Up and Coming: Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

Release Date: July 1, 2014

Everybody thinks they know Cole St. Claire. They knew him when he was the lead singer in the multi-million copy selling rockband NARKOTIKA and they knew him when he bottomed out and disappeared from the public eye. Now, they think they know him again, this time as the star of a reality television show. The Cole St. Claire they know is the ultimate rock star, bigger and badder than any before. The Cole St. Claire they know is not a wolf.

The Cole St. Claire that Isabel Culpepper knows is definitely a rock star, but he is also a messed up guy who is trying to get himself on the right path. He is charming and magnetic, but he also has moments where she can see through all of that. The Cole St. Claire Isabel knows feels all the feelings that Isabel is so good at walling herself off from. The Cole St. Claire that she knows had better not be a wolf.

Cole wants to be the guy that Isabel could really fall for. And he wants to be the guy that his fans once loved too. But he's not sure how to be both and not be consumed by the fame machine and left in small pieces on the LA interstate. Then there's the question of the wolf. He's only letting himself do that once in a while, just to clear his head... Nearly all the time he's on two legs not four. Plus, it's not illegal to become a wolf, so really, what harm could it do?

This is the latest book in Maggie Stiefvater's The Wolves of Mercy Falls series. But, Cole and Isabel are very different people than Grace and Sam. Where those two are romantic and dreamy, the world has left Cole and Isabel hard and jaded. LA is a long way from Minnesota. This book burns like a smoggy afternoon, you don't realize your sunburned until your skin is peeling.
