For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can’t seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human … until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It’s her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human—or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Quotes & Awards

  • “If you’re trying to wean your teenagers off vampire romance, Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater is literary methadone, but has more in common with The Time Traveler’s Wife than Twilight. Yes, it’s a supernatural thriller, but refreshingly free of clichés…All consuming.”

    Sunday Telegraph (London)

  • “A lyrical tale of alienated werewolves and first love…Stiefvater skillfully increases the tension throughout; 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 Journal

  • “Stiefvater is able to take their romance seriously without turning it into an overly brooding affair, and defines their interactions with a fresh sense of humor and playful back-and-forths. A ticking clock provides plenty of dramatic tension throughout, while elegant writing that is especially intuitive about the animal world sets this apart from the bulk of paranormal romances.”

    Booklist

  • Shiver is a teen love story that is difficult to put down, gently haunting its readers with the agony of lost identity and a hope for the impossible.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Perfect for the Twilight fans or a Romeo and Juliet list. It is sensuous, intense, riveting, and so very satisfying.”

    VOYA

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A 2009 Publishers Weekly Best Book for Children's Fiction

    " The good thing is I like the book cover, can't say much about the story though. It was okay in the beginning but towards the end my interest in the book wavered.. "

    " I have to admit, I was really looking forward to reading this series by maggie Stiefvater. I ready the Raven Boys and loved it!! This series not so much.... I think the basic plot and idea are good, but the excution of the whole book is not! The characters are just blah and have no real depth. "
