Description

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf - her wolf - is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: in winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl; in summer, a few precious months of being human... until the cold makes him shift back again.


Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human - or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Review quote

"A must-have that will give Bella and Edward a run for their money." -- School Library Journal "Shiver is beautifully written, even poetic at times, and a perfect indulgence for readers of all ages." -- Bookpage "If you are a fan of Twilight, then you will love Shiver. Beautifully written, with alternating chapters from Grace and Sam's points of view, this a wonderful debut." -- The Observer "Shiver has a sense of unfolding mystery, a genuine quest and threats from human and wolves alike." -- The Sunday Telegraph "For years, Grace has been fascinated by the yellow-eyed wolf that saved her from its pack when she was a child. Sam, bitten by a wolf as a boy, is that wolf. Long obsessed with each other at a distance, they finally meet after a wolf hunt (inspired by the apparent death of a local teen) sends a wounded and temporarily human Sam into Grace's arms. Their young love is facilitated by Grace's hands-off parents but threatened by two linked crises: the fact that Sam will soon lose the ability to become human and the instability of a new lycanthrope. Stiefvater skilfully 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 "As if high school weren't already hard enough without adding werewolves to the mix! This earnest teen romance is presented alternately from Grace's point of view and from Sam's, so Jenna Lamia and David Ledoux trade off narrating duties. It's an effective technique for the audio format. At one point in the story, Grace describes Sam and "the soft, sad shape of his lips, looking just like his voice sounded," which is also a pretty good description for how Ledoux sounds. His funny, appealing, sometimes-wobbly voice is especially appropriate for a conflicted teenaged guy who also happens to be a werewolf. Occasionally overwrought or treacly, SHIVER is sure to appeal to fans of TWILIGHT and other paranormal teen fare." -- AudioFile Magazine

About Maggie Stiefvater

All of my life decisions have been based around my inability to be gainfully employed. Talking to yourself, staring into space, and coming to work in your pyjamas are frowned upon when you're a waitress, calligraphy instructor, or technical editor (all of which I've tried), but are highly prized traits in novelists, musicians, and artists (I've made my living as one of these since I was 22).

I now live an eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia, with my charmingly straight-laced husband, two small kids, two neurotic dogs who fart recreationally, and a 1973 Camaro named Loki. Jenna Lamia brings a fresh, captivating voice to the audiobook world, and with only a few audiobooks under her belt she has had amazing success. In 2003 she was an Audie Award Finalist in the prestigious category of Best Female Narrator. David LeDoux has narrated several audiobooks for which he has won several Audie Awards.
