CAPTURED BY THE ENEMY SHE MUST DECIDE:
Friend or Foe, truth or denial, freedom or destiny.
But time is running out, and lives are on the line….
Does she have what it takes to save her pack, and herself?
It’s been so long since I’ve read Nightshade and I can’t remember much of the events that has led up to Calla’s circumstances. Nevertheless I soldiered on.
In the midst of the searchers lair, Calla begins to learn that her sworn enemies are not enemies at all, and that all she knew to be true about her life and identity is a farce. Agreeing to an uneasy alliance, Calla is determined to rescue her pack and do all she can to help Shay, the Scion, defeat Bosque Mar once and for all.
I love and admire Calla’s loyalty and dedication to her pack. And I can appreciate her trying to reconcile this loyalty with her love for Shay, but her wishy washiness got on my nerves. I was heartbroken for her brother Ansel. What they did to him was cruel, but I enjoyed getting to revisit with him and getting to know all the new characters introduced. The searchers all seem to be good people with the best of intentions.
As Calla wrests with her past, she tries to determine what and who she wants for her future. While I think she made her decision long ago, it seems she has yet to realize it.
Overall this was a pretty good follow up. Lots of great action and nail biting moments. Now on to book three!
