REVIEW: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater


★★

After Grace was attacked by wolves she has spent years watching them. In particular the yellow-eyed wolf, her wolf. She feels deeply connected to this wolf for a reason she can't explain. Sam is the yellow-eyed wolf. He spends his winters watching Grace, the girl he loves, but for a short time during the year he is human but has never grown the courage to talk to her... until now. Grace and Sam are instantly connected and fall in love the only problem is that winter is upon them and Sam will have to return to being a wolf unless he can fight it and Grace can help.

I really enjoyed this book. It did seem to take me forever to read for some reason... normally a book as good as this I would have finished in a day not over a week. But I still found that I enjoyed this book. The characters are well defined and there relationship believable. I was really impressed with the way Maggie Stiefvater was able to describe how Sam was always fighting the cold but not having it be overpowering in the story. The story bounces between protagonist views from Grace to Sam pretty frequently but I really enjoy stories where you can get each characters view. This really helps you understand the whole story. Overall, I highly reccommend you read this.
