No, no, noooooooo! Why, Maggie Stiefvater, WHY? I need more than a trilogy. I NEED more of Sam, Grace, Cole and Isabel and you tell me that I'll never get it? My dearest wolves of Mercy Falls what a great journey this has been. I love you, always!

Excuse me for throwing a fit like a four year old but I'm just so sad to be leaving these fictional characters I've come to grow so fond of. Isabel, Cole, Sam and Grace all got under my skin. Thank heavens above that I yet have several more of Maggies books to read(like THE RAVEN BOYS thanks to The Norwegian Book Girl).
Not much of a review
To be honest this is not much of a review, this is just a "I love and loathe(not really!) you, Maggie", post.I have ambivalent feelings about the ending of this series, it was both perfect and annoying at the same time. In all honesty I love Maggie Stiefvater's writing and the trilogy couldn't have ended any other way.

Reasons why I fell in love:
1. The language - Maggie you're a very talented writer and you know your way with words like Patrick Rothfuss and Laini Taylor to name a few other master wordsmiths.
2. The character development - the characters change in a pace that feels so natural.
3. The story - oh so bittersweet.
By way of ending this little "nothing but a fangirling review" I'll leave you with a quote from Sam helping a customer in the bookstore looking for a self-help novel:
…I would have told her that every book ever written was a self-help book and could she be more specific?How can this not make you love Sam(and Maggie Stiefvater)?
