Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
Good news and bad news. This third book in the Raven cycle will not disappoint. Blue is still looking for her missing mom, her and the boys and still searching for dead Welsh king Glendower, and she and Gansey are still fighting their attraction to each other. OK, that’s what readers signed up for. The bad news is that this isn’t the last book and Stiefvater is still keeping the major mystery of the dead king under wraps. While I adore this story, I was ready for it to conclude, so I was a little sad when I realized about two-thirds of the way through that there was no way to tie up all the story lines in this book. I do adore the characters and am still recommending this to fans of the cycle, fantasy readers and Stiefvater fans. Perhaps it’s just me getting tired of the never-ending series books, but I am longing for stories that begin and end in one book, even if it’s a huge, fat tome.
