(The first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series)
For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf–her wolf–is a chilling presence she can’t seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again. Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It’s her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human–or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.
This book drew me in from the moment I started reading it! I really liked the author's writing style and how lyrical the story is. This book has been compared to Twilight because of the forbidden love concept, but I can honestly say that this has a better story line. Each chapter is narrated by Grace or Sam and is headed by a temperature reading, which adds to the drama as the story develops. Overall, I think this is a great love story and it introduces you to the aspects of werewolf mythology.
