The amazing, haunting Shiver trilogy is complete!

shiver

Sam's not just a normal boy - he has a secret. During the summer he walks and talks as a human, but when the cold comes, he runs with his pack as a wolf. Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house - but never dreamed that she would fall in love with one of them. Now that they've found each other, the clock ticks down on what could be Grace and Sam's only summer together.

linger

Can Grace and Sam last? Each will have to fight to stay together - whether it means a reckoning with his werewolf past for Sam, or for Grace, facing a future that is less and less certain. Enter Cole, a new wolf who is wrestling with his own demons, embracing the life of a wolf while denying the ties of being human. For Grace, Sam, and Cole, life is harrowing and euphoric, enticing and alarming. As their world falls apart, love is what lingers. But can it be enough?

Shiver started out strong. Maggie's idea of "werewolves" was a very interesting and unique take on the mythical creatures. The idea that temperature affects when they shift intrigued me and I loved how the temperature was indicated at the beginning of each chapter. Having that additional knowledge while reading the book added to the overall feeling and anticipation of the story. Sam and Grace and their whole relationship, however, is what really made this book great. From their first encounter to the last page of the book, you could not help but root for them. There was not a moment I felt they didn't belong together. Individually though, they are very interesting characters. Sam has a very tragic backstory while Grace had a very negligent upbringing by her parents. From start to finish I was very invested in Sam and Grace's relationship.

Linger introduces the beloved Cole St. Clare, as well as the additional character point of view of Isabel. Isabel definitely plays a larger role in the story than in Shiver. Like Sam and Grace, Cole and Isabel have very distinctive and strong personalities, however what you see isn't always what's really underneath. This makes their relationship a complete opposite from Sam and Grace. This was also the point in the trilogy when every adult becomes the worst parental figure in town.

Forever is the last in the trilogy, and by this point I didn't feel like there was any big build up for this last book. The antagonists are much more apparent as the story comes to a climax, and at the end for the big finale, but the threat didn't feel as serious as it should have been. We get to see a lot of character development from our main four. We see them coming to terms with all the things they were faced within the last two books, however somethings were't quite as resolved in the end. As a result, the ending is left very open, which isn't a bad thing considering there is a companion novel, Sinner (knowing who it is about is bit of a spoiler if you haven't finished the trilogy yet).

Although I did enjoy the books, the series overall wasn't as satisfying as I wanted it to be. Not much happened until the end of the books, and I felt it was only okay for the first book since it was revolved mostly around Sam and Grace's relationship. Once they moved past that development, the story became more about the scientific aspect of the werewolves. It was only until the end of Forever, where we truly faced the antagonists of the story. Isabel and Cole were the stars of the story and the main reasons I enjoyed the trilogy as much as I did. In the end, it was a good read and I am glad I gave the books a chance.
