First review ever! This book is okayish. There were some things that really pissed me off. 2, to be exact.

First: Shay. Shay is possibly the stupidest love interest in the history of stupid, annoying love inerests. He reags on Calla about how she shouldn't let Ren (her future mate) walk all over her and tell her what to do. Then, only a scant few chapters later, Shay gets into a fight with Ren over Calla! Plus, he makes her do things that she could get killed for. Example:

Shay: "Open the forbidden book, Calla."
Calla: "But I could get killed for opening the forbidden book. It's forbidden!"
Shay: Open the book!"
Calla: *whimpers* "But..."
Shay: "Just open the damn book!!!!!!!!"
Calla: "Fine." *opens book* "Can we make out now?"

Gentlemanly, no?

Second: Calla. Calla is the most stupid, annoying, bratty, helpless heroine ever. She says that she is a strong alpha female that loves a good fight.
But, Calla doesn't do anything productive or remotley leader-like throughout this whole book. She whines the whole time about how she isn't allowed to screw around with Ren before 'the union' in which they blend their two packs together. Ren, (suprise suprise) really wants to screw around with Calla *gasp!* BEFORE THE UNION!!! Calla makes some very very dim-witted decisions in this book, and will probably continue to make the same dim-witted mistakes in the rest of the books (because, this being YA, of course it's a series!) Instead of starting fights, or ending them, Calla decides to spend the whole 400-something pages trying to break up fights between Ren and Shay. The operative word being trying.

All that said, there are some things I liked: Ren, Mason, and Nev. Ren is an alpha male and super sexy. You can tell that he really has feelings for Calla (although why is a mystery). He's funny sweet and protective, but not to protective. I mean, he has to protect Calla, or she would die from her own idiocy, so... He respects her, and is respected by his and her packs. And the fact that he's hot and a player doesn't hurt either! (Why is that badass-iness so attractive??? Hmmm...)

And Mason and Nev are just halarious! But will probably end up undeveloped, because they are secondary characters. Booo!


*** This review used to be longer and better and had a lot more Shay hating but it got deleted when I pressed the backspace button and had to re-write it. It was very annoying***

It took me forever to get into this book, I mean forever in my book reading world since I usually can devour a book or two within a 24 hour period. This one took me over a week to read. It wasn't that it was bad, it was just something about it just couldn't hold my interest. It might have been the fact that Calla had started out as this strong fierce Alpha female. But then Shay comes into the picture and Ren gets all jealous, which can you blame him. Through the entire book Ren is trying to win Calla's affection and convince her that his feelings aren't just duty related, but are real. And Shay OMG can anyone be anymore annoying I mean seriously!!!! That boy would have gotten kicked and punch waaay too many times by me, I mean he literally bullied her into liking him, well it seemed that way in my opinion. And now she's turned her back on Ren and her pack... damb ass move if you ask me yes it she went with Ren and didn't turn her back on what she knew it wouldn't have made an interesting book. OK well until like page 200 or so is when I finally got interested in it enough to finish it. And I still wanted to smack Shay over and over and got to the point where I wanted to smack Calla too and just ask her "what the hell are you thinking you dumbass?!" but oh well I was going to say I hope things get better in the further books, but i'm afraid I might be disappointed as well in those, but I will read them, because I have this insane obsession of finishing a series once I've started it. And so Bring on Wolfsbane! ( )

"Shay loves me. He would risk everything to find his way
back to my side and set me free. Because that's what love is, isn't it? It has to be."
