“Just when you thought you had enough of werewolves, along comes Nightshade, which turns the genre on its head. High school cliques take on a new meaning with wolves and their packs. This story is full of twists, suspense, and betrayal. You will be caught between two boys: one human, and one werewolf. The ending will shock you and leave you begging for more!”

Calla is the alpha female of a shape-shifting wolf pack. She is destined to marry Ren Laroche, the pack's alpha male. Together, they would rule their pack together, guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But then, Calla saves a beautiful human boy, who captures her heart. Calla begins to question everything - her fate, her existence, and her world and the orders the Keepers have asked her to follow. She will have to make a choice. But will she follow her heart if it means losing everything, including her own life?
