Okay, we all know how much I love Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. If not, well, you’ve been living under a rock or something. Thanks to the lovely Erika from Moonlight Book Reviews, I was able to read Wolfsbane a little early. 🙂 As is with most sequel reviews, I’m not going to say much, but I’ll try to hit the basic points.
Ms. Cremer’s writing is addicting, beautiful, and very engaging. There’s never a dull moment in the book and the story seemed to fly by–in a good way. My interested remained in tact throughout the whole book, which, given the size of it, is impressive. Most of the time, lengthy books fail to hold my interest the entire time, but this one succeeded.
A lot of new characters are introduced in this book and it was great meeting them all, and getting a feel for them. Readers will get to learn more about the Searchers and what they stand for, as well as learn the history of the wolf packs. That’s one of the reasons I love this series: the history. There’s so much of it and it’s so rich and believable.
All in all, Wolfsbane is a sequel that doesn’t disappoint and, like the first book, it ends with a cliffhanger, one that will leave you angry over having to wait for the next book. As I said on Twitter, reading Wolfsbane is like watching a really good episode of Buffy. 😀
