors!  It was truly a day to remember for me!

Among those amazing people I had the opportunity to meet Andrea Cremer, the author of the Nightshade Series.  She was super sweet, and signed my copy of Nightshade!

Well, I have FINALLY found the time to read Nightshade, after these past seven or eight months!

Before I give away too much about what happens, I'll give you the Goodreads description, so hopefully I can avoid giving away too much!
Nightshade (Nightshade, #1)

Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything- including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

My thoughts:
This book had so much awesomeness to it!! Like, seriously! There was action, romance, forbidden love, a love triangle, werewolves, drama, humor!  Jeez, what didn't it have?!  It kept me on my toes from beginning until end!  Along the way, I had a hard time putting it down numerous times!  The writing I thoughts was really great, excellent wording, sentences, etc.  There is just so much positivity about this book!

In a way, it reminded me of SO many of my favorites combined!  I felt a bit of Twilight and Mortal Instruments included!  There were no vampires though!!! Promise!! I know how a lot of people are getting sick of them (I'm not, when it comes to Twilight, but I definitely get it! For me it's sort of like that, but with the Dystopian genre).

I highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal, werewolf loving, love triangle, suspense seeking thrill seekers! Even if you're not a fan of paranormal usually, you may be surprised when you pick up Nightshade!
Overall Rating:

Hope every one had a great weekend!!
