In Linger, Sam and Grace are celebrating Sam’s new lease on life. If anything, Sam is almost overwhelmed by a human future that includes winter — or for that matter that he has a future as a human at all. Grace is just content to be with Sam; at least, until she is forced to face something she has never encountered in her whole life. She starts getting sick. No one can figure out what is wrong with her, but something definitely is.

This book has all of the suspense of the first one, yet still manages to throw in a few surprises. The first is a few new first person characters, like Isabel (from the first book) and Cole. He is one of the new wolves that Beck recruited at the end of the first book. Cole is an interesting character not only because he chose to become a wolf, but also because he had been a famous rock star at one point. This brings a whole new level of danger to the werewolves’ secret.

I would recommend this book to anyone 13 & up with the obvious caveat that this book cannot be read if you haven’t read the first one. This book is too reliant on events from the first book for someone to merely pick this one up and understand what is going on. However, since I enjoyed (and recommend) the first book, I can’t imagine anyone wanting to just read this book as a stand alone.
