My Review:

Don’t get me wrong, but I love Blue and her Raven Boys; however, this story took me FOREVER to get in to, and I was completely dumbfounded by certain aspects of it. First off, lets start with what I loved:

  • I loved how the relationship between Blue and the Raven Boys has grown. They are a true group of friends who become each others family.
  • As the reader you learn a lot more about the psychics and who they pan out with the storyline.
  • Blue develops more depth and history.
  • Gansy learns to control his extravagances and how even though he was always extravagant with good intentions, sometimes it still hurt.
  • Ronan has HISTORY! We learn that he is not some wanna be skin head. He is a real person with a dangerously delicious past.

Things I did not like:

  • Adam as a whole. I felt that he overstepped his boundaries because he was hurt. He spends this entire novel whining, and it was TOO much. I would have written him out of the story by now.
  • Blue’s half-Aunt (can’t even remember her name) what happens? I need to know!!
  • Mr. Gray is a wonderful character, but I felt that his decisions were wrong. And how will this affect Blue and her boys, not to mention her mother.

Overall a wonderful entry in to the Raven Cycle, and a must read. Hopefully, the next book will be just a fabulous as the first.
