About the Author
Maggie Stiefvater is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the novels Shiver, Linger, Forever, and The Scorpio Races. She is also the author of Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception and Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie. She lives in Virginia with her husband and their two children. You can visit her online at www.maggiestiefvater.com.
Gr 9 Up-The tale of Sam and Grace is continued in Maggie Stiefvater's sequel (2010) to Shiver (2009, both Scholastic). For the moment, Sam is no longer a werewolf, but a semi-whiny, angst-ridden teen. Grace may or may not be a werewolf from a bite she received as a child, but her headaches are worsening. Deeply in love and committed to one another, Sam and Grace continue to experience the ups and downs of teenage life and being kept apart by Grace's parents. Meanwhile, Isabel is drawn to a newer pack member, Cole St. Clair, all around bad boy. Each chapter alternates between the points of view of Sam, Grace, Cole, and Isabel. The four narrators do a fine job of depicting each character. The audiobook opens with a fairytale-like musical prologue by Stiefvater which sets the scene wonderfully for the beginning of her tale. The last disc features two bonus tracks written by the author to enhance the world of Mercy Falls: "The Golden Woods" (the song first heard on Disc 1 but played here in its entirety), and "One Happy Day." The movie rights for Shiver have just been bought, and Forever, the third title in the series, is scheduled for release in July 2011-so Linger is sure to fly off the shelf.-Amy Olson, formerly Lexington Public Library, KY (c) Copyright 2011.

Praise for Maggie Stiefvater: "If Shiver left fans wanting more, Linger will have them begging." -Romantic Times* "Beautiful and moving...The mythology surrounding the wolf pack is clever and so well written that it seems perfectly normal for the creatures to exist in today's world. A must-have that will give Bella and Edward a run for their money." - SLJ, starred review* "Stiefvater leaves the faeries of Lament and Ballad for a lyrical tale of alienated werewolves and first love....her take on werewolves is interesting and original while her characters are refreshingly willing to use their brains to deal with the challenges they face." - PW, starred review"All readers will be able to enjoy Stiefvater's fast-paced storytelling and dedication to the old-fashioned art of creating a believable and enduring romance. Shiver is beautifully written, even poetic at times, and a perfect indulgence for readers of all ages." - BookPage
