REVIEW| The Raven King

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4)
Maggie Stiefvater



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.


By far this has got to be the prettiest book cover of the series. The gradient shades and tones of blue to grey are something that you just have to admire by the artist- Christopher Stengel. It's just so suiting to the colours that I have always assumed with our protagonist-- Blue Sargent. As well as being the main colour that is representative of my overall reading emotion throughout this book. I mean come on! It is the last one- and the whole Gansy situation.

Maggie- maggie, maggie... Can you write more books in this style of prose? Please? 

*slides over a crumpled fiver across the internet*

Honestly, these books are definitely an improvement from Stiefvater's Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy? Series? Anyway, it's not just the improvement on her writing style on something that is much more experimental in terms of traditional storytelling that left me craving more of this legend-like tale. Not only this, Stiefvater's characters seemed to be continuing to hit their mark, practically breathing off the page with the one-liners so often thought off teenagers, captured so effortlessly by Stiefvater-- and leaving me in a fit off giggles long into the night.
