My Thoughts

I’m such a sucker for Cole and Isabel. In all honesty, they’re probably my original OTP. So, imagine my surprise when I was scrolling through Instagram only to pass a fan art of the amazing pair. Naturally, the only way to handle that was to dig through my Kindle archive and reread Sinner. And, boy, am I glad I did.

I had forgotten how much I love Cole. I had forgotten how much I adored Isabel. And I had forgotten how much I reveled in Maggie Stiefvater’s writing.

Cole and Isabel are at their best in their book of the series. The journeys and bounds they made in the previous books prove to be only the beginning or their climb out of the rabbit hole. And really, if you’re like me, you’ll spend most of the book screaming, “The only way out is together!” The ebb and flow of their relationship keeps the pages flying. Are they together? Aren’t they? How are you going to explain this situation away, Cole? It’s a never-ending wheel of questions and face-palms and glorious shipping.

Then there’s Maggie’s writing. It’s always perfect. It’s always reflective of the characters and their personalities and reveals all you need and just quite not enough. I highlighted entire chapters of this book. The creative word weaving and storytelling still captivates me as if it were my first time reading the book.

All in all, I could probably read books about Cole and Isabel’s escapades for the rest of my life and still be left craving more. These two are dynamic and destined for one another, and Sinner is just the novel to tell their story in full.
