Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2)

Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2)
Title: Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2)
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Rating: 4/5
Summary 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.
At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love -- the light and the dark, the warm and the cold -- in a way you will never forget.
My Thoughts: We continue from where we left off in Shiver- Grace and Sam is now trying to move on. Initially I thought that Shiver was complete in its own and there was no need for a second novel, but by the time I was done I was pining for Forever the third and final novel in this series. When I thought all secrets revealed and everything was laid out on the table, out comes a whole new set of surprises. Grace has some locked up in her closet while Sam fights those from his past. We meet a new character Cole and also see the POV from Isabel from the first book. I never warmed up to Isabel in book 1 but I think I definitely liked her in Linger. With twists turns ups and downs you never fully figure out this book to the end. Wonderfully written. Two thumbs UP!

  1. "Shiver" is an amazing story, especially if you are a fan of werewolves, or wolves in general. I loved Mrs. Stiefvater's writing style, and how she was able to switch point of views flawlessly. Absolutely cannot wait for "Linger".
