The Raven King - Maggie Stiefvater

General Info
Rating: ★★★★★

Where I got it: Online bookstore

Short reaction: NooOOOooo I wasn’t ready for the end!! I need more!!

Fav Quote: “He was a book, and he was holding his final pages, and he wanted to get to the end to find out how it went, and he didn't want it to be over.”

Nothing living is safe. Nothing dead is to be trusted.

For years, Gansey has been on a quest to find a lost king. One by one, he’s drawn others into this quest: Ronan, who steals from dreams; Adam, whose life is no longer his own; Noah, whose life is no longer a lie; and Blue, who loves Gansey… and is certain she is destined to kill him.

Now the endgame has begun. Dreams and nightmares are converging. Love and loss are inseparable. And the quest refuses to be pinned to a path.

Overall opinion: Aaarhhhh I still can’t believe it is actually over!! I wasn’t ready for it to end!! Seriously I feel like crying every time I think about the fact that it is over… no new stories about Blue and the Boys! L I don’t think I can handle that!! This whole series is so dear to me!! It will have a special place in my heart forever!! I already want to reread it!!

Writing: The writing was so beautiful!! It got better with every book! And this last book just took my breath away, it was that beautiful! Maggie Stiefvater has managed to touch me with her writing like almost no other author has managed to do before! I am already aching to read it again! I’ve become so addicted to her writing! I don’t think that I can live without it!

Plot: The ending of the series was beyond perfect!! It was everything I could ever hope for!! It was still bittersweet though… because it was still the end and I just can’t get over that! This story will stay with me for a long time!! It was so phenomenal, magical and wonderful! I will never forget it!

Characters: Ahh all my sweet Raven Boys, Blue, the amazing women from 300 Fox way and all the other characters!! I am going to miss them so much! I’ve grown so attached to them over the course of these four books! I feel like I know every single one of them personally!! There are no words to describe how much I’ve grown to love all these amazing characters!!

Relationships: The relationships were so satisfying!! I love how everything worked out in the end!! I really enjoyed seeing all the characters grow towards each other, and fall in love! But I mainly loved the strong friendship between the boys! I feel like that is one of the main aspects of this series and was so well done!! It such a strong friendship! I love it!!

Layout: Of course the cover of this book is absolutely stunning!! This one is by far my favourite of the series!! Look at it!! It is sooo gorgeous!! I want to keep looking at this book forever!!

Flaws: There isn’t a single flaw in this book! None at all!! This books was pure perfection and I am so happy that I got to read this amazing series!!

Sum-up: They always say: ‘’Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened’’ But I am still going to cry some more!! Why did it have to end so soon!! This series is so wonderful, amazing, magical, phenomenal and so much more!! Everyone should read it! The ending was bittersweet, and even though the story is over, the dream lives on. And what a beautiful dream that is!! I believe a lot more people need to experience that!
