The second book of the Wolves of Mercy Falls series and I enjoy the characters more and more. Well, most of them.
Sam is enjoying his freedom from being a wolf. He’s still completely smitten with Grace, almost to the point of being blind about Grace’s circumstances. Grace, continually moody even though she should be ecstatic that Sam has chosen to stay with her, seems to not appreciate how wonderful Sam truly is.
Then there is Cole. He’s new to this book and has chosen to become a wolf. He was chosen to take over the pack once Sam became human again. Cole is dark and moody, and comes from a bad place after being a young rock superstar. I hated him at first, but he quickly became one of my favorite characters in the book.
Isabell continues to be moody, but I like her more in this book than in Shiver. I appreciate that she’s trying to come to terms with Jack’s death, and that Cole makes her anxious and worrisome.
When Grace becomes sick, and her parents finally decide to be parents, and forbid her to see Sam, Grace becomes more determined than ever to be with him. After working so hard to keep Sam, Grace may be the one who has to leave now. This book kept me listening, on the edge of my seat, and eager for the third book.
