The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2

by Maggie Stiefvater

Stay A Little Longer!

When Sam lost his wolf skin for good it was a miracle, one too good to be true, one that he was thankful for everyday as it brought him closer to the one he loved; it brought him closer to Grace. Being with Grace was the only future Sam could see for himself, the only future he wanted. But just when he thought that future was within his grasp, everything began to fall apart.

Grace had lost Sam in the past to the cold and the woods, she had watched as his eyes watched her through the face of a wolf. But now Sam was Sam, a boy, human and going to stay that way. Now they could be together, or so they thought. Grace has to fight not only those around her but her inner wolf if she is to hold on to the boy she loves. But it is getting harder and harder to stay with Sam, and to stay as Grace.

Linger is a thrilling tale of loss, love and change. After risking all to find each other Sam and Grace now have to fight with everything they have to stay together as it seems the world is conspiring to tear them apart. Sam has taken on new responsibilities and with them new fears, while Grace is facing new challenges and deadly new dangers. For Sam becoming a wolf is all in the past, for Grace becoming a wolf is her future. A beautiful, raw and emotional look at love, wishes and werewolves.
