Summary: 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 Thoughts: It took me a few hours to digest this after I was done! Yes, it was that good. I loved every second of it. I honestly didn't think I could finish it as fast as I did. It was over 400 pages long. We meet Calla who is a warrior, an alpha, a girl with a big heart. She is one of my favorite heroines, I was rooting for her the whole time. We get introduced to all the side characters including her brother and her friends aka pack. We are also introduced to Ren. He is the other alpha of his pack. The two packs will be joined together soon with Ren and Calla married to one another. One day Calla is out in the woods and comes upon a human boy. His name is Shay. He is getting attacked by a bear. Calla being as awesome as she is, steps in and saves his life. She turns into a wolf and Shay sees it! Of course this is forbidden and Calla knows she shouldn't have done this. Throughout the book we get to know more about Shay. He's moved to their town with his uncle. As time goes on, Shay and Calla get to know each other and a form bonds. She starts to wonder if her feelings are more but she knows this can't happen, as she's promised to Ren. Time progresses, and there for a little while towards the end, I could see what was coming. We never really know Shay's back-story until it just hits you smack in the face. I saw it coming but it still really alarmed me. There's so much more going on throughout the book though, actual plots, actual problems, and before you notice your done with the book and you just want more!!!!

What can I possibly say? I adored this book. I loved all the characters. There are quite a few of them and you have to get to know each one. Honestly, I like books with love triangles. I don't know why, I just do. I liked Ren because he was an alpha male (literally) and he had a confidence about him that attracted me. Part of me wanted to go up and lay my lips smack on him!!! But I also liked Shay because he was a sweet guy who Calla felt like she could be herself with. I am still torn between both of them.

This book is amazing. I loved it so much. I can't wait until book 2!!!

Overall: Awesome. This is definitely one that deserves more than 5 cupcakes!!!

Cover: Its really beautiful. Love her eyes, and the purple cover. Even love her hair!

What I'd Give It:
Get Nightshade From Amazon
