Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
October 19th 2010 by Philomel
While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies’ throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth-birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack's world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches' War that surrounds them all.

This is a debut YA novel that looks absolutely amazing! I am in love with the idea of a Calla as a werewolf warrior - really sounds like a unique idea. The sequel, Wolfsbane, will come out sometime in Fall 2011, and then the third book, Bloodrose, some time after that. Is it weird that I am looking forward to the sequel of a book I haven't read yet? Because I am!
