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 Rating of this Book –3 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

Wolfsbane was definitely an action packed romance. However, it wasn’t as good as the first book, Nightshade. Though the battles and learning about the Searchers, Keepers, and Ren’s past were intriguing, it wasn’t the same. I really enjoyed, and even missed, the mystery of The War of All Against All from Nightshade. It was more captivating. The other turn off for me about Wolfsbane was all the flashbacks that were taken word for word from the first book. I agree that understanding what has happened is important. I just think it could have been addressed more effectively.

Even so, this is awesome series and I can’t wait to find out what happens in Bloodrose (Nightshade #3).

  1. I still haven’t read the first book in the series yet. However it is in my TBR pile. IMO The second book in series is never as good as the first book in the series. I don’t know why but 99% of the time I feel that way. Hopefully Bloodrose will be better.
