Shiver (Wolves of Mercy Falls #1) - 5 Stars

Shiver  - Maggie Stiefvater

I absolutely loved this book and I was quite surprised that I liked it as much as I did.
This is the first book I have ever read where it is solely focused on werewolves so I didn't really know what to expect.

Sam, a werewolf has always watched Grace, the girl he saved from his pack years ago. She should have transformed into a wolf when she was bitten but she didn't. Does this mean that there is a chance for him to change back to human so he can finally be with the girl he has loved from a far?

I really didn't expect the book to be quite as heartfelt and emotional as it was. I always expected a werewolf book to be quite violent and about the werewolves embracing their nature, I didn't expect to find such an emotional story of how the wolves don't want to be wolves, all they want is to be human.
I really love Sam, he is such a great character and everytime he said something I just wanted to hug him, more than anything I was praying that he could find a cure and find a way for them to be together.

I really loved this book, it was incredible and I can't wait to see where the story goes from here.
