Couple Countdown No 10 - Grace and Cole

So we are starting to countdown with a rather unusual pairing ~ Grace and Cole from Maggie Stiefvater's The Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy.


Quick Note for those who haven't read Forever yet, don't worry! Maggie doesn't pull the biggest twist of all time and have Grace run off with Cole, leaving Sam all alone with his guitar.


I went into Forever, the final novel in The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, expecting to be delighted by Grace and Sam's deepening relationship and their sweet moments together - love those two! I was also hoping to be swooning/laughing as Cole and Isabel continued to prowl around each other - both far more dangerous in human form then any wolf.


What I didn't expect was to adore the relationship that started between Cole and Grace. I wasn't really expecting much interaction between them at all actually, but there was, and I loved it. Seeing Grace through Cole's eyes, and seeing Cole through Grace's eye added a depth to their characters I hadn't even been aware was missing. Also Cole's observations of Sam and Grace together are both gorgeous and kind of heartbreaking.


The way all four characters interconnected was really nicely done and is another reason why this trilogy is one of my favourites.


See you tomorrow with the first guest post!

  2. Ah thanks Angie, I thought I might be alone with this one, but I thought it was kind of perfect, although Sam remains my favourite thing haha :)
