Reminiscent of the many threads introduced in THE RAVEN BOYS, BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE once again widens the lens of this world to follow oh so many stories at once. With more of a focus on action than relationships, BLUE LILY covers significant ground, and yet, feels paradoxically shorter than its predecessors.
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven Cycle is a tip of the tongue puzzle, at once familiar and alien and ever fascinating. In THE RAVEN BOYS, Stiefvater gave us not just one heroine, not just one hero, but a world where it seemed every character carried their own seeds of greatness. In THE DREAM THIEVES, that world spirals ever deeper to reveal explore the villains in the cast. Beneath the emptiness and destruction lie boys that want to be loved, that want to be powerful, that just want and want and want as they burn up the world.
Maggie Stiefvater is not a writer. She is a magical creature who spins stories and creates worlds so real readers can taste, touch, and breathe them in. THE RAVEN BOYS, the first book in the new Raven Cycle series is a wonderfully strange tale that takes just a little time to sink into before running off with the heart and imagination of every reader fortunate enough to read it.
