When Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemies, 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.
Finally! The sequel of one of the book that stole me some really precious hours of sleep. As much as I really enjoyed this book, believe me I did, I didn’t love it as much as Nightshade. I just missed the strong Calla in this book. She seems to be falling apart, which is understandable. After all, everything she believed in is a lie, and her heart is torn between to guys.
The world is probably what made me fall in love with this book. It is so captivating and interesting. I love how we learn more about the history of the Guardians, Keepers and Searchers in this book. So many things were made cleared through all the information Calla learns.
With all the new characters being introduced in this book, I found myself really liking the new ones and less the old ones. I was disappointed in some of them, which made ma want to punch them (I’m slightly violent in my head with characters, but never in real life.) There were some death, which made me sad even thought it may not have been the death of a major character. The other thing that got on my nerves in this book was the love triangle, simply because I now prefer Ren, and I wish I could have seen him more. Even is Shay is not as bad as in the first with Calla, there just something annoying me in his personality. He is too much of a goody-two-shoes.
I still really adore this series. Wolfsbane wasn’t as good as Nightshade, but it is rare that a sequel in a trilogy is the best of the series. I have to say that I simply can’t wait for Bloodrose, the third book in the Nightshade series!
