Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death closes in.
I wish I could write like Maggie Stiefvater.
I could easily leave this review at that, but I shall elaborate.
Generally, I'm not much of a fan of paranormal romance. When I hear 'paranormal romance' I think of Twilight and Fallen and books with dark covers and people with serious expressions on their faces on the cover. Forever, like both of the other Shiver books is nothing like this. Aside from the beautiful writing, the book presents a very different, new take on the werewolf story. In Shiver, why Sam and the others turned into wolves was a bit of a mystery, but in Linger it began to be looked at as more scientific, and the same happens in Forever, as Sam tries to get Grace back, and Cole risks his life to find the cure.
Of course, there is the romance, (what book called 'Forever' wouldn't have romance?) but it isn't the clichéd love triangle, or the girl falling for the dark stranger. The two romances in this book have a realness to them that far exceeds the normal YA romances. You want the characters to find each other, and you want a happy ending. There aren't characters which you are supposed to like but instead are annoying, rather ever character serves its intendd purpose. I'll acknowledge that I did enjoy the parts of the book narrated by Cole and Isabel respectively more than the parts narrated by Sma or Grace, but that was probably because there were more developments between these two characters.
Forever wouldn't be half as good as it is if Maggie Stiefvater wasn't such a brilliant author. The style if beautiful, and she is able to combine well timed humour and a serious, sad story in a way that makes Forever a sparkling example of YA fiction.
Forever is an amazing book for all teens that like romance and a bit of fantacy. It is third in the seris and they are all as good as each outher. I really recomend this series for people who liked twilight.
For years he had watched her from afar, waiting for her to join him in the woods as a wolf, but she never did. Years later he finally found her as a human and they thought they could finally be together. Now however, it is she that watches from the woods, torn away from him by winter and a wolf's coat.
His greatest fear was losing himself to the wolf inside, but now he fears he has lost the girl he loves to the woods and is being accused of murdering her. Her life now in the woods is filled with the longing for something more and the waiting for the winter to be over, as her future is lost to the uncertainty of the cold.
Meanwhile a former rock star is rediscovering life and love only now after he has given up on both. And a broken princess, whose brother's death has instigated the hunt for the wolves, will rediscover a meaning to life that was lost when she lost her brother.
Forever is a story of werewolves and love, but more then anything it is a story of Sam and Grace. The heart of this story is a couple who will never give-up on each other and never stop loving each other. A tender, heart pounding and unforgettable end to a series that has been so engrossing it will make you Shiver with longing when it's over.
