Goodreads Synopsis:

The astonishing #1 New York Times bestseller.

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.

My Review:

Hmm. When this book came out I wasn't sure if I wanted to read it. The first book was an epic fail in my opinion, but I wanted to give this series a chance to see if it would turn the story around. I'm sad to report that it did not.

We're back at Mercy Falls with Grace, Sam and their struggle of being together. Grace suddenly feels sick and is told that her destiny to become a wolf is near and she can't escape her fate. (Wait! What now??) In the first book Grace was introduced as a lonely human and now she is turning into a wolf! Okay that just seems odd. Why would she turn into a wolf and not know that she was able to? Sam on the other hand, is struggling with his new found life and dealing with the young wolves Beck brought with him from Canada. So basically, this book was very slow and the plot didn't really progress. The only thing that I noticed that was added to this was the point of views of Isabel and Cole which brought an interesting and fresh idea to the story. Overall, it just wasn't my cup of tea and I was really looking for something different to read.
