Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

Book Summer (Via Goodreads): 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. 

Book Review:
I was very eager to start this book, as I thoroughly enjoyed Nightshade. Sad to say, I was rather disappointed. I almost stopped reading it altogether. Several reviews I read on goodreads had mentioned that the book starts off slow, but then gets better towards the end. So, I stuck it out and sure enough, about halfway through the book, I started to enjoy the story more. Still, it wasn't enough to give this book anything higher than a 3. The constant banter between the searchers grew annoying, fast. Also, I found the manor in which the searchers information and history was presented to be rather confusing. Shay and Calla's relationship grew weary on me. I am more interested in what will happen with her and Ren. I guess overall, I had this sense of unease during the first half of the book. I did enjoy the story once Calla was reunited with her pack. It brought back a sense of comfort and belonging. Admittedly, I did enjoy the searchers a bit more towards the end. Perhaps because Calla is more at ease around them. All in all, the next book will determine if I continue on with this series or not.

Favorite Quote:
“Staring at the wreckage of the life we could have had, I knew it wasn't about love or Shay or the Searchers now. It was about sacrifice and redemption, loss that could have new meaning.” 

Cover Art Commentary:
Sadly, I really dislike the new covers. I really loved the Nightshade cover and the old Wolfsbane cover.



  1. Sorry this didn't rock and I agree on the liking the other covers better.

  2. I would have liked to have seen more of Ren since I'm a bigger Ren fan than Shay's.

  3. I am not a fan of Shay and Calla's relationship either. Her and Ren better end up together!!

  4. :( Sorry you didn't like this book!

    I thought Nightshade was ok, but if this book is "worse" I might put off reading it for a while.

    Team Ren btw! ;)
