So far Blue Lily, Lily Blue is the most action packed book in The Raven Cycle series. While everyone is looking for Blue’s mother, Maura, new characters show up in town causing even more havoc. It feels like the Raven Boys and Blue are being hit on all sides and they still haven’t found Glendower. The stress and anticipation is building because just as the group discovers more answers they’re also left with even more questions.
I have to say this book was my favorite so far. We learned a lot more about each of the characters and it really feels like the Raven Boys and Blue’s friendship is super solid now. Also the addition of Gansey’s friend, Malory, to the group was really funny and interesting since he’s an old man. It was cool seeing how Ronan and Adam bonded over their annoyance with Malory, and Malory’s dog was also an interesting addition.
The ending of this book really took me by surprise and once again I absolutely loved it. I definitely understand now what Maggie Stiefvater was saying about how she always ends her books on a cliffhanger. She really does. I’m so glad I already have The Raven King because if I had to wait to get it from the library I would’ve been very upset. I don’t know how people waited years to know what happened next. I would’ve lost it.
I’m super excited and also very nervous to now be on the last book in the series. I don’t want it to end but I also really want to know what happens. If you haven’t picked up the Raven Cycle series yet make sure to do so ASAP. It’s definitely worth a read.
There was something unfamiliar about him. Something ferocious about his eyes, some sort of bite in his faint smile. Something altogether hectic and unsettled. She stood on the ledge of his smile and looked over the edge.
