Book review: Linger by Maggie Stiefvater


Linger by Maggie Stiefvater is the sequel to Shiver.  The story continues on with Grace and Sam as well as other Isabelle and Cole.  Now that Sam has been “cured” from being a wolf, we are faced with Grace’s sickness.  Grace was bitten as a young child by a wolf but never shifted because her father had locked her in a car (by accident) on an extremely hot day.  The symptoms are now starting but in a bad way.  She is not shifting but rather slowly dying.  Sam is trying desperately to keep her alive and the solution comes from Cole who is a new wolf.
I was very excited to read Linger because I enjoyed Shiver so much.  I found that this story dragged on a bit and was not as fast-paced as the first one.  Only the last 50 pages grabbed me and kept me for wanting more.  I really enjoy the way that Stiefvater tells the story from different perspectives.  Each chapter is told from the point of view from either Sam, Grace, Isabelle or Cole.  I am still hooked on the series and will read the final installment once it comes out.  Overall, my rating is 3 and 1/2 stars!
