Review: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

the raven kingOkay I’ve been trying to write this review for days now.  How do I put into words how much I loved this book? How much I loved this series? And how much I’m going to miss these characters? I’m not sure I can. On so many levels this was everything I wanted it to be. It was atmospheric. It was at times intense. It was romantic. It was creepy. It was surprising. It had happy endings and ambiguous endings. It answered a lot questions but asked some more. In true Maggie fashion, she closed the door on some story lines but kept others open to interpretation.  It had a little bit of everything.  I was left wanting more because I am not ready to say goodbye but at the same time I’m satisfied with how she ended it.  It’s been over a week since I finished it and I still have so many Feels!  I guess I’m not going to write about the plot or the characters because I written about both many times and I don’t want to spoil anything but I will say this. This series should be read by all.  Not just by Teens or adults who read YA.  It should be read by fantasy lovers even though it’s not a straight fantasy.  It should be read by literary fans even though many might turn their nose up to that.  It should be read by history lovers, especially those Anglo Saxon fans. It should just be read!.  So that’s it.  I say see you later to Blue, Gansey, Ronan, Adam, Noah, Maura, Calla, Mr. Gray, Henry and Persephone.  This may be our last visit but here’s hoping we will meet again some time down the road.
