After escaping from her betrothal to Ren, Calla wakes up in her enemy's, the Searchers, stronghold. As Calla regains her strength and starts to question what happened, she is reunited with Shay. As Calla starts to trust the Searchers and slowly realizes the lies she has been told by the Guardians. The first part of the book details the truths and falsehoods of each group, but I still had a bit of a feeling that all is not what it seems in either camp. Calla is now faced with mixed feelings about Shay and Ren once she learns that Ren has helped her escape. The last part of the book is fully action packed so much that your heart will race until you turn the last page.

This book leaves us with a major dilemma facing Calla about Ren and Shay as to which one really holds her heart. Shay makes her feel giddy and in love, while Ren inspires the steady love that she has always known. Ren does not make any real appearances in this book, but he is there in the background and a central force in Calla's actions. So yes, you are faced with a triangle which I hope will be worked out in book three. I have extremely mixed feelings about Ren and Shay in which neither seem exactly right for Calla. Calla, to me, is a typical girl, very confused and yet strong when she needs to be. She needs some answers instead of just acting on instinct as she seems to be doing in this book. I really hope all of my questions are answered in the next installment.

Carrie Kaut how do you get advanced copies of these books?!?!? i want in on this lol

Mary (BookHounds) I belong to a group of bloggers that organize tours of advance copies.

Michelle I'm jealous...

P.E. So excited for Wolfsbane! But I wish there was more of Ren in it. I don't care much for Shay...

Mary (BookHounds) Ren is in the background of this story. He still plays a major part!

P.E. That's what keeps me going. Kidding, I do like reading about the pack too.
