The third installment in the mesmerizing series from the irrepressible, number one New York Times best-selling author Maggie Stiefvater.
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.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue is the third book in the Raven Cycle series. I have been slowly making my way through this series over the last few months to see what all the hype is about with this well loved (or hated) series. I find myself somewhere in the middle. I’m not totally in love with it, but I don’t hate it.
This book started off very slowly. I think the only reason I really got through the first half without DNFing was because of the narrator. I listened to this book and the narrator does such an incredible job. He gives voices to all the different characters and there were some singing parts that just gave me the chills.
By the end of the book I was pretty hooked, with the cliff hangar and the little bit of news we were given about a certain someone reappearing, I’m currently listening to the final book because I need to know what happens. So while the beginning of the story was a big slow, the end definitely made up for it with plenty of action and surprise.
The one thing that I really notice when thinking about this story is how inventive I feel I’ve become in these characters. I feel like I really know them and I’m invested in their well being and success of their quest. Between Blue and Gansey, Ronan and Adam, and Noah, sweet sweet Noah. Then there’s all the supporting characters like all the ladies that live with Blue, even the bad guys are pretty interesting.
Overall, this was not my favorite in the series and I’m not freaking out about how much I love these books like so many others. But I did like it. It was alright, entertaining and I’m interested to see where the story will go in the final book.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
