SINNER follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Shiver Trilogy.


Cole St. Clair has come to California for one reason: to get Isabel Culpeper back. She fled from his damaged, drained life, and damaged and drained it even more. He doesn't just want her. He needs her.


Isabel is trying to build herself a life in Los Angeles. It's not really working. She can play the game as well as all the other fakes. But what's the point? What is there to win?


Cole and Isabel share a past that never seemed to have a future. They have the power to love each other and the power to tear each other apart. The only thing for certain is that they cannot let go.

Praise For Sinner (Shiver)

Praise for Sinner:

"Sinner's sharper and more compelling than the series; it's less about the lupine lifestyle and more a journey of redemption....a refreshing revisit" -Entertainment Weekly

"[S]inner is a precise and profound character study where each word, scene and chapter should be savored." -RT Magazine, Top Pick!

"Romance is one of summer's guilty pleasures and Maggie Stiefvater delivers." -E! online

"[R]eminiscent of Francesca Lia Block's Weetzie Bat books." -Booklist

"[B]rilliantly written....This powerful and compelling story is certain to be a hit with fans of the series and bring new ones to the pack." -School Library Journal

"[A] believable, realistic portrayal of damaged people struggling to fit their quirks together in a relationship... A spectacularly messy, emotionally oh-so-human romance." -Kirkus

"Stiefvater's talent for wordcraft and her powers of observation are as sharp as ever, and the L.A. setting gives her even more cause than usual to treat cars like characters. It's less a romance than a conjuration of the monolith that is mass-market entertainment, the trappings of fame, and the narrow spaces they leave for being human. Or wolf, sometimes." -Publishers Weekly
