Publisher’s summary: The next thrilling novel in the internationally-bestselling Nightshade series!
Fans asked for it, and now they've got it! Andrea Cremer is continuing the story she began in in her internationally bestselling trilogy: Nightshade, Wolfsbane and Bloodrose. In this new installment, 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? In a novel filled with magic, romance and breakneck action, master storyteller Andrea Cremer's newest installment will not disappoint!
I’ll have to admit that as I was getting close to the end of Snakeroot (and even after I was finished), I started to get super worried that there wasn’t going to be any more books following this one. But whew! I cleared it up with Andrea…Snakeroot is the first book in a NEW trilogy. And thank goodness there’ll be more because this story isn’t close to being finished in Snakeroot.
In Snakeroot, the story is told in several different points of view. The primary point of view is Adne because she obviously will be playing a big central part in this trilogy. We also get to read in the POV of Connor, Sabine and Logan Bane. The best part about reading a story with these side characters is that we get to really understand their characters better than we did in the Nightshade trilogy. For example, my view of Logan is totally changed from the way I saw him in the previous Nightshade trilogy to how I’m thinking of him now from reading Snakeroot (Nightshade Legacy.) I don’t know why I just thought he was a wimpy punk in Bloodrose, thinking that was the reason he did what he did in the last book (or if he was just starting to see what the Keepers were doing wrong), but I for sure didn’t see him for who he really is…and we get to see who he really is in this book.
The one thing that frustrated me big-time is the lack of communication between Adne and Connor. This seems to be a common factor in a lot of YA books, but I guess if we all had perfect communication, we would never have issues…right? LOL
There’s a whole new plot twist that I really liked where the Searchers now have no idea what to do with themselves, and there is a whole lot of craziness going on as they try to figure out what to do. On the other hand, there is something truly horrible going down that the Searchers really should be putting their focus on.
I just know this is going to be a great new trilogy where I’ll constantly be dying to read the next book in the series because I’m already craving for the Nightshade Legacy book #2 and Snakeroot isn’t even scheduled to come out until December. *sigh*
