Review of Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

A standalone companion book to the internationally bestselling Shiver Trilogy.

Sinner follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver Trilogy. Everybody thinks they know Cole's story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Cole's darkest secret -- his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel's life. Can this sinner be saved?


Maggie Stiefvater pens a great story, no doubt about that. This story follows bad boy Cole St. Clair and the cynical Isabel. 
What I liked about the book? We get more of sexy Cole. It was a peak into his life and his mind.
What I didn't like about the book? Not a whole lot of wolf going on in it. I liked the whole wolf concept, but it was lacking. 
The series is amazing and I love the trilogy that goes along with this. It's bittersweet and full of emotion. This one comes close but just doesn't pull it off.
Would I recommend it? YES. Would I read more by this author? YES. Was this book a favorite? NO.
I give it four stars and look forward to future books by Maggie Stiefvater even if this wasn't her best book.
