The fourth and final installment in the spellbinding series from the irrepressible, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater.
All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love’s death. She doesn’t believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
Okay. I think I’m finally ready. My mind and body resisted the end of this series so much. I bit my nails down to nubs.
Anyway, this was a fantastic conclusion to a fantastic series. I got so attached to these characters and their stories, it was hard to let go, but I couldn’t have asked for a better ending. It felt right, which is something I appreciate when I put so much time into reading it.
Since I try my hardest to write spoiler-free reviews, I can’t say much about the plot, so I’ll write about reading it. I loved experiencing Maggie’s writing over the last few months. I admit, I had no idea what I was getting into when I started The Raven Boys, but I don’t regret it. It’s such a unique story, so different from Shiver, but with the same fantastic writing. It’s so dark and heartwarming and tense and uplifting all at the same time. I just can’t express my love for this series in words. I can’t wait until I buy my own copies!
