Series: The Wolves Of Mercy Falls (Book 1)
Synopsis: 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.
Review: Grace loves to look into the woods behind her house and watch the pack of wolves that live there during the winter, in particular there's one wolf with yellow eyes who she's always been strangely attracted to. But she always misses them during the long summer months when they seem to go somewhere else, that is until she sees a human boy with those strange yellow eyes, and realises there's more to the wolves in the woods than she thought...
I really enjoyed Shiver, I thought it was really well written and the storyline was great. It's kinda like what Twilight's Bella and Jacob would have been if there was never an Edward. Grace and Sam are interesting and well rounded characters, and I love how their relationship evolves over the length of the book, and I also really liked Stiefvater's take on werewolves, how their bodies automatically change with the cold rather than by the moon or by will. The ending was perfect for the story I felt, and I truly can't wait until Linger is released later this year. For me, this was one of the most enjoyable YA books I've ever read. Definitely one for fans of werewolf stories, or YA supernatural fiction.
