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.

I wasn't as excited about Linger as I was about Shiver. It's still a well written story and author Steifvater does a good job of giving the reader complex (and new) characters who, while flawed, are also full of life, raw emotion and believable.

While I was happy that Sam's future seemed brighter than before, Grace's life became more chaotic. Her parents who've been like absentee parents for the past 17 years decide to go "parental" on her and it creates lots of problems for she and Sam. When Grace comes down with a mysterious illness, she begins to question her future as well as the future of her beloved wolves and Sam struggles to find a way to help her.

Isabel is still dealing with the guilt she feels over the loss of her brother (not in the most productive ways) and her parents, who are both self-medicating, are of no help to her. She and Grace have grown closer which is good for both of them but she senses another loss in the near future and she isn't sure she can handle that. She meets her match in newcomer Cole though and sparks begin to fly...sometimes a little too much.

Cole is the epitome of bad boy with good looks, talent and a bad attitude. The kind of guy that makes young girls swoon and normally good natured Dads want to lock-n-load. But he has a story and he might just be the only one who can save Grace.

There was quite a bit more teenage angst and rebellion in this book. There was also a lot more sexual tension which is normal during the teen years but good to know ahead of time if you're a parent of a young reader.

I'm looking forward to reading, "Forever", the final installment in this series but I do hope it's a bit less melancholy.

~Lets start with Sam and Grace~

Myra: I think it was nice to see an established, obviously committed-for-the-long-haul couple in YA

In juxtaposition to a HOT NEW whatever it was with Isabel and Cole

MG: Yes, I really enjoyed seeing Sam and Grace in an established place and seeing the trials teens in their situation would have to go through, in terms of being too young to be truly in love.

Myra: Holla to Maggie for bringing her A-game on the relationships.
I read for the relationships - to see how they develop. More so than for plot I think.

The relationships all felt real. Even Grace's journey with her parents.

I hope FOREVER explores Sam and Cole's relationship.

Personally, I did not care for Shiver as much as I had hoped to. I found Grace and Sam's obsession with one another pretty absurdly disgusting. I suppose their are couples that want to be together 24/7/365, but they probably are not people I would want to know. This book, though, was better from the addition of Cole and Isabel's perspectives. Cole and Isabel are both sarcastic and cynical, so reading their thoughts was much more enjoyable for me than reading the love-soaked longing of Grace and Sam.

One more awesome thing about Linger: the text of the novel is green. Made me realize how awesome it is to not be reading in black and white for a change, which is rarely possible with books. That was an awesome decision on the part of the publisher, although I wish they had done Shiver in blue, so that the series was consistent.

The ending indicates that at least one more book will be coming in this series. Here's hoping that Cole and Isabel keep getting a larger portion of the book. Recommended for fans of the first book. If you're wondering whether to start the series, I might wait and see how people review the series as a whole, as I am still not entirely sold on it.

I really wasn’t that into this book. I’m not sure what it was exactly that bothered me, but I had a really hard time wanting to read Linger. I vaguely remember feeling the same way about the first book, Shiver. However, I can truly say that I did find myself pretty interested in the plot by the end of the book.
I hate that it took so long for this plot to get going. It seemed to drag on for-ev-er. I had to make myself keep reading. Cole and Isabelle really were the only things in the book that held my interest. Sam seemed too emo and Grace was lacking whatever charisma she had in the first book. Actually, Grace and Sam were very Bella and Edward-like in this book. Really annoying. Cole, however, was different. His story is unique and very troubled, which made him a great addition to the story. Of course, Isabelle’s troubled nature kept things feisty as well. She was snarky and contemptuous, which helped cut through the overly sappy emotions coming from Sam and Grace. Thank goodness for characters with issues!
As I said, the ending was pretty darn good. It definitely has me wondering what will happen next. I went ahead and put in a request for Forever from my library, but I am prepared to send the book back if it starts off the way Linger did. I refuse to suffer through another slow beginning. In fact, I’m prepared to start asking people to give me a run-down of the final book’s plot. I have too many other lust-worthy books to read this summer. No time for Twilight repeats.
I give Linger a 3 based solely on the ending. Otherwise, this would have been a 2 all the way through.

Linger has about a million awesome quotes for everything. So yes, I couldn't help but enjoy it. I loved the characters, especially the addition of Cole, he is awesome. I love how real their flaws and personalities are, it makes for a great book. However, I kept waiting and waiting for some kind of plot to happen, but it never really got there. The big reveal wasn't that big and took up all of 40 some pages. It is almost as if both Shiver and Linger were the setting of the stage for what is going to happen in Forever instead of stories with full plots on their own. I don't mind, it just isn't what I expected. Overall though I really enjoyed this installment and am eager to read Forever, so I suppose it succeeded in it's purpose.”

