Blade knows the city better than anyone. He knows how to escape, how to hide, how to go unnoticed. But when he meets Becky and her daughter Jaz, everything changes. Because now they all have people after them, and it looks like Blade's past and Becky's past have joined forces, and there's nowhere left to run. This was actually really good, fast-paced, gritty and realistic. But it's very dark and depressing. It's the first in a series, and I don't know if I'll continue or not. On the one hand - really dark and depressing. On the other - I wanna know what happens.
Book #19 -- Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver, 392 pages.
The best werewolf book I've read since Blood and Chocolate (sorry Kelley Armstrong). Stiefvater's werewolves are a completely different breed from most - harsher, more real, more conflicted - and the love story is heartbreaking and heartwarming in equal measure. I can't wait for the sequel to come out this summer.
