Books Now Available: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

ShiverEarlier this month I reviewed Maggie Stiefvater's second novel for young adults: Shiver. Here's an excerpt from my review:

"Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver is, on the surface, a young adult fantasy novel about werewolves. But really, Shiver is a love story about two individuals longing for one another across a nearly impossible chasm... Despite being a "werewolf story", Shiver is much more a novel of atmosphere, characterization, and romance than of action. Like Stiefvater's first YA novel, Lament, Shiver captures love and longing perfectly."

Shiver is scheduled for publication on Saturday, but it seems to already be available for order from Amazon and Powell's. It is not to be missed. A sequel, Linger, is scheduled for publication in fall of 2010.
