So this fourth and final book in The Wolves of Mercy Falls series follows Cole and Isabel. Cole comes to L.A. to be with Isabel and while he's there he figures he would get back into music. He agrees to be on a 6 week long reality show for a woman who is well known for trying to break her celebrities. He fights to be the person he wants and not the person he was. He tries resisting temptation in the form of drugs, alcohol, and the hardest one, the wolf. All the while trying to make a new album and most importantly win Isabel's heart.

Isabel who was forced to come back to L.A. by her parents, is now an adult. Her mother and father are seperated and she and her mom live with Isabel's aunt and teenage cousin. She's working at fashion boutique and studying to be a doctor. When Cole shows up at her job out of nowhere she knows she fell for him and wants to believe he is there for her, but she can't. She struggles to get out of her own way and find faith in Cole so they can be together.

In my opinion this book was the best of the series. Although I do believe many would disagree with me. There is no Sam or Grace other than a line or two from Cole's point of view. The wolf aspect of the series is a minor foot note in this book. The impending doom that was felt in the first three books is not found here. However, I found this book to be fast pace and relatable. I find Cole and Isabel to be a better love focus than Sam and Grace were. This was truely a romance story. Where as I loved every book in the series this was the best. And the ending was everything I could hope for leaving a sense of closure to the entire series not just the book. ( )

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Sinner

Out of Boundary Woods and into LA, Sinner takes readers on a wild ride with Cole as he tries to win back Isabel. Cole struggles to become a better person. Instead of escaping into drugs or alcohol, he is one syringe away from becoming a werewolf. On the other hand, Isabel fights against the emptiness that is beginning to consume her. And as alluring as Cole is, she dreads being attached to someone who may simply cast her to the side.

Filled with complex emotions, Sinner is a battle between ice and fire. Isabel and Cole are at constant odds, and when they are on the pages together be prepared for sparks to fly. The tension between them is intense as they trade sarcasm and witty comebacks. But as much as their back and forth was entertaining at first, the repetitive nature became somewhat draining to the storyline.

Years ago when I first read Sinner, the amount of drama between Cole and Isabel entertained me. And while it engaged me as a reader in my twenties, now that I am revisiting the characters in my thirties, I wondered why they continued to try. I also recognize that I am no longer part of the target audience for Sinner and am now looking at this from the approach of how this book fosters unhealthy relationships.

The fantasy elements that originally drew me to The Wolves of Mercy Falls are also almost nonexistent. I did think it was a creative twist to have Cole addicted to becoming a werewolf, instead of using drugs, but this made the fantasy more of a plot device than actual context. Sinner focuses heavily on relationships, drama, and addiction. Would I recommend this for young adults? Yes, I think it does hit the right marks for older young adults due to its content. But I think this one will be just for young adults. ( )

A great wrap-up/companion. We really didn't need more from Sam or Grace, but Isabel and Cole needed to complete their story.

I love that MS can write such diverse characters that are realistic and believable, and still be recognizable as individuals. Her characters have issues to deal with, but they do it in real ways. That is more apparent in the Raven Cycle than in Sinner, but it's still a part of this story. This is more difficult than it sounds as most authors who try to add "quirks" to their characters just end up with wacky strange ones, not meaningful people who are trying to grow and change.

One fun thing about reading this now is that after I met MS this summer I can hear her voice in her characters. It adds just a little more life to them for me. I may need to go back and re-read the others soon to get the same experience.

The only big hang-up I had with this story was with Isabel. If she hates people and touching people so much, what is her real motivation to becoming a doctor? And why does she have to work so hard to keep up her harsh image? If it was really her, it wouldn't be work to be herself. I know she was working on changing herself, but it just wasn't quite enough for me.

Overall, a great read for her fans. And most anyone else who likes a little paranormal in their everyday world. ( )
