Each year as winter blows in; Grace welcomes the cold since it means her wolf will be back. His yellow eyes and sleek form draw her to him every time she searches the forest. She has felt a connection to him since the day he protected her from a wolf attack when she was a child. When Sam is injured and lands right on Grace’s door step, even in human form, his yellow eyes are a dead give away. Grace knows he is her wolf and she has never wanted anything more.
I love the way Stiefvater writes this story in alternating points of view. My favorite aspect of the book is the love that develops between Grace and Sam but there is also a nice mix of mystery and danger surrounding the Wolves of Mercy Falls.
