Grace and Sam share a kinship so close they could be lovers or siblings. But they also share a problem. When the temperature slips towards freezing, Sam reverts to his wolf identity and must retreat into the woods to protect his pack. He worries that eventually his human side will fade away and he will be left howling alone at the lonely moon. A stirring supernatural teen romance.
In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.
When Sam met Grace, he was a wolf and she was a girl. Eventually he found a way to become a boy, and their loved moved from curious distance to the intense closeness of shared lives.
That should have been the end of their story. But Grace was not meant to stay human. Now she is the wolf. And the wolves of Mercy Falls are about to be kill in one final, spectacular hunt.
Sam would do anything for Grace. But can one boy and one love really change a hostile, predatory world? The past, the present, and the future are about to collide in one pure moment - a moment of death or life, farewell or forever.
When I first raed Shiver almost two years ago, I fell in love. I was fascinated with the beautiful story, amazing characters and fantastic writing. I fell in love with Sam Roth, as did many others who read this series. I waited a long time to read Linger and Forever, mainly because the Croatian translation of Forever was delayed over an over again and since I read Shiver in croatian, I wanted the whole series in the same language. It was really worth the wait. It seems that everything that Maggie Stiefvater writes is wonderful. Her writing is just beautiful and powerful and it just warms your soul. This series has a unique story, I love the idea of wolves that change depending on the weather. The love story between Sam and Grace is just heartwarmingly beautiful and realistc. I also adore Cole and Isabel. They are both very interesting characters and even though they have this darkness inside of them, you cant help but love them. Especially Cole *sigh*. The ending to this series was perfect in my opinion. I know a lot of people were dissappointed with it but I think that it fits well with the story and it leaves you to wonder. And, the covers are just gorgeous. This is one of my favorite series and I´m sure I will re-read it many times in the next year, Sam´s poems definetly. I look forward to everything Maggie writes.
