I can't wait to read the last story. I enjoyed Blue's relationship with Jesse.

The story really moved along in this volume, leaving us with some intriguing developments for book four. We meet the antagonist who hired Mr. Gray and he is a completely vile, sociopath who is somehow hilarious. And our resident "magician," Adam, is learning what his deal with the magic... Read More »

The fourth book Raven Cycle was fascinating. I really like fantasy and psychics. Each character was clearly drawn. Stiefvater writes very well, drawing me in, seducing me into believing the most preposterous things. I couldn't wait for the next chapter and for the next book. I was very disappointed when I was notified that I would have to wait until January, 2018, for the final book and then very pleased when it arrived the day after I finished the third book.

Maura is missing, and the only clue that Blue and the Raven Boys have to go on is that she is somewhere underground. As the school year once again rolls around, Blue is left feeling incomplete and slightly lost, biding her time and feeling like there is nothing she can do. Adam works with Persephone in learning how to communicate with Cabeswater and how to help it. Ronan keeps disappearing to the Barns to try and wake hi father's sleeping dreams. And Gansey has called his fellow ley line hunter Malory to the States and continues his search for the lost Welsh king. Things start to get even stranger than normal when Noah begins to manifest in a haunting sort of way, when Greenmantle shows up at Aglionby as the new Latin teacher, and Blue helps to discover the existence of a cursed cave that may connect with Cabeswater, and may lead her to her mother.
This book is another roller coaster, seemingly slower than the first two until the final fifty pages, where you're left gripping the book in equal parts anticipation and horror.
Great read, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the writing sometimes got confusing and at times took away from the story (but not enough that the book wasn't still enjoyable)

Absolutely amazing book. I reread this series whenever the next book comes out and I love it every time. Teen romance mixed with old tales of knights and kings mixed with magic, an old car, and a curse that will torture readers till death due they part.

This book was interesting. I am so far liking this series, but it has not captured my heart yet which I had hoped it would. I read it fairly quickly, and the plot just keeps intensifying. I really can not wait to see what the final book will bring.
Maggie Stiefvater has a way of ending books with cliffhangers that you know are going to change everything but you can't see it directly. It is currently tearing at my insides.

In ways, it doesn't uphold the bar set by the two prior books, but at the same time, I'm glad this book was slower paced, and gave more story line this time instead of the character driven love the series runs on.

Better than average, just disappointing after a bangup start with Books One and Two, this book is something of a dog's breakfast. I have read One, Two, and Three each twice, and I hope nobody ever asks me explain what happens in Book Three. I am disliking more and more characters as the series goes on, but still hoping for a happy/spectacular ending when Book Four arrives. Just as a random comment, I am an adult, way too old for the target audience, but all my life I've been mad at books where the teenagers have unrestricted drivers licenses, no curfew or parental oversight, easily acquire and hold adult jobs, and yet they're all still young enough to be in high school. This book goes further in that the rich children own and rent their own real estate. Oh, fantasy-land. When I was their age, I had to be home in time for dinner, and as for going out visiting strange men, my mom would've... <grumble, grumble>

2.5 stars. I don't know what to say this time, as I didn't enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed the other two books. It kind of feels like similar things keep happening in each book, and it takes away from the feeling of the whole storyline actually progressing. The series and each individual book feel like that are moving very slowly. There are some interesting new discoveries and characters in this book, and I am very attached to the gang, but overall, I didn't find the story all that compelling. And Piper, yet another new villain, is annoying as all get out. It's rare that I am annoyed with rather than angered by/afraid of villain.

This weather reminds me of this dreadful climb I went on with this fellow Pelham,” Malory muttered, producing an umbrella from his person and sharing it with Blue. “Fourteen kilometers each way, and all for a standing stone that looked like a dog in certain lights. The man went on and on about football and his girlfriend - a terrible time was had by all.

Calla liked things you could rely on: filing systems, months with thirty-one days, purple lipstick.

"Two is a terrible number. Two is for rivalry and fighting and murder".
"Or marriage", Adam said, thinking.
"Same thing", Persephone replied.
