Cover Art - Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

Maggie Stiefvater unveiled the official cover for Linger, the sequel to the Shiver in her Wolves of Mercy Falls series..  I love the way the silhouette is is subtly placed in the illustration. Linger releases in fall 2010.



This is the story of a boy who used to be a wolf and a girl who was becoming one.
Just a few months ago, it was Sam who was the mythical creature. His was the disease we couldn’t cure. His was the good-bye that meant the most. He had the body that was a mystery, too strange and wonderful and terrifying to comprehend.
But now it is spring. With the heat, the remaining wolves will soon be falling out of their wolf pelts and back into their human bodies. Sam stays Sam, and Cole stays Cole, and it’s only me who’s not firmly in my own skin.

  1. It looks so nice, and a perfect fit to the previous book! It will be a long wait though...

  3. Kay its always nice to see a series develop its own unique style apart from what the rest of the genre is doing. Simple covers but elegant.

    Jessica I have Shiver on my TBR stack. Eventually...

  4. I just just finished Shiver, and wow. Such a breath of fresh air in the YA paranormal genre. I started it at noon, and haven't put it down all day. But now, who in the world is Cole?

  5. I have 'Shiver' on my TBR pile - as much as the story intrigues me, I gotta admit I am like a moth to flame when I see a pretty cover. Stiefvater has a great design team working for her - I like the silhouette, and the green/blue complements between Shiver and Linger. I like the fact that this YA werewolf book isn't following in the footsteps of so many before it - like Alex Duvall's rereleased 'Vampire Beach' covers imitating Stephenie Meyer's 'Twilight' covers. Bah!

  6. Sheila I am sucker for illustration. Haven't read Shiver but I hope to soon.

    Danielle well you know what they say about immitation. I've noticed a slew of YA cover recently imitating the style of the Vampire Academy books.
