Book #81: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

The third installment in the all-new series from the #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs. 

The trick with found things, though, is how easily they can be lost.

Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater is the third book in the Raven Cycle series. It starts shortly after book two ended. Blue and her Raven Boys are in the search for Blue’s mother who went underground to find Blue’s father.

In comparison to the other two, this book did advance the plot, brought to life the big baddie, but also wasn’t my favorite. It’s not that it was bad, it’s just not up to par with book 2 (I love you, Ronan!).

We see more of Blue’s personal struggle of school, family, and uncertainty of where she stands in her group of Raven Boys. In the process of that, we learn more about just what Blue is metaphysically capable of.

In all, it was a good addition to the series and I’m still in love with the world Stiefvater has crafted. With that, I only have one more book to read. It is bittersweet, but knowing she has another series set in this world gives me hope.

Plus there’s the SyFy channel show coming up soon!

Final Rating: 3/5
