There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.
Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.
The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.
Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel
There’s just something gripping and…wild about this series. I went into The Raven Boys with wariness, but an open mind. I was hooked by The Dream Thieves. And 100% engrossed and in love with each and every character by Blue Lily, Lily Blue. What an interesting title, though, right? It makes sense once you read it, but it still makes you want to know the meaning behind it.
We were introduced to a new character this time around, but whom we’d heard of. Greenmantle. Does that ring a bell? Well it should. I spent a good few chapters trying to figure out where I’d heard the name before, until I asked a friend and they clued me in. AHAH! Nailed it! 😛
This time, he’s come to town to find his Greywaren, and with some interesting twists along the way. But Ronan and Adam won’t let him have it so easily.
The third instalment to an incredible series just gets better. There’s more mystery, now that Blue’s mother has disappeared. There’s still a spark between Blue and Gansey, which is just so heartbreakingly beautiful that I found myself gripping my chest and rocking back and forth. Seriously. It was just…so….
Something in the Ley Line is afoot, and it’s the gang’s job to fix it, but not without drama. Without giving too much away, this is one of those books that will keep you guessing and even at the end, with that bastard of a cliff hanger, you’ll be questioning what happened. I’d thought this was the last book when I went into it, but soon found out it wasn’t. I suppose I’m not the best at keeping track of when series end.
I can’t believe we have to wait so long for book 4, but I suppose I’ll have to. -Sigh-. I need to know what the hell is going on!
Once again, the writing was phenomenal and intense, descriptive and enticing. Funny, scary, and just a hint of swoon, this is definitely my favourite.
My half star knocked off because it took me longer to read and I found the odd bit a little slow going, but that’s just me.
