The third and final installment of the international bestselling Nightshade trilogy!
Calla has always welcomed war. But now that the final battle is upon her, there's more at stake than fighting. There's saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay's wrath. There's keeping Ansel safe, even if he's been branded a traitor. There's proving herself as the pack's alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers' magic once and for all. And then there's deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is. In this remarkable final installment of the Nightshade trilogy, international bestselling author Andrea Cremer crafts a dynamic novel with twists and turns that will keep you breathless until its final pages.

Andrea Cremer spent her childhood daydreaming while roaming the forests and lakeshores of Northern Wisconsin. She now lives in Minnesota, but she thinks of her homeland as the "Canadian Shield" rather than the Midwest.
Andrea has always loved writing and has never stopped writing, but she only recently plunged into the deep end of the pool that is professional writing. When she's not writing, Andrea teaches history at a very nice liberal arts college in St. Paul.
In the little spare time she can find, Andrea stares up at trees, rescues infant rabbits from predatory cats, and invents names for pug puppies. She has an unfortunate tendency to spill things—white carpets beware!
The last installment in the Nightshade trilogy suffers from the weaknesses common to multivolume finales: the need to compress plot summary and character development from earlier titles into the opening while building a story that not only stands on its own but ties up loose ends. Still, Cremer’s many fans will be willing to overlook these flaws in exchange for another fast-paced romp with shapeshifters Calla, Ren, and Shay as the fight between Keepers and Searchers comes to a bloody end. Calla is drawn to both Ren, her original intended, and Shay, who turned werewolf for her in the first title (Nightshade, 2010). She tries to remain neutral while maintaining her alpha status, protecting her traitorous brother, and navigating the many familial revelations presented as Cremer ties up plot details. Although the writing is frequently overwrought—with constant growling, fighting, and lusting—Cremer’s device of focusing on the werewolves’ sense of smell to describe their emotions remains a clever touch in this crowd-pleasing finale. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Author appearances, a fat advertising budget, and a dedicated website are all lined up to promote the final book in the internationally best-selling Nightshade series. Grades 7-11. --Debbie Carton
