“Blue Lily, Lily Blue” by Maggie Stiefvater

Blue Lily, Lily Blue
My favorite of all the covers in the series. Actually, this cover helped to spark my interest in the series.

This is one of three books I chose to read after doing the Try a Chapter tag. Blue Lily, Lily Blue is the third installment in a young-adult fantasy series by Maggie Stiefvater called Raven Boys, which is about a group of teenagers searching for the grave of an ancient Welsh king. I read the first book, The Raven Boys, last year as part of a readathon and enjoyed it. I read the second novel, The Dream Thieves, earlier this year but didn’t like it as much as I did the first. Blue Lily, Lily Blue isn’t as great as the first but it made me curious about how the story will end.

Quick overview:

The search for Glendower continues. I have to say that because, to me, the search paused in The Dream Thieves so Ronan could deal with his dreaming abilities and Adam could show that he’s an ass sometimes.

But in this installment, Ronan and Adam try to put a lid on their shit and not blow up all the time. Mallory hops the pond and joins Gansey and his friends on their search and the psychics try to be more helpful though their hints are still vague.

Noah still hangs around, but is a little creepy now, and Blue is trying navigate life as best she can despite her mom’s disappearance. Blue and the boys do succeed in waking someone, but the new villains also succeed in doing so too and now it’s anyone’s guess what the hell will happen in the end.
