Waiting on Wednesday: Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

Publish Date: July 1, 2014
Publisher: Scholastic Press

I love Maggie Stiefvater and I loved the Shiver series, so I'm really excited for this spin off.

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?

"Legions of fans -- myself included -- have wanted Maggie to return to the world of Shiver, and now she's found an ingenious, sexy, utterly compelling way to do it," says David Levithan, VP/Publisher and Editorial Director, Scholastic Press. "This isn't so much a re-visitation as it is a reinvention, with Maggie taking readers to many places they've never been with her before. There is nothing quite so amazing as Maggie Stiefvater at the top of her game."

Author Maggie Stiefvater says, "For me, finishing the Shiver trilogy was a bittersweet moment -- I knew that I wouldn't be returning to Mercy Falls once Sam and Grace's story was over. But Cole and Isabel still lurked in the back of my mind. Both of them were only half-fixed at the end of the trilogy, and I wanted to know if they could be fixed the rest of the way."


  1. WANT WANT WANT. So excited for this, though I wish they would've kept the theme from the Wolves of Mercy Falls covers. And I hope we see Sam and Grace!

  7. YES! I can not wait for this one either. I'm going to pre-order it. Love to see Cole and Isabel back. Maybe we can get a hint of Sam and Grace too?

  8. I'm so far behind in the Shiver series! I stopped after book one because I felt the story was a bit slow, but that was long before I started the blog, and since then I've loved the books of hers I've read. I'm thinking I need to give this series a try again:)

  9. I'm also really looking forward to this one. Also...infinite cover swoonage right now!
