Editorial Reviews

Rick Walton
This is the kind of book I loved to read when I was a kid--lots of humor, lots of suspense, fun characters, but not too intense. Just the right blend for that kid that wants a fun, exciting read, without the risk of nightmares.
Carole Thayne Warburton
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Wenger provides plenty of humor along with suspense.

    Great for Younger Kids

    I adored Shiver and Linger, the first two book Wolves of Mercy Falls series, and I¿ve been looking forward to reading Forever for awhile. Only, I didn¿t love Forever the way I did the previous two and I can¿t exactly explain why. It might be because I tend to like the first few books in a series way more than I like the last one. That aside, Forever seemed to lack the magic, the je ne sais quoi, that had made me swoon over the first two.

    So what was it that I didn¿t like? Hmmm. It wasn¿t the writing. No, Stiefvater¿s prose were as eloquent as always and the tone continued to be distinctly bittersweet with a hint of melancholy. The characters were their usual selves. Sam was a poetic, loyal, and charming boyfriend while Grace remained cute, smart, and independent. Their roles were reversed this time and it was interesting to see the difference in their perspectives. Isabel and Cole were the same, fickle and snarky, yet at times redeemable. Nothing changed there. The overall story was good and intriguing. I honestly can¿t think of any other way it could have gone.

    Maybe I didn¿t like the way the story told. It started off slow and then seemed to drag a little. I felt generally unhappy while reading it. If there were moments of happiness they were quickly ushered out to be replaced by serious, sad ones. Don¿t get me wrong, I don¿t expect everything in a book to be happy and perfect all the time but I missed having moments that made me smile or laugh. There were some of those moments, but they were rare and I can¿t think of any off the top of my head. The ending also lacked luster and things didn¿t feel wrapped up.

    If you have read the first two books in the series, you definitely should read Forever. I recommend rereading parts or all of Linger before reading Forever. I wish that I had. I still gave Forever four stars because I still liked it. The overall story was good and as usual it was very well written. I love Maggie Stiefvater and it pains me to say anything negative about her stories but I was really hoping for a lot more.
