In deinen Augen (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3)
The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stiefvater
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.

Endings. They are melancholy, bittersweet things – farewells to stories and characters, worlds and words, victories and defeats. Sometimes as a reader you just do not want to meet the end, but you must. You must. That is your duty as a reader, especially if you care anything at all for the story you happen to be reading.
But what makes me dread endings? Ah, my answer is simple: the cha...more

This is a difficult review to write, mostly due to the fact that my fists are clenched with the need to punch Ms. Stiefvater in the face. Seriously. Plus, it's actually taken me a few days to stew on and eventually digest the strange roller coaster ride which is Forever.
So what happened? Well, there were some pacing problems. Big ones. At times the story seemed to get bogged down and Ms. Stiefvater's normally melodic prose became a little heavy handed....more
I got this book by accident, and when I found out it was about werewolves, I didn't want to read it. But the cover (the uk cover) was so beautiful that I couldn't help but read it.
I fell in love with the book and its fluid plot line along with the gorgeous descriptive writing from Sam's ey...more

Shiver tears my heart in two every single time I read it. I felt Linger had its problems, mostly in the diluted narrative with the addition of two more POVs, but it was still extremely moving and I wanted to see what happened next. How strange it is, then, to read Forever and experience nothing even close to the emotions the first two books inspired.
The Wolves of Mercy Falls series is love story told almost like a fairy tale. Aside from...more
My initial rating for this book was 4.5 stars. Then, while I was trying to write a review (I say trying because all my attempts have been pretty unsuccessful by my standards), I just went ahead and changed it to 5. It felt like the right thing to do. I suppose it would be easy enough to start pointing out flaws, complain about this and that, compare this book to Linger and especially Shiver, but I don’t want...more
First and foremost, To Whomever wrote that synopsis or whatever up at the top, "thrilling" is not a word that I would use to describe the first 250 pages...
Basically, I did not like this installment. More often than not it was a bore and a chore to get through. And I hate typing that! Shiver is still one of my favorite novels ever, and I did enjoy Linger, though not quite as much. This whole series and its progression really got...more
To say I was disappointed in this book, the conclusion to one of my favorite series (okay, really just book, as I had a really hard time with Linger), is almost giving it too much credit. Disappointment carries with it some emotion, and the problem I had with Forever--much like I did with Maggie's latest, The Scorpio Races--was that I just didn't feel much of anything from it.

Ew. Red font. :\ Blue was okay, green was bearable, but red? It's hard to stare at red and watch it turn into black like green and blue do. -.- A...more
Shiver was a difficult toil for me, but the ending captured my heart and held it. I fell for Linger right away, probably due to Cole and Isabel, and the further development of Grace and Sam's relationship. It's all so heartwarming, so poetic and beautiful.
And yet - I fear for this one.
I've read some worrying reviews. I'm afraid that, if I read this, not only will the trilogy finally be over, but I won't be happy with the resolution. I'm afraid that it'll lose the...more
I got to page 68 before deciding not to continue. The story was going nowhere for me; nothing was happening. Very slow beginning. I still needed closure so I hit up a friend and she told me what happens. Let me just say, that if I were to have actually read the entire book myself, I would have thrown the book at the wall.
(view spoiler)[There is no clear-cut ending. It's left completely open. I don't get invested and read a trilogy for a non-conclusive endin...more
Why hold on tight when you know you have to say goodbye? Maggie Stiefvater’s Forever is a goodbye to the world of Mercy Falls. I am not good at goodbyes. Well…screaming-slam-the-door-in-your-face type goodbyes…those I can do. :) Saying goodbye to people I love is another story. I loved Forever, but it did not have the same power as Linger or Shiver had over me. But perhaps I did not let it get too close. I knew I had to let go.
That said…let’s get to the love! All four points of view captured my...more
I won't write much about this book, mainly because I don't feel like it... I just came back from school, so...
BUT STILL AWESOME!! Beautiful as always <3
How am I to put this? ...Pretty much everyone that knows me well also knows that I love the Wolves of Mercy Falls. I loved Shi...more
This is going to be an incredibly difficult review.
Shiver had me interested, however it wasn't my favourite, Linger was even better and again, Maggie had me a snivelling wreck throughout the book. As for Forever? Oh, I wanted to love it, I really really did. There were bits I loved but honestly, my emotions were ALL OVER THE PLACE whilst reading that I just can't love it the way I loved Linger especially.
Forever explores Isabel's and...more
Actual rating: 3.5 stars
In a recent Q&A discussion, Maggie Stiefvater mentioned that she loves to write books that will make you cry your little eyes out. And I did...for Shiver. I'm not sure what it is, but Linger and Forever just did not string up the same emotions. Did I enjoy them? Sure. But the magic just wasn't there like it was in Shiver.
Forever picks up a few weeks after the events in Linger. Sam is pretty much going through the motions until Grace shifts back into human form. The n...more
I honestly don't know where to start in a review of this last book in this beautiful trilogy. How to explain what is so compelling about the story of Sam and Grace along with those who surround them, especially Cole and Isabel. I've tried to figure out why this story affects me so deeply. I know it is the writing which is impossible t...more
Writing this review is so difficult for me because of how much I'm crying right now. I finished this book only minutes before I can't even begin to describe how much my heart aches right now. I've never been one for instalove stories. I don't believe in corny gushy romance or the whole teens in love forever and ever thing. But I found this story a summer ago and it has stayed with me this entire time. This emotional, powerful, and lovely tale of a boy, a girl, and another boy and another girl.
At the same time beautiful and painful, Forever is an incredible climax to Maggie Stiefvater's werewolf trilogy. I went into the story ready for closure, but I found something even better: a novel so captivating that I didn't want it to end.
You can't argue that Maggie Stiefvater's writing is brilliant. The way she describes scenes and especially emotions makes the story so tangible that you could imagine the absurdity of the existence of werewolves...more
I actually rate this book 4.5 stars. Just to make it clear. :)
To start with, I hated the plot. I hated it. It was not an epic adventure, it was not non-stop action, it was not swoon-worthy...more
Forever is the final book in The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. It was a good ending, although not as satisfying as I would have hoped. It still left a few things unresolved so I didn't feel any closure at all. Maybe she wanted to leave...more
Are you kidding me? That's how it ends! UGH!!!
Now as you can see above, I was not happy after finishing this book. I do love the series and I really love the characters that Maggie created. I enjoyed most of the book. Actually I enjoyed a lot of it. I just was completely thrown with the ending. I understand some books end and leave the reader to make-up what they will of how they think it ended. It works with some books. Some books fill finished in that way. This is NOT one of those books....more
1. the pace of the book is really slow because it's seems to be dragging on and on and on... waiting for Grace and indecision that's the main theme. the lack of action is killing my patience in the end. It's seems Cole is the leading character now because he's the one that making all the story, and i also kinda missed Isabel...
2. the end of the book itself is disappointing because i think Stiefvater tried to be...more
Then I read Forever. And in this heart-wrenching rea...more
