Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “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.”

    School Library Review (starred review)

  • “This sequel’s poetic prose skillfully captures the four teens’ longings for love, forgetting, remembering, righting wrongs and life itself. The riveting ending will leave readers panting for the next sequel.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “If Shiver left fans wanting more, Linger will have them begging.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

    " I am really pleased I continued with this trilogy, unlike some Shiver did not grab me at all and this sat on my shelf until I was prompted to read it as I knew another risi member had it on their wish list and I wanted to share it. I was pleasantly surprised and will now have to source and read Forever! "

    " I enjoyed reading Shiver so much that I couldn't wait to read Linger the second installment, unfortunately this book was a disappoint. I couldn't finish reading Linger I became bored of it and I felt like either Maggie just gave up on this book or she lacked on creativity. I didn't care reading Forever either. "

    " Wow, the ending startled me.. I forget how to breath at the end. Poor Sam, he tried his best to become a human, unfortunately his human girlfriend turned into a werewolf. I wonder what is book three going to be like. Looking forward to book three of this series, Forever. "

    " I thought this book was really boring. Also I didn't really enjoy the first one either. I just couldnt find any other books to read so thats the only reason I picked it up. I wasn't even able to finish this book. Also for some reason it was kinda depressing. "

    " This book was good but it seemed a little similar to Shiver only it was in reverse. I think there is only one book left and I hope there is some kind of happy ending for them in human or wolf form. I did like the new character of Cole though and getting to know Isabel better. "
