Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sinner: Stiefvater's New Spinoff Sinner is like a spinoff to The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, following Isabel Culpepper and Cole St.Clair to California where he relentlessly tries to mend his relationship with her. But Cole has broken Isabel's heart once, and now she is more wary of him, and even afraid when he surprises her by popping out of the blue to visit her at work after a period of time of not talking at all. Cole has earned a reputation of being a drug addict, and was assumed to be dead while he was in Minnesota dealing with his newfound ability to transform into a wolf. Cole desperately wants to turn his life around and just make music with Isabel by his side, but she doesn't seem to be following along with his idea. If you enjoyed The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy (Shiver, Linger and Forever) then you should pick Sinner up for a read. Those who liked Cole St.Clair before, will love him now in all his beautiful glory. You see these two characters, who were hiding behind walls and setting themselves away from everyone else in the trilogy, suddenly become vulnerable. Since it is in their perspectives you get to explore who they really are inside and decide for yourself now that you know their true personalities, wether you like them or not. It reminded me of Gayle Forman's sequel Where She Went, which I also loved. In the end, Sinner was not as good as any of the original three books, but a stunning and well done spinoff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from another PERFECT book by Stiefvater I loved Sinner so much. Way way more than I thought I would. I read the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy back before I even know what YA meant. So I was pretty fuzzy about the details of that trilogy and worried I would need to read recaps before starting Sinner but I can tell you that you don't even need to read the trilogy to enjoy this book. Sinner is about Cole, the rockstar turned druggie turned wolf we meet in the previous trilogy and love to hate.. but also love to love.. pretty conflicting feelings about him to be honest. However Sinner just made him a permanent love to love for me. Sinner is set after the trilogy ends, and Cole is now on his way to Isabel, the girl he was tangled with during the trilogy. I think those two have a very.. complex and charged love hate relationship. Cole is always on the brink of losing control, of going back to his rock stardom destructive behavior and Isabel.. Isabel has been through so much crap she's become hardened, pessimistic, and wary of people and life. Putting those two together in a room.. woof.. recipe for an explosive. I love complex characters. I love love Cole's monologues and thoughts and his narration. It always feels one second too fast, his thoughts are always in a whirlwind and keeping up with him is exhilarating. That's the best way I can define my reading experience of this book. Of course it is told from both Cole and Isabel's POVs and I also liked her chapters too. You're not really going to read anything negative about this book because I'm pretty much obsessed with it at the moment. Sinner is more focused on the characters and their struggles than the paranormal aspect. It pretty much reads as a contemporary except for the occasional werewolf-ism. Cole is a pretty cocky but charming guy and Isabel tries to push everyone away but she's really sweet. Those two pretty much suit each other and I loved reading about them and their relationship. What's different in Sinner is that those two already knew each other, were together, but left each other. It isn't a happily ever after ending where as soon as they get together everything is perfect. This isn't a beautiful story or romance, it is fractured and can never be perfect, but who wants perfect right? I love Maggie Stiefvater's writing, she writes better and better with each book. I can't wait for Blue Lily, Lily Blue because The Raven Boys is AMAZING and I can't wait to pick up my copy of The Scorpio Races!
