“This second book in The Wolves of Mercy Falls series is no less magical than the first, Shiver. Sam is trying to adjust to being a full-time human and the leader of the pack of winter wolves as an early spring thaw occurs. Some of the new members are having problems, and Grace seems to be suffering from the same sort of illness. The sense of a 'ticking clock' is prevalent in this book, and the cliffhanger ending will have readers baying at the moon, waiting for the next installment!”
-- Jackie Blem, Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO


Description

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 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.
