Series Wrap is a mini-feature where I sum up what I loved and loathed about a particular series upon completion. The rules are simple: I must have read and reviewed ALL books in said series and the series must be completed by the author. These posts are seperate from reviews.
About The Wolves of Mercy Falls
For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolfâ€”her wolfâ€”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 humanâ€¦ 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 humanâ€”or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Why I liked this series
Its sheer, romantic beauty and its profoundly realistic characters who I fell in love with instantly. Sam, Grace, Cole and Isabel are some of my favourite characters EVER and it’s so hard to part with them and not think of them as real, precious little people.
If the whole ‘werewolf’ genre isn’t your schtick, try Shiver. It’s completely different from the norm and isn’t about werewolves being awesomely inhuman with superpowers, saving the world from evil demons. It’s about true, pure love and living with werewolf-ism as if it were a sickness.
Why I disliked this series
Sometimes the lyrical stuff gets a bit too tedious for me, but not too badly because I wouldn’t be reading a Maggie Stiefvater book without it. There’s not much I dislike about this series at all (see the rating!) but if I’m really being picky, it’s because Sinner didn’t feel all that necessary even though I want more, more, more when it comes to these characters. Also, I wanted more answers.
Would I read this series again? Yes! And I have, twice now!
Would I recommend this series? TO EVERYONE I COME ACROSS.
This series in one word: Cherised.
