There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.
Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.
The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.
Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.
Another really good book in the series. I’m ready for book 4!!! Seriously, Stiefvater loves some cliff-hangers.
She really is building quite a story here. It has tons of depth which is typically missing from YA books.
As you know, in my reviews of the last two books, I drew some parallels to Arthurian Legend. I’m struggling with this one. I know there is something there, I’m just not seeing it. I’m thinking maybe Blue’s mom, Maura, is a Lady of the Lake figure, but Persephone may fit that role as well. Also, I’m pretty sure The Gray Man and Greenmantle have Arthurian parallels. I’ll have to see what happens in the next book. Hopefully, they will become more evident. I’ll keep you updated.
Please read these books. They are really well written and engaging.
