2014 book 217

Maggie Stiefvater's Blue Lily, Lily Blue
AHHHaaaagHRHRSGGA new Raven Cycle book!!!!! I mean, do I need to say anything more than that? And should I, since I bet all of you are worried about spoilers? Let me be vague, then. This is super exciting and interesting and full of great characters, just like the first two. Various people develop their skills. Various new characters come into play. The ending is just as much of a crazy-ass game changer as the endings of the first two books. I did feel like this one had a lot of STUFF going on and was maybe more plot-driven than character-driven, but I think that impression might change on a less frantic/excitable reread.  And again, let me thank Stiefvater for writing a series where romance exists, but where adventurin' takes top billing. Such adventurin'!! AND the books are such an interesting meditation on class! Ah, this series is so good. A/A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in October.
