Eima Rating: 10 out of 10
Okay everyone. After being overwhelmed by reading a lot of series type books that you just can't put down (i.e. Twilight, House of Night, Wicked Lovely) , this is the kind of book you have got to pick up and read. There's no left over questions, no lingering void of having to wait for the next one to come out. This was great.
One word, werewolf. I know, I know, you're tired of werewolves, vampires and other freaky people. But seriously guys, Stiefvater puts a whole new spin on the idea. Grace, the main character in the book has always watched the wolves that come around her house, especially the one with beautiful yellow eyes. You see when she was younger, she was attacked by these wolves - which technically means she too should be werewolf, but....she never changed.
Stiefvater creates a werewolf in which it's not anger that triggers their metamorphosis - but a change in temperature. Apparently the wolves in this book become furry and wild with the onset of winter, however come spring time, they are fully functioning teenagers or young adults who hold jobs and go to school.
The story is about the connection between Sam (werewolf) and Grace; and what they would do to save each other, even if it means death. Absolutely a wonderful escape!
