Book Review: Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (Book Review 2010-65)

Product Description

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.

Just when I thought I couldn't find a better book than Shiver for this year, I get the sequel, Linger.  This is just beautifully written and a flat out wonderful romance.  Instead of dwelling on Grace and Sam, Stiefvator brings in Isabelle and Cole to round out the whole story and makes me demand a story just about them.  I am trying hard not to give away any of the story line, but the ending will leave you hanging again and desperate for the next book in this series.  There better be another one soon!


  1. Loved the first one can't wait to read this!

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed Linger. I've been waiting for this book for so long that I'm now hesitant to pick it up -- I'm not sure I'll be able to handle the wait for book 3. ;)

  3. I can't wait to read Linger. I dunno how I'm gonna wait until July!!

  4. I absolutely love the covers on this series

  5. Great review! I'm glad you enjoyed it so much! It makes me eager to crack the spine too!
