Author: Andrea Cremer
Novel: Nightshade
Publisher: Atom Books

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?

I can't stress how much I loved this book. For days afterwards I was constantly thing about the characters, the story line and what may happen in the second book (soon to be released).

The reason I enjoyed this book so much was not because of the blossoming romance between Calla and Shay, but because of the wolf pack interactions. I loved reading about how each member of the groups fitting in with the others. They all defended, listened to and trusted Calla, their alpha female, and in return she loved and cared for them in every way she could. She is a sexy, intelligent, and dangerous girl, who falls in love with a human boy despite all her wolf instincts.

I also enjoyed reading about her pack interacting with the other teenage wolf pack, when at school, and in the forest. Cremer shows a great understanding of relationship between people, who are forced together, not through friendship but by greater and more powerful force; the need to survive and to protect the pack.

They are like tight knit family, always in each other faces but always with each other best interest at heart, even when Calla does the unthinkable and falls for the wrong boy.
