WARNING: THERE BE SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 3) is the final book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. When I read the first book, Shiver (Wolves of Mercy Falls), I was completely captivated by Grace and Sam. Their story broke my heart and filled me with hope at the same time. I recommended this book to friends and could not wait to get my hands on the second book, Linger (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 2). However, I didn't love Linger (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 2)like I loved Shiver (Wolves of Mercy Falls). I honestly don't know what I expected out of Linger (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 2), but what I got wasn't it. But, I have been known to be disappointed in 'middle novels' where trilogies are concerned because they tend to be a lot of filler and lead up to the final novel. So, despite my disappointment in Linger (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 2), I read Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 3). I really, truly wanted to know what happened to Sam and Grace, and even Cole, Isabel, Olivia and Beck. And after reading about 400 pages, I can't tell you what happened to any of the characters except for the ones who die. I feel like the ending never happened. I kept looking for an epilogue six months later or something. Maybe I'm selfish in wanting to know what happens, but I feel like I invested myself in three books about these characters and I'd like to know if anyone got a happy ending, you know? Maybe my tastes are too pedestrian, expecting some closure to the trilogy. Maybe I'm too old to read YA novels and my expecting an ending is a clear indication of this. I don't know. All I know is that I was disappointed in the end. I have nothing to say about the rest of the story because I can't get past the feeling of being left twisting in the wind. I feel like I read the trilogy and didn't get my payoff of at least knowing what happens and that ruined the entire reading experience for me.
