Nightshade by: Andrea Cremer Review

Description via Goodreads:
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?

My Review: 

Oh where to begin ah yes, Calla has everything in order of how her life will be.  She knows she will be matched and mated to Ren, they will hunt together and combine their packs together.  She will graduate high school.  But what she didn't count on was Shay, the boy from the woods that she saved.  Then she hears from her keeper Logan that she has to keep Shay safe for what price only Calla will know.  Shay breaks every rule set forth.  He falls in love with Calla, teaches her what is really going on with the Keepers and Searchers.  Calla starts to break every rule she knows.  In the end she sacrifices her own life for her pack, and for Shay.
This was a great book, you meet both packs see how they interact you also learn alot about Calla and her fierce loyalty.  When new things happen to her she has a quick response to how to fix things.  I can't wait to see what happens next to her.  Definitely a fab. series to follow.  The book also has a great spin on werewolves.  Not your typical shed the clothing situation.  Which is interesting as most werewolves would dump too much money on clothing costs alone.  I wish she had confided more in her brother but I'm sure that would play against Calla.  Keep up the great story telling!
