Book Review: Forever by: Maggie Stiefvater

Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 3)Publisher: Scholastic
Publish Date: 12 July 2011
Origins: Purchased/Publisher for Review
Format: Hardcover
Series: Wolves of Mercy Falls: Shiver (1), Linger (2), Forever (3)

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.

I am of two minds about this book. I feel like the series could have ended better and I also feel the book was beautiful. I mean, Ms. Stiefvater writes so beautifully, very poetic, but the ending to a series I have been in love with for years now fell short.

I still enjoyed the characters in this story, as I always have, but there didn't seem to be any resolution in quite a few situations. I felt that I needed a more solid ending, not so much of what my mind could make up for these characters. I wanted a more solid solution for most of the characters. 

I do have to say the way Ms. Stiefvater went with a few things surprised me, I was sad on a few parts, but I didn't feel the depth of emotion I usually do while reading her work. I do have to commend her for her gumption. 

My recommendation is to read the book, it helps to close the series, even if it is not the best book in the series. I can't wait to be wowed by Ms. Steifvater in the future.
