My Review

So far this is my favorite book of the Raven Cycle. It was so good. I love the characters and I love the world.

Blue wants her mother back. All she knows is that her mother is underground. Her mother abandoned her before the start of Blue’s senior year. She is upset and worried, all at the same time.

Gansey wants to find Glendower. That has been his goal from the beginning. Now he is getting closer to that goal. The question becomes, “What do we do next?” They are so close and the clues are all leading underground.

Adam wants to be able to make his own choices. However, he gave up that bit in the ritual to awaken Cabeswater. Now he needs to learn how to communicate with the forest. He needs to understand what Cabeswater wants him to do.

Ronan would do anything for Gansey. Also, he would do anything for his younger brother. He is devoted in his own way. He isn’t like everyone else and he is more okay with that in this book. Ronan is more … almost nice to Blue and the others. It might just be me but it seems like some of his hostility is gone.

The Raven Boys and Blue go to some pretty interesting places. They learn more about Cabeswater. They learn more about Glendower. They learn more about Blue.
