Calla has always known her destiny. She was born an alpha Guardian, a special kind of werewolf who work for The Keepers, a group of powerful witches. She knows that on her 18th birthday she will enter a union with an alpha male, Ren, and they will be the leaders of their new, combined packs. But one day, out on patrol, she finds a human being attacked by a bear, and she finds herself breaking all the rules and saving him. It turns out that Shay is not any sort of normal human--he's got powerful protection in the Keeper ranks, though he is completely unaware of it. But he's very aware of Calla and her secret, and falls very much in love with her. Calla feels the same way, but struggles to fulfill her duties. That gets ever more complicated as more and more secrets are revealed about the past and the nature of the Keepers. The Twilight crowd will love this series (this is book one, the next, Wolfbane, comes out in July of 2011). It's rougher, tougher and far sexier than Twilight, with smart teenagers and minimal teenage whining. It certainly is a page turner, with the kind of ending that makes you scream in frustration and count the days until the next book's release.
