July 2010 Book of the Month.

This is the heart-wrenching sequel to Shiver, which has surpassed all sales expectations on both sides of the Atlantic. It’s compelling, romantic and absolutely addictive. Yet again Maggie has delivered a beautifully crafted and haunting love story that will have you captivated from the first page to the last. Fans of Twilight will devour it in a sitting if they’re given a chance.

Synopsis

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

In Shiver , Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger , they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping dangerous secrets. For Sam, it means grappling with his werewolf past ...and figuring out a way to survive the future. But just when they manage to find happiness, Grace finds herself changing in ways she could never have expected...

Reviews

Praise for Shiver:
‘A truly engrossing novel about star-crossed lovers who would do anything to stay together. A magnificent and haunting love story’ youngscot.org

‘An engrossing story of teenaged love. Humourous and witty with wry observations of suburban existence’ Books for keeps

‘Shiver has a sense of unfolding mystery, a genuine quest and threats from humans and wolves alike’ Observer

About the Author

Maggie Stiefvater

Maggie Stiefvater is a twenty-seven year old writer, artist and musician. Her debut novel, Lament: The Faerie Queen’s Deception, was published by Flux in 2008. She lives in rural Virginia, USA, with her husband and their two young children. As well as being an author, Maggie is an award-winning artist and plays several instruments including the Celtic harp, the piano and the bagpipes. Maggie says her greatest literary influences for Shiver were Crow Lake and The Time Traveler’s Wife “because they tell quiet, bittersweet love stories.”

Maggie Stiefvater on Maggie Stiefvater:

All of my life decisions have been based around my inability to be gainfully employed. Talking to yourself, staring into space and coming to work in your pyjamas are frowned upon when you're a waitress, calligraphy instructor or technical editor (all of which I've tried), but are highly prized traits in novelists, musicians and artists (I've made my living as one of these since I was 22).

I now live an eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia, with my charmingly straight-laced husband, two small kids, two neurotic dogs, one criminally insane cat and a 1973 Camaro named Loki.

I'm an avid reader, an award-winning coloured pencil artist and play several musical instruments, including the Celtic harp, the piano and the bagpipes. I also make great cocktail party conversation.
