Review: Wolfsbane

Summary: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

Review: The Nightshade books are wildly popular and well liked my many, so I know this review is going to come as a bit of a shock to some. I have to see I'm not really a HUGE fan of these books like most people appear to be. While I do own the first book, I bought it only because I was at a book signing that Andrea was signing at and decided well why not? I waited quite some time for this book from the library, there were a lot of holds on it before me. When I finally got it  I had some trouble reading through it. I considered putting it aside and starting another book and coming back to it, but I endured. I found the book to be really boring, with the most action coming pretty late in the book. So late in fact that had I quit when I wanted to I would have been nowhere near this part. When a book starts introducing a whole bunch of new people really quickly, I can't keep track of them and I get confused and stop paying attention. Which is what happened here with Connor, Ethan, Adne, Anika and so on. I would have liked to see more of Ren and less of Shay i'm tired of him. Now I know this has nothing to do with the book, but I was really upset when the cover was changed from the original cover to the one it is now. Especially when a lot of fans were saying they didn't like it and the change still stuck. Too slow a read, I don't think I would recommend it.

2/5 stars: it was ok


  1. So sorry to hear the series isn't for you. But that's okay, there are loads of other books on the shelves. :) Thanks for the honest review.

  2. I wanted to like it I really did! But you're right, there are others out there!
