REVIEW: Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars, Genre: Fiction/ Young Adult/ Werewolves, Pages: 386, Level: Easy

Book Description from Barnes & Noble:

The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stievater.


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 transformed from curious distance to the intense closeness of shared lives.


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 hunted in one final, spectacular kill.


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 will all collide in one pure moment – a moment of death or life, farewell or forever.

Forever is the final book in a trilogy about werewolves. The hunt is on. Isabel’s father is trying to organize a hunt to eliminate all of the wolves. Sam and Cole are trying to hunt down Beck and find out how to move the pack to safe territory. Sam and Grace’s relationship is as strong as ever and Cole and Isabel’s relationship is rocky as ever. Cole continues to search for a cure.

First I should reiterate that I do not enjoy the werewolf sub-genre. I read this series because a good friend recommended it and after reading the first two, it felt like a waste not to finish out the series. So take that into consideration when reading my review.

I was a teenager once and I remember how stupid I was. But really? First there is the poetry. Then there are the music lyrics. GAG! I understand how this stuff would be attractive to teenagers but as an adult… I could easily cut 100 pages out of this book and make it more enjoyable.

If werewolves are your thing, give it a try. It continues to get good reviews and apparently, I am in the minority.
