QUCIK BOOK REVIEW: Sinner (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #4) by Maggie Stiefvater

Title: Sinner
Series: (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #4)  
Author: Maggie Steifvater
Genre: Young Adult

Cole St. Clair has come to California for one reason: to get Isabel Culpeper back. She fled from his damaged, drained life, and damaged and drained it even more. He doesn't just want her. He needs her.

Isabel is trying to build herself a life in Los Angeles. It's not really working. She can play the game as well as all the other fakes...but what's the point? What is there to win?

Cole and Isabel share a past that never seemed to have a future. They have the power to save each other and the power to tear each other apart. The only thing for certain is that they cannot let go.

Isabel is such a bitch, and Cole is a beautiful asshole—but I LOVED THIS BOOK.

It was (as Maggie Steifvater's books always are) written magnificently, with wicked lines and heart-felt feelings.

Cole's redemption began in the second Mercy Fall's series, but finished with a sweet sigh and bang-pow in this companion novel, Sinner. He was redeemed in the most absolute way; from a suicidal, 'effed up ex-rock star to a genius, reluctantly-shifting werewolf, and finally, in Sinner, to the won serous Cole St. Clair who stole my metaphorical heart and made him top 2 of my Best Most Epic Book Boyfriends In All The Books I've Ever Read.

Also, I adore Isabel's character. She's so different to the heroines I'm used to reading, that it's refreshing to laugh at her bitchy (but witty) one liners. She's a strong woman, both fearful and fearless; everything you don't want to be, and want to be at the same time. She's—as Isabel so eloquently puts it—as "kissable as a plane crash".

But it's a wonderous thing; to read the fantastical Cole St. Clair, puckering his lips toward the destruction that is Isabel Culpeper.

All in all: Do yourself a favor and read this rad book, if anything for the twisted minds of Cole and Isabel.
