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.

My Thoughts
Well what can I say, Shiver was just way beyond my imagination but Linger was nothing I expected. I have waited for this book for so long, and I’m happy to say that no one would be dissatisfied.
Linger takes a step up from Shiver and really works its force, introducing two new first-person narrative voices in addition to Grace and Sam. We've already met Isabel, and now we meet Cole, a new wolf and a complicated jerk creating a motivated four way narrative.

I liked learning more about Isabel, who I think is an appealing character and Cole, is also very captivating. At first the character of Cole is cruel and selfish, and doesn't seem to be anything other than that, but as the book goes on his character develops and is more interesting.
I’m not going to give too much away but Grace and Sam’s love is stronger then ever, the ending is a complete unexpected shock for us and the characters in the story, and leaves you thinking about the book for days after you've finished it. A very good read :D

I so can’t wait for Forever, it’s going to be great!
