Maggie Stiefvater captured our attention (and launched our love of werewolves over vampires) with her New York Times bestselling and award-winning novel Shiver. Now she’s back with the second book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series — Linger. Read on for more on this summer must-read, movie news and our incredible Linger Book Party Giveaway.
Linger: August book pick
Linger, the sequel to Shiver, just came out from Scholastic Press and is our pick for the hot book of August.
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 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 Isabel, 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.
