Fluffy Review - Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Publisher: Philomel
Release Date: 19th October 2010
Genre: Young Adult

Nightshade was a book that I was eager to read as soon as I saw the cover and after reading the description I knew I would love this book. 
The plot hooked me from the beginning and there were many twists and turns, they were totally unexpected and kept me reading from beginning to end.
Calla is a great character and she is strong, she knows what she wants but is torn by her duty as Alpha. You can feel her conflict and it really makes you feel for her and wonder how you would react in the situation.
For Shay and Ren, I am unsure who's side that I want to be on. I am still liking both but each has reasons for me to not choose them. I am hoping to really get to know them better in Wolfsbane so I can pick a side for who I am going to root for. I also loved the pack members and I am really hoping to find out more about them in the upcoming books.
Nightshade is a wonderful new spin on werewolf novels and it is a refreshing change to the vampire theme that seems to be the big thing in YA at the moment. I know there are other werewolf novels already but until now I had avoided them for some reason but this has really changed my mind on the theme and I can't wait to read more. I just hope that they can live up to Nightshade.
