Linger By Maggie Stiefvater

This is a Review Of Linger By Maggie Stiefvater.

Description: This is the story of a boy who used to be a wolf and a girl who was becoming one.

Just a few months ago, it was Sam who was the mythical creature. His was the disease we couldn't cure. His was the good-bye that meant the most. He had the body that was a mystery, too strange and wonderful and terrifying to comprehend.

But now it is spring. With the heat, the remaining wolves will soon be falling out of their wolf pelts and back into their human bodies. Sam stays Sam, and Cole stays Cole, and it's only me who's not firmly in my own skin.


I read shiver last year and i couldn't wait until the sequel, Linger came out so i pre ordered it, it arrived, i read it and now im reviewing it, i have to say that this is a good book, i enjoyed it but i felt that it dragged on a little bit with not a lot happening. But there were some things which made up for problem of the length, i will tell you about these in a minute.

Ok so Linger, continues where shiver finished, sam had been cured well so they thought, and Sam and Grace were still more in love then ever but Sam starts to worry about the new wolves that Beck infected, he wants to know what they are like and why Beck infected them at all. While Grace has a fever which is a lot more than just a fever and she knows what it is and so does Sam but they don't tell each other because they can't cope with saying goodbye again, i won't say anymore because i don't want to spoil it.

Grace, is still the girl we met in shiver but shes back and she is a lot more rebellious then before which is all good but she is ill but only, a few of her friends know whats happening and this would be, Sam, Cole and Isabel. Sam is still the yellow eyed cute guy that we all fell in love with, and hes even more caring in this one, and we just have to feel sorry for him when some of his past memories resurface. Then Isabel is back and she is still the bitch from before but we see her more vulnerable then before as she copes with her feelings for Cole and the death of her brother. Then there is Cole, who is the new boy, the new wolf and at first Sam is curious to why Beck would choose someone like him, but later on we find out that he was once a rock star and a druggie and he just wanted to escape form everything. And this is where we see Cole as fragile as he comes to terms with everything as he decides he does actually want a new life and hes been given one but hes been wasting it, so nearer the end he helps Sam and Grace when she is seriously ill. And then we find out he is a science genius like his father, and he has a big role in the ending, but i won't say anymore. But a Hot rockstar who is a science genius, Wow Maggie you have made a brilliant character which i think many girls will love.

Now i have just written that and actually thought about the book i have to say that i really enjoyed it and that Maggie Stiefvater has created another book which is brilliant and will be enjoyed by a lot of people, and i really can't wait to see what happens in the third and final book, Forever, which is out next year. But i really do recommend that you go out and buy Shiver (the first book) and then enjoy Linger as it is a good book and a good read but i will say that at some points in the book you may need tissues.
