LoveReading View on Sinner

The stunning companion novel to the bestselling and acclaimed Shiver, Linger and Forever trilogy is the book that every Maggie Stiefvater and paranormal romance fan has been waiting for!  You thought it ended with Forever, but there's another story to tell - the one of Cole and Isabel...and this time they're in LA. There will be wolves, and there will be yearning. But most importantly there will be love. And no one does love like Maggie.  For all those new to Maggie Stiefvater's world then don't worry, Sinner can definitely still be read without having read the trilogy. 

A Message from Maggie Stiefvater “For me, finishing the Shiver trilogy was a bittersweet moment — I knew that I wouldn’t be returning to Mercy Falls once Sam and Grace’s story was over. But Cole and Isabel still lurked in the back of my mind. Both of them were only half-fixed at the end of the trilogy, and I wanted to know if they could be fixed the rest of the way.”


Sinner Synopsis

Everyone thinks they know Cole's story.  Stardom, addiction, downfall. Disappearance.  Only a few people know Cole's darkest secret - his ability to shift into a wolf.  one of these people is Isabel.  At one point they may have loved each other.  But that feels like a lifetime ago.  And now their paths cross again.  They have the power to save each other and the power to tear each other apart.  The only thing they know for certain is that they cannot let go.
