Grace and Sam have switched places - Grace is a wolf, Sam is human - but their love hasn't gone. Sam doesn't know where Grace is, if she survived being bitten, or what happened to her, and it's tearing him apart. Isabelle and Cole can't seem to figure out what is wrong with them. Tom Culpeper has organized a wolf hunt, and Sam knows that it's possible Grace could be there when they start. They have to fight to be together. One. Last. Time.
When I finished this book, I had to lay in my bed and digest it for a second. I had to realize that there would be no more Grace-Sam-Isabelle-Cole-Wolves books anymore, and that made me tear up. This novel is beautiful. It has a beautiful cover, beautiful characters, beautiful language, a beautiful ending, and a beautiful story. Stiefvater never disappoints!
I think that this book definitely taught me something about writing - that you have to make your readers fall head over heels in love with the characters, otherwise you won't really care what happens to them. I love Grace. I love Sam. I love Isabelle and her snarky comments that I wish I could get away with. I even love Cole and his weird self-esteem issues. It all just works somehow, and that is why it is beautiful.
