I am so excited to have Yiota from Splash of Our Worlds guest blogging today! So, without further ado....
Hi! I'm Yiota, one of the authors atSplash Of Our Worlds! Firstly, I would love to thank Brandi for letting me have a guest post at her blog! This is really great. I will review Shiver, exclusively for her. She picked the book from ourLibrary, and I am more than happy to review it. If you have time, go and check our blog as well:)
Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—watches back. He feels deeply familiar to her, but she doesn't know why. the heat.
Sam has lived two lives. As a wolf, he keeps the silent company of the girl he loves. And then, for a short time each year, he is human, never daring to talk to Grace...until now. the shiver.
For Grace and Sam, love has always been kept at a distance. But once it's spoken, it cannot be denied. Sam must fight to stay human—and Grace must fight to keep him—even if it means taking on the scars of the past, the fragility of the present, and the impossibility of the future.
brief summary by me
Grace, is in love with the wolves. Even when they attacked her, she still loves them. Then she meets Sam. Who is a wolf. After years, they met and now everything is going wrong. From the wolf pack to their normal friends,problems appear. And they have to struggle to stay together as well. The book follows the start of their story from the POV of both, Grace and Sam. Action,love,friendship,fear are all part of it. Pro's: What i liked with Shiver most, was the story itself. I find it pretty interesting and unique. It gives at the wolfs a different side and different transformation "ability" than we are used to.Wolf transformation really is a curse in this one. Plus, it has some really good intense scenes. Characters play between life,death,love,hate and you really don't know what will happen next which makes you to read and read...And talk about a cliffhanger! Probably one of the best cliffhangers i have ever read! I was like "what? you kiddin me! it ends?" Con's: One big negative thing. The second characters are not will described. Grace and Sam were explained perfectly,you understand them. The rest characters not so well. The book is circling literally around Sam and Grace. Even when there problems with other characters, still you see the problems of Sam and Grace in them. Is just i would like to know more on the rest wolves and Grace's friends so i can have a better of their world at my head. Recommend to: Everyone who likes fantasy romance would enjoy it.And then to everyone who wants a break from the vampires and angels world, it's a really good escape! Stars: Hmmm...since there is no 3.5..i would go with 4 ;)
