Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)

This book was borrowed from a friend.

Grace and Sam share a kinship so close they could be lovers or siblings. But they also share a problem. When the temperature slips towards freezing, Sam reverts to his wolf identity and must retreat into the woods to protect his pack. He worries that eventually his human side will fade away and he will be left howling alone at the lonely moon. A stirring supernatural teen romance.
I know this book has been very active in the reader's scene, in fact for the most part I have had nothing but fabulous reviews, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about.
I was excited to get the book, Finally, I would have a chance to delve in and see what has everyone so fascinated about it.
Unfortunately the book was just not for me. The point of view switched way to much for my taste and it seemed like the characters were just a little to bland. I am a believer in love at first sight but I don't think it happens as intensely as possible right off the bat.
It was beautifully written, reminding me more of the epic poems then an actual story.

I did think the take on werewolves was unique and I enjoyed the fact the author decided to go a new direction instead of following the every day shifting part.
