Review/Giveaway of Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Book Depository
*provided by Scholastic*

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 moved from a curious distance to the intense closeness of shared lives.
That should have been the end to their story. But Grace was not meant to stay human. Now she is a wolf.And the wolves of Mercy Falls are about to be killed in one final, spectacular hunt.
Sam would do anything for Grace. But can one love and one boy change a hostile, predatory world? The past, the present, and the future are about to collide in one pure moment - a moment of death or life, farewell or forever.

 I will be the first to admit, this book was very difficult to review! Between being conflict if I liked it or not, I really could not decide. This book had it all. Well developed characters, thought out plot, lyrical flow of words, and wolves. If you have not noticed by now, I love to read books with romance in it, even the tiniest bit. 
 With Grace now being a Wolf, it feels like if the script has been flipped. As if Forever is the opposite of Shiver. The problem, as it has been in every book, is always the hunters and the seasonal shifting. While Grace is running around in her wolf form, Sam is worried everyday that she does not pop up dead or ends up going too far.  Even through all these hardships, you can still feel their love growing stronger with each page. 
  What I really liked that Maggie added in to this book, was how Grace realized the reality of a relationship could not just be torn apart by death or the nature of wolves, but also in other ways. In a lot of YA books, it is mostly about Happily Ever After and " He is the love of my life". There is no sense of reality, like what happens after happily ever after? Not many authors, realize that not every couple are meant to be together
  This is a series I would recommend to a lot of Post-Twilight teens. This is the way a romantic teen novel should go! And there are no Sparkles.

After reading this review I'm interested in reading this series :) Also, I agree, not all couples are meant to be together and no supernatural creature should sparkle unless its a faerie of some sort.
