wow I didn't even know there was going to be anymore, looking forward to this, but I can't say I remember this character :S

I wish that Ren would be around for this book, I really do, I feel his death was not necessary and wasn't really needed to build up the plot, if anything it took so much away from the book. I have never left reading a book so sad or unjustified yes I really was that upset he died, yes I also understand its a book but when a book leaves you feeli

Hmmmm after Bloodrose, I'm not sure if I'm reading anymore Nightshade books. I never, EVER got over what happened. *cries out Ren's name* So I'll be waiting for reviews with this one.

Damn I love these covers though.

Also, PLEASE do not begin calling this series a "saga." I WILL END YOU.




PLEASE don't pull a Cassandra Clare and never come up with a new idea for as long as you live! NIGHTSHADE is done. Let it go.

-I wasn't a big fan of the Nightshade trilogy, it was enjoyable enough but the ending kind of ruined it for me. I hated that the main characters all ended up turning into wolves forever. I'm hoping this series eventually has them turning back into humans… Otherwise what was the point of everything they went through if they don't remember and don't get to live human lives?

-Snakeroot focused mainly on Adne (Ren's sister) and the Searchers. I liked Adne as a side character in the original series, an/>-

Despite the easy read that this book was, I can't seem to muster the interest or heart to care about the characters, their "new" conflict, or the outcomes to follow.

After having read all seven of Cremer's books set in the Nightshade universe (original trilogy, prequel duology, adult erotica under pen name, and now this), I think I'm done. The conflict in this new series seems to simply be a resurrection of the one that the author resolved in her first trilogy. Because of that, I don't feel any

After Bloodrose, I was hesitant to read this book, but I found it better than I could have ever hoped for. It’s a captivating book with an incredible set of characters and an even more intriguing storyline. I loved every minute I spent reading it, and I don’t have a moment of regret that I picked this book up.

I can't wait for it but I hope somehow Calla and the pack are in it. The epilogue kind of made me sad cause I wanted to know more about what happened once they became wolves fully. I want to know if the remember anything or can somehow have their powers back. Seeing the other comments others will probably hate me for saying this but even though I cried when Ren died I was Team Shay.

I haven't read the prequels but the Nightshade novels did not disappoint me and I really hope this does

I'm going to give Cremer another shot even though I was supremely disappointed with Wolfsbane.
Jana (My Messy Chapters)
YES.

OMG I am so ridiculously happy there would be a 4th book since I HATED the ending of Bloodrose.

If you guys have read Aftermath (#3.5 novella) you'd know why I am giddy about this. *coughRencough* So yeah.

I hope we get lots of Adne and Connor time. ;)

I don't know why she's continuing the Nightshade books. Don't get me wrong, I loved them, but after the last one I just felt that the story had come full circle and was complete. I don't know if I'll be reading this or not.

Can't believe I'm really considering reading this... I may reevaluate when it actually comes out. Serious trepidation here!!

After reading:
Okay, so now that I’ve read it, I had good reason to be leery :( This has to be one of the most unnecessary, stupid, and infuriating sequels EVER! Though I had my issues with BLOODROSE, it was a good ending to the Rift/Bosque Mar issue. I’m not sure why on earth it needs to be revisited AGAIN!! This seems like back-treading--nothing new is added and/>After

This book was fairly interesting I must admit. I love all thw twists and turns and all the choices the characters must face.

I loved the original Nightshade trilogy and I really liked the Nightshade prequel duology. So I was really happy to see that Mrs. Cremer is continuing the series. I know how Mrs. Cremer ends her series, with a hopeful yet depressing attitude.... so I expect to get a little depressed in this new series.

I had high hopes going into this book and was pretty dissappointed when

I screamed when I saw this. I have a bad habit of doing this. Luckily I am always alone when I do this :D So excited for this book. I just figured Bloodrose was the final book. Didn't it even say the final installment on the actual cover slip itself ?_!
Also I am really hoping that this book series will become a movie. It has been a while since I've seen a wolf type of movie. It always seems to be about vampires :D

Okay so first off- AMAZING COVER. I love all of Andrea's covers; simply awesome. However, her fantastic covers can't make up for the fact that she ended Blood Rose with Calla and her pack becoming normal wolves, with no humanity. I mean come on! When I read the ending, i was literally like

