Review #295: Sinner- Maggie Stiefvater

Title: Sinner
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Series: The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3.5
Pages: 368
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.

About this author

New York Times bestselling author of The Shiver Trilogy, The Raven Cycle, and The Scorpio Races. Artist. Driver of things with wheels. Avid reader.
All of Maggie Stiefvater's life decisions have been based around her inability to be gainfully employed. Talking to yourself, staring into space, and coming to work in your pajamas are frowned upon when you're a waitress, calligraphy instructor, or technical editor (all of which she's tried), but are highly prized traits in novelists and artists. She's made her living as one or the other since she was 22. She now lives an eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia with her charmingly straight-laced husband, two kids, two neurotic dogs, and a 1973 Camaro named Loki.
