Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
audiobook - mp3
Rating 3 stars
book 1: Shiver book 3: Forever
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.
The best part of this book was the relationship developing between Cole and Isabelle. Again I was thrown by the way the characters speak in this novel. I am not one who think that teens don't know anything about life. Like I have said in a previous post some teens have been through alot in their short years. The teens in this book just seem too adult. Grant the the death of a brother and dealing with werewolves would make one more wise but it still was just a bit to unrealistic for me.
The ending was not a surprise. I knew something like that had to happen in order to keep the series going. What I wasn't expecting was Cole explanation of why Grace was sick. And how they had to remedy her illness. In short, I just like this book better than the first. TBR list 3
