From a dazzlingly talented young writer, a haunting and original supernatural romance in the vein of TWILIGHT.

FORMAT: 9 CDs, Unabridged
NARRATORS: Jenna Lamia & David Ledoux

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.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krista Wiser | 1/31/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carmen Ortega | 1/18/2014

    " Okay book... It's romantic, but also dark. It kind of plays into the werewolf cliche a bit. This book falls into the middle of the pack. "

    " It's like Twilight but with a stronger heroine and better writing.
    The wolves are a bit original, but overall, if she had adopted a stronger plot, the story might be saved and the cliche of it all wouldn't be so defined...
    It was an OK read. "
