Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

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

I am so glad this was not the end of The Raven Cycle books! There is so much more you learn about the main characters- Blue, Gansey, Ronan, and Adam. Blue's mom has disappeared and Blue vacillates between missing her terribly and being angry that she would leave and not tell anyone where she is or when she will return. Maggie Stiefvater really knows how to build the suspense, all the while providing humor, much of pondering by the boys and Blue, how much they really care about each other even if they don't show it. I liked Malory, one of Gansey's ley line experts who arrives with a dog and moves right in. The Gray Man has become one of my favorite characters and I am so glad this hit man is sticking around- yes, he is a hit man! I disliked Greenmantle and his wife intensely---Ronan and Adam dealt with Greenmantle rather nicely---if only his wife took a powder too! Jesse Dittley was another great addition to the story---his family owns the ground that houses the cursed cave (could Blue's mom be trapped there?)I am really looking forward to #4, Maggie Stiefvater is the queen of fantasy.
