❰Reading❯ ➿ Wolfsbane Author Andrea Cremer – Kairafanan.co

What in life is worth a sacrifice, if not love Just like the first book this one is written in a way that flows really well, making it easy to read And still it took me soooo long to finish it Why I m not quite sure I liked the story, I liked the twists and turns taking place, I loved the new characters and the magic and still I found myself putting the book aside instead of speeding through it.I have a theory regarding what it might be that kept me from going and I m going to put that behind a spoiler tag because it might be considered a bit spoiler y view spoiler So what I think threw me off with this novel and doesn t make me too excited for the next one is that the love triangle that was hinted at in the first book but also seemed to be finished because Calla chose Seth over Ren is back In full force And I didn t want that and it and the way it was portrayed in this novel felt a bit too ugh Like, I don t dislike love triangles in general Sometimes they work very well for a story But when it went the way as it did in this book, where Calla is basically in love with Seth and then she meets Ren again and immediately starts making out with him yeah, that doesn t work for me hide spoiler Although I have read the first in the series a while back, this one didn t disappoint me at all We understand a lot about Kala s feelings and Shays character as the plot grows It had its twists, action scenes and details regarding the background.3.5 stars Calla Tor Wakes Up In The Lair Of The Searchers, Her Sworn Enemy, And 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 Damn I love the covers of this series Can t wait for it to be released though JULY IS TOO FAR AWAY I hope Ren gets a bit of slack in this novel, I have to say, I love him a lot than Shay.EDIT Ummm what happened to the cover Can anyone enlighten me Or have I just gone crazy I don t like this cover quite as much To be honest she looks a little slutty Is that really meant to be Calla Why does she look like a stripper I mean, she s wearing leather pants On the other hand, I like her hair SECOND EDIT When the cover for wolfsbane was done, they also re vamped cover number one As much as I dislike this cover, I have to say cover number one is amazing Check it out. I admit I was a little terrified to read WOLFSBANE I had no freaking clue of the contents inside this book, but after flipping the first page I could not put the book down It was like I was possessed and if I put the book down I could not stop thinking about it Oh, man Andrea Cremer has done it again WOLFSBANE picks up right where Nightshade left off Calla is now in the searchers hands and being taught all her life that the searchers are the evil ones she is quite un trusting of them Calla finds out just how much lying her beloved Keepers have been doing And Calla decides it is time to get her pack back, it should be really easy, right Well, guess again Nothing is easy in the world of Nightshade.I seriously thought this book has changed so much from Nightshade and in a very good way I wasn t completely in love with the first book to be honest, I mean I liked it and the ending had me guessing while glued to my seat, but Andrea Cremer really stepped it up in WOLFSBANE I think I was completely caught off guard that I didn t expect to be this blown awayStaring at the wreckage of the life we could have had, I knew it wasn t about love or Shay or the Searchers now It was about sacrifice and redemption, loss that could have new meaningWe meet some new characters in WOLFSBANE and I love them to death Great character development I mean we have some really fun and loving characters that you don t ever want to forget And some secrets to be revealed that will blow your socks off.Ren and Shay Ren and Shay Oh, my god I am becoming Team Shay, when the hell did that happen We got to spend time with Shay than Ren in this book and we got to learn about Shay He is very overprotective and jealous in this book I am liking that And I don t know, I have really become conflicted in this book I love both Ren and ShayYeah, she is great I spent the whole week with her Doing what I asked, catching a growl before it left my throat Aw, you re cute when you re jealousI declare WOLFSBANE one of the best YA books of 2011 It deserves it big time Secrets will be revealed, deaths that will make you mourn, steamy hotness between characters and a bloody cliffhanger that will make you go insane I loved this book to death and I think that Andrea Cremer enjoys being evil with all these damn cliffhangers she writes I am highly anticipating the last of the Nightshade Trilogy, Bloodrose, coming February 2012.More of my reviews at Mystifying Paranormal Reviews 3.5 starsIt pains me not to give this book a higher rating because I absolutely loved Nightshade I have to admit that a large part of my problem with the book was Shay If you read my review of Nightshade you know I am not a huge fan of his and he was even worse in this book I can officially say I think he is a douche bag He claims to love Calla and he is supposed to be this savior of them all but he still acts like a spoiled child He pretty much brushes off the fact that Ren put his own life in danger by helping Calla and Shay escape He gets pissed off when Calla won t have sex or admit she loves him while she s mourning leaving her pack behind He also gets uber jealous when she even comments on liking a guy even though he flirts and hangs out with another girl and insists to Calla there is nothing to be jealous of The real kicker for me was when they find out the Nightshades are in trouble and Calla wants to go rescue them where Shay is all for writing them off as casualties of