I’m am a very happy to say that I have finally got the chance to read Forever by Maggie Stiefvater! As a fan of this series, and someone who loved the 1st and 2nd books, I was very excited to dive into Forever. This is a great series because not only is there a cute adorable romance, which I always love, but it is a fantastic read for those of you who may be in a reading slump.
The series overall is not too complicated. Plot wise, character wise, and overall story wise, this series is a fun and lighthearted read. Don’t get me wrong! This isn’t a sappy, just “okay” book. I can tell you right now, prepare to be addicted!
I really enjoyed Forever and I got through it in just 2 days! It was fast paced, funny, sweet, and still had those elements of excitement, stress, and complete surprise; that we have all felt with YA books before!
For anyone interested in this series I strongly recommend you go and pick it up today! It is defiantly worth the read, and have a fun experience while doing so. For fans of this series who haven’t got their hands on Forever, let me tell you, you won’t be disappointed.
I don’t even know where to start with this book! All the elements of this story are what I really love in a relaxing and fun to read novel. Stiefvater did a fantastic job of wrapping up this series, and she even put a bow on top!
The beginning of the book for me was interesting because it opens up with Grace and her thoughts about becoming a wolf. It made me sad how scared she was, but I loved her determination to get back to Sam. That really warmed my heart.
I felt as if the world was against Sam and Grace in the beginning because as we all know, twice, not once, twice; we find ourselves in the same situation. Grace becomes human, she calls Sam, by the time he shows up, Grace is back to wolf and gone! That frustrated me but we all know, the world, even in books aren’t perfect. Authors love to play with our emotions.
Finally Sam and Grace are re-united. I was really happy about that and that moment was perfect. When Sam and Grace get to catch up and just be with each other, I loved those, moments.
Things cannot always stay sane sadly. We learn Tom Culpeper has convinced most of the town that the wolves need to be taken care of, which essentially means to kill them. This is problem not only for all the wolves, but for our main characters.
With Grace turning uncontrollably, the hunt for the wolves is dangerous. And no one except Sam is able to keep his thoughts together as a wolf. This means he must lead the wolves to safety. But of course how can this work, Sam as we believe has been “cured”. Not only are we trying to figure out a cure, and how the wolf gene works, but now we need something to make werewolves trigger their werewolf side.
Leave it up to Nick St. Claire. A boy performing science experiments, who’s not actually a scientist. I had faith in Cole, though. And in the end he came through. We are able to turn Sam into a wolf and save the werewolves of Mercy Falls.
I really enjoyed reading more about Nick, and especially his relationship with Isabel. I look forward to reading Sinner which is more about Nick and Isabelle. I think they have funny and romantic relationship that will be really enjoyable to read.
Stiefvater ended this series perfectly, and I really enjoyed this book. It was a great conclusion to the series and the series as a whole was great.
I’m really happy I had a chance to read this series and a chance to know these characters. I hope you readers like me have enjoyed this series and are excited as I am about Sinner!
Overall I would give this book a 4 star review and can say with absolute clarity, that I loved this series and book! It was a fantastic read and a spectacular journey. I will greatly miss Mercy Falls!
