“Linger” by Maggie Stiefvater

Back of the Book:

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.

At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love — the light and the dark, the warm and the cold — in a way you will never forget.

Janina’s Review on

Altogether, the book wasn’t bad – rather slow, though – but it was one of those sequels that wouldn’t really have been necessary in my opinion. While I wasn’t totally ecstatic about Shiver, I definitely would have remembered it as a beautifully written stand-alone book with an ending that made me hope for a better future for the two main characters. It didn’t need a sequel. (read the entire review here)

[xrr rating=2.0/5]

The very worst thing about this book is that I don’t feel the story really progressed. Sure, things happen, but for a story to progress problems need to be solved or at least come to some sort of end. To me it felt that the author just piled on some more problems.

The very best thing about this book is that even though it drove me crazy, it still kept me somewhat entertained. Also, I did not feel the need to shoot myself. That is high praise for a book I rate two stars. :-D


This book will be placed under the 2011 E-Book Reading Challenge, the 2011 Fantasy Reading Challenge, and the iChallenges 2011.
