The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stiefvater.
When Sam met Grace, he was a wolf and she was a girl. Eventually he found a way to become a boy, and their love transformed from curious distance to the intense closeness of shared lives. That should have been the end of their story. But Grace was not meant to stay human. Now she is the wolf. And the wolves of Mercy Falls are about to be hunted in one final, spectacular kill.
Sam would do anything for Grace. But can one boy and one love really change a hostile, predatory world? The past, the present, and the future will all collide in one pure moment - a moment of death or life, farewell or forever.
I was given this book to read and didn't know anything about it except from the blurb on the back cover. There was nothing on the cover stating that it was the third book of a trilogy. I discovered this looking at the pages at the back of the book that advertised other books written be Maggie Stiefvater.

I found it slow to get hooked into this book. I had set myself a goal of reading night pages a night to ensure I reviewed it quickly. To start with this was a challenge. About half way through the book I found myself hooked. I had a couple of very late nights as I couldn't put it down.

To friends and enemies alike, it looks as though Tom Thorne's career is on the skids. Depressed by the recent loss of his father and berated for seriously overstepping the mark on his last case, he's been encouraged to take 'gardening' leave. For an ambitious detective - especially one without as much as a window box - it's a fairly dire situation.
But not as dire as the situation for London's homeless. Three men, sleeping rough on ... more...
