Forever Review

Title: Forever
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Publish Date: Published July 12th 2011 by Scholastic, Inc.
The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stievater
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.

I was so excited to win an ARC of Forever and having it autographed to me was an extreme honor!! I was so excited to be able to read this book!!

Grace and Sam’s story starts with them apart, again. Grace as a wolf, Sam in his human form. Their relationship has had so many ups and downs. Sam continues on his everyday life, without Grace, and tries to handle all the stares and ridicule he receives. Everyone suspects him.

Cole has focused himself to finding a cure and keeps trying to call Isabel but she never returns his calls. He puts himself into his work, and sets up traps trying to catch the wolves, unsuccessfully.

Grace changes back and worth to wolf form and worries that the relationship with Sam might be in jeopardy. Sam realizes he needs to face his demons to continue on.

Isabel finds out from her father that the restriction on the wolves has been lifted and they are granted the aerial shoot to get rid of the pack. She goes to tell Sam and Cole, and they try to figure out what to do to save the wolves.

Grace and Cole both want to contact people that were important in their lives to let them know that there are well. They both battle whether it is the right thing to do.

This story had the book glued to my hands. It is so hard to do a review on a story that you loved so much…so anxious to find out what the ending will be, without giving away any spoilers. Maggie did not disappoint me at all at the end of the trilogy. My heart was pounding at the end.
