“This thrilling sequel to the much-talked-about Nightshade begins just where it ended-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.”

 Alright, as I am writing this review I am bursting at the seams of my soul. This is book is nothing but pure awesomeness! I mean, every turn of the page, every new word describing the scene, every character, and every place left me in awe.
So I don’t want to ruin this book for everyone but I do want to make sure you are so excited about this book that will go buy it the days it comes out.  First off, amazing story line. The story line is jammed pack with such great action, detailing, and pure entertainment, that you don’t want to put it down…ever. As the reader, we are immediately sucked into the Nightshade world drowning in the words across a great field of good writing. You yourself, fall into the story and are the characters. Your heart races, when theirs does. You fill with anger when they do. You soar to the different places when they do. And you fight with them with every breath that you take.
Secrets. It’s no secret that I love them like I love potato chips. Secrets are spilled left and right. So much so that you are taken back by surprise. I mean some of them made sense but other just punched you in the stomach. Secrets in this book rock. Secrets in this book break your heart. And secrets in this books make you gasp.
 Action. There was so much action in this book that I was literally bouncing in my seat while reading this book. I could not get my foot to stop fidgeting, that’s how excited I was. I also almost fell off my chair since I kept moving in it that I hadn’t realized that I move to far from the edge. LOL, but I caught myself like the wolf  that I became in this story and read on.
Wolfsbane is a great non-stop action sequel. I really enjoyed getting into the story and seeing the characters grow. Filled with loads of action, betrayal, and love, you’ll most definitely want to pick up this book. It’s out now, so what are you waiting for! Go get it!!
I give it 5 BITES!
Happy Reading!
Special thanks for Jen from I Read Banned Books for the Book Tour!

    I’m so glad you like it! When I first learned about the sequel I worried it wouldn’t be as good as Nightshade but it seems I don’t need to worry. 🙂

  8. Oh I really enjoyed this one too! My only complaint? THE ENDING! I hate cliffies. Oh, but I did enjoy the story up until then. lol

    So glad you liked this. I’m getting it Friday at Andrea Cremer’s book signing. You mention that it’s non-stop action. So it must have felt very different from Nightshade. Because it took me forever to get into Nightshade. It was so slow at the start. I actually put it down for a few weeks. Luckily, I picked it up and fell in love once things got going.

  12. I’ve seen a good few negative reviews of this, but your enthusiasm keeps me intrigued! Great thoughts 🙂
