 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.
