the cold.
Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—watches back. He feels deeply familiar to her, but she doesn't know why.

the heat.
Sam has lived two lives. As a wolf, he keeps the silent company of the girl he loves. And then, for a short time each year, he is human, never daring to talk to Grace...until now.

the shiver.
For Grace and Sam, love has always been kept at a distance. But once it's spoken, it cannot be denied. Sam must fight to stay human—and Grace must fight to keep him—even if it means taking on the scars of the past, the fragility of the present, and the impossibility of the future
I thought that this book was pretty good. I'll admit I didn't have very high expectations for this book, for some reason I just had the feeling that I wasn't going to like it, but I was definitley wrong. I found myself really getting into this book, I thought that the charcter were wriiten very well especially Grace and Sam and I also found that the plot in this book kept me engaged the whole way through and found myself really liking the changes in point of view, I found that this made the book a whole lot more interesting for me as we got to see what both Grace and Sam were thinking. I also found myself really feeling sorry for what Grace and Sam were going through and I think that that was due to how realisticially the characters were written and in the last few chapeters of the book really feeling Grace's sadness. Overall I thought that this was a very well written book and it made a wonderful start to the series.
