“This second book in The Wolves of Mercy Falls series is no less magical than the first, Shiver. Sam is trying to adjust to being a full-time human and the leader of the pack of winter wolves as an early spring thaw occurs. Some of the new members are having problems, and Grace seems to be suffering from the same sort of illness. The sense of a 'ticking clock' is prevalent in this book, and the cliffhanger ending will have readers baying at the moon, waiting for the next installment!”

The astonishing #1 New York Times bestselling novel!
Once Grace and Sam have found each other, they know they must fight to stay together. For Sam, this means a reckoning with his werewolf past. For Grace, it means facing a future that is less and less certain.
Into their world comes a new wolf named Cole, whose past is full of hurt and danger. He is wrestling with his own demons, embracing the life of a wolf while denying the ties of a human.
For Grace, Sam, and Cole, life is a constant struggle between two forces--wolf and human--with love baring its two sides as well. It is harrowing and euphoric, freeing and entrapping, enticing and alarming. As their world falls apart, love is what lingers. But will it be enough?

Praise for Maggie Stiefvater:
"If Shiver left fans wanting more, Linger will have them begging." -Romantic Times
* "Beautiful and moving...The mythology surrounding the wolf pack is clever and so well written that it seems perfectly normal for the creatures to exist in today's world. A must-have that will give Bella and Edward a run for their money." - SLJ, starred review
* "Stiefvater leaves the faeries of Lament and Ballad for a lyrical tale of alienated werewolves and first love....her take on werewolves is interesting and original while her characters are refreshingly willing to use their brains to deal with the challenges they face." - PW, starred review
"All readers will be able to enjoy Stiefvater’s fast-paced storytelling and dedication to the old-fashioned art of creating a believable and enduring romance. Shiver is beautifully written, even poetic at times, and a perfect indulgence for readers of all ages." - BookPage
