"The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stievater

In Maggie Stiefvater's SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they fought to be together. Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in."


Most of you probably already know this, but the color of the cover, is actually the color of the font inside. So the first book, Shiver, is blue outside, the font is blue. The second book, which is Linger, has a green cover, so it's font it green.

Forever, the third and final book in The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, is red, meaning the font inside is red too!

I never seen any other books have colorful fonts, very original(;

Story Line:

Whenever someone asks me what Shiver, Linger, and Forever are about, I always answer, "It's almost like Twilight, but subtracting the vampires and the insecure Bella." Don't get me wrong, I love Twilight, but I'm a werewolf kind of girl, so TEAM JACOB! All the way!

Before I start reviewing, please remember this is the third and FINAL book in The Wolves of Mercy Fall series! Shiver is the first, and Linger is the second! I don't want to ruin the books for you!

Linger left us, with Sam being human, and Grace being a wolf! A lot of things have changed since Linger ended.

As a young wolf, Grace is still very unstable and can change at anytime, which she does at various moments throughout the story. Forgetting who she is, where she's at and what she's supposed to do once she's human again, Grace calls Sam for help.

On his way to the store, which Grace is waiting out front of, Sam doesn't see her anywhere. The only things he sees are a pair of clogs, and a sun dress. If he would have only looked around, and into the forest, he would have seen her wolf like form, standing there watching him, hurting.

Mercy Falls is a small town, when something happens, word spreads fast...including wolf attacks. A few of the town leaders, decide to hunt down these wolves, kill them, and finally eliminate this danger.

Time's running short for Sam and Cole, they need to get all of the wolves out of the forest and move them somewhere save! But how?? And where at?!

But I don't want to spoil the entire book, so I guess you'll should have to find out yourself(;

In the first two books, it was always Sam and Grace narrating. Each chapter switching from one to the other. But in Forever, not only is it Sam and Grace, but also Isabel and Cole.

I love Maggie Stiefvater's writing style, it's fun and playful! The different love and romance scenes between Grace and Sam, and Isabel and Cole are so cute, and I couldn't resist, but to read them over and over again!

Forever was AMAZING! I found myself holding my breath throughout parts of the story, waiting and anticipating what's going to happen next! Even though the ending was left a bit open, let's just cross our fingers, and hope that there's be another book in store, for us die hard fans!(:


  1. Great review I really enjoyed this series too! I agree about the ending. I did find the ending was left too open for a real ending but I loved getting to walk with them through their wolf forms that was really neat!

  2. I couldn't get into Shiver, and I'm not really sure if I want to give it another try. I know A LOT of people who LOVE this series, but unfortunately, it's not really for me. However, I'm totally glad you enjoyed it!


I love hearing what you guys have to say, so don't be shy and leave a comment!
