Review: The Raven King – Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven King made me want The Raven Cycle to be circular, never-ending, always continuing, the mystery always just around the next corner… The Raven King is a beautiful, emotional culmination of Stiefvater’s The Raven Cycle series. Most things truly do come full circle, the characters continue to grow and evolve, and the overall plot makes complete sense. And I’m wondering, weeks after I finished reading, if I really have to make sense with my review? Or can I just mostly squee and say that everyone in the world who enjoys reading needs to read The Raven Cycle? Can I just say that Stiefvater is a literary genius? One who knows how to weave words together so that they make […]

Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater

WOW! What else can I say about Blue Lily, Lily Blue? It was awesome – and I’m so happy I don’t have to wait for The Raven King! So much happened in Blue Lily, Lily Blue, and yet, not that much time actually passed for these amazing characters as the story unfolded. Between missing parents, new, nefarious characters showing up for dark reasons, and more about both dreams and what Adam is capable of, I was enchanted from start to finish! The world is so tangible, even if this is fantasy, I really felt like I could stretch out my hand and touch the trees in Crabeswater, or hug Blue when she needed it. And some characters I found to […]

Review: The Dream Thieves – Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Dream Thieves – Maggie Stiefvater

The Dream Thieves is a darkly beautiful story, with intricate, full-grown characters who continue to grow and evolve throughout the various plot-lines. As always, when reading a Stiefvater novel, I was immediately transported to another world, with vivid characters, a dark but promising story, a mystery and plot-lines that slowly but surely got weaved together to make a whole picture. I couldn’t even say what’s my favorite part of her writing – I love that the characters are so well developed, and that they keep evolving and changing as the story and the plot is moved forward. The Dream Thieves is both character driven and plot-driven, both are important, and play together to show the complexity of all that is […]

Review: The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys is a fantastic mystical tale of Blue and three boys from the Aglionby academy in Henrietta. The quest for the ley-line and its opening had me at the edge of my seat, and kept me wondering why it has taken me so long to read this book! My The Raven Boys review: Dark and mysterious, The Raven Boys grabbed me from the first line, and kept me entertained for the whole story! Blue is a great main character, and I loved that she was so sensible, even if she also managed to show that she does have a wild streak, too. The Aglionby boys were so different, but somehow they still had a unity to them, and […]

Review: The Scorpio Races – Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Scorpio Races – Maggie Stiefvater

I had no idea what to expect when I picked up The Scorpio Races, and I was completely blown away by it all! The characters, the vicious cappal uisce and the mystery surrounding both them and the race. Puck had to fight for everything she believed in to save her home and her little brother, and Sean gave his all to save the cappal uisce he considered to be his own, while working hard to keep other riders and horses alive and well too.
