I was wondering my local Wal-Mart and decided to see what books they had. So, I wandered off to the book section and found Nightshade. I had actually looked up the book the night before to see what it was about and I decided to get it . I immediately started reading after I got home.
This book was very different, but in a good way. I got into this book and couldn’t put it down. After the first day I was half way through the pages and there was a lot of pages in this book. The book had me on my toes because its one of those books where you know something’s going to happen, but you don’t know when.
The main character Calla was very confused on how’s on who she wanted to be with, who she should trust, and started to question everything that she’s ever been told to her about her history. There was a problem for me in this book. I loved it, but I just didn’t connect with her as well as I would have liked to. I mean I had a little of a connection. Quite frankly she became annoying at some points in the book; Some of the things she did was very stupid to me. Also, I really like Ren I connected with him more than Shay. I mean Ren was great even though he had the reputation to be somewhat of a jerk he showed a sweet side to Calla and wasn’t sure how to act around her. Shay was a rebellious, curious human for most part of the book and to me he was the bad boy sort of guy of the story. The pack was great! My favorite were the guys of the pack Mason, Nev., & Ansel. They all had a great personality and were funny for most part of the book.
Aside to all of that I loved it. I mean sure there were connection problems, but it was a great story to me and it kept me engaged and on the edge of my seat. Even though I preferred Ren over Shay I still was pondering the question in my head the whole story Ren or Shay it switched constantly since I tried to give Shay a chance. I will definitely be reading the next book. It was a great YA book to read for a change.
