Audio Book Review: Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2)

I had grand plans for devouring this book over Christmas but man was it a busy holiday!  Coming back home, to work and the commute ( and chores) allowed me to crush the rest and I loved, loved, it!

In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.

Narrator Voice: 9 ( with a 2 for the singing).  OK I get it Cole is a singer, so is Sam, but lets just not have the characters sing, ok?  It is bad.

Originality: 8.  I Sorta saw some of this coming, but I was hooked anyways. 

Absurdity: 5.  This mostly has to do with the real life adult stuff that gets all glossed over.  Does Sam do chores? Does he cook? Bank?  Fine fine, we wont talk about it, but I know it is there.  Also, Grace's parents are the worst and her Dad is the most absurd part of this book. Also, Sam's feelings: Absurdity = 8.  Teenage boys just do not emote like this.

Level of Paranormal Romance: 9. Stay strong, teen-werewolf love.

Level of Harry-Potterness: 8.  I find the way that Stiefvater turns a phrase grabs you and doesn't let go.  Some if it just feels so REAL, their emotions and feelings towards eachother.  It hooks you and you just cant stop.

Book Three is already on my phone to listen to....
