Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you’re trying to wean your teenagers off vampire romance, Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater is literary methadone, but has more in common with The Time Traveler’s Wife than Twilight. Yes, it’s a supernatural thriller, but refreshingly free of clichés…All consuming.” Sunday Telegraph (London)
“A lyrical tale of alienated werewolves and first love…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)
“Beautiful and moving…The mythology surrounding the wolf pack is clever and so well written that it 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
“Stiefvater is able to take their romance seriously without turning it into an overly brooding affair, and defines their interactions with a fresh sense of humor and playful back-and-forths. A ticking clock provides plenty of dramatic tension throughout, while elegant writing that is especially intuitive about the animal world sets this apart from the bulk of paranormal romances.” Booklist
Shiver is a teen love story that is difficult to put down, gently haunting its readers with the agony of lost identity and a hope for the impossible.” Children’s Literature
“Perfect for the Twilight fans or a Romeo and Juliet list. It is sensuous, intense, riveting, and so very satisfying.” VOYA
