Review: "Forever" by Maggie Stiefvater

From Goodreads:  The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie StievaterIn Maggie Stiefvater's SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they fought to be together. Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.

My Thoughts:  I was so looking forward to this book but unfortunately I was pretty disappointed.  The story was great and I felt like this was the best book of the three...until the last chapter.  It felt like Stiefvater wanted the book to be a certain length and just ended the book.  There was no resolution to anything and the loose ends were not tied up!  I still want to know what happens to Grace, Cole and Isabel!!  I feel like Sam is going to be fine but I am not sure what will happen to the other three.  I really loved these characters and am kind of mad that the reader does not get any kind of finality.  Stiefvater made it clear in the Author's Note at the end of the book that this is the last volume in 'The Wolves of Mercy Falls' books and that made me even more frustrated.  I am giving this book 3 stars but only because everything up to the end was really good.
