For me, the supernatural Glendower plot line is secondary to the exploration of the relationships between Blue and her Raven Boys. Stiefvater focuses more attention on Adam’s character development in this book, and as he begins to let go of romantic feelings for Blue, feelings for one of the others in their group begin to grow. The Gansey-Blue romance, impossible though it may be, blossoms sweetly, leading readers to hope against hope that not all prophecies come true. The cliffhanger ending is, as always, a scream-inducer, but will make the last book in the series quite possibly the best one yet.
Highly recommended for gr. 9-12.
