Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good I absolutely LOVED some of the storylines with certain characters, but then felt like others were kind of structured haphazardly or not tied up as well as I wanted. Mostly, I would have liked more time to actually feel/process stuff with the characters. I definitely love books 2 & 3 more, but this one was still good. I just needed more resolution...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I did not think I could love the Raven Cycle any more than I did until I read this book! I've heard fans saying that it was disappointing and rushed, so I guess that made me lower my expectations, but this book was anything but those things! It was very reminiscent of the first book in the sense that it was creepy and mysterious and confusing and I needed to know everything right away!! I cannot express how happy this series made me, it was a perfect ending with the hint of something more to come (cough cough the RONAN TRILOGY OMG I CANT EVEN!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Paranormal Series This is one of the best paranormal series I have ever read and you will fall in love with these characters. The characters are three dimensionally and you are just rooting for them the entire time. Great atmosphere and beautiful writing as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lush, Magical, Addicting MY THOUGHTS: 1. I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS POSSIBLE FOR MAGGIE STIEFVATER'S WRITING TO GET BETTER BUT HOLY COW IT DID. From the very first page, she gorgeously drew us back into her magically realistic world and I WAS ABSOLUTELY ENTRANCED. 2. My main problem with book three, Blue Lily, Lily Blue was the PACE. It was just so slow with so many unnecessary tiny plot developments and I was scared that The Raven King would be the same. IT WASN'T. I was sucked in from the first page with some delicious writing and plot lines and just the anticipation that THIS WAS THE BOOK WE'D FIND GLENDOWER. 3. I officially have a new favourite couple in YA Literature that take me breath away every time they interact or kiss or hang out. SPOILER: "Ronan wrenched his tie loose. "You working after school?" "With a dreamer." He held Ronan's gaze over his locker door. School had improved. ... Adam smiled cheerily. Roman would start wars and burn cities over that true smile, elastic and amiable. " *** "His feelings for Adam were an oil spill; he'd let them overflow and now there wasn't a damn place in the ocean that wouldn't catch fire if he dropped a match." LIKE I SAID. I FELL, AND I FELL HARD. Please tell me this means that Adam will be there in the Ronan Trilogy because NEED. HELLO? I will combust into a puddle of happiness and feels to have an entire TRILOGY about these two. 4. The ending was very... Abrupt. There was a particular revelation about one of the Raven Boys that was SHOCKING but other than that, I found it sub-par and lacking the greatness I expected from it. Still, with Adam and Ronan and my heart soaring, I honestly didn't care much for this aspect of the ending. 5. I don't know WHAT I felt about certain characters including the Laumoniers, Piper Greenmantle and ESPECIALLY Henry Cheng. I sort of begrudged them a space in the story, but I did t care for them at all. Let's be honest, I'm TRASH for this series. It's one of the best out there, in my opinion BECAUSE it's so different. I cannot recommend it enough because when you fall, you will FALL HARD AND THERE WILL BE NO COMING BACK AND, really, ISN'T THAT WHAT YOU WANT ANYWAY? The Raven Cycle is an addicting, magical, lush, spellbinding quartet that will leave you gasping for more. 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need More I have always been a big Maggie and The Raven Boys fan, this was amazing. So sad that the series has ended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rather disappointing ending... Well, it was a "happy ending", but the number of plot holes that the author left unresolved took away from my enjoyment of the book. The resolution also felt rather hand-wavey and vague; I have more questions that I do answers about the story now. Overall, mixed feelings. Wouldn't read again.
