They just stay still and watch as their own body and mind slowly turn to ashes. Cole is not sad and he doesn't feel sorry for himself: He can be euphoric one moment and depressed the next, and everything he does and says it's always too much.
He turns all the fire inside so he won't hurt anyone else, and his soul burns instead. He's a different person now, not the one he used to be, but the truth is He knows loss and he knows love, and there is nothing more beautiful than the desperate and all-consuming way he loves Isabel.
She's lost her brother, and her family is slowly falling apart, so her only choice is to put on a mask and act completely indifferent to the whole world. While Cole is burning, she is slowly fading. She treats people with cold sarcasm and never has a kind word for anyone, not even for her shy and awkward cousin Sofia, and certainly not for her parents. Isabel's family is a broken one.
She tries to be icy-cold and not to fall in love with Cole all over again and to be immune to the storm she's found herself into, and sometimes she even tries to lose herself in a world she doesn't quite understand, but it never works. Isabel is not everyone else. While the world sees her as a cold soul, she's burning with anger. I don't get why this whole world runs on stupidity. Sometimes it hit a little too close to home and it told me things I didn't want to know, it reminded me of things I didn't want to remember, but this is exactly why I love this trilogy.
Because unlike anything else I've ever read, it gives me the sweet feeling of decay, of life and death, of everything broken that maybe - only maybe - can be fixed. Now I really want to reread the entire trilogy, even though I should definitely get new copies. I have the Italian edition of all three books and not only I want to read them in English, but my editions also have the ugliest covers you could ever think of. Thank you very much, Italian publishers. So yeah, joyfully ignoring the fact that I'm penniless, I'm officially getting new copies of The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy!
And of course, I'm getting a copy of Sinner as well, because if you didn't already get that impression from my review We are a wonder of checks and balances to keep on running. The human body doesn't want to get hurt. There was something wrong with me, because sometimes I didn't care.
There was something wrong with me, because sometimes I wanted it. We fear death; we fear the void; we scrabble to keep our pulses. I was the void. View all 20 comments. Sep 10, Annie Brewer is currently reading it Shelves: Since we're nearing the publication of this book, I'm going batshit crazy!!!
When I saw it was available on netgalley, I requested it. That was a few days ago. Still haven't heard and it's driving me nuts!!! I've gotten approved of at least 5 other books this week Well, regardless I'm reading this by July 1st!!! I loved Cole in the Wolves trilogy. Maybe we'll get to see where he and Isabel end up. Ahhhh Edit: Ahhhhh, so excited! Thank you Maggie!
I've wanted a Cole book since Forever ended. Thank you, thank you, thank you! But I have to wait until July of next year??? That's a freakin long time. At least we get one.
Can I get a whoop whoop? There were parts I loved: I will say I was happy to have closure for Cole and Isabel after so long.
Cole has moved to Los Angeles in an attempt to re-start his music career. But the main reason he chose L. Instead of signing on with a record label Cole has agreed to make an album while having it 2. One that specializes in featuring stars self-destruct in the process.
I get hives just thinking about it! Sinner had a couple of things going against it for me from the beginning that may not be a problem for other readers. First of all, the whole premise of starring in a sensationalized reality show was a big negative for me. And this is the setting. I think this is the main reason it felt so different from the rest of the Wolves of Mercy Falls series.
The whole shifting and wolf thing hardly factored in the story at all. The chemistry between Cole and Isabel was palpable and they shared some very sexy moments.
It was the best thing about the story, IMO. Granted, these smooch-fests were very lusty, Maggie is a whiz at building the moment up, but I want more than just kissing. I want a deep connection, but Cole and Isabel were never really on the same page for the better part of the book.
Cole was always chasing and Isabel was always running. Especially since Cole and Isabel were my favorite couple in Forever. A copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for a honest review. View all 21 comments.

Nov 22, Rachel Reads Ravenously rated it it was amazing Shelves: After the events of Forever, Isabel has moved from Minnesota to Los Angeles with her mother, moved in with her cousin and is pursuing a career in medicine. Cole, the haunted musician turned werewolf, has followed her back to the city that played a part in his downfall. Both 4. Both Isabel and Cole are trying to move on from their past and become better versions of themselves, but are they standing in their own way?
