This Week’s Topic: Which Shiver character(s) warms your heart/inner fangirl.
After rereading Shiver and Linger, I’ve found that the secondary characters’ stories are almost more captivating in the series than the romance itself. Isabel is one of my favorites because she’s sort of an anti-hero. In the first book you think she’s going to be the stereotypical popular-mean-girl, but she’s actually smart and intuitive and doesn’t cry wolf (haha, see what I did there?) when she learns Sam’s secret. I admire Isabel’s tenacity, and her character draws me in a way that Grace’s doesn’t (which is interesting seeing that as a teen I identified with Grace more but now in my twenties I’m drawn more to Isabel). It’s refreshing reading about a strong female character because Stiefvater writes them well and The Raven Cycle in contrast has so many male characters (as does The Wolves of Mercy Falls, with a majority of the pack being male). I’m excited to see Isabel’s story progress in Sinner and she’s definitely on my list of top female characters!
