I actually read this book for the first time last Fall, but I thought that with the sequel Linger coming out in a few months that it would be a good time to post a review (plus I am currently rereading it for the third time). Shiver is amazing! This was the first book that I had read by Maggie Stiefvater and I instantly became a fan. The transitions in narrator point of view gave an interesting flow to the story. Grace has been longing for her yellow eyed wolf since she was eleven and had been attacked by his pack. Grace does not have much memory of the attack by the wolf pack or how she was saved but ever since she saw the yellow eyed wolf she has felt drawn to him.
Sam waits for Grace every year, watching her from the woods that he and his pack call home for the cold winters. Sam is only able to be human in the warm summer months, but even that is slipping away. This will be his last transition from wolf to human and then he will lose Grace forever unless they can find away to stop it.
Grace and Sam have loved each other for years and despite the odds that are put against them they are determined to find a way to make it work. This book is full of passion, humor, sadness, and keeps you turning the page into the early morning hours.
