Wow... I was so excited for this book, and for a good reason it turns out! I really like Shiver a lot and was very excited when I learned there was going to be a sequel to it. Linger is just as good as Shiver and adds even more emotional and stressful situations. Linger adds more to the story line by introducing another character that was briefly in Shiver. Cole, one of the new werewolves struggles with himself and why he chose to be a werewolf. He finds he struggles with who he is, was and going to be. Isabel and Cole find that they have some sort of connection, maybe not the same as Sam and Grace but something might be there? Shiver had two perspectives of Grace and Sam, and I loved that. Linger not only still has Grace and Sam's point of view, but Cole and Isabel tell their part of the story as well. I thought maybe it would be hard to follow with so many characters, but it really wasn't. It all wove together seamlessly. I was really surprised with where this book went with the story line... just when you thought in the last book they had things figured out... it really wasn't! I found as I got further into the book, I couldn't get through the pages fast enough! I was struggling with trying to take everything in because I was so excited and nervous about what was going to happen next. Very good read! I love werewolves and Maggie Stiefvater really put a good spin on these ones... I LOVE THEM... With the way this book left off, I am not so excited about having to wait until July of 2011 for the last instalment "Forever".

The love story between Grace and Sam continues in this sequel to Stiefvater's SHIVER.

With new points of view from Isabel and a new character, Cole, LINGER is full of new complications and unexpected dangers.

With their future uncertain, Grace and Sam struggle to find a way to stay together. The new trouble brought by Cole isn't helping. To top it all off, something is terribly wrong with Grace. There's only one way to save her, but will Sam be strong enough to do it?

It's hard to write a review of this book without giving too much away. I adored SHIVER and didn't think I'd like LINGER as much. Happily, I was wrong. I love the new addition of Cole's character and the complications and situations he brings to the story. This story will LINGER in my mind as I wait for FOREVER.

I was recommended these books and thought they were alright. However, it felt very juvenile to me, the love story and whatnot. I wouldn’t buy them again.

Format: Paperback
Maggie Stiefvater's second novel in the Shiver trilogy continues with the love story between Grace and Sam--human and werewolf. Starting out, it was pretty obvious the direction of the book was going--back into werewolf territory and I wasn't sure I wanted that to happen. For one thing, it made the book and its conclusion slightly predictable and for another, it was going to throw a wrench into Sam and Grace's already tortured relationship. Bah. Teen romances!

I have to say that I did like Shiver better than Linger. Shiver had me hooked onto every word. This book had a different kind of suspense that was more akin to dread than suspense. I dreaded what I knew was coming in the end and it was just a matter of pages before the inevitable happened (no spoilers here). I'm not really a fan of books like that. I like to suspect, but not KNOW. I never flip to the end or peek. I like to suspect or think that I know, and then I like to have the world ripped out from under me. Okay, that's a little dramatic, but I hate being right about a plot point that's painfully obvious to me. Especially when Shiver seemed like it was going to be obvious and then did a fantastic job with building up to a fantastic cliffhanger. Linger had fewer twists and turns and that was a slight disappointment.

I do appreciate Stiefvater's development of the adult characters in this book. At one point, Grace's parents catch Sam sleeping in their daughter's bed and they throw him out, ground her--do the whole parental thing. I couldn't help but applauding the parents in this teen romance novel. Thank you for finally being aware that your child is doing something wrong (no matter how sad we are that the sexy supernatural love interest has been booted out and we get less of the couple being together and adorable).

I ravenously read Linger as soon as I was done Shiver because I HAD to know what happened! Maggie Steifvater has a fantastic imagination to have written a book with such fantastic characters that I have fallen so completely in love with.

Linger is full of ironic twists that make you love it! Maggie builds more on the characters giving Isabel more depth than thought possible! From Shiver one would feel that Isabel is the typical California girl who has been forced to live in a tiny town and she seems to be a right wench. Linger picks up right where shiver leaves off and it's wonderful.

I found the first book made me cry and this one made me so sad but it was a good sad. You feel the characters emotions and you grow to like the new characters because they grow on you. I really hated Cole at first but now I like him because of the way Maggie gives you many small glimpses into his world.

The one thing that I did not like about the book was the fact that I spent the entire book wondering about Olivia's whereabouts. Despite that the book was very well written. It made me want to read more but since was nowhere near a library I had to wait.

The ending of this book was incredible and it was crazy because there was a hospital, blood, wolves, and an escape through the window! It was the kind of ending that would leave a person open mouthed and needing to read the next book! I am happy to say that I now have Forever and I can’t wait to read it! Also, just like Grace, I too wish to have a red coffee pot but I'd use it for tea.
