“Lyrical and elegant in its style, the tale of Sam and Grace unfolds as if it were always written, as if fate had decreed this ending from the first page of the very first volume. . . . Drawing on the strong foundation of the previous two books in the trilogy, Forever is a fitting if bittersweet ending to a love story of paranormal proportions.”
It all began with Sam and Grace. Each spring, a young Grace Brisbane carefully watches a yellow-eyed wolf and longs for her love to return to her in his human form.
Almost magically, Sam and Grace find each other in a time of togetherness—the sweet taste of first love. They become like one with a need for each other that is almost unbearable in its hold on their hearts and minds; however, that moment seems to be gone before they can even begin their love story.
As the graceful final chapter of The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy unfolds, readers will find the roles reversed, as an all too human Sam longs for Grace and the love they once shared. Grace is now a wolf at the mercy of the elements—and their enemies. Is a happy ending waiting for these star-crossed lovers? Or will tragedy prevail?
In Forever, Sam finds himself fighting to not only save Grace from the darkness that comes with wolf form, but also to rescue her and the entire pack from the danger that now lurks in the woods they once called home.
An outcast wolf and the cold machinery of man threaten the Boundary woods and the wolves who reside there. As Cole St. Clair hunts for a cure for their lupine transformations, an old foe has returned with a new plan of extermination. Tom Culpeper still seeks revenge for the death of his son, and will stop at nothing to kill the wolves he thinks responsible for his family’s loss. Meanwhile, Isabel Culpeper must come to terms with or fight against her own father, bringing about the end of her closest friendship and destroying her chances at her own love.
The multilayered story of Mercy Falls and its lupine residents continues in its previous fashion as Maggie Steifvater tells the story through her strong four main characters. Sam, Grace, Cole, and Isabel each bring a unique personality to the table and keep readers enveloped in the story and its poetic beauty.
As in the first two books, the depth of the characters’ individualism keeps readers glued to the page. Lyrical and elegant in its style, the tale of Sam and Grace unfolds as if it were always written, as if fate had decreed this ending from the first page of the very first volume.
Once again, Maggie Stiefvater has realized the plausibility of anthropomorphized werewolf existence both normal and magical, while taking readers on a journey hard to forget. Drawing on the strong foundation of the previous two books in the trilogy, Forever is a fitting if bittersweet ending to a love story of paranormal proportions.
