Praise for Shiver

A New York Times Bestseller

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2009

star “Stiefvater skillfully increases the tension throughout; her take on werewolves is interesting and original while her characters are refreshingly willing to use their brains to deal with the challenges they face.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

star “Told from alternating points of view, the narrative takes a classic Romeo & Juliet plot and transforms it into a paranormal romance that is beautiful and moving. Readers will easily identify with the strong, dynamic characters. The mythology surrounding the wolf pack is clever and so well written that is seems perfectly normal for the creatures to exist in today's world. A must-have that will give Bella and Edward a run for their money.” — School Library Journal, starred review

“After devouring dozens of fast-paced, very plot-centric books, you sometimes need to settle down and sink in to something slower and more contemplative. You need to be reminded that sometimes words can reach into your chest and wrench your heart.” —

Praise for Linger

A #1 New York Times Bestseller

A USA Today Bestseller

“This sequel’s poetic prose skillfully captures the four teens’ longings for love, forgetting, remembering, righting wrongs and life itself. The riveting ending will leave readers panting for the next sequel.” — Kirkus Reviews

“This riveting narrative, impossible to put down, is not only an excellent addition to the current fangs and fur craze but is also a beautifully written romance that, along with Shiver, will have teens clamoring for the third and final entry.” — Voice of Youth Advocates
