Snakeroot by Andrea Cremer

"Bosque Mar haunts the dreams of both Adne and Logan, trying to escape for the Nether, where Calla, Shay and the other Guardians trapped him in the final battle in the War of All Against All...

Will he turn Adne to the dark side? Will Logan reclaim his birthright? And will darkness take over our world?"
(from Goodreads)

Flo's Review
There's something nice and comforting about coming home, and this is general feeling I got when reading Snakeroot. While we did not have Calla and her pack, many of the characters that we came to know in Wolfsbane and Bloodrose take center in this one. Also, I was really happy to see one particular character return. If you've followed the Book Nerds for awhile, you'll have no problem figuring out who I'm talking about ;-) The new characters also were notable -- Shiloh, and also Holt who I loved to hate.

Detouring to talk about Holt, it was crazy everything that was going on with Anika and the Searchers! Honestly, that all stressed me out even more than the whole, "Oh Bosque Mar is trying to come back" thing.

This was a shorter read than Andrea's other books, so I was able to speed through it in no time. I should have known there would be a cliffhanger ending, but I got so involved in the story that I forgot what Andrea does to us until I reached the end and was like, "Whaat? The book is ending now?!?"

After I finished this, my immediate thought was, "I need to read Captive now!" (Unfortunately, I didn't have it with me.) This is testament to the fact that I love Andrea's writing and this world. If you liked the Nightshade books then you won't be disappointed with this one.

  1. What??? You already read Snakeroot? I have it sitting on my desk waiting for me to finish reading The Elite. I haven't had much time to read over the holidays with my son out of school.

    Yes...You need to read Captive. I LOVED it.

    Have you read Rift and Rise yet? Those are very good as well. I believe there is supposed to be a third book in that series as well.
