Hey guys! I'm almost done Forever, the third book of this trilogy but I thought it would be a good idea to do my review on Linger before I know all that happens in the end. WARNING: There may be some spoilers in this if you have not already read Shiver.
Linger was really impressive. I normally don't enjoy the 2nd book of a series for some reason, I think it's because they never really truly live up to the 1st. But Linger was so amazing, I almost loved it more than Shiver. It was a lot more suspenseful, but not in a 'scary' way. There was a lot of dramatic events that happened in this book that seemed to tie it together quite nicely considering that now we have four characters we follow, instead of just Grace and Sam. We get to see a lot more of Isabel, Jack's younger sister and we also meet Cole. Cole was one of my favourite characters in the end of this book, but it took me a while to warm up to him. Cole is one of the new wolves Beck created, but for some reason he can't seem to stay a wolf for very long, even though that's what he wants. I loved the tension between Cole and Isabel that started really fast within the novel. It was nice to have a different type of romance in the book, instead of the perfect charming romance of Grace and Sam. (I don't mean to say that their relationship is perfect, because obviously... it's not, considering the events that pass through the book.) There is A LOT of stuff happening with Grace's parents once they start to realise how serious Grace and Sam are, but they don't want to believe it. Plus, there's ever the question of why Grace isn't a wolf.
Linger was definitely great, I don't know how I'll be able to decide which of these books was my favourite! As soon as I'm done Forever I'll post how I liked it and I'll try and decide which one I liked the most! If you've read these books comment below and let me know how you liked them!
Have a great day!
