My thoughts :
I don't know where to start ... I'm still addicted to Maggie's writing which I find beautiful and musical !
Let's start with the characters :
Sam and Grace are still a perfect couple to me : they have to fight to be together because Grace's parents forbid her to see Sam (so there are less scenes with both of them in this book than in the first one). I was still under the spell of their love story but I've to admit that I really enjoyed the new character of Linger : Cole. He is a rockstar who asked Beck to turn him into a werewolf because of his crappy life. Unlike Sam, Cole wants to stay a wolf and forget his life as a human. But it's not that simple because he's actually stuck with his human self ... I love all the scenes between Cole and Isabel, and I'm hoping we'll get more in Forever. Speaking of Isabel, she's such a funny character, I had noticed it in Linger but she really surprised me ...
Grace's parents are still jerks to me (sorry but they really piss me off) ... I've never hated characters so much (but it's in a good way, it's what the author wants us to feel, at least I guess so). When Grace's dad punched Sam, I was so angry that I wanted to be there and pnched him back!!
Well, to finish, I have to say it ...the end made me cry, once more !! But how not to ?
My favorites quotes :
I had a lot more quotes but I didn't write them down so I can't remember them, sorry ...
"I'm naked," I said.
"So am I," Isabelle replied. Under my clothing. (Cole&Isabelle - p117).
If we'd had the opportunity to deliver our confessions to anyone who actually cared about their content, there was no way either of us would've opened our mouths. Sharing revelations is easier when it doesn't matter." (Cole - p136).
"Crouched there, beside Victor, I was aware that the glinting eyes meant something different to each of us. Sam's past. My present. Grace's future." (Cole - p325)
