I didn't really care for this book. Actually, I had to force myself to finish it. The only reason that I did is that I've already bought the followi..Show More »ng two books in the triliogy. I only really liked one of the main three characters and I don't think that it is one I'm supposed to like at all. I find the main character whiny and spineless and her boyfriend irritating and selfish. Ren is the only one I cared for and some of the supporting characters of the pack. The action in this book is also really, really slow and was rather on the boring side. It did pick up towards the end but still had a hard time holding my interest. The narrator did a good job of differentiating the characters and I liked that but she spoke so slowly it made a slow book seem neverending. I actually had to put my ipod on faster speed, something I never do, to finish the book.
Wolfsbane isn't as exciting and thrilling as Nightshade. In the first half of the book, we learned about the searcher's laws, magic and history, which..Show More » is necessary, but can be really dull at times. You will discover that almost 80 percent of the book consists of people talking and talking. Calla was mostly silent throughout the whole book. She's the one that's always confused and popping up questions. I know all the questions she had asked was intended for readers to better understand the world of the guardians and searchers. But it can be exhausting and boring for this to repeat over and over. I had to force myself to keep listening in order to get into the second part. It was from there that everything gets interesting. Heart-breaking betrayals, the family secrets........but somehow I know the best part will all be in the third book, Bloodrose. It will be on the bookshelves in spring 2012. We'll wait and see if it gets better.
This book seems rushed and very poorly written. The action scenes are all pretty much the same, boring and dull. The characters are the worst part of ..Show More »the book. Calla went from a strong and determined alpha to a manipulative and unbelievably selfish toerag. Shay has always been unpopular among readers, and after this book, I’m not sure anyone would feel sorry if Calla had let the bear have him. Honestly, Shay is the most whiny, obnoxious, annoying and selfish character ever! Nothing is right about this book. All the honorable characters suffered or died pointlessly, and all the worst characters got the happy ending. Overall, Bloodrose is a complete failure.
