SINNER follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Shiver Trilogy.

found.

Cole St. Clair has come to California for one reason: to get Isabel Culpeper back. She fled from his damaged, drained life, and damaged and drained it even more. He doesn't just want her. He needs her.

lost.

Isabel is trying to build herself a life in Los Angeles. It's not really working. She can play the game as well as all the other fakes. But what's the point? What is there to win?

sinner.

Cole and Isabel share a past that never seemed to have a future. They have the power to love each other and the power to tear each other apart. The only thing for certain is that they cannot let go.

Review:

"Stiefvater expands on her bestselling Wolves of Mercy Falls novels with a side story built around Cole St. Clair, werewolf front man of the defunct band Narkotika. Now sober, Cole attempts to resurrect his career and his dysfunctional love affair with Isabel Culpeper, who's working retail in Los Angeles. From a vacuous live phone interview in the opening pages to the semi-trashy web series Cole winds up starring in, the glitzy, manic tropes of TMZ culture dominate. For the most part, attachment to these characters (and knowledge of their history) must be carried over from the original trilogy. But Stiefvater's talent for wordcraft and her powers of observation are as sharp as ever, and the L.A. setting gives her even more cause than usual to treat cars like characters. It's less a romance than a conjuration of the monolith that is mass-market entertainment, the trappings of fame, and the narrow spaces they leave for being human. Or wolf, sometimes. Ages 14 — up.

Sinner follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver Trilogy.

Everybody thinks they know Coles story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Coles darkest secret – his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago.

Sinner is for three different types of people: the people who loved the Shiver Trilogy, the people who didn't like the Shiver trilogy but love Isabel and Cole, and anyone else who doesn't know what the Shiver trilogy is about because you really don't need to know (though you do appreciate it more with that background information). Regardless, Sinner is a standalone companion that was definitely needed. It was in no way one of those spin off books authors write to just keep writing about the world they created. Sinner exceeded any expectations I had for it and blew me away.

It has been a while after the events of Forever, the last installment of the Shiver trilogy, and Cole St. Clair is ready to jump back into his music career and win the heart of Isabel Culpeper. This time around, Cole and Isabel's personalities are stronger and more defined. The story is more about their self discovery than about werewolves. The situations dealt with in Sinner were much more deeper and serious than in Shiver. Cole still feels suffocated by his past even when he's trying to escape, while Isabel is torn between what she feels and what she thinks she knows.

The story had such a different feel from Shiver that it felt like its own book, which I suppose it is. The little references from the trilogy were a very nice addition that made me feel nostalgic for Sam and Grace. Knowing their back story really made me love Isabel and Cole a lot more.

The writing of Sinner was fantastic. I could feel Cole and Isabel come out of the pages and seep into reality. They're such vivid characters, which made it hard not to become so invested in this story. There was not dry moment in the book. I just wanted to keep on reading and never have the story stop, even long after I finished the book.

Maggie did a wonderful job on capturing these two and the journey they go on. Cole and Isabel learned so much about themselves and each other that it made me really think about my own life and learn a bit about myself as well. Their story will definitely stay with me as one of my favorites and highly recommend companion novel.
