staff picks: Nightshade

All of her life, Calla has known. She has known that she was an alpha-wolf and that the other Guardians in her pack would follow her commands. She has known that the Keepers must be obeyed and will protect them. She has known that when she turns 18 she will be wed to fellow-alpha Ren Laroche. She knows all of these things until the moment she saves the life of a human boy. Suddenly everything she has ever known is uncertain. Suddenly a world of paths is open. What paths will she chose? Find out in ‘Nightshade’ by Andrea Cremer.
