new_user Pretty resounding recommendation. :)

Jan Lewis, Author Sidekick I agree 100% with you. Have you read her other books? Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception isn't as good as Shiver, but it's still very good. I haven't read the sequel Ballad: The Gathering of Faerie yet.

Hehe, yeah. I stand by this one 100%! :P.

Kelly I read Lament and did not care for it as much. It was good but I am not a huge fairy girl.


message 6: by Karina (new)

Karina I agree entirely. Shiver was my fab book of 2009 with Graceling falling as second.

I enjoyed Lament despite not being into fairies. I'm having trouble getting into Ballad simply because it's from another POV and I don't really care about him, so yeah...


message 7: by Jessica (new)

Jessica I also agree entirely. The book was well done, well thought out and written. Everything needed was there. Romance, mystery character development, character attachment. It was beautifully done through and through. It's this type of book that should truly make readers become more aware, not the muddle the Twilight series is. That gets way more amp than it derserves, unlike this quiet jewel.

Beccy I've been dying to read this book, it looks really good! Still waiting for copies to come into the store they've sold out and can't find it anywhere :(

Oh, Well I will defiantly have to read Graceling then!

Amanda I haven't finished the book just yet but I will tonight or tomorrow and I just started it last night. I loved your review. and agree with you on the writing style. It truly is very beautiful and you can almost hear a poetic melody while reading it. I know that may sound silly but I have a great love for the words as well as the story. Anyway.. I just wanted to say I'm glad I am not the only one who sees how great the writing is.

message 17: by Brandi (new)

Brandi Terral I couldn't agree more with this review! I was trying to think of what I was going to say about this book and you just took the words right right out of my mouth. I absolutely loved "Shiver" and could not put it down. Truly an absolutely amazing read that I would recommend to EVERYONE!! Seriously, an absolute standout book

Patricius I like your review. Two thumbs up! ;) great.


message 19: by Patrisha (new)

Patrisha Really? I hated it! The whole book was a joke!


message 20: by Gwen (new)

Gwen Haaland I first started listening to this audio-book with my teen daughter on a car trip. I must say I thought it would be mediocre like Twilight. Amazingly, it was much much better than the former. The writing was lovely and evocative, the fleshed out main characters were more real, so romantic, one could sense the pure love (not based on looks) but sensing the two main characters were soul mates, a stronger more capable independent female main character seen in Grace (and not in Bella) and on and on. 4 stars in my book! (Twilight earned only 2)


message 21: by Melanie (new)

Melanie I haven't looked back at this review in a very long time, but I'd like to thank all the positive responses I've accumulated. They really made me smile tonight! :] I think I may need to do a re-read and relive the magic of this book! <3
