When Sam met Grace, he was a wolf and she was a girl. Eventually he found a way to become a boy, and their loved moved from curious distance to the intense closeness of shared lives.

That should have been the end of their story. But Grace was not meant to stay human. Now she is the wolf. And the wolves of Mercy Falls are about to be kill in one final, spectacular hunt.

Sam would do anything for Grace. But can one boy and one love really change a hostile, predatory world? The past, the present, and the future are about to collide in one pure moment - a moment of death or life, farewell or forever.


You know, since this book has been sitting in my shelf for over a year, I thought it was time that I finally read it. I initially put it away because I did not want the series to end. Now, that I have read it, it didn’t feel as satisfying as I thought it would.

Plot. First of all, the plot felt the exactly the same as the first two books. They are still fighting against their wolf-selves as well as threats from the human world. Nothing much change other than the fact that now their were finally going to make a decision about their future and well being.

Love. The love interest of course didn’t stray away from what has already been grown. Of course now, Sam is just trying to wait for Grace and is even going to great lengths to protect her the best his can. In this book, I found more interest in the minor characters, Cole and Isabel. Their story really shined and brought of light a lot of truth.

Cure. Well, that’s one way to put it. But does is work is the question.

Ending/Future. I think the way the book ended is not very satisfying. I mean, yeah, they have to place to live with no fear of being hunted and also a cure. Still, I felt like this book ended vague, cause you can still have questions but also complete cause it ended on a good note.

Forever is a good conclusion. Emerging with a good ending, leaving the reader hopeful, Forever is great.

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!



  1. I loved the book, but I can’t decide looking back whether it was as good as it could have been. My memory is a bit fuzzy. What I need to do is read all 3 books in a row.

    As much as I’ve loved The Scorpio Races and The Raven Boys, this was a series I just couldn’t get into for some reason Savy! Not sure why. It’s too bad this final book wasn’t as satisfying as you’d hoped, but I’m glad it at least ended on a good note even if it was a bit vague.

    I’m glad that you liked this. I have heard a lot of mixed reviews on this series. I think I might try the audiobooks.

    aww.. it sucks that it wasn’t as satisfying as you wanted it to be! 🙁 I still haven’t started this series, but I do own all three of them. Great review!

  5. That happens a lot to me in a last book of a series. I often get more disappointed with it than any other book. I haven’t read the second book yet and have it on my shelf.

    I really enjoyed this series though I did find the ending a little too… non-ending-y >.<

    Glad you enjoyed this. I only read the first book and then moved on Scorpio Races and The Raven Boys. Maybe I should finish the series!
