I really liked the first book of Stiefvater's Wolves trilogy. There's something about her writing that I can't put my finger on. Her books aren't rush through them to find out the ending page turners. They simmer slowly and get under your skin. There's something a bit melancholy about her books as well. It's like I can feel the snow and stillness of the forest when she writes about it. I liked Grace and thought she was smart and thoughtful. Her connection to the wolves runs deep and you could understand her fascination with them. At first I thought the different POVs was going to be annoying but it ended up being a good thing. Seeing Sam's side of things really gave the story more depth. You end up rooting for Sam and Grac, hoping that they make it. Guess I have to read book 2 to see what happens.