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

Was this review helpful to you? 
This book was just as good as Shiver but it wasn't as exciting at the start and the middle but the ending fixed all that up for me. It was such a spectacular ending, and I really wanted to read Forever but I had to wait a year for it to come out, as I read Linger two years ago and Forever only came out last year.

In Linger, its written in two more characters view, Isabel and Cole. I liked this because both were major characters and it gave more views on the whole story. My favorite character in this book is Isabel. Because she's not all weak like Grace, but she has a lot of power and strength, which made me like a her the most.

In 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 dangerous secrets. For Sam, it means grappling with his werewolf past ... and figuring out a way to survive the future. But just when they manage to find happiness, Grace finds herself changing in ways she could never have expected...

Linger is a great sequel to the heart-throbbing Shiver, and I was just blown away by the talent of Maggie Stiefvater.

It was a decent book, better than Shiver, but ch. 28 killed it for me. I am a huge animal lover and cruelty pisses me off, even when reading it. I didn't need to read the details of someone killing a deer by hand, it was just too much. I nearly put the book down at that point, but I hate leaving a book hanging. Taking a break before I read Forever, though it is on my shelf waiting.

Why, oh why, Maggie Stiefvater, must you reduce me to nothing but a soggy pile of tears? This book is truly a representation of what my love of books stands for. If someone were to ask for a book recommendation, I would give them this. And a box of tissues. I had a feeling the book would be sad from the beginning. After all, everything seemed a little too perfect. And then Grace started getting sick, which was suspicious. There were moments when I just wanted to slap Sam or Grace for being ignorant to Grace's declining health. I also wanted to slap her parents for being jerks. No, really.

This book introduces to us a new character: Cole St. Clair. I wasn't really sure what to think about Cole at first. Was he good or bad? He was probably as confused as I am. Cole is the leading singer of the boy band NARKOTIKA, but his fame has been hard on him and he's turned to drugs and sex. I disliked him at first, but eventually my heart warmed up to him. Of course, he's not as beautiful as Sam. 

I also warmed up to Isabel. A lot. She's such a complex character, and most of her feelings are hidden under that shell of hers. But she makes me laugh with her sarcasm and makes me cry when she shows she actually has a heart.

As for the Cole and Isabel romance thing, I'm not really sure what I want to happen. I think I do want them to work out. They both deserve happiness. And they seem pretty perfect for each other. The problem is, it'll be hard for them to ever express their feelings for each other. I think. Maybe they'll like each other too much.

Of course, there's the Sam and Grace story. They're going as strong as before, and even though they can finally be together after six long years, they're separated by not magic this time, but a (sometimes) aggravating small factor that's present in everybody's lives: parents. This goes back to why I wanted to slap Grace's parents. Thank you, Maggie Stiefvater, for giving us a perfect example of parental ignorance. Even if it's fictional.

This is a beautiful and mesmerizing sequel to the fantastic Shiver. Ms. Stiefvater has met my expectations and more. Her writing is so lyrical and poetic. I love her style. Forever comes out in July, but it seems like forever to me! Sorry, bad joke.

I liked Linger better than I liked the first book of the series, Shiver.  Linger was the continuation of the story of the wolf Sam and his girlfriend Grace and all their friends. In Shiver Grace tried to save Sam from staying as a wolf forever so they cured him and now he is human, so now he and Grace can be together. Things are not that easy for them though and they have to fight to stay together.  There were lots of twists and turns in this sequel that make it a fast and enjoyable read.

They've made Grace's friend Isabel a more important character in this story. Her character is a cold, angry snob but I actually enjoyed her.  She spoke what was on her mind and her emotions seemed real.  Then there are some of the newly created wolves like Cole and Victor.  Cole is disturbed and suicidal character, which is a lot like Isabel so they have a connection right from the start.


I thought Maggie did a better job at connecting you with the story Linger more so than Shiver. I felt the characters were more in depth and the story line just seemed to flow a lot better. There was again some sexual content in here that I could have lived without but it wasn't overwhelming in this book and for that reason I enjoyed it more. Great read.

Reader reviewed by RuthieI don't know what it was in this book that depressed me but when I finished it, there was nothing else I wanted to do but curl up in a corner and cry. The characters were so realistic, with very real problems that hit home for me. The paranormal aspects of this book were also very original. Everything in Linger was well-done, from the plot and setting to the cover and text ink used. However, I would like to alert the Shiver fans, this book was a touch darker.
