Shiver & Linger : Books One and Two of the Wolves of Mercy Falls Series by Maggie Stiefvater

I love this series. I've already read the first two books twice and can't wait for the third book to come out. Stiefvater puts a surprising spin on the whole werewolf phenomenon. I don't want to spoil it so I'm not going to write about it here. In the first book the story is told by Grace, a high school student, and Sam, a bookstore clerk, in alternating chapters. Just when the plot seemed to be all wrapped up with a happy and satisfying ending, in the final few pages Grace goes through a life altering change thus leaving us hanging on for book number two where the series continues and new characters are added to the mix. It isn't just the fun stories that lead me to like this series. Stiefvater's writing is often beautiful and poetic. It appeals to all of the senses so you can smell what the characters smell and really feel their pain and happiness. This series is geared toward young adults, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
