    • Laura

      OMG I though the same thing too when I saw this! The model on the cover looks just like her!

  • Big D

    Chapter excerpts from upcoming books are an excellent idea. EW should do this more often.

    Having read the previous two books, I can say that this chapter is much sexier than anything that has come before. Also, very happy that Ren is back in full force. He was pretty much my favorite character and I missed him in wolfsbane – which i read as an ARC months ago.

  • Kristin

    Oh, so glad to see Ren back in the action. This chapter gave me the peace of mind I needed to survive until Bloodrose releases!

    • Angel

      me too!

      • Cat

        ditto! at the end of wolfsbane i was immediately on the web looking for a sneak peak and here it is!!! :D

    Wow Sideline reporter/Novelist…Andrea Kramer is more talented than I ever knew! Must do most of her writing the off season. Can’t imagine she’d find time to do so during the NFL season.

  • Angel

    I`m so glad Ren is back, I really hope she chooses him. I feel like Shay is a Shady character and I hope Calla starts making some better choices.

    • Sarah

      Same!! I started freaking out and got really excited in Wolfsbane when Adne said they were going to get Ren :D

    • Astano

      I completely agree- Calla definitely needs to start thinking with her brain again. Soon. Being rash and impulsive is what got her into the incredibly tangled web she’s in.
      And Ren has his flaws for sure, but he is still the superior choice over Shay, who is an immature, cocky and selfish little boy. Sorry to those who like him, but I can’t stand the guy=)

  • Charlie

    I loved it!!
    Can’t wait for the book to come out, it’s a shame that we have to wait so long to see what happens next.
    I hope Calla stays with Shay.

  • Victoria

    Love wolfbane and the first chapter of Bloodrose can’t wait till feb 2012

  • helen

    • Cat

      for reals?!

  • Marie

    OMG!!!!! I don’t want to wait! I hope Calla and Ren stay together!! I’m thrilled!

  • Brianna

    ooohhh i love calla’s little romance with ren, but i really hope she stays with shay. he’s my favorite

    • Miasara

      Team Ren! I think he’s perfect for Calla. Always has her in mind. If I had a guy like that, win! You can see their cooenctinn instantly. Ren knows Calla should be with him, but is still trying to let her decide. He’s funny too, which I always look for. I’m always looking forward to one of his scenes.Viviendeadtossedwaves at gmail dot com

    TEAM SHAY!!!!! Great excerpt! So excited and seriously cannot wait for Feb ’12 but I really hope she stays with Shay :) Ren is urgh!

    • gen

      NOOOO!!! ren! she is to go with ren!! RENN!!!! shay is the “ugh” one!!!

  • Rachel

    I’m so torn over ren and Shay i don’t know who’s best

  • Valerie

    OMFG! Ren is my whole! I hope Calla chooses him. Shays is a jerk. I can feel something odd about him but i just can put my finger on it. When i finished Wolfsbane, i was like “Whaaaaaa…?” I was just so happy Calla had finally made a good decision through out the whole thing. It is her fault Ren had been even more confused. Now it was her job to fix what her selfishness had caused. I’m dying to read the rest of Bloodrose! Aaaah! The first chapter was just soo good.

    • annie

      my thoughts precisely. Shay was kinda cool but now he is soooo annoying, tell u the truth, I wish he dies. It would make everything so much easier!
      Team Ren FOREVAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
