Publisher’s Comments
 (Courtesy of Goodreads):

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.

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.

My Thoughts: 

As befits a third installment to a series, the characters and plot continue to evolve and become more complex with the introduction of a few new (and incredibly unique) characters and multiple points of view and storylines. Each chapter seemed to have a new plot twist on top of plot twist that I didn’t see coming. So much to keep track of, but I am not complaining!  Even better than the memorable characters and engaging plot is the exquisite writing! Maggie Stiefvater is the queen of prose. Sometimes I found myself re-reading sentences just because they were so incredibly descriptive. The cycle concludes with The Raven King, to be released on September 29, 2015.

My Rating:4/5 Stars
