She can control her pack, but not her heart . . .
'I wanted him to kiss me-wished he could smell the desire that I knew was pouring off me. You can't, Calla. This boy isn't the one for you.'
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: graduation, marriage and then a life leading her pack. But when she defies her masters' laws to save a human boy, she must choose.
Is one boy worth losing everything?
Cremer's debut brings mystery and passion to a journey of self-determination. Calla was raised chaste and pure, destined to unite with high school heartbreaker Ren on their 18th birthday and become the alphas of a shape-shifting wolf pack. She has never questioned the authority the powerful Keepers hold over her kind until she encounters a human hiker and breaks the rules to save his life. Shay was almost convinced the wolf-girl who rescued him was a dream until he meets her at his new school. Pursuing his attraction to Calla, Shay also wants to know what the Keepers are protecting and why he seems to be linked to a prophecy. Drawn to both Ren and Shay, Calla is torn: fulfill the role she was born to and deny herself freedom of choice, or choose her own path and abandon everything and everyone she knows? Good and evil are simply portrayed as Calla sheds her na vet and learns to see past her expectations. Cremer creates a sense of urgency as the pace accelerates, though the well-constructed plot carries readers along to a cliffhanger. Ages 14 up.

Ahh, the first installment. Perfect for the fantasy lovers of today. I was gripped by the avid storytelling and the overall plot. The characters are relatable and extremely likable as you follow their story. Fantastic book from start to finish! Highly recommended! :)
'Nightshade' A Success
Brilliant book! Definitely a must-read for anyone who loves fantasy! Picked it up by chance in the bookstore and bought it because it was on sale. Did not hold high hopes for it but was very surprised! Cannot wait to read the next book!
This book is perfect for fantasy/romance novel lovers. I didn't take a liking to Shay though. Strictly on Reniers side:)
