Book 2 (Book 1: Shiver)

Novel Summation:

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 in 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:

In this book Sam is apparently cured. He no longer turns into a wolf when it is cold. However, Grace is becoming sick and it has to do with the mystery about why she didn’t change into a wolf when she was bitten. A new wolf named Cole is introduced. He loves the feeling of being a wolf and losing his humanity. However, a secret about his human past could cause trouble for the wolves. A romance develops between Isabelle who is struggling with emotions over her brother’s death due to her attempt at saving him from being a wolf and Cole. This book has a beautiful romance and it ends with a role reversal and a mission to figure out how to save both the wolves and those who were once wolves. Because not changing into wolves can kill and not being able to change back is also deadly. I think those who enjoyed the first and want to see more of this thrilling romance should read this book and the next.
