Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Shiver The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1 - 4 stars
Linger The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2 - 4 stars


----------
Sam has always loved Grace. As a wolf, he watched her from afar. As a boy, he held her in his arms.
Now facing the possibility of a life without her, he will do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means facing his demons. Even if it risks everything he has.
Anything, as long as their love can survive...
----------

I was terribly disappointed with Forever. It was so incredibly long and boring and it took me forever to read because of that.

The first half of it constantly leads up to something happening just around the corner. The chapters are just a few pages short and the tension is immense. And when nothing then happens for 200 pages of this, besides them going back and forth and feeling miserable, you feel like throwing the book out the window.

Finally events take off and we're supposed to feel all sorts of deep emotions for Sam and Grace's struggles to work out a way of saving the wolves from extermination and stay together, while Cole is going bananas working on a cure and Isabel pouts. Honestly? I couldn't care less at this point. The big finale is sort of neat, but at this point I was just so bored with the whole ordeal and felt it was so predictable I just wanted it to be over.

Shiver is by far the best of the trilogy. If only she could have left it at that.
