then.


When Sam met Grace, he was a wolf and she was a girl. Eventually he found a way to become a boy, and their love moved from a curious distance to the intense closeness of shared lives.

now.

That should have been the end of their story. But Grace was not meant to stay human. Now she is the wolf. And the wolves of Mercy Falls are about to be killed in one final, spectacular hunt.

forever.

Sam would do anything for Grace. But can one boy and one love really change a hostile, predatory world? The past, the present, and the future are about to collide in one pure moment - a moment of death or life, farewell or forever.

"I'm always sure of what I do" he said. "Sometimes I was just never sure there was supposed to be a happy ending" ----page 177

my thoughts:
Shiver was amazing. Linger was okay. But Forever? It was just...bad. I didn't enjoy it much at all. The story line was boring, and I didn't feel the same type of thrill as I did in Shiver, you know?

characters: Grace is boring. She's gotten boring. Sam is boring. But cute. Isabelle is boring. And infuriating. Cole is interesting. And funny. So yeah, Cole has more character than any other in this book. He's pretty sly, and tricky, and humourous. He was most interesting.

theme: the theme is pretty difficult to deduce from this book. It's so unique.....and complicated.

plot: Not interesting at all.

style: Unbelievably evident. I love how Maggie Stiefvater has this beautiful, lyrical way of writing. Sadly, she didn't quite get that awesome plot line that she achieved in Shiver (sorry I'm comparing all this to her first book!)

overall: Not really recommended...sadly.
