Linger - Review


The longing.
 Once Grace and Sam have found each other, they know they must fight to stay together. For am, this means a reckoning with his werewolf past. For Grace, it means facing a future that is less and less certain. 


The loss. 
Into their world comes a new wolf named Cole, whose past is full of hurt and danger. He is wrestling with his own demons, embracing the life of a wolf while denying the ties of begin human. 

The linger. 
For Grace, Sam, and Cole, life is a constant struggle between two forces- wolf and human- with love baring its two sides as well. It's harrowing and euphoric, freeing and entrapping, enticing and alarming. As their world falls apart, love is what lingers. But will it be enough? 

If I could sum this book up into one word that would be spectacular! I loved this book so much that I found myself saddened that it had to end. This book leaves you wanting more and more and wanting to get your hands on the next book in this amazing trilogy, forever. 

The book continues a few months after shiver ended. Spring is on it's way, but its taking its sweet time on getting there. Sam is still finding it hard to believe that he's turned human for good and Grace is discovering that something is changing within her and she doesn't know what. 

Plot - ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ I thought the plot was amazing! It starts off where shiver ended and I was so happy that it did! 
Writing - ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ The writing was awesome as always! 
Characters - ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ I've got to say I missed Grace and Sam a whole lot and I was so excited picking up linger and reading were Shiver left off and to see what was happening with all the characters and wolves of Mercy Falls. 

Grace Brisbane - Grace is back and is ready to start her new life with Sam and look forward to her future with him. I enjoyed her character very much. She hasn't changed much, if at all, from shiver and I loved that. Grace is feeling something dark falling over her and waiting to be released. 

Sam Roth - Sam is extremely happy that he is not turning into a wolf and you can tell that by the way he is now living his life. He's ready to live his life and marry Grace, but when has anything been easy. Now with this strange unknown sickness falling upon Grace and their love is thrown through obstacle through obstacle. He will do anything to make things right so that he and Grace can continue living their lives the way they want. 

Cole St. Clair - Cole is a troubled and damaged soul. He want's nothing more then to leave his human life behind him and become a wolf forever. Cole is someone that wants to leave his life behind him and start a new one as a wolf, but it's not what he expects. Things become complicated and the thing he thought he wanted turns out to be totally the opposite. 

Isabel Culpeper - Isabel is her selfish self who says many true things in a very cruel way, but it's the truth none the less. She meets Cole and finds herself strangely attracted to him. Isabel wants to forget all that's happening around her, but she knows that's not possible so she lives with it all. The death of her brother, her parents fighting, and the wolves that were the cause of her brothers death even though she blames herself for it. She finds herself beginning the voice of reason and trying to bring everyone down to earth and trying to figure out whats going no with Grace and how to fix it.

Overall I give this book ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ - no more and no less!
