The book picks up right where Nighshade ends. Calla is in the hands of the Searches, her once sworn enemies. As Calla begins to trust the Searches and learn her true history, she must also begin to deal with the repercussions of her decision to leave her loved ones behind.
While Calla feels sure of why she ran with Shay, she is now left wondering about the fate of her packmates, family and friends in the hands of the Keeps. Desperate to save them, Calla must trust the people she was taught to hate not only with her own safety and well being but with the safety of her loved ones as well, if she can even find them.
Andrea does an amazing job at weaving the answers to questions left unanswered in Nighshade and introducing the a new world, the world of the Searches. Wolfsbane kept my heart racing from the moment I opened it until the moment I closed it. Packed with action, mysteries solved and a world of uncertainty, Andrea has created an amazing world where what was once is no more and what could be seems almost impossible. Although some mysteries seemed as to be solved, others are introduced leaving you aching for their answers.
At its heart this is a story about love and how that love binds us to the ones we love. I enjoyed every moment I spent with Calla, feeling her struggle, as if it were my own, as she tries to find out who she is, dealing with her actions and trying to find her place a mist learning a truth that is difficult to believe.
Andrea makes it easy to feel the love, pain, loyalty and fear her characters face through their journey, a journey worth taking.
This is an amazing read, heart racing from the first page to the last and will leave you wanting, aching for the next book.
