Waiting On Wednesday: Sinner

Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Publisher: Scholastic
Publication Date: July 1, 2014

A standalone companion book to the internationally bestselling Shiver Trilogy.

Sinner follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver Trilogy. Everybody thinks they know Cole's story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Cole's darkest secret -- his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel's life. Can this sinner be saved?

"Legions of fans -- myself included -- have wanted Maggie to return to the world of Shiver, and now she's found an ingenious, sexy, utterly compelling way to do it," says David Levithan, VP/Publisher and Editorial Director, Scholastic Press. "This isn't so much a re-visitation as it is a reinvention, with Maggie taking readers to many places they've never been with her before. There is nothing quite so amazing as Maggie Stiefvater at the top of her game."
Author Maggie Stiefvater says, "For me, finishing the Shiver trilogy was a bittersweet moment -- I knew that I wouldn't be returning to Mercy Falls once Sam and Grace's story was over. But Cole and Isabel still lurked in the back of my mind. Both of them were only half-fixed at the end of the trilogy, and I wanted to know if they could be fixed the rest of the way."
My Thoughts: I make no secret of my obsession general appreciation of Maggie Stiefvater. I basically love everything she writes. When I heard Cole and Isabel were getting their own book I was ecstatic! Their story really did feel unfinished and I can't wait to see what Maggie has in store for them. During the long wait until publication I plan on jamming to the white pants novel playlist and pretending it's July already. 


  1. I never really liked the Shiver series. I read the first book but that was so-so for me and the second book I couldn't finish. So sad since I absolutely love werewolves. =/

    my WOW!

  3. I am so excited for this one too! I felt like she left Cole and Izzy way to open so I can't wait to see what happens. I have this planned as a future wow as well. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Maggie is the bomb dot com, and I was SO STOKED when I found out that she was writing a companion to her Shiver trilogy and the fact that it is about Cole St. Clair. Swoooooooon! Awesome choice, Emily! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. I still haven't read anything by Maggie. Total fail on my part, I know!

  6. I haven't read the Shiver trilogy yet, but that's cool she's making a spin-off! I've had a few friends who read and enjoyed the Shiver series, so I think I'll definitely try it out sometime soon. Amazing pick :)

  7. I haven't read the Shiver series, but I just finished The Raven Boys and loved it, I will have to check out this series!

  8. I LOVE the Wolves of Mercy Falls series and I cannot wait for Sinner! Great pick!

    Thanks for stopping by :)
