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.

I think this book is going to be the start to a great series. I was afraid that it would be Twilight-esque with the tale of romance, but surprisingly, it wasn't anything like that series. I found it quite interesting that in this series, Sam is comparing being a werewolf to being like a disease. I am about to start Linger and cannot wait to see where the story picks up!
