“Queens and kings, Kings and queens. Blue lily, lily blue. Crowns and birds, Swords and things. Blue lily, lily blue”
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.
I went into this book with a lot of very high expectations and I am glad to say that most of them were certainly met.
As always, I love the development of the characters. I love Maggie’s writing and the magic that she brings to the world she has created. I love the relationships and the interactions and I love the growth both characters and plot.
This book had action, drama, mystery and as always a great cast to undergo numerous trials in the search for their king, and now they are closer than ever. Sadly, they are also now in more danger than ever and you never know what’s going to happen when you flip the page.
Still, I must say, I wanted more. My mind wasn’t blown away by this one and I was desperately hoping that it would be. This though does not lessen my excitement for The Raven King. If anything, I am now afraid to read it because I know that so many things are just waiting to happen.
Lastly, can I just point out how great Piper and Colin Greenmantle are? I mean, yes, they are the evil, murderous bad guys, but if Maggie could write a book just about them and their previous adventures, I would read it in a second. They are such an entertaining pair!
