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.

First thing I liked about Wolfsbane, it picks up right after Nightshade ended. I hate when sequels pick up like a month later and don't describe any in-between matters. Secondly, since I never liked the Keepers from the beginning of Nightshade (they're just eerie),

so I was happy that Calla and Shay ran away from them after finding out the real truth about them. Wolfsbane definitely starts to show the effects that the climax in Nightshade had on the whole pack and everyone back in Vail. There are so many dramatic twists and turns in this book. There had to be at least three or four times that I experienced a jaw-dropping moment.

In my opinion, Wolfsbane was more of a filler, but then again she didn't go overly into detail of what happened in Nightshade. Cremer gave you just enough detail to make you remember what happened in the first book. It was an action-filled thriller, for lack of a better term. When Cremer introduces all the new characters, you automatically begin to love them. Many of the new characters we meet, which are mostly Searchers, are more laid back and not as serious/creepy as the Keepers are. The book has more humor than you would imagine, and I'm kind of glad it wasn't as serious as Nightshade was. Definitely a 5 tree kind of book (:
