Review: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater


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

In Maggie Stiefvater's SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they fought to be together. Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.

This is the third and final book in this beautiful series. I really can't describe it any other way than that. Beautiful. Maggie Stiefvater really gets into the heads of her characters and lets you see what all is in there too. I could feel what they were feeling. The emotions are so real and relatable that it made me want to cry sometimes.

Maggie's writing style is very unique. Her descriptions are casual yet insightful and thought provoking. Reading her book is like listening to a song that resonates for reasons you're not even sure of. It's a love story that sets itself apart from others because it is so deep and honest. I think we all want to have a love like this story.

It had been awhile since I'd read the first two books and I was worried I wouldn't remember everything, but the reader is seamlessly reminded of any details they might have forgotten. I'm not going to give any details away, but if you liked the first two books you won't be disappointed by Forever.
