Review: Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

Synopsis: 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

Review: I have posted a review on this book before, and it went something like, “Why do the Wolves of Mercy Falls turn into wolves?” and I answered that question with “The cold makes them wolves.” and in Linger the cold no longer has much of an effect. For one, there are new wolves, and for two there’s Sam who well, let’s not give away the plot points, but basically there’s Sam as Sam.

This book was read during massive pain so I can’t comment much but I did read it in almost one sitting and I was engaged in the book, even if it did make me want to punch characters in the face. Yes, those characters know who they are, and they know why they deserve to be punched in the face.

Either way, Maggie once again doesn’t fail to emit an emotional response from me, even if it is total appall at the plot line of this book, especially in terms of the parental units.

I am anxiously awaiting the final book in the series and all I know about it is that Maggie threw out the MS a month before it was due, and laid on a floor and was certain she would never write anything again. So I guess she picked herself back up and finished the book because yay it’s coming soon!

And I tried to get an ARC but I failed, maybe I need to bug them some more . . .
