I did not enjoy Linger as much as I did Shiver, although I did enjoy it overall. Stiefvater's writing did not seem up to par with the first and the plot was not as strong. A large portion of the book was not very entertaining, although the ending was good and the cliffhanger was expected. I did not much enjoy Cole or Isabel's perspectives, although I do like Isabel's character--I just prefer it during Grace or Sam's writing. I also found that the different character "voices" were rather similar in this one and they blended together a bit and left me having to go back to see who was speaking if I set the book down. Also, what is with Grace's parents suddenly feeling parental? I was not too keen on that plot device, although I can see parents suddenly awakening at the absolutely wrong time--I still think Stiefvater should have left them out of the picture though.
