Summary: SKIP THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE OTHER BOOKS!

"In Maggie Stiefvater's SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they fought to be together. Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in."
(Summary via Barnes and Noble)



Review: (It's safe now.)
I have to say that this is the best book I've read in a long time. I'm just in love with Stiefvater's writing style. It seems to go beyond prose and dip into a poetic sort of form. All the characters were amazing; they were layered and realistic, possessing the flaws that real people have. Even the love story was believable, and in a lot of YA novels, it often isn't. The Wolves of Mercy Falls series were everything you could want in a series of books. The last novel Forever is the conclusion, the ending, the good-bye. The ending to the novel is just open-ended enough to let the story of Sam and Grace continue on in your mind. You can totally imagine the world going on. I have to admit that I did get a little emotional at the end. But that was because I was so attached to the characters. I can't wait to lose myself in the next world of Stiefvater's creation. If you haven't definitely check this series out. You won't be disappointed.
