Series: The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3.5
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: 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?
Review: I wasn't the biggest fan of The Shiver trilogy, but when I saw Sinner at BEA I wanted to give it a try. It was way different than The Shiver books because in this novel we only get brief glimpses of the paranormal aspect, it could almost be a contemporary book lol. It was very entertaining and I read it in a few hours. Stiefvater does know how to perfect the duel POVs.
I love Cole and ISabel, they are perfect for each other. They are both damaged and and it works for them. I loved hearing their internal struggles. I think their relationship is fun but will be a challenge because they both have baggage. I did enjoy the sexual tension between them.
I would recommend this book to those who both loved and hated The Shiver Trilogy and those who love Maggie's books. I would even read another one to see how Cole and Isabel end up.
