The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stievater
In Maggie Stiefvater's SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they fought to be together.

Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.

My Take:
This one was emotional for me because I  had gotten used to all of the characters. I went along with Grace, Sam and Cole, their journey was emotional because I felt right there feeling the exact same things they were. The title says it all to how I finished this story, it took me forever and I am glad because I was able to have the story in life just a little longer. Of course I felt it ended well and the ending was beautifully ended well I really enjoyed the trilogy. The wolves of Mercy Falls will forever be in my life their story may have ended on paper but the story has just begun Maggie is an amazing person/author she really is the one to given the standing ovation for letting us enter the world of Mercy Falls Wolves.

5/5 stars

 the cold. 

Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—watches back. He feels deeply familiar to her, but she doesn't know why. 

the heat. 
Sam has lived two lives. As a wolf, he keeps the silent company of the girl he loves. And then, for a short time each year, he is human, never daring to talk to Grace...until now. 

the shiver. 
For Grace and Sam, love has always been kept at a distance. But once it's spoken, it cannot be denied. Sam must fight to stay human—and Grace must fight to keep him—even if it means taking on the scars of the past, the fragility of the present, and the impossibility of the future.

In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other.  Now, inLinger, 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.

My Take:

From the moment i picked up Shiver I knew it was going to be one to remember forever. I fell for Grace, Sam and their love is really beyond words. In Shiver, you get why the wolves are important and how Grace and Sam come together. You get the access you need to see that true love is beyond just a kiss it can even be a wolf's thought. I fell for Cole in Linger, he just came in and totally blew me away even though he came in as an ass he was a cute smart ass. I loved that too you got see Sam be Sam again but of course when one thing is good their has to be trouble. It couldn't have come at a worst time too but Grace was getting weaker, and not feeling like the Grace we all knew. Later on you know why and it hurt so much not only did I feel her pain but I also felt his pain. It was hard to get past it but over all these two books have told me one thing love it every where even though it comes in a different form.

        About The Author: 

Emma Michaels started book blogging in 2009 (, released her debut novel in 2010 (The Thirteenth Chime) and has been writing ever since.  Now she spends her time writing biographical paragraphs in the third person and drinking an abundance of tea when she works on her novels. She thinks the word ‘she’ can be redundant in bios so she plans to use it as many times as she can and she loves reading almost as much as she loves reality. She has the amazing support of her fiancĂ© and Chihuahua who keep her from forgetting that food is a necessity when she sits down in front of her computer and loses track of time. She obsessively follows book bloggers and other reviewers and loves e-mails from readers because readers really are an author’s best friend(s). 

My Take:

This was amazing I loved the whole history of things, Emma has done it again with another amazingly beautiful story. I was up most nights thinking about what was happening and trying to desperately put together everything. I am still in love with David, he is the one to bring home you just want to grab him  and hold on to him. I never knew of  this legend so being introduced to it was amazing. Emma brought me in with her previous book and this is in my opinion another knockout, I loved every aspect and I was so tempted to tell everyone everything this book made me that excited. Because of this book I want to see what is to come of me when I go and explore a small town Emma I hope you can come get me if I need help. I just would like to applaud Emma Michaels for giving me a new sense of everyday things. Everyone and their grandma needs to read this one because its sure to deliver the best.