In this book Isabel is still trying to recover from the death of her brother and the destruction of her family. In place of drugs, Cole has used transforming into the wolf as a way to stop feeling, heroine for werewolfism.
Isabel is the only person who understands Cole for who he really is. Their connection comes from the fact that they both see each other for who they really are, and not what other people see them as.
Because there was nothing wrong in the world except that I was getting older in it. For Cole, coming back to LA means facing his demons, and the city can either help him move on, or it could take away the last part of his soul. I had fun reading this, being a resident of the greater Los Angeles area, because I could tell that the author either did her research, or has spent a lot of time in Los Angeles and has a key appreciation of it.
Los Angeles was not glorified, and it was not criticized, it just was in this book. The romantic plot was actually the majority of this book. Not that I minded, as I said Cole and Isabel are my favorite, so it was a nice change to see Cole just got for it and to try and get Isabel.
His determination and devotion to her showed how much he had really changed from his past life. And the day after that. For Sam and Grace, the werewolf issue was about not being able to escape their circumstances. Overall, I am so freaking glad that Maggie wrote this book and gave the readers an ending they could cherish.
Sinner is a wonderful story of redemption and love, and how we need to move past what we once were to become who we really are. My casting: View all 22 comments.

Sinner, is the last book in The Wolves of Mercy Falls series. Its all about my two favorite characters- Isabel and Cole. I could relate to them so much more than Grace and 4 Stars!! I could relate to them so much more than Grace and Sam. They are just more my cup of tea. This one was not really like the rest of the series.
Its not a stand alone but its just different and I loved it. I like that we get to really see into what makes these characters tick and what they are really struggling with. I really appreciate the way the author wrote about addiction and how it really can grip a person and the struggles that they face- even when sober.
It was done extremely well, especially for it being a YA book. I recommend this series as a whole- mainly for these two characters. They brought a realness to the series. Something raw and not fairy-tale perfect. This was an excellent ending!! I am totally calm. Nothing earth-shattering has happened. Cole's only getting his own book. Nothing to be excited about. Oh, gosh! This was even better than I imagined!
I'm so impressed with Maggie right now. Sinner follows Cole St. Everybody thinks they know Cole's story. But only a few people know I am totally calm. 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? I did feel like Cole's story wasn't finished and guess what? I was right! The fact Maggie decided to write Sinner means the world to me.
The story starts with Cole being his charming self and he's gone to Los Angeles to find Isabel and along the way, to make a new record.
When he does, he sees Isabel is not quick to forgive him for being a hot mess I'm putting it mildly. He's been using drugs to induce his change in warm weather. He's doing it to escape from his thoughts and past that are still haunting him. It's hard to explain why I love Cole and Isabel together. They are both messed up people. Cole, a showman and Isobel, an ice queen. But when they're together, sparks fly. The beginning of the book was playful and I was smirking at their bickering.
Later, I was consumed with a severe case of feels.
Their scenes weren't swoony. They were raw and real. Don't think Maggie wrote anything like this before. I feel as if this book was her most distinctive story so far. I mentioned this in one of my status updated- Sinner was everything I hoped The Piper's Son would be.
I had high expectations for TPS because it's Melina freaking Marchetta we're talking about here but I ended up being disappointed because I didn't feel the connection with the book. That wasn't the case with Sinner. Maggie Stiefvater isn't known for writing contemporary books but I have to say, this book was one of those strange paranormal novels which doesn't talk much about paranormal stuff.
The essence of this book is based on personal growth and not on fangs and paws. If you, like me, prefer contemporary novels over paranormals, then you'll be smitten with it because our dear author brought out all the guns. And if you're not a fan of contemps then you'll still enjoy it because of Cole and Isabel. I don't really know what to say about this book. It was phenomenal! It made me think outside my box. It was the kind of book you would put on a special place in your shelf because it deserves it so I encourage you, go and order it!

