Description

The fourth and final installment in the spellbinding series from irrepressible, number-one New York Times best-selling author Maggie Stiefvater.

All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love's death. She doesn't believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.

In a starred review for Blue Lily, Lily Blue, Kirkus Reviews declared: "Expect this truly one-of-a-kind series to come to a thundering close."

Ce que les critiques disent

"Male or female, young or old, human or not, [narrator Will] Patton perfectly captures each character's voice and personality, maintaining the consistency of the series. He's a master at creating suspense, conveying action, and helping the listener feel the full weight of love and sorrow... This don't-miss performance rounds out an excellent young adult series with crossover appeal for older listeners." ( AudioFile)

Once in a Lifetime Series

“He was a book, and he was holding his final pages, and he wanted to get to the end to find out how it went, and he didn't want it to be over.”

This is truly a once in a lifetime series. If Harry Potter was my childhood, The Raven Cycle was my 20's. This series was perfect for me, and I don't think anyone could break the spell that this series and these characters have cast upon me.

“They were both hungry animals, but Adam had been starving for far longer.”

“Depending on where you began the story, it was about..." unconditional love and the power it can evoke. This book is the type of book that makes me want to be a better person. It makes me want to be more appreciative of my friends and family. It makes me so thankful that I have a love for reading and that it was instilled in me from a young age. It makes me feel so blessed that I'm able to read and able to read books like this. I'm eternally grateful to Maggie Stiefvater and her words that somehow penetrated my heart and built this perfect story.

I'm writing this review in actual tears, because this story is so beautiful and means so much to me. I probably sound really incoherent and this review is ending up just like my Shiver review, where I'm just fangirling, but sometimes while reading this series I felt like Maggie Stiefvater was writing this solely for me. Like she somehow got inside my heart and wrote my soul down on paper. I really don't have any words that I can string together to do a review for The Raven King justice; I'll just say that it changed me forever, I'm eternally grateful to have had this reading experience, and that I'll never forget it. Thank you, Maggie Stiefvater.

Blue, Gansey, Adam, and Ronan all have a piece of my heart that I will never get back. In return, they will stay with me forever.

“He closed his eyes and he began to dream.”

Stupendous

The writing is beautiful Will Patton's voice , timing and expression of each character exquisite. The series has been a delight and although it is a young adult fiction this 52-year-old has been enthralled. I hope there are more to come

5 Star Series

The final installment of The Raven Cycle that was worth waiting for. There is a richness of detail that is each character; the values of friendship & sacrifice that are woven in several layers throughout; and the magic that is life and creation. These books are not for emotionally limited characters who revel in a vision of dystopian society; rather they are for those who dare to dream of, and reach for, more. Will Patton is absolutely perfect is narrator for the series: the differentiation of characters, the communication of emotion, even the levels of southern accent. 5star all the way.

Great ending

Such a great ending to a wonderful series. I loved the characters especially Ronan. The narrator is fantastic; he is one of my favorites.

beautiful, fierce, wondrous, and painful...

...but most of all, beautiful. The fantastic story of The Raven Cycle is at its most brilliant in this, the fourth installment of the series. Thank you Maggie Stiefvader for creating such magic in a world whose magic is hidden in plain sight. Thank you to Will Patton for so vividly and passionately bringing it to life.

We need more naturally progressing gay story lines

Thank you for this one. And thank you for this cycle of books in general. I am sad there isn't more.

Final book of the best series I've read in years

Would you listen to The Raven King again? Why?

yes, I've already listened to it multiple times. I am a huge fan of Will Patton's narration, and I feel like no one else could have captured the mood of these books the way he did.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gansey. He is the heart of all of it.

Which scene was your favorite?

I honestly cannot pick one, the whole thing was magical and I was so caught up that I wanted to live in that world!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

many moments, interactions between Ronan and Blue, Henry and Gansey, Gansey and Ronan, Blue and Mr. Gray, Calla and Maura, Ronan and his brothers, I could go on and on.

Any additional comments?

Maggie Stiefvater is an amazing writer, these books made me feel so many things, I was so spellbound by this world, but I also felt connections to almost every single character. It's been awhile since I have been able to completely lose myself in a story. I want more!

Now that's how you finish a series!

Wow! I have absolutely fallen in love with Blue and the Raven boys. And this story did not disappoint! The story catches you up from the very beginning and keeps your heart pumping till the very last word. You will find yourself so swept up in this story that you will audibly (no pun intended) gasp at some points. Will Patton (narrator) is fantastic. Each character has their own voice, and his tone sets the scene so well.

love love loved it!

I'm so sad it's over! I have to say some of my favorite characters were Greenmantle simply because he was charismatic and devious and I loved the way Will Paton performed as him.

I loved the Grey man and I loved the way he developed from a cold hearted hitman to someone who sort of found themselves again.

this whole adventure was just wonderful. I wish there was more to be had! I was heart broken to find that Glendower was not found. I was kind of expecting an epic battle between the King and the demon and the twist in the end with Noah took me by surprise!

Great work. Truly.
