Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything--including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?
So Calla is a werewolf, Ren is a werewolf and the new boy at school Shay is a question mark. Calla is on her way to an arranged marriage to Ren when she meets Shay. You can't have a YA book without the requisite Love Triangle. Oh and either a vampire, werewolf, fallen angel or zombie. Since this book is about two packs of werewolves, I think that's well covered. Nightshade covers all the bases when it comes to a successful YA novel.
I'm being kind of snarky there, but I just didn't find anything super special about this book. All these YA books are getting to be so similar. Female character that can't make up her mind, The Love Triangle, and the Paranomal Entity (vamp, were, angel, or zombie). I hate to take anything away from the authors because I know they work hard, but let's not all be clones of each other ok? Publishers you hear me? Y'all just as at fault here too.
The thing I loved the most about the book was the makeup on the chick on the cover, and then I read the book and Calla refused to wear makeup. What?? What's up with having a big glam chick on the cover when the character refuses to wear makeup?
Would I recommend reading it? Yeah, just so you know what everyone else is talking about.
