Book Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by 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.

Now, with Blue Lily, Lily Blue, the web becomes even more complex, snaring readers at every turn.

While The Dream Thieves felt like a scorching detour from the search for Glendower, in Blue Lily. Lily Blue, Blue and the Raven Boys have returned to the quest in earnest. As the title indicates Blue is the central figure of this narrative, as the story reveals more of her supernatural ability. Adam is the Magician, Ronan is the Dream Thief, and Blue is a mirror.

The search for her mother and the search for Glendower have more connections than geography. As with the others, Blue's past, present and future intertwine with the fate of ley line and Cabeswater. More twists, more frightening flights of fancy and more deaths.

I raced through this book, breathless and eager to get to the finale, The Raven King.
