Book Description

12 July 2011 Shiver
A gorgeous collector's set of this addictive and hypnotic trilogy exploring the all-consuming romance between two star-crossed lovers: a yellow-eyed wolf boy and a human girl. For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods. Especially the yellow-eyed beast whose chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Every winter she watches him, but every summer, he disappears... Sam leads two lives. In winter, he stays in the frozen woods, with the protection of the pack. In summer, he has a few precious months to be human, until the cold makes him shift back again. When Grace and Sam finally meet, they realize they can't bear to be apart. But can they find a way to stay together as the stakes grow higher and death comes closing in?

About the Author

Maggie Stiefvater's life decisions have revolved around her inability to be gainfully employed. Talking to yourself, staring into space, and coming to work in your pyjamas are frowned upon in most jobs, but are highly prized traits in novelists and artists. Maggie now lives a surprisingly eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia, with her charmingly straight-laced husband, two kids and multiple neurotic dogs. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and unique triology 2 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback
*This review is from my blog becca-likes-books.tumblr.com*

I'm going to review The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy in one go, with as few spoilers as possible. Here goes!

Shiver opens with Grace, a practical, kind and very normal teenage girl in Mercy Falls - apart from the fact that she was attacked by a pack of wolves six years ago, and now she can't stop thinking about them. Thinking about one wolf in particular, the one with yellow eyes, who stopped the rest of the pack from killing her.

Then one day, an injured boy appears on her front porch, with familiar yellow eyes... Sam.

Maggie Stiefvater has a really interesting and original take on the werewolf/shapeshifter myth - they are not transformed by moonlight, but by hot and cold, so they are wolves in winter and human in summer. Sam and Grace know that they don't have much time together before he will be lost to his wolf shape again, and the love they share is tenderly realised and believable. Unlike Grace, who is strictly scientific and sensible, Sam is a hopeless romantic with a passion for books, poetry and music, desperate not to lose his humanity and return to his animal form. It's hard not to fall a little bit in love with him. The narrative switches between their two voices, which complement and contrast each other really well. The plot is gripping, especially with the element of time running out. The end is a huge shocker and I couldn't wait to get onto the next one.

Linger is the second in the trilogy, and picks up where Shiver left off - on an edge-of-your-seat moment of suspense and unknowing. I was so glad to have more of Grace and Sam!

3.0 out of 5 stars I've read better 1 Oct 2014
Format:Paperback
I was really looking forward to these books - I'd heard great things about it and saw it ranked really well on Goodreads, so that might be why I'm being a bit harsh. To be honest, the books can only be described as 'meh'. I persevered, hoping they would get better, but though there were some interesting twists along the way (and I really enjoy the idea of thermomorphic werewolves), the constant switching of first person narrators was very confusing. The books also suffer from the lazy character development that seems to infect a lot of stuff aimed at teens. Grace's friends are two dimensional, her parents are airy-fairy and not really involved in her life because of... reasons? And she and Sam have no chemistry, or any common interests. This series gets three stars from me because of the premise and the fact that it did manage to keep my attention to the end, but really, the execution was too sloppy to give it anymore.
My advice: If you want an original and well written book about teenage werewolves with decent characters and a plot full of amazing twists and turns, go and read Her Own Shadow: The Story of a Werewolf Girl (Wolves of the Birch Wood Book 1) by Ann Guillory. It's funny and dark and has a great narrative style.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great, unusual love story 3 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a massive fan of such stories as Twilight, but the difference between Meyer's and Stiefvater's work is Stiefvater takes the time to draw the picture of the love story in intricate detail. Nothing is left out.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED them all 25 Sep 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read this series twice now. LOVED them all. It tackles a well covered topic from a completely fresh and unique angle (for me) and I loved getting to know the characters. It's not a fast paced plot and centres much more around the personalities and relationships in the books. Had me laughing and crying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't believe I already read them all! 8 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The story is catching, you come to love all the main characters, it really drives you quickly through the three books.
I liked the deal: three books paid for little more than one! Super!
I recommend this trilogy to everyone!

3.0 out of 5 stars Became a chore to read on the last book 21 Dec 2013
By Kate
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This set was an ok read but I found myself skipping through the last book just to get it finished. Started off with high hopes but it got a bit boring and struggled in the end. Perhaps better for teenagers (I've now given them to my friends 12 year old son).

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good books but a weak ending. Teenage fiction for my daughters that they enjoyed during the half term break. Adequate.
