Grace lives at the edge of the woods, and sometimes, at dusk, the wolves come out.
One yellow-eyed wolf stands out - he fascinates her. When a teen disappears, locals blame the wolves, and send out hunters. Grace comes home to find a boy on her deck -shot, and he has yellow eyes... A imaginative take on werewolves and told from the view of two great characters. — Leah Moore
Teen girl falls for boy werewolf. Angst follows. Yet Stiefvater again twists the tropes in this character driven story, told from alternating points of view of Sam and Grace, where the only villain is the way life is, and how little you can do to change it. An introspective story about grappling with your future, written in Stiefvater's signature poetic style. — Hanna Yost

From a dazzlingly talented young writer, a haunting and original supernatural romance in the vein of TWILIGHT. For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again. Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.
