In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other.  Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack.  And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.

My Thoughts:

Linger picks up nicely where Shiver left off. Written in the same captivating style as the previous novel, it was everything I was expecting it to be and more. The addition of being able to see the events unfold in the eyes of Isabel and Cole and intriguing dimensions into the plot.
A very engaging story and despite some slow areas in the middle it ended fantastically and left me eager to find out what will happen in the next installment.
