Shiver – Maggie Stiefvater

Posted by Laura on January 7, 2010

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater (pronounced “Steve-Otter” according to her website) is the first book in The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy.

Grace lives with her neglectful parents on the edge of a wood in Mercy Falls, Minnesota.  Living in the wood are wolves.  When she was younger, the wolves attacked her as she was playing on the swings.  One wolf saved her from the others and since that time she has been fascinated by her wolf with the incredible yellow eyes.

And the wolf?  The wolf is fascinated right back.  And he isn’t always a wolf.  In the heat of summer he is a young man named Sam but when the temperature falls, he is the yellow eyed wolf who is drawn to the girl he once saved.

When finally, finally(!) they meet there is no denying their feelings for each other, and Sam must fight against the falling temperature to keep himself from turning into the wolf.  Because each year a person changes into a wolf it is harder to turn back into a human and this may be Sam’s last year.

Book two is due out in July 2010 and will be called Linger.