war If he really is supposed to take Ren s place as the alpha of this pack I can t believe he would behave like that even if he s so head over heels over Calla I ve been pretty certain since the first book that Calla will end up with Shay when all is said and done and I just hope something happens in book 3 that redeems Shay.My other issue over this book is that Calla has gone the way of the whiny female heroine who moans and groans over which boy does she really love and gets so caught up in her own love life that she misses totally obvious things like who the Searcher, Monroe, really is I was thinking to myself are you really that clueless I know you have a lot going on but come on I really think the book spent way too much time on Calla s internal debates about Shay vs Ren and the story only really gets going towards the last half or quarter.The ending does really pick up the pace and I did enjoy it possibly because there is not so much Shay time There are a few twists you don t really expect which always makes the reading experience enjoyable Overall, I was sort of let down because I had such high expectations but it wasn t a bad book In fact, if you are a Shay fan you will probably love it.lol. Nightshade and Wolfsbane are like black and white Wolfsbane was full of action but devoid of everything else It went like this infodumpinfodumpinfodumpactioninfodumpinfodumpactioninfodumpactioninfodumpactioninfodumpactionactionactionslight infodumpendThe whole thing was like one giant conversation with a few good action scenes in between I really don t want to say any, because that would just be wasting the time I could be using writing glorious things about the third book.So, like my inside joke with my Nighshade review, From Reno, Nevada, I m Hayden Casey, saying good night Well my fangirl moment came to an end I woke up reading the second book and I was thinking wtf did I see in the first one This is bullsh t Yep Maybe I m having a multiple personality disorder or aliens were controlling my brain and were forcing me to like Nightshade I guess that would be the logical explanation, don t you think In the first book we saw the world from the Keepers and Guardians POV which now is considered the enemy line Now we get to see where the good guys stand If they really are the good guys I find it fascinating either way It s a new universe, new characters and a whole lot of pressure Good stuff so far.The story itself is not bad I mean some things were really cool, like the Searchers, a flying moving teleporting Academy lol WTF , some new characters and the villain which is still not evil enough for me to like him much But these things didn t make up for the stupid teenage drama that was going on I m close to turning 24 soooo I don t have the patience needed to go through sh t like this.Connor is my favorite character, after him comes Silas these two fighting made my day and that s it Or not I guess Adne was good also Shame on you Shay You betrayed my trust so I don t like you any My fangirl hypnotic state is gone I m alive again Get ready to be criticized evil laugh muahahahahahaaaaQuestion Do I really love Shay that much Answer view spoiler Naw, I m just kidding I actually hate his guts Calla s too hide spoiler stop rating this book if you havent read it. Even better than Nightshade I know, how can that be possible but believe me it is D I got this yesterday 25th and finished it today 26 So Bad things first Shay once again IRRITATED me to death Seriously That boy needs to crawl up and die somewhere Alone I do NOT like how he pushes Calla to do things when she can t even think straight poor girl got a lot of stuff happening He s also so annoying and selfish Enough said.I don t know what to think of Calla There are times when I admired her for being strong and confident, but there are several times when I felt like she was weak, and SELFISH That is one thing that Shay and Calla have in common I find her quite selfish, and didn t realize how much her stupid decisions about saving Shay at the end of Nightshade affected her family and pack mates back home She s lucky she s got SOME great friends, cause if I were her I would not forgive her that easily after what the Keepers had done to the rest of her pack mates And for what For Shay Please he is not even worth it.ALSO Where is Ren in this book SPOILER He s only appeared in one tiny scene, which didn t even last long Is this the way that Andrea s telling us that Calla will end up with Shay I HOPE HOPE HOPE Ren would play a MUCH BIGGER part in Bloodrose Or I will die And You ll know who to blame.Now after I got that out of my chest, moving on to the best What shines in both Nightshade and Wolfsbane is the plot It is so amazing and complex and interesting I really enjoyed learning about the history of both the Keepers and the Searchers How Andrea weaved them all together is just so magically done and wow, there are times when I my jaw literally dropped after all the revelations Trust me, you wouldn t see anything coming Or at least, I didn t hehehe While I didn t love the main characters except for Ren TEAM REN FOREVER I did found myself loving the secondary characters much Monroe, Connor, Ethan, Adne and Silas all added something new to the story and I love learning the history and personalities of each one D And I am in love with Connor P SPOILER The pack members reappeared in Wolfsbane aswell, and I am not shocked to see which ones sided with the enemy those that have read it would know what I mean.Overall, I LOVE Wolfsbane And I screamed when the biggest cliffhanger of death appeared in front of me Seriously I am already getting impatient waiting for Bloodrose And we still have 6 months before its publication Sigh.My blog
