I just love those books and can't wait for the next one to come out!

At first i was indecisive wether or not i should read SHIVER. i was so happy i did. Of course for me i was a little unsure about vampires and werewolves. This story is nothing like that. Its a love story, a love story with a twist. And not only do you fall inlove with all the characters but you see the story from their perspective. And it helps you understand the story so much better. At some parts you get so sad, others happy, and just about everything inbewteen. When LINGER came out i went absolutly crazy, another great book from MAGGIE STIEFVATER. and i expect nothing less from FOREVER. I cant wait and hope this won't be the end of SAM and GRACE.

I was excited to read Forever but sadly I didn't love it as much as I loved Shiver and Linger. The first 200 pages were long and nothing much happened. I felt the beginning of the book was a very long summary of the first two books. However not everything was bad. I liked how Cole and Isabel's relationship developed better than Sam and Grace's. We know Sam and Grace love each other and the only thing stopping them from being together is Grace being a wolf. Nothing else develops between them because is established since book one that they are going to end up together. So that brings me back to Cole and Isabel. Their relationship is far from perfect because of the way they are. Cole is more free spirited and basically he doesn't give a damn about anything except finding a cure to bring Grace back to her human form permanently. Isabel is a brat sometimes and still suffering from her brother's death. Their personal issues and demons from the past are not allowing them to be together. It was nice to see them growing up and change not only for each other but for their friends too. The ending was a good way to end the series. I wished there was more to it than how the author decided to end it. To me there is more to be written about the Mercy Falls wolves. Maybe a short story letting us know what's up with the character?

Why leave such a huge and unresolved ending? Well that completely sucked. What the heck happens to Cole and Isabel? Are Grace and Sam living on the peninsula or what? So many questions left unanswered....and that is the end?

I loved reading Forever but for me it felt more like another installment rather than a conclusion. I was actually left with more questions seeing as (in my opinion) the ending didn't resolve everything I was hoping it would. I love how Maggie upped the stakes by making the wolves hunted, therefore, it gave the characters added pressure in trying to find a resolution to their plight. I loved the chemistry between Isabelle and Cole. I also enjoyed the evolution of Cole from suicidal to becoming the person he was always meant to be. But, of course, I can't forget about Sam and Grace. They have a love that transcends all things. It is pure in it's innocents and all consuming in their devotion to each other. Grace and Sam are two halves of a whole. They do not work well without each other. When they are together they are capable of great things whether it be for each other or the pack. The ending left such a wide door open (in my opinion) either for a fourth book or a possible spin-off for Isabelle and Cole. If this was supposed to be the last book I wish Maggie would have closed the door tightly and sealed up any cracks that were left over. With that being said, I really did love reading Forever. Yes, I had some ending issues but, if you are a fan of this series like I am, reading this book is a MUST. On a scale from 1-10 I give Forever a 10. Just because the ending wasn't as I had hoped it still didn't take away from how great a book I thought it was. Everyone needs to run out and pick up a copy of Forever. If you are new to this series you really need to pick up a copy of Shiver, and Linger on your way to picking up Forever.

I fell in love with these books over the summer. I can't wait for this one to come out. And can i just say that the cover of this one is genius, with the role of the two changing.

Best book ever

I loved this book but I did not like the ending. Please don't tell me this is the end. I would really like an after story. The last two sentences bothered me so much. Sam, Grace, Cole, and Isabel had such a hold on me. I would really like to know if Grace went to college or if she even lived. I wanted Sam and Grace to be together. I need to know about Cole and Isabel's standing relationship and if they will make it work through visiting or by cellphone. I was just so emotionally gripped by the characters that the ending upset me. If there's not going to be an after story then make a spin off or something. I just want more Sam, Grace, Cole, and Isabel. I loved the trilogy so much but I don't want it to end like this. This is the saddest, most tragic,most romantic, most confusing, most upseting cliff hanger that I have ever read. I loved everything but I want answers.

Ok the first 2 books were really goood but this one seemed like a last ditch effort youre better off just reading the first two

The final chapter in the Shiver series will leave you with a sense of closure yet craving more because of how much you have bonded with each character. The series has stayed with me and is perhaps one of my favorite collections yet. I can't give this book series enough praise.

I was reading some posts and I read one were someone said this was like the seventeenth book in the series, but it is not! They also said that they had stopped reading this series at the fourth book, but this book is only the third in the series, so they are a total liar!

Read.This.Series. It's honestly the best series I've read. You can feel the emotions the charactes feel. It's like you are in the book, witnessing what's all happening or you are going through what's happening. Beats all other 'werewolf' books I've read. I wish it didn't have to end. I want to know more about Cole and Isabel and I would love to know if Grace is cured at the end and her and Sam live forever happy, but I guess I can imagine what happens which isn't that bad of an idea. :) Maggie Stiefvater is one amazing author. Please read this, you won't regret it. I promise.

NOT worth it. I am sooooo disapointed. Maggie.... just stop writting. Learn when you're ahead and back off. I think the end was to set up another book. I wont read it. Stop at Linger. Makes the series better.

The best possible conclusion to the world's #1 best seller Shiver series. Grace has now transformed into a wolf for the winter, forgeting Sam and Cole and Isabel. But she becomes human and finds Sam once again. Cole is looking for a cure, to this disiese as they think of it. But they find out that the wolfs will be air hunted, killed from the saftey of a plane. Little do thiey know that they will be killing many people that have the unfortunite fate of turnning into a wolf. Now its up to Sam, Grace, Beck, Isabel, and Cole to stop this before the get hurt, but will they make it in time?This is one of the most amazing books I have ever read, because its not just about werewolves, its about the things we feel and think about.
tjsjohanna on LibraryThing 10 months ago
This was a mostly satisfying conclusion to the series. There is an element of racing against time, as things are heating up in town for Sam and the wolves. I found Cole and Isabel to be an nice foil to Sam and Grace, proving that love comes in many forms and it doesn't have to look the same to still be meaningful. The part I wanted was a definitive answer to the mystery of the werewolf disease. But instead Ms. Stiefvater leaves the reader having to do as Grace says at the end - she "trusts him" and the reader must too.
