in Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past...and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves...and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.
At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love - the light and the dark, the warm and the cold - in a way you will never forget.

What a wonderful sequel! It continues the story of Sam and Grace, but also introduces new characters and expands upon supporting characters from the first book in the trilogy, Shiver.
The writing seems a little darker in this book, so I wouldn't recommend it for younger listeners, but it does reflect the general theme of Linger, growing up and maturing.
I can't believe that a book which concerns werewolves and a rock star seems so real and immediate, but not far fetched! This can only be due to the quality of the writing, but also the quality of the narration, which is again faultless.
I cannot wait for the final book in the trilogy - Forever - due later this year - if it continues with the same quality it will be superb.
