Writing: 18/20
Recommendation: 18/20
Overall: 89/100 or B
For years, Grace has watched the wolves that live behind her house for years. A yellowed eyed wolf... her wolf has a chilling presence. Maybe it is the fact, that this wolf saved her life once. Meanwhile, Sam leads two lives. One in the forest during the winter, watching a girl. Another in the summer, where he has a few moments of being human until he gets turned back by the cold.
An another attack has happened again, but unlike Grace, Jack is dead and his family wants something to happen. A hunting party has gathered to kill all the wolves in the forest. Grace goes to stop them and on her back porch, she finds a boy with those same yellow eyes. It is her wolf somehow. Winter is near, so Grace and Sam have to find a way to stop him from changing.
I loved Shiver. It was a quick and cute read. I am not a huge fan of doomed love, but Grace and Sam were so cute. Grace's obsession with wolves was different, but in this book, it really fitted it. It is well known that I fall for fictional characters and Sam is in there. He is really sweet, honest, and cute. It doesn't hurt that he worked in a bookstore. The plot was also very fast and entertaining. I loved the new approach to werewolves. It was original. Stiefvater is an amazing writer and I need to check out her other books. If you are looking for a paranormal romance, this is a book for you.
