The fourth and final installment in the spellbinding series from the irrepressible, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater.

All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love’s death. She doesn’t believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

So, I’ve come to realize that reviewing The Raven Cycle isn’t that easy.
Because reviewing some other book is fine, you just point out stuff you didn’t like, or stuff that you liked, whether you agree with the characters’ decisions/actions or not, but it’s totally different with this series.
What I’m trying to say here is that I rather have feelings towards the characters or their feelings/actions rather then actual opinions on them. Am I making any sense right now? Probably not, but let’s get to the review, or try, at least.

Obviously this was a reread for me, I read it last year, but pretty much forgot everything that happened in this series save for one thing, which is what happens in this book, at the very end, the Glendower-thing. Don’t worry, I won’t say what it is because of spoilers (i’m not a monster, k?) but I remember being so so so furious and angry and disappointed.
Maybe I still am, just a little bit, but now I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s fine, so I’m not as bitter about it as I was.

I know that I say this about every single book in this series, but this might be my favorite, for real this time.
First and most important reason is that Adam and Ronan happen! THEY HAPPEN! THEY ARE HAPPENING! It is happening, it is here, we’re dead, we’re ready.
I’m so sorry, I’m just so excited. I probably shouldn’t have read this series now, because by the time Call down the Hawk arrives, I’ll forget everything, knowing my memory.
But other than that, I don’t regret a thing about rereading this series, it just made me connect even more to the characters, to them.

I’m trying to find anything to talk about that’s not a spoiler, but it’s pretty hard…oh, wait! We find out how Persephone, Maura and Calla met! OMG! Just those couple of sentences! I honestly I want more…I’d want them, too, to get book(s), maybe show us all of their lives before they met and then slowly have them meet! Ah, I’d read that!

I can’t believe that it’s actually over, I have zero clues if we’re gonna get any of them in Call down the Hawk, I’m desperately hoping, but I’m dubious, as well, maybe the author thinks that their stories are over? I mean, in a way they are because it was always about finding Glendower but it’s so much more now! I don’t wanna have to say goodbye to any of them, I want more fighting between Ronan and Blue, Ronan and Calla and just…Ronan with everyone, I guess?

I don’t really know anything at this point, only that I can’t wait for Call down the Hawk, it’s my most anticipated book ever, ever, ever, and I’d just wanna get my freaking hands on it so I can devour it, which I don’t wanna do, because of having to wait another year.
And then they (we) whine that we have to wait a week for a tv show episode! How about an actual year?! Or even more than that?!

Okay, don’t mind me here, just having an actual panic attack, but it’s fine, everything’s fine.
Let’s end this review, it was super fun and amazing times rereading these, if you haven’t reread them, I’d highly suggest you do, because it’s so much better.

Thanks for reading my review that probably made no sense whatsoever, see ya next time!

Spread some love
