Review: Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

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.

My Review:

Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer was absolutely phenomenal. Where Nightshade was more about the romance, Wolfsbane was more about finding the truth and the war. Now I’m going to admit that at first I was disappointed that Wolfsbane was not like Nightshade. Wolfsbane was full of action but there was barely enough romance like the first book had. It worked out though because while I do like romance I also like books that have intense action scenes and that's exactly what I got. 
Now Wolfsbane picks up right where Nightshade left off, well more precisely a week later. When Calla wakes we are introduced to new characters. The new characters are all Searchers and they Monroe, Connor, Ethan, Tess, Isaac, Silas, Adne, and Lydia. I love every single new character, even if some of them did have a tendency to being a know-it-all and obnoxious. In this book the Searchers prove that they are brave souls and will risk it all if it means peace will exist. 
Gosh. After finishing this book five days ago I still don’t know how to put my words together to form a great review. All I can think about is how riveting Wolfsbane is. Seriously this book is 400 pages long and normally it takes a week or two to finish a 400 page book. Not with this book though. It took me two or three days to read and complete Wolfsbane. Now that should tell you something. 
This book has it all literally! I was feeling every emotion from happiness to despair. I was hanging on for dear life reading Calla’s story. Andrea Cremer has done it again creating a beautiful masterpiece of a book. Andrea knows how to get right into the core of one’s heart with her writings, and take them on a journey that will leave the reader feeling like they came out with something valuable. 
Now I’m left with wanting and waiting for the day that I can get my hands on Bloodrose. I need to find out how it all ends as soon as possible. That cliffhanger at the end is going to make the wait that much more unbearable. I highly recommend Wolfsbane for those who have already read Nightshade. For those who have yet to read Andrea’s books what are you waiting for? The Nightshade series are the best!
