Release Date: July 13, 2010
Basic Blurb: (from Maggie Stiefvater’s Website)
The sequel to Shiver follows the story of Grace and the wolves of Mercy Falls.
Maggie says: “It’s about after. What happens after you discover there are werewolves in the wood, after you’ve fallen in love for the first time, after you’ve lost what you think you can’t live without, after you’ve become someone you can’t live with.”
This is the story of a boy who used to be a wolf and a girl who was becoming one.
Just a few months ago, it was Sam who was the mythical creature. His was the disease we couldn’t cure. His was the good-bye that meant the most. He had the body that was a mystery, too strange and wonderful and terrifying to comprehend.
But now it is spring. With the heat, the remaining wolves will soon be falling out of their wolf pelts and back into their human bodies. Sam stays Sam, and Cole stays Cole, and it’s only me who’s not firmly in my own skin.
Nice subtle cover…just like the subtle way the story weaves together!
But my body betrays me. Now I am the unknown, the unknowable.
Why I liked it:
This book is just a great romantic story. I love the way the characters are woven together, the way the story ebbs and flows. Just beautiful. Great job Maggie!
