Summary: (from Goodreads)
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers.

But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything— including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

The Story:
This book has a teenage girl as main character, though not an ordinary girl. This girl is an alpha wolf, of her pack. So not enough she has to handle all the wolf things, like marriage to the alpha male, hunting etc. The teenage way of life, with boys, friends, partying etc. But she has to handle both worlds at once. Which isn´t always easy. When you are not let in on all the secrets going on behind your back.. While she figure out who she is, or is she just the girl the pack says she is and made her to be. Who will she choose?

My Opinion:
I loved this book. At first I didn´t really know. But I really got to love the book. And the whole story. There are like in many other books a romance triangle drama. Which never goes wrong :P If you ask me xD Though I will not get into who I liked more then others :P Since there probably are still people out there who haven´t read it yet.

I chose to give this one a 5 out of 6 stars :)
The reason it didn´t get 6 stars is because the main character was for me a little disappointing. She didn´t really grew as much as she should have done with her experience. And she was a bit to selfcentered for my taste. Though it didn´t ruin the rest of the book :P I am super excited about the sequel. Because I have to know what will happen next :)

  1. I just finished this book last night. I feel that Calla needed to be a little selfish. Sometimes you have to do things for you not for everyone else around you. She always did what was right for her pack but as she saw all of them finding their own happiness she realized that she was going to be mating Ren, who is a great character but not the boy she is in love with.

    I really enjoyed the story, I felt I finally got a older teen book that had plenty of twists and turns to keep people guessing. It was much more than just a werewolf story.
