Review by Amber I
In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, 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 Isabel, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.
I had a hard time getting really sucked into this story. I kept waiting for it to get the main events that we all knew where coming, and it was taking a really long time.
Something is really wrong with Grace. Shes getting terrible headaches and fevers. We all know it has something to do with the wolves. What does it mean exactly, well we find that out at the very last few pages... Also her parents decide to step in when she needs Sam the most and not let them see each other.
Sam is just getting use to the idea he is normal and will not change into a wolf. But he is ridiculously blind about Grace. He see's how sick she is and can even smell wold on her and yet he doesn't do anything about it.
Isabel was my favorite in this story. She was strong and funny. She let Grace know she knew what was going on and let Sam know he had to do something about it. I really like her! I was more interested in her parts of the story. Her dad is also set on killing the wolves.
Cole is a new wolf. One of the ones Beck made in Shiver. He is having a hard time though staying in wolf form. At first he seems like the bad boy who is arrogant. But towards the end you really see him as a good new addition. He comes with some baggage hes famous and hes missing.. Which he tries to keep to himself. Him and Isabel connect and I liked them together.
I did like the book, just wasn't in love with it. Thought we could of got to the ending in the middle. It made us wait for the dramatic parts until the end. And we knew the whole book that we were waiting for it, so it made it hard to get into some of the smaller stories going on...
