Review of “Blue Lily, Lily Blue” by Maggie Steifvater

Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3)Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series just keeps getting better and better!!!

I can’t rave enough about Steifvater’s writing. This continues in the same vein as the other books in the Raven Cycle, and seamlessly flows from one to the other. Stiefvater is consistent – you don’t find yourself forgetting about Blue, Gansey, Adam, or Ronan – and each character always had a voice, a presence, something that they brought to the story.

I also enjoyed the addition of the Greenmantles; Piper with her always hilarious and snide comments, and Colin, who seemed like a bored rich guy who wanted to try his hand at being a mob boss. They were introduced to the story after a certain Gray man does not fulfill the job Colin hired him to do, so this obviously calls for his presence and the need to intimidate others into getting the results Colin wants. They really are a silly, somewhat dramatic, but funny couple.

Because I had planned for this to be a short review (considering there are so many for this book, I didn’t feel the need to really add another that would pretty much talk about the same things), I’ll conclude here by saying that this series has continued to entertain me, and I look forward to concluding the mystery of Glendower in the final book.
