Sunday Sequels (5)

Sunday Sequels is one of my newest memes. Every Sunday, I'll post covers, news, or other stuff about sequels in a popular series. This week, I'm going to talk about Linger, the sequel to Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I haven't read Shiver  yet, but I've heard that it's a wonderful book. 

For those of us who haven't read Shiver yet, I've decided to post information about it as well.

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Release Date: July 20, 2010
* Spoiler alert. Nothing major, but I was afraid to read it for fear of ruining the first book. Just letting you know.....

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.
At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love — the light and the dark, the warm and the cold — in a way you will never forget.

I LOVED Shiver, but have read some disappointing ARC reviews for Linger. It won't keep me from supporting the author and reading it anyway. I think she's a great descriptive writer.
