Grace is: kind of lonely, living a quiet life with her distracted parents near Minnesota.  As a child, Grace was attacked by a pack of wolves but miraculously survived unharmed.  Now she watches the wolves in the woods beyond her home with fascination, especially one with piercing yellow eyes.

Sam is: leading a double life.  In summer he is the cute boy with strange eyes who works in the bookstore where Grace hangs out.  In the cold winter he must change.  The coming chill marks his transformation into a wolf.

Tragedy brings these two together and they fall in love.  But Sam can't stay human forever, and the summer is drawing to a close.  Will they find a way to be together?  This is a delicious summer treat for all fans of paranormal romance.  Shiver is beautifully written, fast paced and full of twists and turns.

Breaking news!! According to Maggie Stiefvater's website,, Shiver has been picked up by a major film studio and looks like it will soon be a movie.  So, if you were the director, who would you cast as Sam and Grace?

By the way, the second book in Maggie Stiefvater's The Wolves of Mercy Falls series is Linger, and watch for the third book Forever to come out soon!
