Product description

Review

"A must-have that will give Bella and Edward a run for their money." Author: School Library Journal

"Shiver is beautifully written, even poetic at times, and a perfect indulgence for readers of all ages." Author: Bookpage

"If you are a fan of Twilight, then you will love Shiver. Beautifully written, with alternating chapters from Grace and Sam's points of view, this a wonderful debut." Author: The Observer

"Shiver has a sense of unfolding mystery, a genuine quest and threats from human and wolves alike." Author: The Sunday Telegraph

"For years, Grace has been fascinated by the yellow-eyed wolf that saved her from its pack when she was a child. Sam, bitten by a wolf as a boy, is that wolf. Long obsessed with each other at a distance, they finally meet after a wolf hunt (inspired by the apparent death of a local teen) sends a wounded and temporarily human Sam into Grace's arms. Their young love is facilitated by Grace's hands-off parents but threatened by two linked crises: the fact that Sam will soon lose the ability to become human and the instability of a new lycanthrope. Stiefvater skilfully increases the tension throughout; her take on werewolves is interesting and original while her characters are refreshingly willing to use their brains to deal with the challenges they face." Author: Publishers Weekly

"As if high school weren’t already hard enough without adding werewolves to the mix! This earnest teen romance is presented alternately from Grace’s point of view and from Sam’s, so Jenna Lamia and David Ledoux trade off narrating duties. It’s an effective technique for the audio format. At one point in the story, Grace describes Sam and "the soft, sad shape of his lips, looking just like his voice sounded," which is also a pretty good description for how Ledoux sounds. His funny, appealing, sometimes-wobbly voice is especially appropriate for a conflicted teenaged guy who also happens to be a werewolf. Occasionally overwrought or treacly, SHIVER is sure to appeal to fans of TWILIGHT and other paranormal teen fare." Author: AudioFile Magazine
