In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. In Linger, they fought to be together. Now, in Forever, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.

Review: I liked this one, it was a great end to a lovely journey. Grace and Sam are such a cute couple, and I liked all the other characters as well.In this final installment the wolves are in danger of being annihilated. It falls to Sam to figure out how to save them before this happens, though he struggles with this choice because it will require him to do something he can't. Add to all this, he must deal with the fact that Grace is now a wolf. I loved the multi-voiced narrative, and they did an excellent job of translating this book to the make it just as good as reading it. Each narrator used their tone of voice and inflection beautifully for each of the characters. I must say that this is probably my favorite book of the series. I admit that while driving, I fell in love with Cole because he is the bad boy you want but don't need. Overall, great listen and I think with that ending the author could potentially continue on with their story if she chooses to do so. Great read!


  1. I really love this series. I'm always so greedy and hate for one of my favorites to end.

  2. It took me forever lol no pun intended to read the last book because I didn't want the series to end! I'm sad that this series has ended but I can't wait for more from this author.

  3. I haven't read the series. I think I've picked up Shiver a few times but never had time to read it. I guess I'll need to check it out again.

  4. I honestly did not like this story. The first book seemed so great, but I felt that it faltered after this. Thanks for sharing your review.

  5. How is it listening to a story as opposed to reading it?

  6. As a listener, you rely on the narrator to create the same feeling that the author gives with their words. If you don't like the narration, you will dislike the audio but not necessarily the story. I find that I am able to still visualize the story as I'm listening, so I still get a similar experience as if I was reading the book.

  7. i love this book ... but i haven´t listen ....
