A Letter to Calla Tor

WARNING: this thing is just bursting with spoilers for Bloodrose.

Dear Calla,

So here's the thing: I really like you. I do. And I hope you understand that I mean this in the best way possible.

But you see, you've left me dismayed. I'm disappointed in you. You just didn't follow through the way I was hoping you were going to.

Because after all this fuss at the beginning of Bloodrose, about being independent and THE alpha, you caved. Oh, you gave in. Again and again and again. For what? For him.

Meanwhile- you just kept leading the other one on. I'll say it: you were a tease, and you used Ren to get what you wanted from him then kicked him to the curb. And you held the two boys to a double standard, when you kept going on about how confused you were. And here's the thing: if you really always liked one over the other, then just say so. Stop pretending to care about the other one. But at least treat him decently, because he desereved a hell of a lot more than he got.

And by the way- I think it kinda sucks how little you mourned him. It should have been SHATTERING, but it wasn't. Nope. And really, I feel terrible for poor Adne. That's just sad. But was it ever brought up? Nope, because you got the guy you wanted all along and you could be together FOREVER.

Maybe that's punishment enough- that you're stuck with him because you chose him. But really, Shay isn't all he's cracked up to be. You blamed Ren for all their stupid fighting and plans, and somehow Shay got off the hook consistently for doing the exact same thing. Hypocritical, much?

And in the end, I just wanted to see something really awesome and satisfying. Like, just settle for being the independent alpha you are. But no. You chose. And then you lied about choosing. And on and on and on this went- oh yeah, by the way? There's a war going on.

So really, I'm left feeling a tad disenchanted by you. I expected better, and that isn't what I ended up with.

This is why I couldn't finish the first book. Calla talks about being strong, but she never is, and all the boy drama was pretty infuriating. I totally second your letter. :]

I didn't actually read this because I haven't started this series yet, but I wanted to know that I love that you wrote a letter!

This is great! I totally agree with you.

Team Ren <3

I actually haven't read Wolfsbane or Bloodrose but I'm totally someone who flips right to the back of the book to find out what happens so obviously I'm going to read this letter for spoiler info :)

Gah, Calla choosing Ren is bad enough, but on top of that Cremer killed him off?! There goes my reason for loving this series. I didn't like the back-and-forth approach that Calla took in Nightshade and I'm assuming this continued throughout the series so I'll probably not bother reading the other books. *very upset about what happened to poor Ren*

Bahahahahahahahahahahahahahah. Great letter and I agree with you competely. Sometimes I just wanted to slap the girl and the ending was a bit of a cop-out... just saying'.

This is a great type of review! Very original:) I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and have already found LOADS of authors I didn't know about.

ESPECIALLY Jennifer Armentrout (BTW I can't believe I won her giveaway - thanks SO much. I'm totally addicted to her now because of the interview and your blog:) I emailed you my address yesterday - I can't wait to read Obsidian!!)

Thanks for all the work you put into your blog.

Nods head in agreement . I felt cheated and I was on the team but she wasn't strong and didn't make a choice since there was a war.

She made her choice time and time again. I jokingly say that she Katnissed her way out of making any choice. I thought the author choose the easy way out IMHO. Great Letter.

I 100% agree!

Ren deserved so much more than he got.
