All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love’s death. She doesn’t believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

In a starred review for Blue Lily, Lily BlueKirkus Reviews declared: “Expect this truly one-of-a-kind series to come to a thundering close.”

Why am I waiting on it?

Because the first three books were incredible and I cannot wait to see what happens in the finale. I know the synopsis of these books makes it seem like the romantic element is the main point of the story but I’ve found that to be much more a secondary and minor theme. The stories focus more on the friendship between the all of the characters, and I really love how realistically their feelings and thoughts about each other are described. I highly recommend!


  1. I haven’t read these yet but I’ve heard so many amazing things about them! Plus, the covers are all so gorgeous – especially this newest one. I have all of them sitting in my Amazon cart *maniacal laughter* time to go click order

  2. I want to give Maggie Stiefvater’s work another go. I read one of her books years ago that I wasn’t that into and I haven’t tried again since. But I’ve read nothing but good things about The Raven Boys. I also really like that she made John Green drive a race car.

  3. I’m so excited for this book! I still have to get through the second two books (libraries can be slow when everyone’s trying to read the same books and there’s only one copy), but I’m glad it’s taking me a while so that it’ll all still be fresh in my mind when The Raven King comes out.
