Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy











{September 11, 2014}   {Review} Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #4)

SinnerFrom Goodreads: A standalone companion book to the internationally bestselling Shiver Trilogy.

Sinner follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver Trilogy. Everybody thinks they know Cole’s story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But 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 even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel’s life. Can this sinner be saved?

I am sorry to say that this novel just isn’t for me. I read the Shiver trilogy a long time ago, and I remember I liked it well enough, but this companion novel just didn’t do anything for me. I didn’t care for the characters, especially cryptic Cole St. Clair, and while I did enjoy the idea of a reality TV show, nothing much seemed to happen for the majority of the book aside from tension between Cole and Isabel. The pacing was just too slow for me, and while it is well written, it just isn’t my style. If you’ve thoroughly enjoyed Stiefvater’s Shiver trilogy, though, I’d say you’d probably really enjoy this one, as well.  Two stars for me, though.

2 stars

I received this novel from the publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

I actually tried the first book of the series, but put it down part way through and never came back to it. Just didn’t care anything for the characters…..



I keep picking up Stiefvater’s novels because most people just adore them. But… I don’t really connect. :/ This is my last Steifvater novel.
