Review in my Merry Bookmas Week 1 Vlog

For years he had watched her from afar, waiting for her to join him in the woods as a wolf, but she never did. Years later he finally found her as a human and they thought they could finally be together. Now however, it is she that watches from the woods, torn away from him by winter and a wolf's coat.

His greatest fear was losing himself to the wolf inside, but now he fears he has lost the girl he loves to the woods and is being accused of murdering her. Her life now in the woods is filled with the longing for something more and the waiting for the winter to be over, as her future is lost to the uncertainty of the cold.

Meanwhile a former rock star is rediscovering life and love only now after he has given up on both. And a broken princess, whose brother's death has instigated the hunt for the wolves, will rediscover a meaning to life that was lost when she lost her brother.

Forever is a story of werewolves and love, but more then anything it is a story of Sam and Grace. The heart of this story is a couple who will never give-up on each other and never stop loving each other. A tender, heart pounding and unforgettable end to a series that has been so engrossing it will make you Shiver with longing when it's over. ( )

Forever follows four people Grace a logical and mature 17 year old who recently shift into a wolf, is in love with a previous wolf, and has aweful parents. Sam a gentle and quiet 18 year old, who is in love with Grace and previously a wolf. Cole, a former suicidal rock star who despite being a bit of a cocky jerk cares a lot for the other three. Isabel, a rich city girl who befriended Grace after her brother was turned into a wolf, and despite giving a selfish outer appearance is actually reliable and cares a lot about her friends.

After Isabel's brother Jack was bitten by wolves and later died in his attempt to reverse it. There father believes he was killed by wolves and wants them all dead. He manages to get an order out on them and the wolves are in the most danger they have ever been in. Knowing that time is running up they must find a way to save the wolves before they are all erradicated.

I love this series. I believe that Forever was meant to be a final book to a trilogy. However there was a fourth made which I will read soon and review at a later date. The complete opposites that the character have to each other help to balance out the book. Grace and Sam's loving, caring, and gentle personalities against Isabel and Cole's confident, exciting, and distant personalities. The book was a little slow in areas but not enough to bore, and the anticipation, thrill, and action were a real page turner. Couldn't book the book down for the last 100 pages or so. For a conclusion to the series it wasn't as satisfying as I would have liked but hopefully that will change with the fourth book. ( )

teen paranormal romance (werewolves). Have really enjoyed this series--ending was satisfactory and look forward to reading more from Stiefvater in her new series (with different characters). ( )

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Forever

Tom Culpeper will not rest until the wolves in Boundary Wood are dead. And this time he may get his wish. He’s petitioning to lift the protection off the wolves and wipe them out with an aerial hunt. With Grace in the woods, Sam and Cole must come up with a way to save the wolves on their own, but time is running out.

Even though as a whole I love this series, there were some moments in Forever that made me take away a star. Sam was less endearing in the third book. He was still fiercely dedicated to Grace, but his hesitation to help and make decisions without her made the story slow down. Beck raised him to be the new leader of the wolves, but I found Sam falling short of that title. Cole took up the mantle more often than Sam, even if Cole acknowledged Sam was higher in the pack.

Cole became the highlight of Forever. His character arc had an explosion of development as he struggled to become comfortable in his human skin. His life took on a new purpose and with it, Cole became someone that was damaged but fought to be a better person. A well-written redemption story will catch me every time, and Cole certainly redeemed himself in Forever.

There was also a tendency throughout the series to push aside secondary characters. While they at first seemed important to the plot, they were used and cast aside never to be seen again. But despite having characterization flaws, Forever is still an emotionally gripping addition to The Wolves of Mercy Falls. The danger to the pack has increased and lives hang in the balance as their time slowly begins to wind down. Revisiting this series was a walk down memory lane with characters that will forever be close to me. ( )
