Wolfsbane (Book 2 in the Nightshade Trilogy) by Andrea Cremer

Published by Penguin Group

A review by John Irvin


“The screaming had stopped. The room became still, flooded with silence. I took a couple of painful swallows, trying to moisten my parched mouth. It took me a moment to realize that the screams had been my own, each cry clawing my throat until it was raw.” –Calla

            The Searchers are her pack’s sworn enemies. Calla Tor finds herself in their lair. She knows she’s about to die. But, to her surprise, the Searchers suggest a deal with her.

            Will she take it? It gives her the ability to destroy her former masters and save her pack. There’s a chance she can save the man she left behind too. Would Ren meet her expectations? Is the price of freedom too costly?

            Calla feels like she is in control of her own destiny, but with this comes the choice between which battle is worth fighting. Will Shay stay with her?

            How many times can true love endure a storm and survive?

            Wolfsbane was actually the first book I read in the trilogy. I didn’t known until after I’d already gotten a third of the way into it that it was the sequel. But, with how great the writing was and intense the scenes, only made me want to buy the other two volumes.

            As I stated in the review for the first book, I love werewolves and though Cremer’s type is not exactly my favourite—I still enjoyed their uniqueness.

            What young adult dark fantasy would be complete without the love triangle? But it isn’t the horrible type like Twilight *cough cough.* Sorry to any Twilight fans who read this. Either way, this is a continuation of a story worth reading and possibly rereading. I can’t wait to get the rest of the books set in this world!
