Nightshade was an interesting read. It was a YA paranormal romance dealing with werewolves and a pretty obvious love triangle, which I was a bit skeptical about. I’d seen plenty of mixed reviews about the series, but I figured I’d give it a shot and I ended up liking the book quite a bit. There were aspects about the book that I loved and aspects that I hated or am tired of encountering in YA novels.

What I loved:

What I didn’t like:

Overall, I enjoyed reading the book and will definitely continue the series. Nightshade ended on a major cliffhanger and I have no idea where the story will go. I would recommend this book to others. If you like YA paranormal romances and don’t mind love triangles, it’s a great read.
