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 an alternate Paperback edition.

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!

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.

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.

This is probably a book aimed at teenagers but I am a huge lover of twilight/true blood/harry potter so thought I would give this a go! It was very entertaining, did find the 1st book better than the other 2 but it flowed well and was an easy read.

Would highly reccommend to maybe a younger audience, but all in all thoroughly enjoyed!

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.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Aug. 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
Right now we're being inundated in paranormal romances -- including quite a few about werewolves. But Maggie Stiefvater's "Shiver Trilogy" has a delicate, wintry quality that most paranormal romances lack, as well as a romance that tosses aside "Twilight"-style crushy obsessions in favor of a gentle, sweet romance threatened by nature itself as well as humanity.

In "Shiver," Grace has been visited by a yellow-eyed wolf every winter. When a teenage boy is killed by wolves, and his body is stolen from the morgue, she somehow knows that supernatural stuff is afoot.

When a bunch of illegal hunters try to kill the local wolf pack, Grace rushes in to save her wolf -- and finds "her wolf" as a wounded, naked human boy. It turns out that cold triggers his transformations, while "warm makes me me. Makes me Sam." But as the cold approaches the town again, Grace may lose Sam in more than one way -- if she isn't destroyed as well.

"Linger" picks up with Sam and Grace trying to have a semi-normal HUMAN life -- getting a job, thinking about college, and fending off a police investigation into Olivia's disappearance. But Cole is determined to lose his pain in his wolf form, until he inadvertently stumbles into Isabel's life, and she finds herself drawn to him. And Grace's happiness at having Sam back is overshadowed by a mysterious illness, which may draw her even closer to the world of the werewolves.

Finally, "Forever" has Grace returning after her first winter as a wolf, still unstable. She hides in Cole and Sam's house, and for a brief time the young lovers are blissfully happy. But someone has been killed by one of the wolves, and Isabel's father has used his influence to have the entire pack killed.
