Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Calla Torr, the alpha of the Nightshades werewolf pack, is destined to marry Ren Laroche, the alpha of the Banes pack. But when she rescues a hiker that got attacked by a bear in the woods, the boy ends enrolling as a new kid at her school!
While he’s trying to get Calla alone to thank her for rescuing him she on the other hand tries her best to stay away from him. Because if the Keepers find out that she violated the law just to save him, she's going to be in BIG trouble. Guardians aren’t supposed to save humans or use their powers in front of humans. They are supposed to use it only for the Keepers.
The Keepers are sorcerers who created the werewolves to protect them, hence the name Guardians. And that's what all Guardians are sworn to do, to protect, obey and take command.
Calla and Ren are sworn to each other even before their births and now Calla is starting to have feelings for this new guy, Shay, but not in the same way she feels with Ren. The girl is so confused that she doesn’t know what to do so she just keeps breaking rules and breaking rules until all the lies and deceits catch up to her and literally threatens to rip her throat out.
Will she get away with it? Or will she and her pack suffer the consequences she elicited on them and herself? Find out more in Nightshade by Andrea Cremer!