Oh. My. Goodness.
Just when I thought the Nightshade series couldn't possibly get any better, Andrea Cremer came out with two fabulous new additions that completely blew me away. In November 2013, I had the pleasure of reading her adult paranormal romance set in the Nightshade universe, Captive, and guys, it was absolutely amazing! And just recently, I was lucky enough to get invited to take part in the blog tour for Snakeroot (published in December 2013). Needless to say, I didn't think

*My Thoughts*

After the awful ending to Bloodrose where the Searchers and Calla's group of Guardian's met and defeated the Keepers and Bosque Mar at the expense of a BUNCH of characters, I, like millions of others thought that this series was finished for good. I mean, what was the point of continuing onward when your characters have won, and they get their HEA just the way Cremer wrote it right?

OH hey Andrea Cremer is writing EVEN more for her Nightshade series!! Is Ren going to be in it?


NOPE!!

Don't care then!

I don't even remember the characters mentioned in this book. I seriously couldn't care less about them.

I hate Calla.

I hate that tool who became a wolf in the end even though that wasn't his true form, I can't even remember his name and he was a main character!

I hate that Andrea Cremer is still making money by milking this series.

And I REALLY HATE that I am still angry about this series. I hate th

I received this book from Penguin Young Readers program in exchange for an honest review. I award this book 3.5 stars. This review will contain spoilers from the Nightshade trilogy.

Snakeroot by Andrea Cremer takes place after the Nightshade trilogy. Calla and friends are now wolves, so they are no longer part of the story. In fact, this book is written in third person omniscient, so we get to see in the heads of multiple characters. Adne and Logan have both been haunted in their drea

I loved Adne and Connor from their very first appearance on
actually, these two kept me reading on when I was extremly frustrated with Calla and Shay (because they are seriously annoying protagonists!)

and The Aftermath was really good... so fingers crossed this will be better than the first 3 books


update:
disappointing. overpriced. and kinda pointless.

I don't expect to continue reading this series.

3.5/5 stars

Even though this is listed as Nightshade Legacy #1 this is still the 4th book in the Nightshade series. There will be spoilers from Bloodrose (book 3) and Aftermath (novella that took place after Bloodrose).

I see that the first chapter of this book IS the Aftermath novella.

Please don't read this review if you have not read BLOODROSE and the AFTERMATH novella. I don't want anyone to be spoiled.

So it's fairly evident by the fact that I've read all the Witches War Books (getting to Captive) that I'm committed to take off and am willing to go the distance with this series no matter how bad it gets. I was never fond of the first trilogy. All three landed three stars and under, this also includes the novella's put out between books. Despite not having written reviews for Rift and Rise , you might notice that both have landed 4 stars. I feel like in both novels, Andrea Cremer upped her game to t ...more

AHHHHH as usual the cover is BOOT-I-FUL!!!!! Although I'll have to admit, this one's slightly creepier with the vines? Roots? crawling up her neck. And in the summary it says: Will Adne go to the dark side? (or something like that) so I'm wondering if it will be kinda like how Bosque Mar...erm...seduced? brain-washed? changed? Eira in the prequels. (Oh, goodness, I hope not. Don't get me wrong, I thought in a really REALLY weird way that the romance between Bosque and Eira was kinda sweet, but I

This is one of those books I had to take a deep breath and brace myself for before reading. Andrea Cremer blew me away with her debut novel, Nightshade when I first started blogging. I raved about this book, but I became increasingly frustrated with the characters and at the end of that series, I was heartbroken. Destroyed. In the worst way possible.

And then I heard a little rumor about this book that gave me this flutter of hope. And since it happens in the beginning of the book, I

This book is either going to be a hit or miss for fans. If you were ticked off with Bloodrose, you may not want to continue on. For Ren fans … I'm sorry, but I'm not saying anything, and if you read No. 3.5, I'm still not saying anything. OK, so Snakeroot takes place after the Nightshade trilogy. I definitely don't recommend starting this book without having read the Nightshade books. Adne (Ren's sister) is the heroine, and we have Logan as the main hero. Their dreams are be

I cannot believe this book only has four books in this series. I know Andrea Creamer put a lot into these books but I really will always have unanswered questions. What happens next? Well I guess we will never know but at least we know what happens to the charters.
This book was fast to read but it was not the best book in the series. I liked the perspectives in this story but I feel like if there were less perspectives in this book there would be more time at the ending to say what happens.
