 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?

My Take:
While reading I couldn't help myself but see this world come to life, I was following Calla on her journey when she learned something I was there and appalled that she didn't know. This was very easy to get into because I felt that Calla needed to know what was happening but being in the dark can be a life or death thing.It different than any other werewolf book because the character doesn't see herself as that type of paranormal their new words for us instead of the normal paranormal words we get amazing and easy to remember words to remember words. On a mountain reserved for the Guardians to protect, something has to happen right. Ever wonder if you knew who you would marry, for Calla that's the way it has been since well forever, as a guardian/alpha Calla has to follow the rules and never stray away. Instead Calla ends up re-thinking the rules and because of unexpected rescue on her part, she now has to choose either to live life she was set forth to or fight for something that is beyond the power of any alpha. I couldn't really say what team I was, so by the end it was really Calla who made the choice, for me well Ren is all sorts of HOT!! but Shay has something too so for right now I'm Team Calla.

5/5 stars
