After Reading: Wolfsbane
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.
Okay, so I really loved the first book in this series (my review of Nightshade here), and was eagerly anticipating reading the sequel. And it was all the things I loved about the first book, and then some. A great heroine who is conflicted but strong, fun and interesting (and not to mention attractive) male characters, and lots of intrigue and snappy dialogue. My only problem? I really wish I had re-read Nightshade before digging into this one. There were a lot of things I'd forgotten along the way, and it would have made things a million times easier had I had the change to go back and read it to remember the myriad of intricate details Cremer has woven into her world. But, I feel all caught up now, and Bloodrose comes out in a little over a month! Woot!
Also, to tag this on, I entered the MeeGenious picture book contest on a whim (I had a story from a long time ago that I figured I should do SOMETHING with :) and it's up here. Please go vote for me--it's super simple!
