Review # 49: Nightshade: Book 1 by Andrea Cremer

      Calla is an Alpha Guardian, (a kind of werewolf), who accidentally reveals her furred-form while saving a human from a bear attack. Hoping to get past her mistake, she goes back to life as normal, sticking with her plans to graduate high school, marry another Alpha Guardian (Ren), and blend their packs. That is, until the same human, Shay Dorian, shows up at her school and starts asking questions. Calla tries to avoid him, but her feelings towards him are changing. Will she stick with what she's planned all her life? Or risk everything for a human who is forbidden to know the truth?
     I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series! I was originally skeptical about this book, but a friend told me it was excellent so I decided to try it out. Totally glad I did, because it was one hell of a read. Had romance, love triangles, a strong female lead, action, allure, envy, evil, and a little bit of violence. The characters needed a little bit of work, but the plot-line was fresh and kept me wanting to read more. Can't wait until Wolfsbane! Would recommend to anyone who's "hungry like the wolf" for fiction or really gets into their werewolf myths.

Rating: Bounty's Out (3.5/5)

*** I checked this book out of The Harford County Public Library in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
