Goodreads Summary
For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf–her wolf–is a chilling presence she can’t seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again. Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It’s her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human–or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Omg omg omggggggg!!!!!
I wasn’t sure about this book, I don’t really read about wolves, but something made me read it and as soon as I opened the first page and as soon as I started to read the first page I was hooked on it I needed to know more, I would stay up really late just to catch up when I didn’t have time during the day. Whenever I looked at the clock and thought right this is my last chapter and then I have to go to sleep or be a walking zombie the next day, a little devil on my shoulder would argue that sleep isn’t important I should read just one more chapter; it won’t hurt. And by the end of it I would have read about 5 chapters after promising myself just one and sure enough I would be a zombie the next morning.
This book was mostly based on Grace’s and Sam’s love unlike most of the books I’ve read where they either have to hide their love and deal with other people and secrets, but no this book was just a story of the two of them fighting to be together forever and having this image of them not being able to as soon as winter comes, and that’s why this book was sooo amazing the thrill of action didn’t keep you reading on but their love did, and how the book was written, having both Grace and Sam narrate it was genius.
 All of the characters are so different and they have their own issues and past lives and that’s what I love about this book, Maggie Stiefvater didn’t just focus on the two main characters but gave profile and life to the others that I think some authors forget to do a lot.

This book made me laugh out loud, hold my breath in, get really excited, think about it nonstop and also cry. I would do anything to have my own yellowed eye wolf, and the love they share. Heck I would give anything to have Graces life.

The only thing I regret is not buying and reading this sooner, but also for not saying to hell with the work I’m supposed to do during the day and just sit and read it. 


  1. Yay! This is such a great series. I just adores Grace and Sam too. I hope you enjoy the rest of the books too. Great review.

    1. I know they are just amazing! I've read the whole series ages ago I just loved the book and wanted to share my review on here:)

  2. I'm glad you liked this! The first book was my favorite in this trilogy, although I'm not really into wolf books either this one is unique and really good. The author's other book The Scorpio Races is even better.

    1. As much as I love Maggie Stiefvater I'm not sure whether or not I want to read the Scorpio Races... It just doesn't really look appealing to me :(