Of course, he can't really tell her that. He thinks he needs to get her to see how much she needs him too. I've always liked Cole and couldn't wait to read his story but OMG, he about drove me c If you've read the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, you were probably happy with it for the most part but I've always liked Cole and couldn't wait to read his story but OMG, he about drove me crazy!
With his "restlessness" or whatever you want to call it, it was very easy to see how he became an addict. But by him shifting, that was really just another addiction. It really made me wonder if he truly loves Isabel or if she's just something else to soothe his additive personality? Isabel is as sarcastic as ever, in fact, she's even brought that to new heights. But I loved how aware she was of herself and her feelings She drove me as crazy as Cole but in a different way.
Thank goodness we got both their POVs I loved the other relationships that Cole and Isabel had. Cole with Leon and Isabel with Sofia We do get little tidbits of Sam and Grace but mainly through phone calls. It would have been nice to have an actually scene or two with them. This book is pretty heavy with the romance and surprisingly steamy. Now don't get your hopes up, there's no details but I didn't mind that at all.
To be honest, MS' writing scares me. I loved Shiver but it was heartbreaking and I never knew which way she would go with this book. Luckily, I was happy with the outcome but she keeps you on edge until almost the last second.
Thankfully, there is an epilogue And while I was thrilled with the way things went, I was left wanting more When did that start? My mouth, my throat, under my ear. He hesitated. This place, this beautiful place, this girl, this beautiful girl, this music, this life.

There some books that remind you why you're absolutely obsessed with stories. This is one of them. The end. You didn't really think that's all I was going to say, right? No, I have a glorious review. Maggie You know I'm a fan of Maggie Stiefvater. Who's slightly cliche titles we'll forgive because we're magnanimous like that.
They start off narrated by Grace, who is obsessed with wolves which are actually werewolves because it's a bit weird to fall in love with an animal Sam is Grace's One True Love.
He's a wolf. Then enters Cole: And Isabel: Sam and Grace are art and muse. Cole and Isabel are knife and fire. It's also about music. Don't underestimate how freakishly hard it is to write a musical book. Musical movies are fine. You have ears. Musical books must sing you the music using mere words.
How hard is that? Sinner, of course, pulls it off with flying colours and crackling chords. I adore music and I love that I could hear and feel it while reading the book. And can we just talk about how GOOD the writing is? It's huge on the visuals, smells and feels details. Who'd have thought they could change a book from "cool" to "freakishly awesome"?
I absolutely love how closely I could experience the book. The description isn't flooding over page after page. It uses punchy words. Then it's done.
The McMansion was sterile enough to actually remove pieces of my identity every time I returned to it, insidiously replacing them with wall-to-wall white carpet and blond hardwood floors. A few words and -- BOOM -- the clearest picture is in your mind. It's funny. Did I mention I like funny? The banter between Cole and Isabel is the best because they are really mean people who act like they hate each other and couldn't care less -- when really they care so so much and they can't bear the thought of losing each other.
Lo There is a brief Sam and Grace cameo. It's note enough, mind you. I was hoping they'd at least squeeze a scene in together. My only MEH moment is that it centers around Cole doing a "live-reality-television" thing of his life while he's composing his next album.
I hate those things. Reality TV? I absolutely hate it.
This didn't dampen the book for me, but it made me twitchy the whole time. Isabel didn't like it either, so at least I could stand with her on that one. I just love this book, okay? I loved it a lot. I couldn't put it down.
It made me want to write a million things and read a million things and just appreciate the greatest art that is books. Sep 10, Thomas rated it really liked it Shelves: I gave so many damns at once that it actually hurt. Three years after the publication of Forever , Maggie Stiefvater takes us into the lives of Cole and Isabel with her standalone companion book Sinner. And Baz could be evil and a vampire and an entire git, yet he's most likely right.
Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand paintings, and the opposite part, he begins anything on fireplace.
His mentor's warding off him, his female friend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster working round, donning Simon's face. Baz will be having a box day with all this, if he have been the following — it's their final 12 months on the Watford institution of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even hassle to teach up.
Carry On - the increase and Fall of Simon Snow is a ghost tale, a love tale and a secret. It has simply as a lot kissing and speaking as you'd count on from a Rainbow Rowell tale - yet a ways, way more monsters.
