Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception

Sixteen-year-old Deirdre Monaghan is a painfully shy but prodigiously gifted musician. She's about to find out she's also a cloverhand—one who can see faeries. When a mysterious boy enters her ordinary suburban life, seemingly out of nowhere, Deirdre finds herself infatuated. Trouble is, the enigmatic and conflicted Luke turns out to be a gallowglass—a soulless faerie assassin—and Deirdre is meant to be his next mark. Deirdre has to decide if Luke's feelings towards her are real, or only a way to lure her deeper into the world of Faerie.

Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie

Nuala is part faerie muse, part human. While the freedom to sing or write or create is denied her, her mark across history is unmistakable: a trail of brilliant poets, musicians, and artists who have died tragically young. She has sympathy for their abbreviated life spans, but every sixteen Halloweens, she burns in a bonfire and rises from her ashes with no memories of what has come before other than the knowledge of how her end will come. However, this time, she fell in love. With a bagpiper named James Morgan, for he is the first to deny her.

This sadistically witty and humorous tale will have you laughing until the bloody end.

Shiver

Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she cannot seem to live without since her attack by the wolfs six years ago meant her meeting with the yellow-eyed wolf - her wolf-. Since the incident, something happened between the two, a connection the grew every winter when the wolf would come watch Grace as she settle in her yard and watched him back all day, and the following to come. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl, the girl he saved, the one who would change him in the near future. In summer, he gains a few precious months of being human; of having an opportunity to talk to the girl he saved, but not having the courage to do it until the cold makes him shift back again. However, incidents happen that let them meet again.

Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. Since he was hurt, Grace hides Sam in her house and eventually love comes, and Sam becomes Grace's boyfriend. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human—or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Shiver has been licensed in over 32 foreign territories[7] and remained on the bestseller list for over 32 weeks, selling 130,996 copies in 2009.[8]

Shiver is a YRCA 2012 Senior Division book.

Linger

In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past... and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabel, who already lost her brother to the wolves... and is nonetheless drawn to Cole. At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love - the light and the dark, the warm and the cold - in a way you will never forget.

Film adaptations

Unique Features, in association with Warner Bros., optioned Shiver's film rights shortly after Shiver was released.[9]. A screenplay has been written by Nick Pustay[10] but casting has not yet begun.[11]
