Forever

Forever is the thrilling conclusion to Maggie Stiefvater’s #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver trilogy.

In Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. In Linger, they fought to be together. Now, in Forever, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.

Maggie Stiefvater is a writer, artist, musician, and the New York Times bestselling author of Shiver, hailed by Publishers Weekly in a starred review as, “a lyrical tale,” and by Bookpage as “beautifully written, even poetic at times, and a perfect indulgence for readers of all ages.” Since publication, rights to more than thirty-five foreign editions of Shiver have been licensed. Linger, the second book in the Shiver trilogy debuted at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. Maggie is also the author of Lament: The Faerie Queen’s Deception and Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie. She lives in Virginia with her husband and their two children.


Wolfsbane

Wolfsbane

How many trials can one love survive? This thrilling sequel to the much-talked-about Nightshade begins just where it ended. Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemy, and she’s certain her days are numbered. But then the Searchers make her an offer–one that gives her the chance to destroy her former masters and save the pack, and the man, she left behind. Is Renworth the price of her freedom? And will Shay stand by her side no matter what? Now in control of her own destiny, Calla must decide which battles are worth fighting and how many trials true love can endure and still survive.

Andrea Cremer’s New York Times bestselling, debut young adult novel Nightshade drew the attention of readers and critics alike last fall and quickly established her as a talented new voice in the world of teen literature. The Los Angeles Times raved, “A fantastical mash-up of religious warriors and witch hunts, of feminist will and societal oppression.” Entertainment Weekly.com said, “This teen wolf tale… will keep you reading intently.”

Wolfsbane is the second book in the Nightshade trilogy, and will be followed by Bloodrose in spring 2012.
