Hey Epic Geeks,

As you know, I’ve been really enjoying The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater. Today, I’m bringing you the fourth and final review. If you’re not read the other three books first, don’t hesitate to check out those reviews first! All of my reviews have a spoiler-free and spoiler section!

Full review of Blue Lily, Lily Blue

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater is the final book in The Raven Cycle. Going in, I was nervous. Endings are hard and some authors can’t do it. The web of secrets she’s weaved throughout the books needed to be finalized and wrapped up.

Just like all of the other books in The Raven Cycle, The Raven King received a five-star review. The Raven King wasn’t the best of the series, but Maggie Stiefvater still did a wonderful job tying up all of the loose ends. New characters were introduced with ease, as usual, and she led us to the end with twists and turns.

Overall, The Raven King was an amazing conclusion/wrap up to the entire series. I will definitely miss all of the characters though. Who wouldn’t?

 

In the mean time, keep calm and stay epic,

Kayla

    These books have been in my tbr list for a long long time. I think I’m gonna have to move the books up

    • That’s how I was. All of my reviews have a spoiler-free section and then a click-to-show spoiler section. I have one up for each of the four books in this series.

      The series is definitely worth a read! If you’re into audiobooks, they were fantastic.

    Great review. This series is definitely going on my wishlist.

    • Thank you!

      Audiobooks for this series were fantastic if that’s your fancy.

    I like how you arranged this!

    • Thank you! Originally, the idea was actually from some YouTubers who do their booktalks in two sections. I troubleshot a few things and this worked the best for a blog post.

  • Thank you for including the spoiler jump. This is a series that I imagine I will one day get around to because I have heard such great things about them. Definitely did not want them spoiled for me. Sounds like you liked them as well, so that gives me hope that I would as well. I always worry about series books and especially reaching the last book in a series. I always worry it will be horrible, but it sounds like this at least ties it all up and may not be the best, but at least it doesn’t jump the shark or anything.

    • You’re welcome! All of my reviews have a non-spoiler section then the click-to-show spoiler section. I hated the idea of splitting up in two posts and I still wanted to accommodate those who haven’t read the book.
      I have reviews of all of them in this series if you’d like to hear more info on the first book. I definitely go more in depth on character aspects and why it’s great.
      I agree with being nervous on finales. It’s scary to see the last book from a series you love, especially if you’ve never seen that author write an ending.

  • I’m adding this series to the TBR pile. I think endings are hard for every author, and the longer the series goes on, the more the ending tends to feel like a let down. Which book would you say was the best of the series?

    • I have reviews up for all of the books!

      I would say book three, Blue Lily, Lily Blue, is the best, however, that doesn’t discount the other two books. The first book was amazing and they just got better and better.

  • Another series that I’ll end up reading xDDDDD OMG, I need more hours during the day!

    • GOOD.
      There needs to be a dedicated reading hour (or hours) that everyone in the world must follow.
