The thrilling continuation of The Raven Boys we learn many truths about the boys and we are plunged deep back into the wonderful world of Cabeswater and the Ganseygang.
As usual with my reviews, this one contains spoilers for The Dream Thieves so continue with caution.
With Cabeswater awake, Blue, Ronan, Adam and Gansey will never be the same. Ronan falls more deeply into his dreams they are intruding into his waking life. Also someone else is looking for the king..
I have read The Raven Cycle twice and have loved it more and more every time.
With the shocking truths revealed at the end of The Raven Boys regarding what really happened to Noah, Adam’s sacrifice in Cabeswater and the casual truth that Ronan threw at them.
Oh Ronan. I love Ronan Lynch. I can say a lot about Ronan Lynch, especially now that I am reading Call Down the Hawk. I can see Maggie’s appeal to keep writing about them, but I will scream about Call Down the Hawk in a whole other post.
What I liked: The slowburn is definitely a favorite aspect in the series, as is the moment when Ronan throws Noah out of the window (i laughed out loud the last time). I love the friendship building, the intimacy, the word play at times. This is definitely a comfort read.
What I didn’t like: The ending! Gah, Maura is so frustrating at times!
A quote: “While I’m gone,” Gansey said, pausing, “dream me the world. Something new for every night.”
My Rating: 5/5 stars
