Staff Reviews


The path toward finding Glendower becomes significantly more magical and twisty in this third installment of the Raven Cycle. It's difficult to pick a favorite aspect of this series, because every single one is so well-crafted. The characters continue to jump off the pages, developing into the people they will be when all is said and done; the writing continues to use the kind of bold-yet-mesmerizing figurative language that demands to be savored; the plot continues to unfold subtly, turning grand mythologies into an intricate story that weaves through both dark and light. There are countless reasons I have read The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves several times (and have several copies), and there is no question that Blue Lily, Lily Blue will reach the same fate. As my most anticipated book of 2014, this one did not disappoint—but then, does Stiefvater ever? — Paige Mushaw
