2016 book 77

Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven King
It's hard to know what to say about this without being spoiler-y. And it's hard to know how to feel about this book after so much build-up. I meant to reread all the others beforehand but never got around to it--I guess my enthusiasm for this series waned a little. It was mostly pretty good but parts felt like a cop-out and there were like twelve dei ex machina and not enough psychics and one fun new addition and I feel like I still have a lot of questions, particularly about the adult characters? But it was easy enough to devour it. I liked it. It just didn't hit the heights I expected. B+.
