Calla has always known she would marry Ren and start their own pack of Guardians, werewolves sworn to protect the mountain and the sacred site hidden there whilst serving their masters the Keepers. But when Calla saves Shane, a human boy, trespassing on the mountain she finds herself drawn to him in a way like never before.

The Guardians serve the Keepers, powerful merciless witches, in every way. The Keepers control every aspect of their servants' lives, even who they can love. If anyone doesn't do what they're ordered they and the ones they love will be punished swiftly and without mercy. Everyone in the town is afraid of the Keepers' power and will do anything to stay on their good side, giving them complete control of the community.

The Keepers have decided to unite the Nightshade and the Bane packs through the union of the seventeen-year-olds Calla Nightshade and Ren Laroche. Even their conception was planned, along with the births of their pack mates, in order to create a third pack which will serve Logan Bane, a young Keeper and son of the master of the Bane pack. But Calla's feelings for Shane put all of these plans at risk.

Together Calla and Shane must work together to unravel the secrets of Calla's world and why Shane, a supposedly normal human boy, is so important to the Keepers and why they have ordered the Guardians to protect him. They learn that her world is even more dangerous than Calla had ever thought.

This was a fun book with a great mysteries, mythology and character development. The servitude of the Guardians made for a great struggle and had the potential for a powerful rebellion. It took a love triangle to a more dangerous and conflicted place which added another layer of intrigue to the story. The mythology of this world is very absorbing and interesting.

I loved this book and am excited to read the next in the series.
Good Points
A love triangle that actually had a reason
