Shiver Fans Rejoice, Linger Cover and Excerpt Revealed!

Today, Maggie Stiefvater unveiled the cover art and the first few paragraphs of Linger, the sequel to her wonderfully amazing book Shiver. Check it out!

Awesome, right? I can't say as I like it as much as I liked the Shiver cover, but I love the style, and the greens in it are gorgeous! Also, Shiver was really neat in that the entire book had cool blue touches throughout, making it fun to page through, so I'm eager to see a finished copy of Linger.

Also, here are the first few paragraphs of Linger!


This is the story of a boy who used to be a wolf and a girl who was becoming one.

Just a few months ago, it was Sam who was the mythical creature. His was the disease we couldn’t cure. His was the good-bye that meant the most. He had the body that was a mystery, too strange and wonderful and terrifying to comprehend.

But now it is spring. With the heat, the remaining wolves will soon be falling out of their wolf pelts and back into their human bodies. Sam stays Sam, and Cole stays Cole, and it’s only me who’s not firmly in my own skin.

Yay! I can't wait! What do you think will happen?
