Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

by Maggie Stiefvater


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.


It's been months since I finally broke down and read Shiver and I'm still not sure what to say about it. I had heard so many amazing things about it, but I didn't expect what I found inside the pages.

I don't really like "werewolves" and I'm not sure why, I think it began with Jacob in Twilight (sorry Jacob fans, I like him but am Team Edward all the way) and so I was tentative to read a werewolf book simply because I wasn't the biggest fan, but now I am glad I did.

I loved Shiver, and can't wait to read the rest of this exciting series. The idea I felt was incredibly original, the idea that temperatures had a play in the shifting made it seem more believeable and the emotions that went around with that had me intrigued the entire book.

Grace and Sam were great characters, I felt the connection between them and they played off each other well.

I recommend this to anyone who loves wolves, werewolves, or love.
